If you enjoyed the Phil and Friends’ “New Minglewood Blues” that I shared yesterday, you’ll definitely want to check this show out.
After performing in the backyard, Phil and Friends brought the show inside the next room to the Grate Room at Terrapin Crossroads. The lineup included all the same characters from the day with the addition of Ross James: Phil Lesh, John Scofield, Chris Robinson, Ross James, Jason Crosby and Tony Leone.
This particular Phil and Friends is especially potent. Scofield absolutely sets the tone with his fierce guitar playing and Robinson’s vocals are unreal. James Ross more traditional sound on guitar is a great compliment to Scofield’s sound. Listen to the sextet rip through 16 tunes including Ray Charles and Bob Dylan covers and a bunch of classic Dead tunes—over 3 hours in total!
