Neo-soul/blues singer Jordan Harman and Chris Blankenship did the duo thing on Thursday (12.14.12) at Blue 5 Restaurant. These two play together a lot, whether in this configuration or with a full band. And they work really well together. Plus, Blankenship is one of the best guitarists going in this city.
Here they go on a bluesy old holidaze classic — “Merry Christmas Baby.” The drinkers and chatters are nearly as loud as the players, but you can still hear the taste and soul.
Heads up — Harman and Blankenship are getting together on New Year’s Eve with keyboardist Keith Thomas, drummer Carlos Aranguren and bassist Jake Dempsey at The Patrick Henry’s Penny Deux Lounge. Should be hot.
