If God was one of us here at Mountain Jam, he probably would’ve staved off the torrential rain that started falling just after this set by supergroup Trigger Hippy, which features Joan Osborne, Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman, session guitarist Tom Bukovac, singer/songwriter and Black Crowes guitarist Jackie Greene and bassist Nick Govrik. The band’s sound is about what you’d expect from this combination of players — Crowes-style bluesy rock that replaces the tenor twang of Chris Robinson with Osborne, packed around some dense riffage. Along with some of the band’s originals, they played some of the day’s more interesting covers (that is to say, not just extremely popular 70s rock hits). In this case, we got Aretha Franklin and Albert Collins tunes, both of which suggest the influences that led to this band. With each artist having a complimentary background and style, this supergroup may not quite be more than the sum of its parts, but the sum of these parts was more than enough to make Trigger Hippy a worthwhile addition to this year’s Mountain Jam lineup.

I recorded this set from an optimal spot next to the soundboard cage with MBHO microphones. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
