The Grateful Dead Movie
Fathom Events
2017

2017's Grateful Dead “Meet-Up at the Movies" was comprised of a number of disparate elements, the amalgamation of which, in a fashion typical of this iconic band, carried a logic all its own. This multi-leveled presentation by Fathom Events may or ...

Phish: St. Louis '93

Read "Phish: St. Louis '93" reviewed by Doug Collette

The pastel color scheme on the front and back covers of Phish St. Louis '93 is quietly evocative of the six CD's of music enclosed in the slim slip case, but no more or less than the deeper tones on the individual sleeves and the discs themselves that mirror the intensity of the playing at its ...

Jazz Is Phsh: He Never Spoke A Word

Read "Jazz Is Phsh: He Never Spoke A Word" reviewed by Doug Collette

Phish prefer not to be compared to the Grateful Dead in any respect, which is understandable up to a point, yet it's fair to say each band's respective legacy has its own momentum including twists and turns of evolution that inevitably result in parallels and intersections illuminating the process(es).

So it is that Jazz ...

Foundation of Funk
Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom
Denver

Foundation: the base upon which something is built. From houses to skyscrapers, foundations are essential. They must be solid, strong and most of all, immovable. A funk foundation? That, too, must be solid and strong. But immovable? No, quite the ...

Holly Bowling: Better Left Unsung

Read "Better Left Unsung" reviewed by Doug Collette

As wry as is the implication of its title, Holly Bowling's double album of Grateful Dead material, Better Left Unsung, is utterly absorbing. These thirteen wholly instrumental, solo piano renditions of material spanning the spectrum of the iconic San Francisco band's songbook illuminate why the songs are so memorable on their own terms as well as ...

Phish: Amsterdam

Read "Phish: Amsterdam" reviewed by Doug Collette

Delving in sequence into this eight CD set of the shows recorded in February and July of 1997, it sounds like the band really takes flight during “Timber" from the initial show. But Phish shows from throughout their history inevitably exhibit a relativity of momentum, the dynamics of which are dependent upon, but not limited by, ...

Year of the Mule - Gov't Mule and the Future Past

Read "Year of the Mule - Gov't Mule and the Future Past" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

What has previously been relegated to Gov't Mule's live downloads have now been released on CD and LP. But first, a little back ground. Gov't Mule adopted a concert practice of Phish, who began (approximately) yearly coverage of a famous “classic" rock album in concert, typically on Halloween. Phish began this practice in 1994 with The ...

Funkify your life
