Yep, Harper Simon is Paul Simon's son. The one he sings about in St. Judy's Comet and Graceland. I have his new self-titled album and I really like it. It's kind of a cross between Bob Dylan's Nashville Skyline and Paul Simon's solo stuff. His voice is kind of froggy, so it's probably not everyone's cup of tea (although he sounds a lot more like Paul on the album's studio recordings which have a more polished vocal track), but I love the Sweetheart of the Rodeo-esque country-blues-rock sound. Here's another song from the same Jimmy Kimmel Live episode:
Oh yeah, and guess who that guy is in the white shirt with the blue guitar? Dave Rawlings! Remember him?
