My friend , William Clary, brought to my attention that there is a batch of new Danny Gatton videos floating around.
The first one is a montage of different footage; Gatton improvising over a variety of things and just flat blowing!
The second clip is a delightful Rimsky-Korsakov cover…
BTW click here to access this channel that has a wealth of Gatton.
Roy Buchanan or Danny Gatton?
“Red Label” by Danny Gatton.
It’s a delightful piece of music.
I’ve said this before…when Gatton comes up in the discussion, it always gets around to the chops. The guy was just extremely musical…beyond the chops. But, the thing is, to play music like this, you got to have the chops. But, the chops shouldn’t get in the way of the music.
Nice trumpet solo by Bill Holliman btw.
As always, click pause on the music player located in the side bar before playing the YouTube; chop chop.
