Bear Creek 2011 Secret Tree House After Party Jam Session with “Walter Roberts & Deitch”

On the last day of the Bear Creek Music Festival, I was fortunate to get wind of the secret after party jam session that was supposedly for staff only. I was told it would be in the tree house behind the Purple Hat stage. Luckily I was able to borrow a 4 gig memory card from a friend (thanks Bob!) which enabled me to record about an hour of the jam session before I was flat-out out of memory.

When I arrived around 11:30pm, I saw WRD (Robert Walter, Eddie Roberts and Adam Deitch) set up and ready to play. I had previously thought it strange that this new group didn’t get a Bear Creek set, considering all three players were at the festival. So this was quite a treat to close out the weekend with. I didn’t record the first tune, but I did get the next six, approximately 54 minutes, which you can watch in excellent HD quality right here….

For me, the highlights are Topaz‘s saxophone blowing on the first video, Eric Krasno‘s jazz guitar chops on the second video, Louis Cato‘s bass solo at the end of the fifth video, and Ivan Neville jumping on drums to join Jamie McLean for a cover of Delbert McClinton‘s “Standing On Shaky Ground” on the sixth and last video. For those that weren’t able to attend or who didn’t find out about the jam session, sit back and enjoy it here in Funk It vision…

John Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme”, covered and funkifized

John Medeski, Skerik & Adam Deitch – A Love Supreme (John Coltrane cover)
August 13, 2011 Stratton, VT @ Royal Family Affair

To celebrate John Coltrane’s 85th birthday, I bring you two funkifized covers of Coltrane’s seminal recording with his “Classic Quartet”: “A Love Supreme.”

The first cover is a recent performance of a once-only band: John Medeski (of Medeski, Martin & Wood), Skerik (of Garage A Trois & The Dead Kenny Gs) and Adam Deitch (of Lettuce, Break Science & Eric Krasno’s Chapter 2). This one starts out very spacey until Deitch drops his hip-hop inflected beats, creating a wicked groove. The full recording of the show can downloaded at etree.

The second cover is from a 2002 performance by “Mike Clark & Friends.” Mike Clark is, of course, the legendary jazz-funk drummer that started out with Herbie Hancock & The Headhunters. Mike Clark’s “friends” on this occassion were Jessica Lurie (of Living Daylights) on sax and flute, as well as the core of Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey: Brian Haas on fender rhodes and Reed Matthis on bass.

This one is quite a journey. Of special note is the middle section (about 7.5 minutes in) in which Haas takes over the bass lines on the rhodes and Matthis begins to play the lead with his bass running through an octave pedal. They definitely take this piece to a place it’s never been before (or since).
