When Jimmie Vaughan isn't out fronting his big Tilt-A-Whirl band, there's nothing he likes more than grooving in this fine trio at C-Boy's Heart and Soul in his hometown of Austin, TX. These very cool recordings - oozing with the late-night club atmosphere of Steve Wertheimer's gem on South Congress Avenue - perfectly capture Mike Flanigin's mastery of the mighty Hammond B3 and Frosty Smith's attentive drumming which form the bedrock for Jimmie to lay down some of that trademark peckin' guitar.
Jimmie Vaughan's style as a player, songwriter and bandleader can be thought of as an amalgamation of so many influences. Known for his deceptively simple yet complex attack, his clean, uncluttered style capitalizes on conveying the emotion and message within the music, He utilizes raw emotion, simplicity, and an elegance that is powerful and accessible, yet communicates exactly what he feels inside.
It's an approach that has earned him the respect of many of the greats of contemporary music, and guest appearances on such albums as B.B. King and Eric Clapton's Riding With The King, Bob Dylan's Under The Red Sky, Willie Nelson's Milk Cow Blues, Carlos Santana's Havana Moon and Don Henley's Inside Job.
