   Al Kooper reunited with members of The Blues Project, The Prisoners of 2nd Avenue and the Funky Faculty to celebrate his 65th birthday in style.  Click here for an in-depth review of what was in store for a packed house at B.B. King's Nightclub in New York City on February 7, 2009

   Allen Bloomfield, Michael's brother, was invited on stage and presented the Michael Bloomfield signature Les Paul to guitarist Jimmy Vivino for the performance of two Bloomfield/Kooper classics.
