Slide guitar and harmonica – it's a classic blues combination that remains vibrant and alive in the hands of Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite, who proved it last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

They stuck around afterward to perform a second tune, "You Found Another Lover (I Lost Another Friend)." Both songs come from their recent album together Get Up!This article originally appeared on Rolling Stone: Ben Harper, Charlie Musselwhite Bring the Blues to 'Kimmel'
