that zydeco shuffle was nice.
i never heard of this guy...
clearly he is a master of the instrument
another not very well known musician i have been listening to lately is jandek.
sorry to hijack your thread but a snippet
Jandek is the musical project of Sterling Richard Smith, an outsider musician who operates out of Houston, Texas. Since 1978, Jandek has self-released
over 70 albums of unusual, often emotionally dissolute folk and blues songs without ever granting more than the occasional interview or providing any
biographical information. Jandek often plays a highly idiosyncratic and frequently atonal form of folk and blues music, often using an open and
unconventional chord structure.
Only a handful of people claimed to have successfully contacted Jandek before he began regularly playing in public (see below). He releases albums
through his own record label Corwood Industries, keeping a Houston post office box so fans can write to Corwood for a typewritten catalogue and order
Jandek’s albums, usually at low prices. Many of his albums feature pictures of a certain man at various ages; although it seemed likely, it was not
until Jandek's live debut in 2004 that it became certain that the man depicted on the album covers was the principal performer.
Jandek now often performs live with other musicians, but these collaborations remain the extent of his engagement with the public.
you have to hunt for it but he has a lot of material out there
