The "curious snake tattoo" is actually the Auryn from The Neverending Story. There is one on each shoulder.
Nice review...but unless she's changed the lyrics, the last line of "The Story" is, "I was made for you."
Great show, but as I've witnessed at several Jackson Browne concerts, add alcohol and some vocal contingent of the audience seem to get infatuated with their own loud and rude cleverness. As always, Browne handled it with affable professionalism.
It was a fantastic concert! From his moodiness, I think we can expect a new disc with the heart-wrenching tunes he is so good at. (I hope he does one!)
Sarah Watkins was phenomenol. I was disappointed there were none of her CD's on sale, but I will be ordering something of hers immediately. Charming, fantastic voice, and fiddling at the same time. Impressive.
See, I should have gone to *this* show.
Very well said. "A Journeyman" - I like that. We were there that night among the group that were twenty-something a couple of decades ago. Seeing Taj Mahal was a highlight of my year so far. The first time I heard Taj Mahal was on my mom's eight-track tape player 25-30 years ago while cruising in the green van that was our shuttle during my 'tween' years. Since then his music has been intermittently playing in the background of my life. The crowd at the Pour House you mentioned - of very mixed ages - was interesting. I was thinking those youngsters couldn't possibley appreciate the depths of Taj's 'soul', but, as you reminded me - the less than god-like man with God-gifted talent, was so wise to say we were all there together on the same level - all feeling the music equally. A special night indeed, in the presence of an Olympian - no, but I would say a super-star musician for sure. And, because his role is a 'journeyman', we were able to see him, standing 4 feet in front of him. ... 'Legendary'is definitely a fitting desription of Taj Mahal. I don't know all the musicians he's influenced, but one I'm sure of is Keb Mo, I would venture to guess there are dozens of others. Taj's voice sounded terrific and he was one with the instrument in his hands. I hope he makes music for another twenty years!
I saw this show Friday night, and absotively LOVED Johny Corndawg. It was my first time to the House and I will def return soon. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
Welcome to my neighborhood. Tin Roof is formerly the BAIT SHACK & our atmosphere remains SALOONISH. Freddie Mercury could have played here and get little attention as City Paper is the only print venue to half try and support the arts... here in cyberland more people can do what ALEXeatsKittens has done, fill in the gaps & correct the errors of a tiny slate of contributors... my neighbors include a new bicycle shop & Home Team BBQ in the same 200 meter drive by another 50 & you get TACO SPOT & across the street just 90 yards more is GROUND ZERO for TAMPON TERRORISM where religious fanatics are allowed to camp out 24/7 in front of the abortion clinic WITH A PERMIT something OCCUPY IS NOT allowed to do with or without a permit... it is not boring here folks... we can dance, eat oriental, get giant 5 dollar PIZZA PIZZA just another 200 YARDS west along Ashley River Road... yes we have many Magnolia trees & Azaelas WE CAN DO WITHOUT THE NAZI PIMP POPE followers... WHERE AGAIN are the chivalrous men to protect our women at their clinic?
if you have not had a chance to be there then you need to check this scene out-its what!s call keep on keeping on..i know that you that i---am a cjo jazz buff..
I agree---the sound was excellent. I regret not mentioning it specifically. Usually I do, but I guess I was so giddy over John and Lyle that it slipped my mind.
Maybe they were using a crystal microphone. No bass, only high end response. Nothing else has changed. Just the microphone.
Agreed. Great review that captured the night perfectly. And (unlike some live show reviews I've read here) factually accurate. And the sound was, indeed, crystal clear.
Excellent review. Spot on.
Also worth mentioning were the excellent production values. Sound was crystal clear throughout the venue.
This was an amazing concert and a great tribute to Jimi Hendrix. The man was so influential to many of todays great musicians. It was also awesome to see so many great and legendary musicians all together in one night on one stage, and in some cases playing together.
I am also especially glad to hear the praise that Mato Nanji has been getting. I have been a huge fan of Indigenous for many years and can tell everyone that what you saw him do Sunday is only a small sampling of this mans great talent!
Thank you so much for identifying the talent! Now I have a much better idea of whose music to explore more.
Amazing night, all star cast...one of the best shows I have ever seen. Great review of the show!
Glad I read this piece, as it put names with the faces and the performance. Great show all the way around. Sorry for Dweezil Zappa's early amp problem (for him), but it did not ruin the performance by any means. Only other down side was that Chris "Whipper" Layton's bass drum was too amplified...felt like someone hitting me in the chest, with my wife and I up front on Row B (bought our tickets the first day that they were available).
Glad that I finally saw Buddy Guy, Chris Layton (never saw him perform with SRV), Kenny Wayne Shepherd (who is SRV reincarnate) and Robert Randolph, all of whom I had wanted to see and to hear.
Mato Nanji was indeed a star of the evening. Never heard of him before, but he cooked! (Yes, gonna get an Indigenous CD so I can hear more of his blues artistry.)
It was an excellent performance by all. Good vibes indeed.
I was most impressed with Mato Nanji. Nanji had a great guitar tone and accurately emulated Jimi's music.
Long live Hendrix!
Rock on, PLA
