Blues-Rock Heaven: 'Short Fuse' - Roy Buchanan

If you're into high octane blues-rock, this tune by Roy Buchanan called 'Short Fuse' will be your ticket. He's known as one of the pioneers on the Fender Telecaster, and was known as a very influential guitarist.

This song is on the 1985 album, 'When a Guitar Plays the Blues'. Enjoy and rock it!

'Accident' - Curtis Fuller

Trombonist Curtis Fuller, one of the hard-bop greats, released his great album 'Images of Curtis Fuller' in 1960, and the title track 'Accident' has become a standard in it's own right.

It also helps to have heavy hitters Lee Morgan and Wilbur Harden on trumpet, Jimmy Garrison on bass, McCoy Turner on piano (Turner and Garrison would become the part of the John Coltrane Classic Quartet later), Yusuf Lateef on sax, and Bobby Donaldson on drums.

Enjoy this classic track and start boppin!
