I suppose that Mclaughlin's playing has slowed down a bit...

Marshall Allen is almost 100, Roscoe Mitchell is 83, but it seems like jazz doesn't exist.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

I just saw Buddy Guy a couple weeks ago... still kicking.

I saw Bob Dorough do a wonderful show when he was a ripe old 92.

Actually Shakti won a Grammy last night.
Saw them last year and they were amazing although John does sit around for a large portion of it.
Saw him a few years ago and he jammed a whole set plus a set with his and Jimmy Herring's band doing a Mahavishnu set.

i saw Buddy Guy again last year. i believe the tour was billed as his farewell. He already seemed to have slowed down from the time i saw him around five years back, and his voice seemed fainter when telling his stories between numbers, though it may have just been the loud traffic noise from I-70, since they built the open air amphitheater he played in right off of it for some reason.

I also took my fiancee to see Barry Manilow last year. Obviously not a favorite of mine, but I have to admit he looks and sounds great for an eighty year old. Plus he came across very funny, not afraid to make fun of himself, and at one point greatly impressed me by playing some mean salsa style piano!
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?
