The Trey Anastasio Band: TAB @ The Tab

Read "TAB @ The Tab" reviewed by Doug Collette

TAB at the Tab is a well-recorded composite from a February 2010 performance at The Tabernacle in Atlanta. The eye-catchingly designed single CD captures Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio with a tight, efficient combo, performing economical arrangements of a wide array of material from his solo repertoire, as well as the Phish catalog.. Returning to the road in 2008, Anastasio reconvened what's now called “Classic TAB," in a foursome of longtime collaborators. Drummer Russ Lawton, bassist Tony Markellis and ...

Phish: Live Phish Downloads: Madison Square Garden 12/30/1997

Read "Live Phish Downloads: Madison Square Garden 12/30/1997" reviewed by Doug Collette

Releasing the three-CD Live Phish Downloads: Madison Square Garden 12/30/1997 in the wake of the mammoth At the Roxy (Jemp, 2008) makes a certain amount of sense. It is neither a groundbreaking performance nor a significant event within the band's oeuvre, such as its 1996 The Clifford Ball festival. The video counterpart of Madison Square Garden 1997, shot from a single camera's sound-board vantage point in the historic venue, available simultaneously with the CDs and download, substantiate the lighthearted atmosphere ...

Read "Original Boardwalk Style: Live in Atlantic City" reviewed by Doug Collette

Guitarist Trey Anastasio's live album, Original Boardwalk Style, progresses just the way a live performance should. Its early tracks demonstrate the varied assets of The Undectet and, as the subsequent cuts unfold, the sequencing serves to exhibit the subtleties of the material as well as the musicianship.

Recorded at the New Year's 2006-7 run at the House of Blues in Atlantic City, the album displays a distinct thread of continuity with Anastasio's previous solo efforts, most obvious here in the ...

Trey Anastasio: Saying More With Less

Read "Trey Anastasio: Saying More With Less" reviewed by Doug Collette

The cover graphic of guitarist/singer Trey Anastasio's new album depicts a train negotiating a precarious turn on a mountain precipice with ever-so-deft precision. It's an apt metaphor for Anastasio's post-Phish career and his vocation in general.

The Horseshoe Curve betrays none of the overt marketplace compromise represented by Anastasio's Shine (Columbia, 2005). And while it is the second release on the independently distributed Rubber Jungle label of Anastasio's own devise, it carries no overt signs of a personal ...

Trey Anastasio Tweeter Center Mansfield, MA June 21, 2006

The summer of 2006 is what Trey Anastasio must've been thinking of when he decided to announce the disbandment of Phish a little over two years ago: with his own band, he's embarked on the first of two legs of touring as he opens shows for Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers.

In the midst of this, he performed a one-off with Oysterhead (a trio including ...
