Jam – 2009-06-30 – Carroll’s

IMG_3314_edited-1This was the last week in June and we were playing Tuesday which meant we were able to get Jason to play and sing lead.  We got one song in prior to his arrival, Let the Good Times Roll, with just the four of us.  That was good and it lead to another 7-8 solid songs following there after.  We opened the slot with the Mama Tried which was nice and slow which felt good.

I liked the sound of the PA from the singing perspective but it was possessed when it came to the piano.  It had a mid-range umph that wasn’t good, picked up cricket noises from Scott Bayer’s phone and then occasionally would squeal a 10K whistle that was really terrible.  It also seemed as if the PZM, went in and out at times or was hitting the wood or something.  I still like the sound of the condenser to mic the piano rather than the PZM, but I digress.

IMG_3315_edited-1So we only had one guest, Scott Bayer and his harmonica.  He called Carol on the cell phone who really seemed to enjoy the Way You Do the Things You Do and the Beat It On Down the Line.  We did a really tight Tennessee Jed, Cassidy was hot and spacey.  We ended the solidity of the song selection as I decided to do the Weather Report Suite but it was good nevertheless.  We spent some time in the middle of it practicing the “Winter’s Grey and Falling Rain” part for a while before continuing with the rest of the Let it Grow.  This transitioned nicely into a Spoonful which was sultry.

Jason left at about 10:45 leaving us Core-4 for some personal music toward the end of the night.  This included a Box of Rain that Scott sang and we had used no drums.  We did the Sailor Saint to end the night which was pretty good for t his combo.  We started this whole end of the night segment with a good Race is On.  We also did a real comfortable and enjoyable Shady Grove, of all things.

Below is the setlist and MP3 listening links from the night which are available at the following.  We hnak Rich and his recorder gfor this music.



It was a fun night filled with candy and nuts and we can’t wait to do it again, starting now in July.  In the world Billy Mays (Oxi-Clean info-commercial guy) died suddenly and Al Fraken was declared winner in the challenged Minnesota Senatorial race. Enjoy Independence Day, because the way things are going in our county, we are soon going to have to declare November 4, 2008 “Dependence Day.”
