FRIDAY AFTERNOON IN THE UNIVERSE (FAITU#36)
The Shack Project celebrates MMW @25 years!
These March shows that start off 2007 are HOT HOT HOT!!! I love them all and have listened to them often — especially the loose and improvisation heavy first sets from these gigs. I do have to say that I’m just not a huge fan of Oliver sitting in … it’s fine, but I don’t find he *lifts* the band up in their performance, if you know what I mean (and these days I would *MUCH* rather find Chris hanging more with his brothers from other mothers than his bio-bro, but I digress) … nonetheless, some cool moments from him in that 2nd set and great playing from the band … still have the MSMW tunes floating around since at this point they’d recently played the Nov > Dec tour with Sco …
And you know what would be REALLY cool? If the 3/8 gig in Atlanta surfaced:
We had an incomplete copy of Nashville (3/4) pop up a couple of years ago, so there’s always hope … but for now …
enjoy the grooves,
