I'm sure there are plenty of NYC area Deadheads who would be interested in this FREE Show this Saturday & Sunday night at The Winter Garden in The World Financial Center. If it wasn't Ski Season ( Winter has Finally arrived here ! I'd almost given up all hope !) I know I'd be going. MUSIC CONCERT


THE AMERICAN BEAUTY PROJECT


In 1970 the Grateful Dead entered the studio to record two albums, "Workingman’s Dead" and "American Beauty." These albums would go on to become legendary in the annals of music history and serve as early benchmarks in the Dead’s oeuvre. They marked a departure from the band’s original “jam” sound and a profound exploration of folk and bluegrass musical traditions.

In homage to the influence these albums had on the future of music, an exceptional roster of acclaimed musicians comes together to interpret each of the albums’ songs. Among the artists participating are:



Jorma Kaukonen • Toshi Reagon • Ollabelle • The Holmes Brothers
Dar Williams • Dan Zanes • Jay Farrar • Mark Eitzel • Tim O’Reagan
Jen Chapin • Jim Lauderdale • Catherine Russell • Larry Campbell
The Klezmatics • Sex Mob • Railroad Earth • Andy Statman
Espers • Kerryn Tolhurst • Tony Trischka, and more.


Workingman’s Dead
Saturday, January 20, 8pm
Winter Garden

Despite being released in June 1970, this record sounds more like a relic from America’s musical past. Demonstrating the symbiotic relationship between Jerry Garcia and lyricist Robert Hunter, "Workingman’s" recounts tales of miners, outlaws, and ladies of the night, and proved that the band could come down from the cosmos and reclaim terra firma.

American Beauty
Sunday, January 21, 8pm
Winter Garden

The second of the Dead’s 1970 albums, "American Beauty" continued in the path that "Workingman’s" had started, though it went one step further and was recorded without any of Garcia’s trademark solos and was primarily acoustic. What one hears in this album are tales of maturation, songs that reflected the band’s experiences with mortality.

Media sponsorship is provided by WFUV Radio and WBJB 90.5 “The Night.”

Workingman's Dead Saturday, January 20 at 8:00 p.m. &
American Beauty Sunday, January 21 at 8:00 p.m.

Free in the World Financial Center Winter Garden

NEW YORK – Two of the Grateful Dead's greatest albums, American Beauty and Workingman's Dead, both recorded in 1970, will each be honored with its own evening when Arts>World Financial Center presents The American Beauty Project free in the World Financial Center Winter Garden, 220 Vesey Street.

Workingman's Dead, which was recorded in March 1970, will be honored Saturday, January 20 at 8:00 p.m. by a distinctive roster of singer-songwriters, bands and instrumentalists when each performs one of the tracks on the classic album.

The next night, Sunday, January 21 at 8:00 p.m., another group of singers and musicians will perform cuts from American Beauty, which was recorded in August and September 1970.

Performing their own arrangements of the Workingman's Dead and American Beauty songs are Jorma Kaukonen (Hot Tuna, Jefferson Airplane), Jay Farrar (Son Volt, Uncle Tupelo, Gob Iron), Ollabelle, Toshi Reagon, The Holmes Brothers, Sex Mob, Espers, Jen Chapin, Dar Williams, The Klezmatics, Tim O'Reagan (The Jayhawks), Mark Eitzel (American Music Club), Larry Campbell (Bob Dylan, Phil Lesh & Friends), Teresa Williams, Rob Barraco, Dan Zanes, Railroad Earth, Catherine Russell, Jim Lauderdale, John Leventhal, Brandon Ross, Andy Statman, Tony Trischka and more names to be announced in the weeks ahead.

Putting together The American Beauty Project to celebrate 35th anniversary of these two landmark Grateful Dead albums is Artistic Director and Producer David Spelman, who was responsible for similar tributes to Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen. At last year's Nebraska Project honoring Springsteen, The Boss himself spent the evening standing unnoticed with the crowd before jumping on stage for the finale.

"Both Workingman's Dead and American Beauty were ranked on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time, 258 and 262, respectively," said Mr. Spelman. "Each was extremely innovative at the time for their fusion of bluegrass, rock, folk and country music."

Workingman's Dead, the band's fourth studio album, was recorded in March 1970, and was voted by readers of Rolling Stone as the best album of 1970, in front of Crosby, Stills and Nash's Déjà Vu and Van Morrison's Moondance.

American Beauty was recorded between August and September of 1970 and was released in November of the same year. It included instant radio favorites such as "Truckin'," "Sugar Magnolia" and "Friend of the Devil."

"The acoustic sound and folk/country tunes of Workingman's Dead would come as quite a shock to many fans, and to the critics as a harbinger of some sort of conscious movement (along with The Band, Dylan and the Byrds) toward country," wrote Grateful Dead biographer Dennis McNally in his program notes for the event. Mr. McNally went on to add that "as usual with the Grateful Dead, the album's origins were serendipitous and synchronistic, involving no plan or program. Instead, their swerve to include country songs in their work began quite accidentally when their lyricist Robert Hunter moved in with the Garcia family in January 1969... In March 1970, they went into the studio to record Workingman's Dead. Hugely in debt to their record company, they were forced to be simple and economize, thinking consciously of Buck Owens' Bakersfield sound. The simplicity served the music perfectly, and the result was a classic, although not the departure many thought it was. They'd enlarged their vision, not changed it."

The set list for The American Beauty Project is as follows:

Workingman's Dead - Saturday, January 20 at 8:00 p.m.:

Uncle John's Band - Ollabelle with Larry Campbell

HOST:
John Schaefer is the host of WNYC's innovative music talk show "Soundcheck," which features live performances and interviews with a variety of guests. Since 1982, Schaefer has also hosted and produced the popular new music radio program "New Sounds," hailed as "The #1 radio show for the Global Village" by Billboard magazine. He has been heard regularly on the BBC, the ABC (Australia), Taipei Public Radio, and Radio New Zealand. Schaefer's writings include "New Sounds: A Listener's Guide to New Music" (Harper & Row, NY, 1987; Virgin Books, London, 1990); a biography of composer La Monte Young (in Sound and Light, Bucknell University Press, 1996); and "Songlines: The Voice in World Music" (Cambridge Companion to Singing, Cambridge University Press, UK, 2000). In May 2006, New York Magazine cited Schaefer as one of "the people whose ideas, power, and sheer will are changing New York" in its Influentials issue. First Dead show attended: He's pretty sure it was in 1977... or 1978... possibly at New York's Palladium... he just can't remember all the details.

Toshi Reagon is an excellent blues/rock performer and I was thrilled to see her in the American Beauty line up. If you haven't heard her, she is someone to check out. She is an excellent singer, song writer and acoustic guitarist and if you really want to hear a refreshing, soulful female voice, her music is totally worth picking up or catching her in concert. She is able to recreate her sound in the live hall too. Toshi's mom is Bernice Johnson Reagon who is a founding member of Sweet Honey in the Rock an internationally known all female a capella group. Toshi's band, Big Lovely, has another great, rather unknown, female singer guitarist, Judith Casselberry, who can play a nice lead guitar. The other band members are great too, though she has a few new members I haven't heard live yet. Toshi's first cd, Justice, is a musical and lyrical gem and up there on my list of the top 100 cds of all time.
