I put up some Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong with this morning's post, so I'm going back to Dylan-bashing with something different. This isn't really jazz, but it's jazz-adjacent.
Back in the '70s, Randall Bramblett played saxophone for a jazz-rock fusion offshoot from the Allman Brothers called Sea Level. He also has a raspy voice that works, unlike Dylan's, and, in my opinion, is a better writer. Here he is, doing a sort of modern beatnik thing, complete with some of his jazzy saxophone playing. The album is a great piece of work, musing on growing up as a white boy in the South, listening to blues, R&B, and other stuff that he wasn't supposed to, combined with other stuff about regional identity, and, well, it's a great album. And he's better than Dylan.
