Friday music: If you don't love jazz, you hate America

A twofer this afternoon/tonight.  "My Old Flame," for the falling out between Trump and Steve Bannon.  I'm giving you two versions.  First, Joe Pass's version, from his most acclaimed album, Virtuoso.  Joe Pass is widely, and appropriately revered as one of the greatest jazz guitarists of all time.  Unfortunately, less well-known was Lenny Breau.  Lenny was, if anything, even more impressive than Joe.  Here is a version that Lenny recorded as a kid of 20.  Yes, that's really Levon Helm and Rick Danko playing with him.  The very same.
