Before Phil Lesh and Bob Weir welcomed Jim James to the stage at Sound Summit this weekend, James had a solo set of his own. And the set was magnificent.
James ran through originals, My Morning Jacket Songs, covers and of course, Dead songs. Eric Johnson, the multi-instrumentalist, and Fruit Bats lead man who was performing as part of Vetiver earlier in the day, joined James for a number of songs on stage including a cover of the Fruit Bats’ “Wild Honey.”
At the end of the set, Bob Weir came out for a few tunes marking the second time James and Weir shared the stage in as many days. The first song they performed was written by Daniel Lanois but made popular by the Dave Matthews Band—”The Maker.”
Bob also performed the Grateful Dead classic “Brokedown Palace” and “For What It’s Worth.”
