Review: JJ Grey & Mofro @ The Variety

Atlanta’s Matt and Kelly Andrews, of Musical Stew Daily fame, eat, drink and breathe live music. Please welcome them to the Hidden Track posse to represent the ATL with reviews and news from the Big Peach.

In Atlanta’s Little 5 Points, the heart and soul of live music is located squarely at The Variety Playhouse. Showcasing an eclectic mix of musical talent nightly, The Variety has hosted an impressive roster of talents through the years. Phish, Widespread Panic, Lee “Scratch” Perry and others have graced the stage of The Variety in the past. On Saturday the 11th, they hosted yet another favorite of mine, Jacksonville, Florida’s JJ Grey & Mofro.

Sweet tea, blackberry cobbler, ox-tail soup, hominy grits, mosquitoes, fried catfish and hush puppies are all synonymous with Jacksonville’s culinary life and culture, the birthplace and home of Mofro. Molasses sweet and thick, Otis Redding inspired “front porch soul.” The music is gritty and tough while remaining sweet and inspired. Music with a cause, to preserve the land and life that JJ Grey so obviously holds sacred. An urgent message delivered with a steady groove and southern manners. The simplicity of yesteryear is sadly fading before his eyes as he implores us to see Florida through those same eyes– likening it to “watching someone you love die slow.”

Cover Wars: Ophelia Edition

U-Melt ran away with last week’s edition when we looked at eight covers of The Boy In The Bubble. U-Melt proves that clever setlist construction goes a long way, as the performance that was selected was in the middle of MMW’s Bubblehouse (Boy in the Bubblehouse?). Congrats to U-Melt on their first CW trophy, well it’s an imaginary trophy, put it on the mantle.

S.M.V. (Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller, and Victor Wooten): Thunder

Electric Jazz and Bass fans already know what S.M.V. stands for but for those new to the thick strings it is a super-group combing Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller, and Victor Wooten, for their first release Thunder.  “Super Group” is a term that gets thrown around a bit loosely, but no one can argue with this trio’s credentials.
