Damn, Tim Greene with Warren. Tim, if you don't know, is an outstanding sax player from NOLA. Plays in Anders Osborne's band among many others. He plays at the level of Derek, just incredible solos that take flight and you never know where they may go. I have wanted to jam with Tim, since I first heard him. Problem is, every other musician says the same thing. Way to go Warren!!

They were epic shows. Well worth buying Mule Tracks for them. I had a great time. Now I am paying for it with a bad cold and stomach and head ache but it was worth it. LOL. NOLA is doing really well. First time I felt hopeful about the place.

Sorry we didn't connect Palm Head.

Dang! Those setlists are rediculous. I saw Mule there last year, and I was quite disappointed. Not because it was not awesome, as they always are, but I was expecting more guests and more unusual song selections as was the case both nights this year. Dr. John's Night Tripper set blew Mule off the stage last year, IMO. Also, any reason why Derek NEVER sits in with Mule? I've always wondered.

Might have to get the Mule Tracks on these. Also, very happy to see John Butler sitting in. That guy is a phenomenal guitar player. If you don't believe me, or you are not familiar, check out "Ocean". Absolute beauty....

Chalk up another great year at the - THE - Fest of all Fests. Derek and band were smokin' at the Blues tent on Sunday - I don't know that I have ever heard the crowd as loud in that tent in the past. They were blowing people away in there.

Santana was the highlight of the entire Fest for me. Sun (not rain) coming down, breeze blowing, and Carlos hittin the note all day. His band is fantastic. A very memorable Jazzfest experience.

I had never been to the sporadically booked Tips FQ before and took the opportunity to check out Papa Grows Funk and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band double bill on Saturday night - wow, what a show.

The only real downer in a weekend of highs was Stevie Wonder's set on Friday - major disappointment for my entire krewe. Stevie is a genius and a legend but he was a bust at the Fest as far as I'm concerned. We pulled out about 1/2 way through his show and caught the end of Michael Franti & Spearhead, who were putting on an excellent, high energy show.

Now it's time to enter post-Fest recovery, review the photos and video footage. Only about 350 days till the next Fest....

Does anyone even have a clue how many different songs the Mule has played in their career? Take away all the Dead, and Allman Bros. Warren has played, and just give me a Mule figure. I have many shows I purchased on Mule Tracks, and every tour I've seen at least 20 new songs. Once here in Cincy, they played "Is It My Body' by Alice Cooper. That is the only listing I have ever found for that song.Those NOLA Shows are a must have!

Are you a Stevie Wonder fan??? Stevie's set was absolutely the highlight of my fest! He played almost all of the Innervisions album. He played GIANT STEPS!! The band was tight as can be and Stevie's voice is still perfect after all of these years. What about the set was such a downer?

In case anyone is interested, we have a very prestigious jazz festival here in the Bay area which occurs every year in September, The Monterey Jazz Festival, "the longest running jazz festival in the world." The first one was in 1958, so this is the 51st annual. The Derek Trucks Band will be appearing there this year, to my knowledge for the first time. Nice to see them getting acknowledgment in traditional jazz circles.............

____________________________________

I was hoping against hope that Stevie would tighten-up his set, cut some of the ballads and banter from his typical setlist and go with a more consistent up-tempo show for the Fest. Me coming off of Papa Grows Funk/Zigaboo/Chubby Carrier/Trombone Shorty, it was like shifting from 6th gear to reverse when Stevie came out with close to 10 minutes of somber talk/no music followed by what - another 20 plus minutes worth of ballads? So at this point in time it's pretty clear that Stevie is going with a typical setlist of bunching ballads together, which we didn't want to sit in the rain and listen to. We hung around for "Livin" and "Higher Ground" but that was it. We knew "Ribbon" was coming as we have read the prior show reviews and he would probably stretch it out so we headed over to catch Michael Franti for what we needed, especially in the rain - a higher energy show. We listened to an impossibly long "Ribbon" as we walked around to Congo. If Stevie followed his usual setlist things probably picked back up again but he had already lost us. Sorry Stevie. But that's the beautiful thing about Jazzfest - if something is not working for you, there are plenty of options just a short walk away. And of course I am stoked for any of those who really had a great time at Stevie's set - I (along with my krewe) just weren't among those who did for the period of time we were there.

What a weekend! This truly stands out as one of my favorite Jazz Fests ever. Palmhead, it was truly a joy hanging out with you at setbreak between Derek and the Meters Joy is a very cool lady, you need to hold on to her! A total pleasure hanging with you both.

I have to echo Counselor's comments about Santana. I've seen Santana many times--heck, I've seen Santana AT JAZZ FEST many times--but this show was really special to me. The first half of that set was as good as any live music I've ever heard, the following

sequence was magic...

Everybody's Everything
Incident at Neshabur (WOW! Best moment of the whole weekend for me)
Batuka
No One To Depend On

Talk about bringing the heat! That was 30 minutes or so of in-your-face Santana power, and the sound was so good that you could FEEL every note from the back of the crowd.

Stevie Wonder was cool, I really enjoyed his set, but I can see how some found it disappointing. There were a lot of ballads and low-key songs that didn't translate that well to a huge muddy field full of 100,000 people who wanted to hear Stevie kick out the funk. Jazz Fest crowds can be tough--they expect you to BRING IT, and they are not easily impressed unless you blow them out of their socks the way Santana did.

Speaking of blowing people out of their socks, Derek was definitely kicking butt all weekend. The Howlin' Wolf show was as good as I've ever heard him. I saw one taper, hopefully that recording gets out and about sooner rather than later. Besides his own set, Derek was really good with the Funky Meters. He seemed more comfortable than at last year's House of Blues show, and he really ripped the place apart on "Funkify Your Life," which is not only a great song, but some of the best advice you'll ever hear.

Here are setlists for Derek at the Howlin' Wolf and Santana at the Fairgrounds...

Derek Trucks Band Howlin' Wolf 5/3/08

Start time about 11 PM

Crow Jane
Anyday (spectacular playing from Derek, over the top)
I Know (really digging this new tune)
Down Don't Bother Me (I like the new arrangement)
Done Got Over
I Wish I Knew
My Favorite Things (VERY abstract and dissonant at times, free jazz style)
Get What You Deserve (Another new song that really stands up strong)
Up Above My Head (tremendously joyful, a great version)
Stand Back
The Weight

here's a partial setlist for the Meters...(they didn't start till 1:45 AM and were still playing when we left around 3 AM or so)

Intro Jam
Sing a Simple Song (Sly and the Family Stone)
Funky Miracle
Look-Ka Py Py
Funky Soldier (aka Keep On Marching)
Love Slip Up On Ya
Funkify Your Life
Fiyo On the Bayou

and last but certainly not least, the mighty Santana...

? (I think they opened with Jingo, but I was still working my way across the Fairgrounds)
Everybody's Everything
Incident at Neshabur
Batuka
No One To Depend On
Naima (the John Coltrane tune, this was a very special treat)
Maria, Maria
Foo Foo
Black Magic Woman
Gypsy Queen
Oye Como Va (this classic sequence was right on the money)
Make Somebody Happy (Instrumental version, but definitely a short jam on that theme in the background while Carlos rapped to the crowd)
Smooth/Dame Tu Amor
Soul Sacrifice
Angel Chant

I'll do a full review for www.hittinthenote.com, look for it in a few weeks.

Yes, that song. Looking it up I found out it was written by Naomi Neville. Cyril Neville sung the song in NOLA, in a wonderfully dramatic fashion.


Went to a fortune teller
To have my fortune read
I didnt know what to tell her
I had a dizzy feeling in my head

She took a hold of my palm
She said son you feel kind of warm
And then she looked into a crystal ball
She said youre in love

I said how could that be so
Im not friendly with the girls I know
She said when the next one arrives
You gotta look into her eyes

I left there in a hurry
Looking forward to my big surprise
The next day I discovered
That the fortune teller told me lies

I rushed straight back to that woman
Just as mad as I could be
I said I didnt see nobody
Whyd she made a fool of me

Then something struck me
Like lightning from up above
While looking at the fortune teller
I fell in love

Now Im a happy fella
Im married to the fortune teller
Im as happy as I can be
Now I get my fortunes told for free

Naomi Neville is actually a pen name that Art Neville used back in the day. "Ride Your Pony" is another classic under the Naomi Neville name.

I believe Naomi is the mother of Art, Aaron, Charles and Cyril, if I remember right.
