Speaks his mind on music & movies!
Here’s the first of a few of CB’s favorite solos. I’ve had this idea floating around for a long time and one of the solos that keeps speaking to me is Sid (Symphony Sid) Paige’s great violin work on Dan Hick’s ‘I Scare Myself’. I have other violin solos I like but I’ll start with this one.
I think you know that I’m a huge Hicks fan. Whether its with the Hot Licks, Acoustic Warriors etc. Whomever. He always had top notch players. I would have dug this song no matter what but when Sid does his thing it takes it to a special place for me. I love the violin/fiddle and Paige’s solo on that instrument is just candy for my ear. You hear him throw out a few teasers then two and half minutes in he does his magic. CB was gonesville. Who needs drugs when you can take a trip like this.
CB’s mantra for his takes is “Music or Movies that move him”. Sid’s solo does that big-time.
Here’s the version I first heard. The Hot Licks cook on this but Paige takes the spotlight. The other link is from an Austin City Limits broadcast. Hicks combines two of his bands for a live take with Sid taking the lead.
If you like Django and Grappelli you should dig this. Scare yourself with Sid
