Settle in to that Geraint Watkins groove.

You may know Geraint Watkins as a side-man to the likes of Nick Lowe and Van Morrison. He also plays a mean accordion!

Here's Mr. Watkins back on keyboards, with a bluesy version of the great Van Dyke Parks / Brian Wilson tune, Heros and Villains. I heard him play this one a few years ago at Lee's Palace here in Toronto when he was opening the show for (and backing) Nick Lowe.

Finally, Watkins and co. mess around with Johnny B. Goode. It sounds kind of like a Cab Calloway thing through part of it.
