Special jam session with Paul Kype, Shawn Worden and Chilliwack’s Jerry Adolphe

Even I need time away from covering  live music, so usually afternoon shows and jam sessions  don’t end up getting covered.

So I made a point of  going to Honker’s Pub’s always popular Saturday afternoon jam, April 6 when I learned that Chilliwack drummer Jerry Adolphe was in town and would be at the jam. And sure enough he was. Host Paul Kype  played a couple solo blues songs on acoustic guitar, welcomed up another musician, then his wife Jenn Kype to sing a beautiful duet of “Shallow” from  “A Star is Born.”

 And then, after by a quick set of blues  rock from most of Driving while Blind, plus some excellent harp, the magic began.

 Kype welcomed Adolphe on stage with bassist Shawn Worden who played  a couple songs   from Paul Kype and Texas Flood’s new CD “Blues From Rosie, featuring Adolphe on drums.
 Kype noted Adolphe was in town to record a new EP from Jenn Kype, and changed his flight so he could play the jam. So that was special on it’s own and even more so when the trio really locked in with each other.

They began with my favourite track from the Cd “ If You Could Read my Mind.” and followed it up with “Outlaw Game.”

 Worden, who  doesn’t usually play with Kype,  fit in like he played with him for years.
 They added a couple covers including  Blind Faith’s “I Can’t Find My Way Home,” from the Cd and  a beautiful version of Van Morrison’s “Into The Mystic” and added Steve Ray Vaughan’s  “Pride and Joy,” to  show off some of Kype’s substantial guitar chops.
