The date of the next jam is scheduled for Thursday, June 21, 2001 at at Carroll's Instrument Rental on 41st street between 8th & 9th Avenues but very close to 9th., 7pm - 11pm  

Tefillin Ken was the only early guest as he played guitar for the first couple songs as we were getting our act together.  I played a little drums for Come Together and Andy played them for the Fire on the Mountain.  He was good.  The only other guest was some 25 year old sound guy, Chris I believe,  who was working for some unknown musician on the third floor that everyone seemed to know but me.  Anyway he heard us from afar and came in and hung out and listened for a little while.  Seemed to dig us.  He was a pretty major Head who could only catch them at the tail.  He saw 50 shows in 1994, now that's desperate.

Larry has his new EMG prefab pickguard/pickup combo and he was howling notes out for that thing after he arrived a little late.  He had the David Gilmoure setup and we played Another Brick in the Wall Jam in honour of it but he didn't partake.  I thought it had some good moments.  Time will tell with his new pickups as it does with all stuff like that.  Speaking of which, I was playing my old 79 Strat for the first time in a while with an abbreviated effects setup.  It's the first time I didn't have my midi for a while.

Mexicali had a terrible transition and some bad parts but when it worked it was good.  I liked most of the music for the night.  We were in the reverberating first floor studio but it wasn't ear piercing loud, even though I did see Rich put up a music stand in a feeble attempt to ward off the onslaught of Trister's guitar.  Scott ended up on my side as Dave was on Andy's to his chagrin.   Finally the PA was nicely placed behind Tommy B. for easy adjustment although it wasn't sounding good.

I locked my car keys in my car in the lot and missed a few songs while I dealt with that and Johnny can attest I'm quite a dealer.  We looked for Scott to give him a ride home but never found him.  I hope he got home.  We had thunder storms on the way home with some nice lightning.  Chinese food before hand was quite good and Kevin's back didn't make it through the end.

Till next Thursday

Eyes needed glasses, and Birdsong fell out of the nest, but Fire built to a roaring bonfire, and we had many snappy skoppy moments....Brick in the wall was not one of them...add me to the list that did not know the musician upstairs.... Brotman, you need to pick a show....but alas, I will not be there next week

thanks Scotty! Even though the invitations say 1PM, remember, I want all band members at 11 AM to set up the equipment. I will jerry-rig barricades to keep kids and folks away from our stuff until we play. Everyone is important in this situation...If you are coming from far away, and wish to bring your families with you at the early time, you may. I'll have bagels and cream cheese/butter/coffee/juice/tea for you all. Let's get a good vibe early, gentlemen.

F.Y.I. Joe Gallant As Peter Watrous reported in the New York Times, "The Grateful Dead underground is a busy place. And now that the band has called it quits, after the death of Jerry Garcia in August, the group's countless followers are looking to find the Dead's legacy in places they might not have looked before. Hence three sold out shows [at the Knitting Factory] by Joe Gallant. His project merges musicians from California connected to the Grateful Dead - the pianists Tom Constanten and Bob Bralove and the guitarists David Gans and Henry Kaiser - with musicians from New York." Gallant has transformed the Dead's music into wild arrangements for a twenty four piece band, and over his three shows at Knitting Factory, which raised more than $5,000 for the Rex Foundation, he reinterpreted the Blues For Allah album, highlighting the seminal work's jazz improvisation, developing an interesting, and widely heralded, interpretation of the music of the Dead. Richard Gehr wrote in the Village Voice, "More sophisticated and ambitious than Gil Evans's Hendrix rearrangements, Gallant's take on Garcia and company embodied a sympathetic fan's notes. Gallant, his Illuminati big band, and guests made the music rumble and sweat, shimmer, and expand to-nearly double its CD 45 minutes."

For this show, Joe and his twenty member plus ensemble will be performing two sets of Grateful Dead music. The band is rehearsing the Terrapin Station album which they are planning to perform this night as well as a set of Grateful Dead classics. sg

good info there Scotty. I e-mailed Gans for some poop. I like the part where the article says that his take is from a sympathetic fan's point of view. Unlike- Jazz is Dead. Where Billy the Bum Cobham says that the boys were limited, they only played what they knew, and that the vehicle was created to lift $$ from the wallets of unrequited deadheads that need an outlet.

Dave Gans confirmed that he played with Gallant once upon a time, but that it did not have a happy ending. He says he is over it. Scotty, just seems to be you and me holding up this week's discussion. I hope people are not surprised when I do not show up next week.

got to admit - that made me laugh out loud. Thank goodness that there was no coffee in my mouth.

On the other hand, that means that you have identified that song with me, and you not wanting to play it when I am around signals that somehow you deliberately are trying to provoke me...and that is NOT NICE.

hey, check this out:

In October, a 12-CD Warner Bros./Rhino GD box set will be released. According to the L.A. Times, "The first two discs will be a set titled 'Birth of the Dead,' featuring material recorded before the band signed to Warner Bros., compiled by band publicist and historian Dennis McNally. Then each of the Warner Bros. albums will be presented on its own disc, with a running time of about 40 minutes each, supplemented by about the same amount of bonus tracks. 'Each CD is filled to the maximum time of 79-minutes-plus,' [Rhino's James] Austin says. 'The bonus tracks will be a combination of unreleased studio tracks plus live recordings from that era.'"

Does any know when we play next week. Is it supposed to be Tuesday the 6/26/01. I have to RSVP to an event on that day and I need to know about Deadstein. That is my birthday show eventhough I will not call for an acoustic jam, nor will I call for an Unbroken Chain so we have a few weeks to learn it, if we must. I will never make that acoustic error again. Last year was such a disaster, I don't need to get any negative feeling about Deadstein brewing.

There is some very exciting news on the horizon for us. Larry B. has found us a permanent home. An empty office at the corner of Houston and Broadway, a top the Pottery Barn. It'as a place to move our equipment into and to have a free place to jam until at least the end of the year. We need to jump on it and take advantage of this offer right away. Probably moving in next Tuesday if we can get our act together. There are so many benefits to this opportunity that we need to get our act together and jump on it right away and make it happen. It's exciting and we can talk about it tonight.

Looking forward to it.

Nevertheless

Don't fear this Andy, this place seems so perfect for us. It's not just an empty office building, but has so many other positive attributes it's impressive. 1. will be a full time sound man to mix us and therefore taping will be soundboards. Deadstein will be broadcast live over the Internet so all our friends could listen to as we play. I have a feeling this place is going to have lots of guests and partying people who will be there to encourage us to play our very best. The room won't nearly be as echo ridden. On the bad side for you Andy, we need the PA system back for it.
