Conan O’Brien Writes Chicago Blues Songs With School Kids

Here’s a little something to end your week with a smile: Conan O’Brien improvising the blues with a group of first graders. The segment was taped in Chicago–home of the electric blues–during the Conan show’s one-week stand there last month. O’Brien and his bandleader, Jimmy Vivino, brought their guitars to the Frances Xavier Warde elementary school on the city’s Near West Side to investigate what a group of six- and seven-year-olds might be blue about. The result is the sad, sad, “No Chocolate Blues.”
