The penultimate (that means second-to-last) night of the run... I always find myself waiting a long time after the shows end to write the final reviews, because I've just been burning the candle at three ends for two or more weeks and its time to get back to work and life (and, in this case, to go to Bogota.)
I thought the first set of this show was totally killer diller, and I even turned to my friend Bill at half time and said, "I could go home now happy." The second set was a bit... anti-climactic. maybe because Gregg had to split a third in due to his slipped disc, maybe because the first set was such a peak...
It's the last Saturday night of the run and the electricity in the air is palpable. The band rolls right off into "Done Somebody Wrong" sans the intro shuffle, swinging as first Warren, then Derek introduce themselves. Oteil rocks like he's got the boogie woogie flu. A solid start. Maybe it's where I'm sitting tonight (back third of the orchestra, left side) but I can really hear the B3 on "Leave My Blues at Home." It is an especially slippery version, with an especially satisfying rendition of the two-man guitar fire hose weave that has you bending to and fro at the waist... just like Oteil is.
"Come and Go Blues" is one of my favorite Derek vehicles; he lays out sweet lines between the verses, but on the end he soars and swoops with extra mustard (brown mustard to be precise.) Then Marc goes to town with the Santana vibe, and Jaimoe and Butch join in, as "Egypt" unfolds. Derek tickles the inside of your head, then blows it up... the band hits a wall, stops on a dime, Derek plays blue lines over calm jazzy space. Then Warren takes the band through some epic piece he's writing on the fly. Warren and Oteil are drawn together into a vortex, attracting particles... Oteil thumps out a lick that heralds the song's theme, and a sweet return. A casually stellar version.
On "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl" Warren stings as the band grinds out the greasy riff. After the verse Warren goes all blooz, equal parts Howlin' Wolf (i.e. Hubert Sumlin) and Vanilla Fudge. Derek goes freight train, Warren shovels coal, Derek drives faster and faster, Oteil bumps it back. Warren blazes hard on the outro, as Bruce Katz takes a seat on the right side of the stage on keys; Katz takes a run, Jimmy Hall wanders out and starts blowing harp, and they've seamlessly segued into "Commit a Crime," another chestnut form the Howlin' Wolf catalog. Katz dirties it up, then Hall, all on top of the same single chord... then just as seamlessly back into "Schoolgirl," Warren's vocals and Hall's harp bringing it home.
Hall introduces "I Caught the Katy," which he sings, as "a song about a mule." It is good time party music that makes me wish I was drunk. Katz is all honky tonk behind Hall's vocals. Then "Dreams," which always seems epic on those rare occasions when they bust it out in the first set. Gregg misses a vocal cue early, Warren enters sublime, then it's a full, throbbing sinewy massage. Derek soar into space, then makes a beeline for the song; his solo elicits several ovations.
The place is Saturday night nuts as the song ends, a great way to close the set-- but they aren't finished; apparently there's just time to squeeze in a 16-minute blast of "Black Hearted Woman." After the first solo break, Gregg takes three tries before coming in to sing at the right spot (I don't think of it at the time, but maybe he's hurting...) Derek hangs a note as t
