Last night's couch tour from the Capital Theater was quite unusual.Phil's guitarists were John Kadelick (who is no longer just trying to channel Jerry but did an excellent job relying on his own tone & style) & Stanley Jordan.

An evening of Dead songs mixed with what looks strange on the setlist-Stairway to Heaven,Elanor Rigby,Sounds of Silence,After Midnight...Unusual & incredible because Stanley Jordan put on a virtuoso performance that was truly brilliant & mind bending.What a genius this guy is....the most fun was seeing how great & knowledgeable Phil is about Jazz scales(no surprise given his jazz & classical background)& how beautiful their musical interplay was...

Night 2 tonight on nugs tv for $19.99-worth every penny-great sound & great picture last night.

Last night was particularly special...we didn't,to be honest,expect much given the low energy shows Phil has had over the past 2 years,but we're deadheads who have a particular love for Phil so we stick in with the couch tour but enough about the recent past...we tuned in last night expecting a less then at his best Phil,a Kadelick doing his Furthur,Pretend Jerry act,and Jordan,like when we saw him last with Phil at the Capital Theater,in his own world and not fully hitting the note with this style of music.

Last night was different.The band was very tight.Kadelick was spot on and quite good at being himself.He's a more than capable lead player.Phil was thundering-first time in awhile.His jazz chops and band leading skills are superior.Jordan-what can I say about a guy who is truly a unique guitar player.Last night he fit right in,smiling and having a great time.Phil opened up a lot of space for him to do his thing and it was truly magnificent.The Sounds of Silence>Elanore Rigby was sublime...did I say brilliant?

Happy 77th Birthday Phil-wishing you much health and happiness and many more years of great music.

Dad, what interests me is that Jordan has done some of those tunes as a solo artist. I'd be curious to hear what he does with them in a band context.

Set 1 just ended.A more traditional Dead set.I'd gotta guess 95% of the leads were Kadelick.The band was very tight albeit Joan's harmonies were weak frustrating Phil.No extended jams in this set...eager to see if the 2nd is jam oriented.

Jim-as you can tell I can't answer your question until he plays some leads. LOL.

I saw Stanley Jordan live years ago, mid 1980s. He was a solo act, and his claim to fame was taking the Van Halen type tactic above and beyond. This was years before I had heard of Tommy Emmanuel and guys like that.

Anyway, Stanley was on stage alone, and because could two-handed tap, playing the guitar like a pianist, he was playing "Eleanor Rigby" as though four different people were playing it. It was not that there was a traditional burning lead guitar solo, it was that one guy was covering all of these different musical parts at once.

So I wonder what this guy would do if indeed a band was covering more of those parts for him, so that he could do one thing, or if that is what he would do at all.

I'm rambling! Sorry!

He played a wide variety of guitar leads in the song,all in different styles/voices.The band supported him very well and Phil and Jordan played particularly well together.

Tonight a solid but unspectacular show so far.Kadelick is doing a very fine job...Jordan played a lullaby at one point....Somewhere Over the Rainbow...a very very boring interlude...Jordan is now excelling on Death Don't Have No Mercy-a compelling lead...

Edit-show really picking up...Jordan getting into it....

I thought the show started slowly. First set was brief and modestly uninspiring. Stanley Jordan never seemed to showcase his skills in Set 1. Second set was top notch. As mentioned Stanley was awesome on Over the Rainbow, but it was a tad too long. Have seen Jeff Beck do it better IMO.

Really loved Gimme Shelter >> Help on the Way >> Slipknot >> Franklin's Tower to end the set ........

Here's the link to buy the webcast tonight. HD $19.99 SD $14.99

http://nugs.tv/?utm_source=nugs.net&utm_medium=livedownloads

I really enjoyed the show last night. Althea a highlight (for me) in the first set. Guitars and Phil's bass playing very nice as were Joan Osborne's vocals.

(And you get 48 hours VOD with purchase of show. I listened to last night's show again today.)

They started closer to 8:30 pm last night, although 8 pm was stated start time.

I'm going to check this out on my own, but wondering if these shows remain archived and available to view. I hope so. I sort of stopped going to Phil shows. Just not quite wiling to pay $125 and drive to PortChester for increasingly frustrating meandering shows.. but the thing is, every once in a while, you get a totally spectacular performance.

i tend to go to PortChester or more often, i stream them live.Not sure if the shows are archived-try checking out Nugs TV.Generally,these shows appear on youtube(great quality) within days or weeks.

The last 2 years have not brought Phil's best shows but Night 3 of this is quite interesting.I love watching Phil-it's fun seeing the bass player direct musical traffic.It's super cool to hear how Phil creates space for his fellow musicians while still providing color & thunder.He could also be impatient-see the Warren/Santana show-he clearly seemed frustrated, at times, with Santana as Carlos struggled to find a groove-warren did his best to help! And,Phil's bass playing is most always compelling.
