Damn them 11's get straight down to business:

Wow. That is an amazing performance.

It sounds like the rhythm section and vocals stay more or less consistent but T-Bone is playing whatever his heart and soul tell him to play from one moment to the next. Sublime (the adjective, not the band).

Yeah, he's on top of the progression at all the right moment, but other than that he's just doin' what he feels, which is what the blues is all about.

It really is one of my favorite blues numbers. I especially like The Allman Bros. cover of it on At Fillmore East:

Hey you guys check out Zack Rosicka. He covers "While We Cry" by Kenny Wayne. This kid is a force to be reckoned with on guitar guys

hey, I've been wanting to get into Jazz and Blues for a while, but I'm not sure where to start.

Can anyone suggest some blues rock that is a bit progressive maybe, or just some classical blues that everyone can enjoy, maybe a compilation album.

And on the jazz front, I need some artists to listen too as well. I'm not very knowledgeable on Jazz sub genres, but I don't think I like the popular female jazz singers you always seem to hear about. I'm looking for something more along the experimental creative area of things.

Appreciate any suggestions, thanks!

Here's a couple from The Paul Butterfield Blues Band that are a combo of Blues and Jazz.

For Jazz:

Albert Ayler - Spiritual Unity
Charles Mingus - The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady
Jaco Pastorius - Jaco Pastorius
Don Wilkerson - Elder Don
Peter Brotzmann - Machine Gun
Peter Brotzmann - Guts
Peter Brotzmann - Right As Rain
Surrender To the Air - Surrender To the Air
Eric Dolphy - Out To Lunch
Kenny Drew - Undercurrent
John Coltrane - Interstellar Space

Those (for the most part) verge on the more experimental...to say the very least. But anyway, if you're interested in checking 'em out and need a link, I'm just a PM away.
