The Band / Re: After seeing night 3 setlist........
« Last post by rincon2 on Today at 12:02 AM »
I saw the Santa Barbara Bowl show in '15, and 2 nights layer the Shrine show. I was ready for a mix up. It was almost the same show. I was a bit bummed. Then they played a show in San Diego that was full of sleepers. The Gibson show was weird. Hard to say why, sound problems? Too much beer? Waltfredo. I think you were the guy at the Shrine show right in front of Carl jumping up and down, sometimes on my feet.

So, who's singing on this? I was really hoping to hear Jim's voice....

Carl recently verified that the vocal for Freebird is Paul Schneider, the actor who sings and plays drums in the movie.

I feel like the cloud over the management of the band and the website & fan club finishing this band doesn't even have a proper way to release anything.truly sad.

What did he say in full about the live album???

The only thing I heard him say was it was done, and they're working on a release date.

thanks jttouch2 for the link.  and garden party and rkwedge for the positive news.  Another solo album?  The man is prolific.  Did he hint at a solo tour??

  I'm hoping for the rocking, guitar heavy stuff Jim hinted at a long time ago.  Does anyone recall that interview?  He was talking about changing directions away from the extra Waterfall stuff into more rock heavy stuff for the new album.

That could make sense as to why he said the Waterfall II is finished. When he initially made the "Scorching Rock & Roll" comment I assumed he meant that would be the band's next studio album and that the other waterfall session stuff would be vaulted, but this way the waterfall stuff sees the light of day quickly and the "scorching rock and roll" also comes through quickly on Jim's solo album.
I'd still prefer to have guitar flaming rock stuff from the full band though instead of just Jim solo-I definitely prefer Carl's guitar playing to Jim's, especially after Carl completely shredded the NYE run

Yes.... "scorching" sounds good and was the term!  I figured it was for the next MMJ album also.  Interesting thoughts jttouch2.  I feel like Jim saves his guitar playing for MMJ.  But maybe not this time?  He played bass for New Multitudes and New Basement Tapes.   I'm not sure about Monsters of Folk, but maybe them too?  Regions of Light and Eternally Even isn't too guitar heavy.  And during the live shows Jim is usually singing and walking around without an instrument.  On the solo tours, there are a few songs when he plays guitar and often it's just during part of a particular song.

I'm glad stuff is on the horizon and the 2018 hiatus sounds like a break instead of a hiatus before gearing up for a large 2019!

I haven't done a lot of research but how often do they play Sooner?

Sooner has been played 54 known times at MMJ shows -- first at Louisville's Waterfront Park on 8/28/2002 and last on the Beacon run -- working out to an average of about 13.5 shows between appearances since its debut.

slow clapping

I'm pretty sure easy way was at all 54.


 :grin:     No doubt about it!
 
Including JJ solo gigs, the number would go to 61, with the first occurrence on 4/30/2002 at Jillian's in Louisville, and the average gap between Sooner shows would then be about 14.5.
