Just downloaded a pretty good audience recording of this from etree.org, and had a few thoughts....

--Midnight In Harlem is a great song, and I think it's the best solo vehicle Derek has ever had. His solo on this version is just soaring, majestic and beautiful, and I think the horn section compliments him better on this version than others I've heard. I also love the "alap" style intro, Indian style, where Derek sets the mood for the piece. Perfection! Derek is at his best when he gets to incorporate Eastern sounds into his music.

--Nobody's Free is my favorite vocal I've ever heard from Susan, and another really great tune. This version has a Coltrane-esque free jazz freakout in the middle that I love! Straight from the Col. Bruce playbook So happy to hear the positive crowd reaction after several minutes of pretty weird music.

--10 minute Mahjoun? SWEET! I'm sure that was all Susan's idea I bet Derek wanted to play some short, poppy tune, and Susan was all like "No, let's play a 10-minute instrumental with world music overtones instead." She is such a harsh taskmaster! When will she release her infernal hold on Derek and let him do what he wants? THINK OF THE CHILDREN!

Still haven't finished the whole show, but I like what I'm hearing

I was at Mountain Jam ,Rob and the Tedeschi Trucks Band set was on of my favorites of the weekend. The sound was dialed in from the beginning. Awesome stuff.

My favorite TTB tune is 'Love Has Something Else To Say'. It just rocks!
That's my "go to" tune to play for peeps that never heard the band.

That is a good one, ooogie That tune maybe the best showcase for the horn section, they sound really good on that one. I like the bridge part that Mike sings the best

I also really like the version of Wade In The Water from this show. Downright haunting! Derek plays some really, really good stuff in this tune, and Mark and Mike get to shine as well.

Speaking of which, is that Mike Mattison singing lead on I Know? I thought Susan had him chained up in the basement or something, but he sounds great on this show! I am a big Mike fan, and I can understand the DTB fans who hunger for more Mike and less Susan, but they seem to be letting him sing more, which is a good thing in my opinion.

I like the way Derek is interacting with the horns at this show, trading licks with Saunders and Kebbi and reacting to little things the horns are doing. That is some very cool stuff

To be balanced, I will say that Rollin' and Tumblin' with Susan singing doesn't do it for me, and I thought Bound For Glory lost the groove a little bit at the end. A few rough patches here and there, but overall, an excellent show.

I was in attendance as well. About 15 yards back directly in front of Derek. Suffice it to say, the entire band was out of this world and the highlight for me was also "Midnight in Harlem." I would also agree that they sounded fantastic right out of the gate and never let down. I also have to say I thought Derek was the most animated I've ever seen him (relatively speaking of course) and he seemed to really be in a good mood and loved the Mt. Jam crowd....as did the entire band.

My favorite is "Bound for Glory"

You must have been just a little bit behind me. I was very impressed with this set. This is my first time seeing them since the Highline Ballroom way back last year when the tour was just starting and they are much tighter and better than they were then.

First and last time I saw them was the Highline Ballroom show.

I had tickets to the following Beacon shows months later but due to some work conflicts I had to give them up.

I got tics for the two upcoming shows at the Beacon in September. I think I'm gonna go to both. Great hall.

Btw, Leon Russell is opening the first show and The Wood Brothers the second show.

Fair enough, Alan I appreciate the positivity.

That is sort of the flip side of why I posted my critiques, to show that I'm not a mindless yes man who eats up anything this group does.

One more minor quibble: I sure wish they would let Kofi play more flute! He is absolutely stunning on Mahjoun at this show. It reminded me that one of my biggest beefs with latter-day DTB, and now TTB, is that I will never understand how you have somebody that good at an instrument in your band, and have him spend most of his time playing his second-best instrument.

By the way, here is the link to the recording I've been listening to, pretty good for an audience recording...

Fantastic set. What was funny also was the sun came out as soon as thet started playing and it was the first and last time the sun shone all weekend. It was amazing listening to Derek solo on Midnite in Harlem w the sun shining and that beatiful mountain backdrop. Almost too much to take in at one time.

Sure can't beat the combination of great music, a good vibe in the crowd, and the beautiful Catskills surrounding the entire venue. It certainly can be overwhelming. The setting of Mt. Jam is a big part of the appeal for me and not just the actual line up. Over the years Mt. Jam has become sort of a brief escape from my usual mundane life and I always get a little melancholy when packing my gear and heading out Monday morning. Even leaving the Mt. itself on Sunday night makes me feel a bit sad.

I was one of the original folks to get this as a sort of gift from Marty all those years ago - and I fixed the droip out by copying from the other channel - it's seamless, but purists might say it's not the original anymore....
I didin't check to see if the "corrected" version is available for DL....
