Trigger Hippy: June 5, 2015 Mountain Jam (Hunter, NY) – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

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!

Luther Dickinson & The Wandering: May 14, 2012 Joe’s Pub – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

North Mississippi Allstars guitarist/vocalist Luther Dickinson has made a life mission of keeping Delta blues alive while continuing to expand the genre through his own new efforts. His latest project, The Wandering, finds him teaming up with four exceptional female musicians – Amy LaVere, Shannon McNally, Valerie June, and Sharde Thomas – to honor the richness and diversity of the blues with a new record that combines new tracks and well-loved standards.  This show at the grown ups’ music paradise Joe’s Pub was a perfect platform to showcase the members’ individual and collective talents. Dickinson, as ringleader of the proceedings, gave a solo set before the band went on, which included several favorites from the NMAS catalog like RL Burnside’s “Po’ Black Maddie”.  When The Wandering took the stage, the dynamic shifted, with the four women sharing and trading the spotlight as Dickinson provided the strings. The quintet’s devotion to and love for their material is obvious; aside from the luxe surroundings and high-end sound system, you could have been in a balmy Delta club a hundred years ago. The band gave an inspired and different take on Leadbelly’s “In the Pines” (most recently popularized by Nirvana), the old standard “Glory, Glory”, and a somewhat more recent rock classic, The Byrds’ “Hey Mr. Spaceman”, among others. While each of the performers shined, one of our newest favorites, Amy LaVere, fresh off of a performance with Rich Robinson of the Black Crowes at Bowery Ballroom, particularly shined on the vocals and upright bass. Although the just-over-an-hour set was too short by half in my opinion, it established The Wandering as a formidable new entry in the modern blues arena.

Johnny Fried Chicken Boy and I faced some challenges setting up for this show, but we ended up with our mics situated in an ideal location in the center of the venue. This recording is from my Schoeps MK5 cardiods, and boasts a full, rich sound that reflects the venue’s excellent acoustics. Enjoy!
