Back in 2010, Herbie Hancock stopped by the Swamp Raga Studios for a house-warming visit to Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi. The three came together for Hancock’s 2010 album, The Imagine Project, for the track “Space Captain” with additional members of TTB, including Oteil Burbridge (bass, vocals), Kofi Burbridge (keys), Mike Mattison (vocals), and Vinnie Colaiuta (drums).The married duo then toured with Hancock to perform this number for his 70th birthday concerts at Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl. The song is now featured in their setlists from time to time.Watch, and feel, the magic from the recording session below:
Last night, Umphrey’s McGee kicked off their latest round of tour dates with a performance at The Augusta Commons in Auguest, GA featuring support from The Marcus King Band. During the second set of Umph’s headlining performance, the Chicago natives welcomed Marcus King for a rendition of Rolling Stones classic “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking.” The young axe-slinger showered the rocking cover with fiery licks. King’s ferocious riffing–along with the already formidable two-guitar attack of Brendan Bayliss and Jake Cinninger–gave the entire song a distinctly southern feel, sparks flying as King and Cinninger traded solos and built the song to a raucous peak. “Give it up for the Marcus King Band,” Bayliss proclaimed after their guest left the stage. “Man, those guys are hot!”The feelings of excitement and gratitude were mutual. In a comment to Live For Live Music, King raved about the experience: “Those cats are some of my favorite players! They’re so passionate and dedicated to their craft. It’s always been inspiring. I had shaky knees walking on the stage, no doubt about it.”The King sit-in was far from the only highlight of the show, which included a memorable first set-closing “Sociable Jimmy” > “Tribute To The Spinal Shaft” > “Speak Up” > “Thin Air” run and and excellent early second set “Bridgeless” that returned to close the set after a well-executed “Resolution.”The band had one more surprise in store for the encore, as they followed “The Triple Wide” with the eponymous refrain from the end of the Beatles classic album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The debut cover was a nod to the iconic LP’s 50th anniversary last week.You can listen to full audio of Umphrey’s McGee’s 6/1/17 Augusta performance below courtesy of taper NSL on archive.orgUmphrey’s McGee continues their current set of dates with a performance at The Music Farm in Columbia, South Carolina tonight.
