    Bill Evans’ Soulgrass residency at the Blue Note in NYC continued last night, where the band’s guests for both sets were Umphrey’s McGee guitarist Jake Cinninger and MMW keyboardist John Medeski.

    Just as they did on Thursday night, the ensemble tackled UM’s Glory during the late show. The version they laid down last night was completely different from Thursday’s version, not only because Popper wasn’t on hand but also due to the speed and approach, so we wanted to share MKDevo’s exceptional video of Glory from Friday’s late set. Take a peek…

    The Allman Brothers Band played their 211th show at the Beacon Theatre since 1989 last night for the first of 11 performances that make up the band’s 2013 March Madness run. ABB drummer Butch Trucks previewed the run in interviews and Facebook status updates by advising fans there would be new originals and covers coming. On night one the band delivered a pair of cover debuts as well as the first performance of a new original written by Warren Haynes.

    The first set began and ended with Les Brers In A Minor, an instrumental penned by former ABB member Dickey Betts. Within the opening stanza were a slew of repertoire staples of both the original and cover variety. When the band returned for the second set, they opened with their first-ever cover of Rain by The Beatles. While the Allmans have never covered the tune before, Gregg Allman did record a version of Rain that was first released on the Dreams box set in 1989. Following Trouble No More, the group unveiled a new Warren Haynes original titled Dusk Till Dawn. Another new cover came towards the end of the set, when the Allman Brothers Band jammed Jimi Hendrix’s 1983 (A Merman I Should Turn To Be) into and out of Mountain Jam. One Way Out was the encore on this guest-less first night.

    What did Butch Trucks think of opening night? He shared these thoughts on Facebook: “Damn. What an opening night. Might be one of our best sets ever. I am very sore today from laying with that much power. Gregg was as spot on as he’s been in decades actually pushing us on some of the tunes he use to have trouble with. Life is great and the Beacon seems to be one major hot spot. More new stuff tonight.”

    Here’s the full setlist from the opening March Madness show…

    Set One: Les Brers In A Minor (Intro), Don’t Want You No More > Not My Cross To Bear, Statesboro Blues, Ain’t Wastin Time No More, Good Morning Little Schoolgirl, Midnight Rider, Blind Willie McTell, Leave My Blues At Home, Les Brers In A Minor (Reprise)

    Set Two: Rain (Beatles cover)*, Trouble No More, Dusk Till Dawn*, No One To Run With, Key To The Highway, Don’t Keep Me Wonderin’, 1983 (A Merman I Should Turn To Be) (Jimi Hendrix cover)* -> Mountain Jam -> 1983 -> Mountain Jam (Reprise)

    Encore: One Way Out

    In 2011 Phish’s JEMP Records offered The White Tape for sale on vinyl at the group’s Super Ball IX festival and as part of Record Store Day’s Black Friday promotion. Last year, JEMP sold 5,000 copies of Junta on vinyl for Record Store Day. When we spoke with a representative of JEMP just before Record Store Day 2012 and asked why they released Junta, the response given was “Last year we started with The White Tape, this year we went with Junta…” leading us to believe Lawn Boy would be up next. According to Wax Poetic, a blog dedicated to all things vinyl with a good track record, Phish will indeed release Lawn Boy on vinyl for this year’s Record Store Day in addition to a Page McConnell album and a Trey Anastasio 7″ we posted about last week.

    Wax Poetic says JEMP will put 7,500 copies (2,500 more than last year’s Junta release) of Phish’s second proper studio album, which was originally released in 1990, on sale during Record Store Day on April 20th. Each copy will be individually numbered featuring 2 180g LPs with an etched D side and will also include a download card. We look forward to Phish’s official announcement to find out what process the audio went through before it was pressed on vinyl.

    While Phish releasing Lawn Boy on vinyl for Record Store Day might not be a big surprise, another listing on Wax Poetic is a bit of a shock. The blog lists a Page McConnell LP titled Unsung Cities and Movies Never Made will be released on 180g vinyl. Only 1,000 individually numbered copies of the album will be available. No word on what that album is all about yet [UPDATE: DETAILS HERE] but expect an announcement on that and every Record Store Day release soon.

    Earlier today we told you about Wax Poetic’s report that not only will Phish issue Lawn Boy but that Page McConnell will issue a new LP called Unsung Cities and Movies Never Made for Record Store Day 2013. Now, we’ve got more details about the Phish keyboardist’s new album.

    [Photo by Parker Harrington]

    According to Shawn from our friends at Wax Vinyl, the new album will contain 10 tracks that are instrumental soundtracks for movies not yet made. Here’s the tracklisting and description written by McConnell from the promotional materials for the Record Store Day release of the LP…

    1) Arbor Day
    2) Ava Green
    3) Late Edition
    4) Yakima
    5) Marfa
    6) Barre
    7) Candlestick
    8) Altoona
    9) Soul Etude
    10) The Lemon Drop

    “Movies never made, well, at least not yet.  A series of Soundtracks, maybe….can a soundtrack exist without a film?  Okay, future soundtracks, soundtracks-in-waiting, potential scores searching for a script.  In the meantime, hopefully the listener might develop their own plot lines and imagine a storyboard:  Soul Etude, a period piece; The Lemon Drop, A Psychedelic Coming of Age Film; Late Edition, A spaghetti-western; Candlestick, A murder-mystery (possibly an independent Canadian release); or even Arbor Day, a Lifetime Original made-for-TV-movie.  Sprinkled throughout are a few impressionistic interpretations of unsung cities; not to say these places have never been mentioned in song, but certainly not over sung.  Please enjoy these soundtracks as they float through time, a sort of phantom foreshadowing of films that lay in waiting and cities that, after this release, might be a little less unsung.” – Page McConnell

    Tea Leaf Green bassist Reed Mathis shared the news that he, drummer Gabe Jarrett (Jazz Mandolin Project, Vorcza) and guitarist Adam Zimmon (Shakira) make up Page’s band for album. He also mentions that producer/engineer John Siket of Siket Disc fame was involved.  Mathis went on to say, “We made some amazing music and had some amazing times.” Reed told us that Phish bassist Mike Gordon was kind enough to lend him a pair of basses which he used for the project instead of his main instrument. We look forward to hearing what looks to be a most interesting release. Be sure to keep your eyes on Wax Vinyl for everything you need to know about what to expect on Record Store Day 2013.

    UPDATE (6PM): Euro Phish fan @YomeNetSan advises us that four of the tracks from the new LP were first issued in 2010 on a promo CD titled Page McConnell Film & TV Sampler. From the looks of the photos, it appears the CD was distributed by music licensing firm Music For The Masses and includes an instrumental version of a McConnell-penned song Phish has performed in the past, Halfway To The Moon, as well as a track called Ode School which isn’t on Unsung Cities and Movies Never Made.

    As we mentioned earlier, the Allman Brothers Band kicked off the second set of last night’s March Madness Run opening show at the Beacon Theatre in New York City yesterday with a cover of Rain by The Beatles. Though Gregg Allman had recorded the tune, which was originally released in 1966 as the b-side to Paperback Writer, back in 1985, this was the first time the Allmans played it.

    ABB guitarist Warren Haynes said this about the band’s cover of Rain to Jambands.com, “[Gregg’s version] is based on a version John Lennon did with an acoustic piano and a choir.” Now we can check it out for ourselves as LazyLightning55 has posted a video of the Allman Brothers Band performing Rain. Far from the psychedelic-tinged Beatles original, this version has that signature Allman’s sound…

    Earlier tonight Phish bassist Mike Gordon tweeted about how excited he was to see Amy Helm and her band perform at Higher Ground in South Burlington, Vermont. Not only did he wind up attending the show at the venue’s Showcase Lounge, but he also sat in with Helm and her band.

    Cactus guested on guitar for covers of Peter Rowan’s The Walls of Time, a song he plays with his solo band, and Little Feat’s Roll Um Easy. Later, Gordon strapped on a bass for a cover of (Ain’t That) Good News the title track of Sam Cooke’s Ain’t That Good News LP from 1964. Before tonight, Mike last performed with Amy at the Love For Levon benefit where they were both on stage for Rag Mama Rag. The bassist also attended four past Midnight Rambles at Levon Helm Studios and performed at one. Helm’s tour moves on to Stone Mountain Arts Center in Brownfield, Maine tomorrow.

    Watch Mike Gordon and Amy Helm perform Walls of Time…

    The Allman Brothers Band just completed their second of 11 shows that make up this year’s March Madness Run at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. For their 212th career performance at the Upper West Side venue, they laid down a jam-fueled show that included the run’s first guest, the  dusting off of an original that hadn’t been played in nearly 21 years and two cover debuts.

    The first set featured the second performance of Warren Haynes’ new original Dusk Till Dawn following last night’s debut. The Allman Brothers Band dug deep into their catalog for an original they hadn’t performed in nearly 21 years – Low Down Dirty Mean. The song, which was written by former ABB members Johnny Neel and Dickey Betts, was recorded and released on 1990′s Seven Turns LP. Low Down Dirty Mean was last performed by the Allman Brothers Band on March 20th, 1992. Austin-based singer/songwriter David Grissom was the run’s first guest as he sat in with the Allmans for You Don’t Love Me towards the end of the opening stanza.

    When the band came back for the second set, founding member Gregg Allman was sporting an acoustic guitar for what seems to be the Allman Brothers Band debut of Long Black Veil, written by Danny Dill and Marijohn Wilkin and covered by the likes of Johnny Cash, The Band and even Gregg Allman and Warren Haynes themselves at last year’s Love For Levon benefit. Another cover debut came next in the form of Ann Peebles’ Feel Like Breaking Up Somebody’s Home which both the Warren Haynes Band and Gov’t Mule have played before. The rest of the set was all about the jams with Dreams followed by Derek and the Dominos’ Why Does Love Have To Be So Sad? and In Memory of Elizabeth Reed. Even the encore was a long jam song – Whipping Post.

    Here’s the setlist from tonight’s show…

    Set One: Done Somebody Wrong, Come and Go Blues, Every Hungry Woman, Dusk Till Dawn, Low Down Dirty Mean, Stand Back, You Don’t Love Me*, Sky Is Crying, Revival

    Set Two: Long Black Veil@, Feel Like Breaking Up Somebody’s Home, Dreams, Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad?, In Memory of Elizabeth Reed > Drums and Bass Solo > In Memory of Elizabeth Reed

    Encore: Whipping Post

    Saturday Night Live is usually notable for its fake commercials, not real ones, yet tonight’s episode featured a super-quick Daft Punk teaser/commercial. All we got to see was a brief look at the logo and helmet insignia the French EDM masters used to announce their 3-album deal with Columbia Records.

    Daft Punk’s fourth album is expected this spring. You can watch the commercial here…

    Later, a second Daft Punk ad aired during the same Saturday Night Live episode.

    Neil Young and Crazy Horse played their first show of the year last night, when they opened a brief Australian/New Zealand tour at Perth Arena in Perth, Australia. While they mostly stuck to the same script as 2012′s Alchemy tour dates, there were a few surprises for the Aussie crowd.

    [Photo via @pertharena]

    For their fifth song of the 13-song main set, Neil and his longtime band debuted a new original called Hole In The Sky. According to our friends at Thrasher’s Wheat, the song references the ozone layer. At last year’s shows Young broke up his main set with an acoustic performance of The Needle and the Damage Done. Yesterday he substituted his classic song Heart of Gold which made its Alchemy Tour debut. Also of note, Neil and the Horse added a bit of a noise jam to the end of Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black). The group vamps on a new segment in which they sing “Don’t Say It’s Over” again and again. Check it out… (starts at 5:30 mark)

    Neil Young and Crazy Horse – Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black)

    Here’s a look at the complete setlist from last night…

    1. Love And Only Love
    2. Powderfinger
    3. Born In Ontario
    4. Walk Like A Giant
    5. Hole In The Sky*
    6. Heart Of Gold
    7. Twisted Road

    There are very few of us who didn’t grow up on Top 40 music. While many of us have moved on to become fans of music that isn’t played on the radio, we still feel a nostalgic connection to the tunes we grew up on. This past Friday night a band called Omaha Diner made their debut at The Cutting Room in New York City. The group features guitarist Charlie Hunter, saxophonist Skerik, Steven Bernstein on trumpet and Bobby Previte on drums. For this project the four talented and highly-regarded musicians offer their own spin on songs that at one time hit #1 on the Billboard charts.

    At Friday’s show, Omaha Diner delivered interpretations of such hit songs as Beyonce’s Single Ladies, Hall and Oates’ I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do), Love Train by The O’Jays and Adele’s Rolling In The Deep. Another tune they covered was Jump by Van Halen and you’ve never heard a take quite like this. Thanks to taper Eric McRoberts we can check out Omaha Diner’s version of Jump…

    Omaha Diner – Jump

    Omaha Diner will return to the stage at The Maison in New Orleans on April 28.

    While there is certainly no shortage of multi-day music festivals each summer, anyone that has made the trip to the scenic coastal town of Newport, Rhode Island for the annual Newport Folk Festival can attest to the fact that it may very well be one of the best festivals out there.

    What makes the granddaddy of all music fests feel so special year after year is the reverence not just from the attendees, but from the artists as well, who relish in its laid back and familial vibe. To celebrate that spirit, fest organizers have uploaded this short documentary about last summer’s edition, featuring appearance from the like of Jim James, Jackson Browne, Dawes, Rodriguez and more.

    Newport Folk Festival 2012

    The 2013 edition of the Newport Folk Festival, which has expanded to three days, will take place from July 26 – 28, with tickets currently only remaining for Friday’s festivities.

    It’s been a long time since I’ve done a moe.jams edition of Stormy Mondays, but a recent gig inspired me to offer up some double guitar rock. One of moe.’s great talents is the ability to turn out what are essentially a classic album’s worth of music within a suite: 30-45 minute jams that act as complete pieces. There’s just something in the group’s pacing that allows for these perfectly digestible nuggets to shine time and again, and on a good night, they’ll play three or four such episodes. A recent case comes from the end of the first set on the second night of early February’s two night stand in NYC. (Special thanks to New York based taper Scott Bernstein, whose recording is featured here.)

    [Photo by Alexandra Valenti]

    The suite starts with a hot Smoke that opens up more than usual at the end for a driving jam and slowly morphs into the classic pairing of Not Coming Down > Wormwood, with the instrumental tune wandering and drifting and moving into some very cool spaces before landing in a bombastic Moth to close. A tight, engaging chunk of moe. for your Monday, so as always, enjoy!

    To follow up on our post from Saturday, Phish has officially announced that they will release their second studio album, Lawn Boy, on vinyl for Record Store Day. 7,500 individually numbered copies of Lawn Boy will be available at select independent record stores on April 20th.

     Today’s announcement explains how the new vinyl release was created…

    This new vinyl release was created from the original 1/4″ stereo master reels with lacquers cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering. Each LP is pressed onto 180g audiophile grade vinyl and includes a free MP3 download of the entire album (transferred from the new vinyl master). Deluxe packaging includes an 8-page photo booklet, plenty of painted-Fishman outtakes, and an etched D-side.

    The official announcement is worth reading as it goes into detail on Lawn Boy’s history…

    On Record Store Day 2013, Phish will release Lawn Boy, the band’s second full-length studio album, as a Limited Edition Deluxe 2-LP vinyl set, available exclusively at participating independently owned record stores across the country. Lawn Boy marks the band’s third release in conjunction with Record Store Day (joining Two Soundchecks and Junta) and the first time Lawn Boy has been available on vinyl in well over a decade.

    This LE Deluxe 2-LP vinyl set is limited to 7,500 individually numbered copies. Lawn Boy was recorded and mixed at Archer Studios in Winooski, VT in 1989 and 1990 on 16-track 2″ tape and was mixed to 1/4″ stereo reels. The band won the initial studio time with a first-place Rock Rumble performance on April 21, 1989 at a downtown Burlington, VT club called The Front. The Lawn Boy sessions that followed consisted of mostly live takes with a few effects and overdubs. Engineer Dan Archer acquired a baby grand piano specifically for the recording, Fish played his drums squeezed into a vocal isolation booth and the band utilized local musicians including members of what would soon be called the Giant Country Horns. Like Junta before it, Phish self-produced Lawn Boy on a hands-on level, surrounding the console for group fades without aid of automation.

    Lawn Boy was initially self-distributed on cassette tape in 1990 and officially released on September 21, 1990 on Absolute A-Go-Go and Rough Trade Records on cassette, single-LP vinyl and CD (with CD bonus track Fee). The album was later re-mastered by Bob Ludwig and re-released on CD and cassette by Elektra Records June 30, 1992 and was eventually certified Gold.

    This new vinyl release was created from the original 1/4″ stereo master reels with lacquers cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering. Each LP is pressed onto 180g audiophile grade vinyl and includes a free MP3 download of the entire album (transferred from the new vinyl master). Deluxe packaging includes an 8-page photo booklet, plenty of painted-Fishman outtakes, and an etched D-side.

    This LE Deluxe 2-LP vinyl set was created exclusively for Record Store Day. Lawn Boy will be available in stores only beginning Saturday, April 20th. For a complete list of participating record stores, please click here.

    As much as we enjoy watching Zooey Deschanel playing the adorkable Jessica Day on the FOX sitcom the New Girl, we’re much bigger fans of She & Him, her musical partnership with singer-songwriter M. Ward. On May 7 the indie-pop duo will release their latest studio album, Volume 3, via Merge Records. As with their past releases the record was produced by Ward, with the majority of the 14-track effort penned by Deschanel, which also includes three covers and a slew of guest appearances from the likes of Joey Spampinato (NRBQ), Mike Watt, Tilly and the Wall, Pierre de Reeder (Rilo Kiley) and Tom Hagerman (Devotchka).

    Yesterday She & Him released the album’s lead single Never Wanted Your Love, which features everything we’ve come to love from their brand of vintage pop. Let’s take a listen…
