Jazz Is Dead

Jazz is Dead is an instrumental Grateful Dead cover band that interprets classic Dead songs with jazzy influences instrumentally. There have been different line-ups over time with T Lavitz being the only mainstay off all of them.

Three years after the Grateful Dead frontman Jerry Garcia died, the first line-up of Jazz Is Dead released their first album, Blue Light Rain, which is in fact the first lyrical line from the song "Unbroken Chain". This album features "Crazy Fingers", "Scarlet Begonias", "Dark Star", "Red Baron" by Billy Cobham, the Phil Lesh classic "Unbroken Chain", and the Blues for Allah tunes "King Solomon's Marbles" and the epic "Help on The Way / Slipknot! / Franklin's Tower>Spiral Staircase" medley.

So, technology and memory presumably explain the appearance of this recording, part of the ironically named Jazz is Dead label's series, ...

Greg Paul: We Can Share These Commonalities

Read "Greg Paul: We Can Share These Commonalities" reviewed by Barbara Ina Frenz

Phil Ranelin & Wendell Harrison: Jazz Is Dead 16

Read "Jazz Is Dead 16" reviewed by Chris May

There is much to love about Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad's Jazz Is Dead label and an equal amount to hate.
