Jam – 2011-09-19 – Carroll’s

This was a nice week of Deadstein where we were able to play once again with Andy Trister.  We are pretty comfortable these days with our 5-man arrangement with e on lead and Alan playing rhythm, so Trister playing with us sends us back to days of lore, when I had Bob on my mind.  This is a challenge for us as I traditionally hand off all the Jerry part to Andy when he is there leaving Alan and I to fend for the rhythm spectrum.  I think there is enough spectrum there for the two of us to coexist without stepping on each other’s signals and I think we achieve that this week.

Playing Bob is once again a very comfortable thing for me to do compared to  having the responsibility to play Jerry leads, so I found myself in a good zone during this jam, which I am sure helped contribute toward the goodness of the jam.

You know it is a good jam and a fun one when Andy finishes playing theBrokedownPalaceto end the night and says, “Damn that was the best Brokedown you guys have played and this is too much fun to leave.”  As such, he ended up playing an addition 3 or 4 songs and then he parted ways with us.  It just goes to show how when you try and make good music, the music is good.  It’s self fulfilling in so many respects especially verbally.  As a matter of fact, that may be the only respect, but I digress.

It was an especially rewarding and satisfactory evening because from the beginning it did feel as if it was to be such.  We were bickering at the beginning about when or when not to invite guests, playing for a keyboard last week that we did have to elevate to the of having to pay for it and other issues.  They excellent music and attitude during the playing itself, made all that other nonsense trivial compared to the reason we get together anyway, so G-d bless us all and pray for more ying than yoink.

    Lots of versions of songs we play are played for the first time at this show. A great memory. Get a load of the Tomorrow is Such a Long Time with Jerry on peddle-steal. I think he is perfect with each and every note!
