Late Night Pick: Gary Clark Jr.

It's all repeats tonight on late night TV so let's pick one from just 10 days ago with up and coming blues guitarist/singer, Gary Clark Jr. on Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC at 11:35 PM. I've been listening to Gary's album, "Blak and Blu", quite a bit and it's a damn fine album. All over the place stylistically (hard rock/blues, funk, retro R&B, hip-hop) which works most of the time. At the very least, you know that he can go in any direction and with the way he plays guitar, I'll be happy to follow him for years to come. After Gary played on Jimmy's lot stage, he hung out and did a mini-show for those in attendance. Here's Gary & the band doing the Hendrix classic "Third Stone From the Sun" into Johnny Taylor's "Love Me Like You Say":
