Last Week’s Sauce: August 23rd – 29th

Sometimes less is more. Effort that is. This week, you’re only getting tracks from three different bands, but I’m giving you fat sections of music from all three entries. Those of you who download the weekly podcast (and yelled at me last week for not including a download link) will be settling in for an hour’s worth of music from a Jazz Duo that somehow captured the hearts of jamband fans years ago, a trancefusion band in the midst of an impressive summer tour playing large stages and the brownest band on the scene.

After not delivering last week, the Last Week’s Sauce Podcast is back, click here to download.

Benevento Russo Duo – Blues For Allah, Best Reason To Buy The Sun
Date & Venue: 2010-08-27 Highline Ballroom – New York, NY
Taper & Show Download: nyctaper

Joe Russo stated in an interview with JamBase in February of last year that, “I don’t care who comes to see our band; if you like our music, that’s great. But the first time someone yelled a Phish song at us when we were playing as The Duo, I got really fucking pissed. I was like, ‘That’s it, all we are now is this [band] that has to do with Phish.” This problem I’m sure has continued to grow as since that interview was published, he is now also touring with Phil Lesh and Bob Weir. It seems as though he may have gotten over it though, as The Duo last week performed the long GD composition Blues For Allah.

No future tourdates for the Benevento Russo Duo are currently on the books, but Marco Benevento is playing with Garage A Trois alongside Skerik, Mike Dillon and Stanton Moore; they play tomorrow at Doug Fir in Portland, OR. Joe Russo resumes his drumming duties with Furthur on September 16th in Eugene, OR.

New Year’s Eve Report: Furthur

With barely a dozen shows under their belt and a larger scale cross-country tour on the immediate horizon, longtime Grateful Dead bandmates Bob Weir and Phil Lesh brought their latest project – Furthur – to the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium for a hometown three-set throw down.

Weir and Lesh, who are no strangers to the spectacle of a New Year’s performance, augmented the band with a pair of back-up singers and included covers of Pink Floyd’s Time and J.J. Cale’s After Midnight among their selection of familiar big jam staples from the Dead catalog, as well as their customary countdown stunt, check it out…

The Duo: Higher Ground, South Burlington, VT – 11/15/07

The Duo should not be judged by their album outputs, they are first and foremost a live act. Their performance at Higher Ground, although not one of their “epic” shows, was surely another whirlwind of unclassifiable rock and jazz that proved they are one of today’s elite instrumental rock units going.
