Playing For Change



Low Down Dirty Christmas


This Holiday video, “Low Down Dirty Christmas”, features the Playing For Change Band. It was recorded live outside in Sao Paulo, during a tour in Brazil. This song, composed by our friend Tom Canning, takes us back to our roots of the Blues and Soul music with feeling.

    A classic. This is, first and foremost, a magnificent example of confident, talented and highly motivated musicians making music together to release the cathartic effect of perfectly executed blues.
    They each take their solo with grace, generosity and great style. It’s not fair to pick out any individual contributions but Tula’s voice has been playing havoc with the hairs on the back of my neck since One Love – episode 3 of Playing for Change. playingforchange.com/episodes/one-love/
    Thank you so much.

    I’ll put it right beside White Christmas by Clyde McPhatter & The Drifters.

    Haven’t added anything to that one song list in about 50 years.
