From this excellent Chicago Blues compilation, here’s a sweet and laid back instrumental piano blues from Colin Banagan. Minimal accompaniment by upright bass and smooth, brush-stick drumming provides an elegant backdrop for the piano man to stretch out in every which way. “Blues for the Lady,” ladies and gents. A magnificent, understated recording.
