Default Blues Brothers

I just purchased the Blues Brothers "Briefcase Full of Blues" and Steve Jordan sounds great! Anyone know if Steve plays on any other of the Blues brothers albums?

From what I understand that was all he did, the drum chair went to someone else for the movie and subsequent albums. If you know your Saturday Night Live history, that band was mostly made up of the guys that played on Saturday Night Live back then. And that particular concert was recorded in L.A. as an opening act for comedian Steve Martin. Shortly after that Steve Jordan turned up on the Late Night with David Letterman show for several years. I'm a fan - I played that vinyl record until you could see through it ;)

Oh hell yeah! What a great record! Steve Jordan also plays with Keith Richards X-Pensive Winos on the album Main Offender, but I haven't heard it.

If you haven't heard Try! (John Mayer Trio live album), you really should. World class grooving all over that one!

That John Mayer album surprised me - and I admit I bought it because Steve Jordan's and Pino Palladino's names were on the cover. As big as John Mayer is, I'd never heard of him. I was pleasantly surprised. I understand Keith Carlock is in the John Mayer drumseat now, yes?

+1, +2, +3, +4!!

Played on (and co-wrote most tracks on) both of Keef's X-Pensive Winos albums (Main Offender and Talk Is Cheap....plus the live album, Live At The Hollywood Palladium).

And of course, I'll second the John Mayer Trio's, "Try!". A very bluesy effort from Mayer, with both Steve Jordan and Pino Palladino at their best........the rhythm section from hell!!

Pure, unadulterated groove!! If anyone ever wants to know what "in the pocket" means......I give you these two cats as a living example.

Yea I have the Try album... I love it. I read an article where he says that he is purposely playing less fill and more groove. He is the MAN!

Steve Jordan played on Briefcase, and then on Made in America, and I believe one other one. Willie Hall played a few tunes on Made in America, and then I think he took over.

Then Danny Gotlieb played on Red, White, & Blues and toured with them for a bit.

Carlock toured with them for a while, Anton Fig recorded the soundtrack to the second movie, and I believe he toured with them for a minute.

Keith Carlock also played in The Nuff Brothers, which was a side project by Lou Marini, and a handful of other Blues Brothers members are on that.

Currently, and for the past seven or eight years my uncle, Lee Finkelstein, has been their live drummer, and I know they've done tons of live recordings, but I don't think they were made into LP's or albums or anything like that.

Any other questions I can pass them onto him..

Is your uncle the drummer on the "Toronto Rocks" DVD from 2004? Dan Ackroyd and Jim Belushi and the band were billed as the "Have Love, Will Travel Revue." I've wondered who the drummer is, but couldn't find a credit anywhere. Great band, and I love the drumming!

I believe he was. I remember him telling me something about that, but I can't remember if he said he played it. He's asleep at the moment, but I'll find out tomorrow.

Okay, I spoke with him this morning, and he was not. He started playing with them very shortly after that, but it was Tony Braunagel on Toronto Rocks.

Carlock is on tour with Steely Dan right now, and will be through 2012. I think John Mayer Dropped him not long after picking him up. Keith is the man, but is way overqualified for that gig, in my opinion.
