    This is an extraordinary artist whose powerful performances also contain nuance and wisps of echoes past within her own unique and incredible style. There is no one like her.

    This tune, made popular by Albert King, appears here by a number of artists because it's so good. Reading comments someone says that Joe is playing one of Albert King's guitars; because King was left-handed Joe has to use the instrument upside-down. Something special about that bit of information.

    This band says it plays music for your brain and your booty. I checked. It's true. Now, for your thinking and dancing pleasure here's...

    Snarky Puppy

    As has been previously mentioned an orchestra can add, if done right, a pleasing texture and richness to a group that plays a different sound. This is another example.

    Cory Henry, the phenomenal organ player of Snarky Puppy has his own group, The Funk Apostles. This selection, his version of Marvin Gaye's What's Goin' On, contains inspired creativity, exquisite intricacy, addicting rhythm, and beauty all delivered with verve.

    It's a powerful example of why jazz is not just inventive but exciting, too.

    As I have said here, my main intention is to present artists that may not be well known. This amazing, yes amazing group of musicians, ranks as one of the best finds of my career. lol

    This piece is a new, I assume, composition by Jacob Collier, with Big Ed Lee on tuba. This is a quirky, passionate, lovely, and driving melody and performance that qualifies for another adjective - exceptional.

    If you like the "Puppy" don't miss this. Watch the audience and the other musicians. It's a party, y'all.

    What started out as adding a few tunes in different places along the way from a newly-found band has morphed into a large number of posts showcasing them because they are very good. Over time they added great singers which made them even more enjoyable. It is now appropriate to promote their music by focusing on them in one space. Based on my research there will be more exceptional music in the future from...

    Morblus A great band from Verona, Italy.

    Morblus is led by Roberto Morbioli.

    In addition to the great Diane Blue above they appear with many other female blues singers. This appearance showcases Justina Lee Brown, who provides her lyrics with exceptional power and feeling. There are many other videos of her on YT that show even more that she is a major talent in music today anywhere.

    Daniele Scala, on the Hammond, is tops and shows why beginning at 4:20.

    Continual research sometimes uncovers additional great music and can result in a desire to enlarge (and maybe move) an artist's selections from a different page (22 in this case) to their own as done with Morblus.

    Tedeschi and Trucks individual bands were replaced with a new one (plus they got married) and it is now considered by many to be one of the best. There are some great Derek and the Dominos covers here.

    Derek Trucks has a background playing many different types of music as a former member of the Allman Bros Band and then on his own before starting TTB with Susan Tedeschi. This selection combines styles and shows how this group can do anything at the highest level.

    Individual countries have distinctive instruments that make interesting and frequently beautiful sounds.There are even machines, real or imagined, that contribute their “music.”

    I tried to use only actual ethnic videos but visual and/or sound quality did not always make that possible.

    Here are some great examples.

    This thread seems to be the most logical place to post the video of the Grand Rapids LipDub, an amazing (and horribly-named) ten-minute live performance of Don McLean's American Pie by an unseen singer/guitarist who travels through the city while various groups of people lip-sync. Among them are dancers, cheerleaders, firefighters, police officers and a marching band and others. The entire video was shot in a single take. YouTube also has a "making-of" video that shows all the planning, rehearsals and effort that went into the Grand Rapids LipDub. The video was produced to promote tourism. I don't know if the video attracted visitors to Grand Rapids but it certainly is fun to watch:

    I came across this group on PBS. That appearance had two violinists, a drummer and a DJ. Their musical influences are diverse so there is nothing quite like them.

    I don't usually add videos of a group's background but because of their stated focus on helping promote youth enrichment through music I feel it's important.

    Reading the comments below Candy Dulfer's version I decided to listen to Roy Hargrove's especially since he wrote it. As with most things, especially music, opinions can vary widely. Yes, Dulfer's is softer but the flugelhorn player adds much. Hargrove's is clearly more complex, more textured. Both are great.
