Saturday Music Club: With Strings

Bobby Ingano and friends:

The Seldom Scene:

Buffy Sainte Marie (and Carroll Spinney?):

Turtle Island String Quartet:

Max Roach Double Quartet (Max Roach Quartet and Maxine Roach's Uptown String Quartet):

Laurindo Almeida and the Modern Jazz Quartet:

Cuarteto Zupay (lyrics: Jorge Luis Borges):

Uncle Earl:

Sam Bush Band with Emmylou Harris:

Fairport Convention:
(Oddly, lots of photos of Sandy Denny displayed here, and she's not yet in the band; Judy Dyble was the female lead singer and multi-instrumentalist for the first recording version of the band.)

Maxine Sullivan:


  1. And as one commenter on the video notes, one wonders if SESAME STREET today would be comfortable with the lyrics to "Cripple Creek" she performs here. For fairly obvious reasons I missed most of her performances there, and I'm pretty sure I've already posted my favorite of her recordings, her setting of Leonard Cohen's poem "God is Alive, Magic is Afoot"...
