Now's the Time: Jeff Beck
It may be less jazz than blues and rock, but I just can't resist posting this clip of Jeff Beck performing Charles Mingus' "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat." According to a sidebar accompanying Joel Francis' feature on the British guitarist, the tribute to Kansas City native Lester Young is a staple at Beck's gigs. Here's hoping he performs it at Starlight Theater on Wednesday, April 28.
