    "Eric Clapton, the archangle of the century"?!
    I heard he was God, but...

    Sounding great, thanx for this thread, should be good.

    Here's Neil Young earlier this year in Calgary doing one of my favorites from his latter output, BUT KEEP THE VOL. LOW TIL HE STARTS AT 45 SECS. IN, THEN CRANK IT! If you have an EQ cut the highs slightly, at least get some bottom in there - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Zo9E...4C5ACF&index=3 A great performance by a legend that keeps getting better every year. The whole show is available from the poster with some equally awesome accoustic stuff like Unknown Legend in fine audio quality. BTW, the Martin D-28 he plays was Hank Williams'!

    Ranked as one of the top three bass players in the world is Victor Wooten, known mostly for playing with the incredible Bela Fleck & The Flecktones. To hear a mind-boggling 5-minute bass solo of "Amazing Grace" go to this link. Spectacular!!!

    Several months ago I was up watching Craig Ferguson and The Late Late Show and I'd dozed off in the middle of it... but suddenly jerked wide awake because my subconcious had alerted me to some amazing music. It was a performance of "Emmanuelle" by Chris Botti on trumpet and featuring the brilliant and delicious Lucia Micarelli.
    (If you've never heard of her, she's a 26 year old Korean-Italian trained at Juilliard and played with an orchestra when she was only 6 years old. She's also toured with Josh Groban and with Jethro Tull. A musical prodigy and verrrry sexy!)
    Five minutes of musical heaven from the Craig Ferguson show is at this link. She has many more videos on YouTube. Check 'em out.

    Ditto that. Outrageous.

    Raul Midon, my favorite one man band, making his tv debut on Letterman...and (eventually) with India Arie at the North Sea Jazz Festival. His sight has been replaced with enhanced musicality, I think.

    Ray Charles, Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino and a young Paul Shaffer. Good ol' rockin' music, this video almost always gets me up and moving or at least my toes tapping.

    Wow; that was tremendous and unexpected. Gotta look for that album. Oh, and I think Lucia's dress had some problems with the seam in the front, but I KNOW you guys will forgive her for that.

    As with Lucia, you can search "Victor Wooten" on YouTube and see lots more of him. I originally saw that version of "Amazing Grace" on a PBS Soundstage special called Bela Fleck & The Flecktones, Live At The Quick amphitheater -- I ordered the DVD immediately and watch it often. It's awesome! I love showing it to other musician friends and watching their reactions.

    Lucia plays with such emotion, it's just amazing. Pours her soul into every single note.
    As for her dress... Gee, I hadn't noticed.

    There's another one that I have bookmarked and posted here somewhere a couple of years ago. It's a teenage boy, obviously sitting in his bedroom and playing Pachelbel's "Canon" in an amazing lead guitar solo. The video is just over 5 minutes; good at the start and really picks up and sizzles at about the 3:30 mark. Watch it at this link.
    Also posted in another thread here was this video of Michael McDonald and James Ingram doing "Yah Mo B There." This one is about 4:30. (There was a longer one that includes at least two minutes of some sizzling hot percussion solos, but it's been removed for copyright violations. Grrrr.) Side note: Michael's wife, Amy Holland, is the blonde backup singer on the right-hand side.
    Many folks don't know that Michael was part of Steely Dan. You can see a rare live performance by them of "Do It Again" at this link.
    And did anyone see Craig Ferguson's "Late Late Show" last night? Musical guest was Christopher Cross singing the classic "Ride Like The Wind" with Michael McDonald and backed up by The Roots. I don't think the video has made it online yet.

    One of my favorite artists of all-time, Bobby McFerrin.

    "Ave Maria" (Gounod's composition, IMO, the best)

    "Hush Little Baby"

    "Lullaby of Birdland"

    Another "Ave Maria." It's amazing listening to the audience singing along.

    Whether you're a Doobie Brothers fan or not, you'll be saying Oh… My… GAWD!!! There’s 8 minutes of absolute magic at this link!
    First Patrick Simmons and John McFee play about 2 minutes of "Slack Key Soquel Rag" (Patrick is a Maui resident and loves slack key so he wrote this song), then they and the band go right into "South City Midnight Lady."

    This a great thread (thanks for starting it, MM!) so let's keep it alive!
    Here, for your dining and dancing pleasure, is Bonnie Raitt doing "Something To Talk About". Go to this link!
    And Bonnie doing "I Can't MakeYou Love me" is at this link. Wow!

    Back in the 70s during my radio days I came across a song called "Luxury Liner" by Emmylou Harris with unbeliveably spectacular and wickedly fast guitar picking by the legendary Albert Lee. You can see them together at this link and you can see Albert doing it with his band Hogan's Heroes at this link.
    And go to this link to see him play it even faster!
    Eric Clapton, eat your heart out.

    Albert Lee again, from the David Letterman show in 2001, doing "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" starring Earl Scruggs, and with Jerry Douglas, Glen Duncan, Vince Gill, Steve Martin (you know he rips on banjo, right?), Gary Scruggs, Randy Scruggs, Paul Shaffer, Harry Stinson and Marty Stuart. Here's the link.

    I used to play this track regularly on the radio, JUST BECAUSE of that amazing guitar solo. Good pick, LN.

    Thanks, LL!
    And hey, today is the 18th anniversary of the death of Freddie Mercury. So go to this link to hear him and Queen with the classic "Bohemian Rhapsody."
    RIP, Freddie. There'll never be another one like you.

    In homage, Ryan posted this version of "BR" - by the Muppets.

    The first time I noticed Albert Lee was years ago on Dave Edmunds’ album, “Repeat When Necessary.” Albert does a little walk on, ripping up the lead on a song called “Sweet little Lisa.” Here is a link to Albert’s band playing the song, while they smoke; I still prefer the Dave Edmunds’ version.

    Here's Emmylou live at Wembley in London in 1984 with Albert Lee.
