I Went To The Crossroads

Americana & blues

Tonight's show is a one hour track from The Necks

The Necks are a cool Australian trio getting rave reviews from the cognoscenti of rock. They play improvisational jazzy music (think, maybe, Keith Jarrett?). This was recently voted one of their top 3 albums (they have been going for about 30 years) and is a one hour track called Open. Give it a try, you never know, you might just see what the fuss is about.
