Hank Jacobs - So Far Away/Monkey Hips and Rice

From the crates I bring you this jam. It possesses everything I think epitomizes a perfect rhythm and blues instrumental rager: high energy forward moving beat, an organ that perfectly accents the guitars, absolutely wild piano playing, and of course sparse vocals that are encourage the band to keep it moving. A great track. This is the surprisingly the B-side, that A-side is good but not as good as this one.
