Phish Lays Down One Of Their Best Jams Ever On ‘Waves,’ Five Years Ago Today

first_imgWarming up for a three-night stand at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in Bethel Woods, NY, Phish got into town one night early to set themselves up for the musical mayhem. The group proceeded to play a soundcheck that lasted for hours, weaving through their catalog with musical fluidity. Among the great jams from that session, one stands alone: the 5/26/11 “Waves.”Released by archivist Kevin Shapiro on his “From The Archives” series, the version of “Waves” is something to behold. The band works in “A Love Supreme” themes and gets quite melodic throughout the soundcheck. Without the crowd to please, the band takes extra musical liberties throughout, and the result is simply sublime.Without further ado, the 5/26/11 “Waves.”last_img

22-Year-Old Derek Trucks Shreds With His Band At Trenton’s Conduit, On This Day In 2001 [Audio]

first_imgBefore there was the Tedeschi Trucks Band, and before his time as a guitarist in the Allman Brothers Band, a young Derek Trucks toured under his own name with a band he started when he was just fifteen years old. The young slide guitar prodigy – nephew of Allman Brothers Band drummer Butch Trucks – recruited talented musicians to join him on the road–some of whom are still with him today in TTB. Venturing into the blues, southern rock, jazz, gospel, soul, funk, with some Hindustani classical music, afro-beat, and world fusion mixed in, Derek Trucks’ exploratory nature was on full display in his early years.On November 30th, 2001, the Derek Trucks Band played at the Conduit in Trenton, New Jersey. The band flawlessly executed a mix of complicated arrangements throughout the performance like Jimmy Reed’s “Ain’t That Lovin’ You”, “Chicken”, and notably, “Afro Blue” by Afro-Caribbean-jazz percussion legend, Mongo Santamaria. Also worth mentioning is the set-closing cover of Bobby “Blue” Bland’s “Turn On Your Lovelight”, as popularized over the years by the Grateful Dead.Thanks to the taper community, fans can relive the band’s November 2001 performance in Trenton below.Tedeschi Trucks Band – Conduit – November 30th, 2001[Audio: Lunchbox16]Setlist: Derek Trucks Band | Conduit | Trenton, New Jersey | 11/30/2001Set: Crowd, Preachin’ Blues, Chicken, I Believe, Kam-Ma-Lay, Driftin’, Mr. PC, Ain’t That Lovin’ You, Everything is Everything, Like Anyone Else, Joyful Noise, Afro Blue (Mongo Santamaria cover), Turn On Your Lovelight (Bobby “Blue” Bland cover)Notes:This is one of the shows when Sean O’Rourke filled in on drums after Yonrico Scott was sidelined by heart surgerylast_img read more

Long Awaited Grateful Dead Documentary Will Soon Be Available On Amazon

first_imgAfter years of planning, an extensive documentary about the Grateful Dead is set to premiere at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival soon. However, until now, no plans for a release outside of Sundance had been announced. That’s all changing, however, as Hollywood Reporter broke the news that the film Long Strange Trip will be acquired by Amazon on May 26th.Directed by Amir Bar Lev and produced by Martin Scorsese, Eric Eisner, Nick Koskoff, and Alex Blavatnik, Long Strange Trip chronicles the Dead throughout their entire 30 year career, as well as the years after the death of guitarist Jerry Garcia. The documentary will span several hours as it compiles new and unreleased footage from the band’s historic career, and will be broken into six parts for the Amazon release.“I’ve always admired the spirit and creativity of the Grateful Dead,” said Scorsese in a press release. “They are revolutionary artists who forever changed the world of touring and recording live music. They were a cultural force — a lifestyle, that continue to influence new generations of fans. This film will entertain and educate audiences about one of the most innovative and groundbreaking American bands of the 20th century.”Guitarist Bob Weir adds, “Over several decades a group of guys hung together making music in a group that was way tighter and lasted much longer than most marriages. Here’s the movie….” Mickey Hart added of the film, “Stranger than fiction — a user’s guide for an impossible journey.”All four of the surviving band members plan to attend the film’s premiere at Sundance as well.last_img read more
