Wednesday's 8-20 Tin Star Jam

Last night a bunch of people showed up to help "Freaky Que Suave" Freddie Lopez celebrate his birthday. Freddie wasn't making a big deal out of it, but we enjoyed helping him celebrate.

Happy Birthday Freddie!

Click any picture to enlarge, click the play button to listen to a music link.

An extra helping of Santa Fe's and Albuquerque's very own musicians showed up for the occasion. I won't try to name them all, but you will recognize them when you see their pictures. We kicked off the evening with some good old-fashioned blues.

Here are some of the players:

A bit later in the evening the musical herd had thinned out some, and Murali, perhaps saddened by having noted the ravages that time had wreaked on Freddie, kicked off a tear-jerking version of St. James Infirmary Blues.

Craig revived our spirits by following with some Jump And Jive.

It made Ray want to bust a move.

Tone said that Ray's move hurt his eyes.

It knocked Neil's hat sideways.


The crowd all agreed that it would probably be best if Ray kept his moves to himself from now on.

He plays a pretty mean guitar, though. Seriously, Ray: we love ya!

Glad you could all make it out last night to help Freddie celebrate! See you next time.
