    Arguably the only Guitarist who’s achieved what Django was searching for when he toured with Ellington...

    One of those times when I should be able to give this 11 " LIKE's ".....!!!!KILLER!!!! This sure woke me up!!!! Thanks!!!!! Besides George Porter( the Meters ) on bass there is Johnny Vidacovich on drums and Jon " King " Cleary on piano, great band!!! Years ago in the London pubs, there was a killer New Orleans style band called Jon " King " Cleay and the Savage Mooses, they were fantastic!

    Met Snooks at the New Orleans Jazz Festival circa 1983. Saw him rip it up later at Tipitina's. Drop the bomb y'all! Think we also witnessed John Cleary that trip.

    Jon looks so young, back then. And Jon was born and raised in the UK, if you can believe that, y'all.

    I can remember wishing, Snooks would do a little something to his guitar tone. You see, we didn't actually recognize Eaglin for being a world class player then; strange as that may seem. Or, I didn't. New Orleans was such an embarrassment of riches then.

    Notice how long Snooks' fingers are. Then think about Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, similar long loose fingers, who everyone was nuts about. Ergonomically, the main difference is Snooks' right arm is past 90 degrees, bent. And Clarence's elbow is almost straight. Think about how big a role this might have, in the net effect.
