The Xmas Jam thread had me thinking back to 2011 when Bela Fleck, Jimmy Herring, Jeff Sipe and Bill Evans put together a combo. Casey Driesen on fiddle was just icing on the cake. So good, and I wish they had done something more permanent from this.

I guess others for me would be the two Holiday Hootenannys these past two yrs (and it may be 12-22 this yr, according to T-dawg), and in the early 90's, for at least 2 yrs, there was this deal called the Zambiland Orchestra. Really fun in each case seeing mostly Atlantans jam, w/ no pressure to please.

That 2011 Xmas Jam combo was excellent Brock. The highlight of the entire show for me.

A great show I saw this year had Ike Stubblefield, Grant Green, Jr., Shane Pruitt, and I don't know who on bass and drums. It was a great show.

And also this year there was a show with Roosevelt Collier, Oteil, Kofi, Jeff Sipe, Count M'Butu, and Shane Pruitt. That was a great one!


We'd all like to vote for the best man, but he's never a candidate.

I saw UV Hippo's cover Paul Simon's Graceland was a fantastic set. The show was to raise money for the local independent community radio station. They had some help from some other local musicians on horns and percussion. Was a great set then they came back and did a second set of there music and that was an even better set. The funny thing is the majority of the crowd was there only for the first part and there was maybe 50 people left for the second set (place holds maybe 200).

They've done two shows (outside of Christmas Jams) and I've caught both: Edwin McCain, Warren Haynes and Kevn Kinney. Jaw dropping good 90 minute acoustic shows (both at Music Midtown - 1997 and 1998).

I was lucky also to see them at the 2000 Christmas Jam perform together on a couple of songs.

If they would do a small theatre tour, life would be grand!

1988. Vietnam Veterans Memorial Benefit at Memorial Hall, Kansas City, KS

Hosted by Peter Fonda

Stephen Stills & David Crosby
George Thorogood & The Destroyers
John Fogerty

All Star Jam encore - "Roll Over Beethoven"

Select memories include Stills & Crosby doing "For What It's Worth," how damn cool Peter Fonda looked and how totally stinkin' drunk Thorogood was when he came back out for the all-star encore.

Bought a poster that night signed by every artist in attendance. Later stolen and sold off by a friend of a roommate so he could buy a bag. Bastard.

Not really a "one-off" since they somehow managed to make a whole tour out of it (well, 6 shows), but the 1986 Amnesty International benefit concerts "A Conspiracy Of Hope":

Neville BrothersJoan Baez (backed by the Neville Bros)
Lou Reed
Bryan Adams

Bob Geldof & Dave Stewart (impromptu 2 song acoustic set to fill some time when the stage changeover was taking too long)
Bob Dylan backed by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
Jackson Browne
Peter Gabriel
(the concert ended with everybody on stage singing Dylan's "I Shall Be Released".

I was at the Bob Dylan 30th anniversary show at Madison Square Garden in October 1992!! One of my favorite concert experiences of all time! I went with my friend from college.

I was recovering from a Tae Kwon Do accident, I broke my leg the previous August, and started to walk again as we wandered outside the arena.... ( I was a green belt, but my karate career was halted forever at that level! )

We wandered backstage (before we got kicked out!) and stole copies of the planned setlist! We were able to predict what songs were coming up, though it became clear that the performers weren't going to stick to said list!

I had NO IDEA why the audience was booing Sinead O'Connor, because I didn't watch Saturday Night Live. In my opinion, she had enough support to sing her intended song but chose to do the Bob marley tune "War."

Overall many musical highlights, especially from Neil Young, George Harrison, Tom Petty, Roger McGuinn, Eric Clapton, Richie Havens, etc. Bob Dylan's opening number "Song to Woody" was the best!

I just received a 4-DVD compilation of the entire event, gotta watch it! I can't believe that it's been over 20 years since then... where does the time go??

Similar lineup to some others that have been mentioned already, but there was a terrific benefit back in 2008 held at a tiny rehearsal soundstage in Atlanta that featured Ike Stubblefield, Jeff Coffin, Jeff Sipe, Oteil, and Grant Green, Jr. They jammed for probably an hour and a half or so, with special guests Geoff Achison and Bishop Don sitting in on a few. Couldn't have been more than 100 or so people there, if that. In-freaking-credible evening.

Bruce Hampton always puts together some unique lineups for one-off gigs when he is between regular bands. Back in the mid-90s after Fiji Mariners broke up, he held court weekly at the Brandyhouse in Atlanta and he would have rotating cast of characters. Some big names would come in town too, like Warren and Johnny Popper and one or two guys from Phish. Seeing Barry Richman and Jimmy Herring on one of those Saturday nights was a highlight - one of the first times I saw Jimmy sit in with Bruce post-ARU breakup. Barry & Jimmy did a killer take on Jeff Beck's Freeway Jam that sits fresh in my mind.

The Zambiland Orchestras could always be interesting. The first handful of shows held at Smith's Olde Bar were particularly chaotic, in a good way. More musicians on (and around) stage performing than audience members. Way different than what it became at the Variety Playhouse, although some of those were terrific too.

If you are talking about a whole one off show I would have to go with Another One For Woody which was an incredible night of music filled with special guests.

If we are talking about a one off group of musicians playing a show together I would probably go for a show from the Gov't Mule Deep End period before they permanently replaced Woody and added Danny. The band was made up of Warren, Matt, Dave Schools, Rob Barracco, and had Audley Freed sitting in most of the night. Played an incredible two sets and I thought at the time that this would end up as the new lineup.

In second place would be Warren teamed up with Railroad Earth at the Capital last year for an amazing acoustic show.

Zambiland Orchestra shows almost deserve their own category How grateful I am that I got to see those shows! When it comes to seeing combinations of musicians together that you never saw before and would never see again, Zambiland absolutely takes the cake. Every one was a totally different and unique experience.

Jazz Fest in New Orleans is famous for this kind of thing, and the Howlin' Wolf show with Derek Trucks sitting in with the Funky Meters stands out as one of the best club shows I've ever seen. Just a match made in musical heaven, at least to me. There are moments of the Howlin' Wolf show that still knock my socks off, even though I've listened to it dozens of times.

I also saw a great show at Jazz Fest last year with Ike Stubblefield, Grant Green Junior, Wycliffe Gordon and Terrence Higgins that was just fantastic. It was everything a one-off superjam should be, but rarely is.

Black Sabbath with Rob Halford on vocals.It was Ozzy's "farewell" show at Irvine Meadows in Orange County in 91 or 92.Sabbath was supposed to open but Ronnie James Dio refused to perform as opening act.Tony and Geezer recruited fellow Birmingham native Halford for one show.To this day it is one of my all time top five shows and I've seen a lot.Symptoms Of The Universe was the highlight with Halford singing like he needed a job.When Ozzy came out with Zakk Wylde doing the most pathetic profanity laced stage banter I've ever heard my friend and I looked at each other and decided we had just seen one of the greatest performances ever so what was the point in sticking around for Ozzy and Zakk's pathetic crap and we split.

Then there was this one... imagine all the guests on stage for the encore.

Howlin' For Hubert
The Apollo Theater
New York, NY
Febraury 24, 2012

This was a benefit show for the Jazz Foundation of America, which helps impoverished musicians (not just jazz musicians) pay the bills for their basic necessities. It was to have been a celebration of Hubert's 80th birthday, but since he passed away, it became a memorial show.

I have never experienced such a stunning array of talent displayed at a single show. I have tried my best with the track titles and artists on stage,but given the changes and number of artists, it was quite a chore- any corrections would be appreciated. There was a video played at the beginning of the show, but since I do not know its source and whether any of the music played was commercially released, I just left the last 30 or so seconds, per the suggestions of the mods. There were no cameras present to indicate a DVD was shot. A CD release would be very difficult, given the contracts of all the various artists, so enjoy it in its glory.

Hats off the the 1500 seat Apollo Theater in Harlem. The venue did the show full justice.

Peter Gabriel, Patti Smith, Steven Van Zandt and others celebrating World Peace Day on the lawn of the UN in September 1986. It was one of those days, perfect in every way. I remember the breeze blowing off the East River while everyone joined in for, "Ain't Gonna Play Sun City". Man, NYC before Giuliani. Those were the days.

There was also the 1979 No Nukes rally on Battery Park. Over 200,000 people on an undeveloped Battery Park. David Crosby's sailboat and the Statue of Liberty served as backdrops for a myriad and diverse line-up of musicians. I was standing in front of the big purple banner that read, "Dykes opposed to Nuclear Energy!"

Good times.

Jack Bruce & Robin Trower – Seven Moons Live

I was at this show in Nijmegen that has been released on CD and DVD in 2009:

"Jack Bruce and Robin Trower for the first time performing live! The news spread like wildfire, the sensation was perfect.

The album follows last year’s critically acclaimed Seven Moons and was recorded in Nijmegen, Holland earlier this year. The album draws largely from the collaboration record as well as a couple of Cream tracks and one song from previous Bruce and Trower album BLT.

The legendary Cream bassist and singer, all his life striking new paths in blues and jazzrock, and the immense talented guitarist of Procol Harum fame who left the chains of 5-minute-pop behind him very early and who never followed any mainstream cliches: Both musicians have written history in rock for more than 40 years.
It was at the beginning of the 80s when they first worked together in a studio with two remarkable records resulting (B.L.T. 1981 and Truce 1982), but the fans had to wait for another meeting of the titans 27 long years: It was not until last year when “Seven Moons” came out.

The Veterans had formed a power trio; together with the a few years younger drummer Gary Husband (Level 42, Gary Moore, John McLaughlin), they recorded exclusively own material. Trower had come up with some basic ideas and Bruce and he worked them out: Fine bluesrock painted in psychedelic colours und wonderful sounds – a record transporting the living spirit of the creative seventies in to the third millennium. “Seven Moons” is the third joint venture of two aged musicians – and it is their masterpiece.

A few months later a fansite announced: “Bruce, Trower & Husband to take ´Seven Moons´ into orbit! For a few nights only, Robin and Jack will get to play live together for the first time ever in late February 2009.”

As a matter of fact: After only two gigs – Karlsruhe and Cologne – the trio was ready to play the dutch town Nijmegen, where the concert would be filmed by a big camera crew. Fans from France, England, Germany and elsewhere arrived in order to enjoy the event together with the dutch devotees of the band.
Somebody placed a notice in the fanblog: With cameras filming the event it might be guaranteed that Bruce, Trower and Husband would play a good concert. Well, this night had something really special, but not because of the camera crew and their equipment. It was only the third joint venture show of the trio, but these guys had found out something meanwhile: They belonged together. They formed a unity. Moments like these bring joy, joy of playing (musicians and footballers know that for sure). You don´t need cameras then.Let´s take a look into the concert.

It´s 8:45 pm. The historic night at the mighty and majestic Concertgebouw De Vereeniging begins on the tick. Jack Bruce, 65 meantime, greets the audience with a short “Good evening” and the band jumps off with the title track of “Seven Moons”. Four minutes later the first solo from Robin´s axe, who ist just a little younger than Jack. Both have become lined with age, but it seems as if they will never make old bones. Bruce´s delight about the fascinating little solo is written in his face; Trower notices that he´s doing more than a good job and is all smiles. Solo finished, rhythm change and the trio sets off for the next song, the bluesy “Lives Of Clay”. Some time later Bruce makes a little comment with understatement: “Now we are beginning to get somewhere.”
They are going to play nearly the whole “Seven Moons” album, they will present a wonderful and easy going version of “Carmen”, a song from ways back, off the “B.L.T.” album, not as glassy as in 1981 but soulful, very deep. And you bet, there are the signature tunes from Bruce´s famous catalogue. “Sunshine Of Your Love”, the song with the legendary bass riff. Here Trower stays true to his own way of playing, no way a Clapton copy but a confident collector of melodies working on his WahWAh without any gimmickry at all. And this version of “White Room” with the “white Hendrix”, as they call Robin in the U.S.A., hasn´t ist been remade into something secial here? The bonus “Politician” shows his full artistry during a great solo.
It´s not only striking in what a laid-back way the trio work the themes of this evening, considering that Nijmegen is only the third live show they have staged together so far. To share the joy the musicians show while performing makes this DVD a document of classic, everlasting rock music. Having Jack Bruce on stage again after some heavy blows of fate is particularly heart warming, the more so as he is laughing away at things. What does the scot tell who´s ever so economical in his choice of words? “It is fantastic to be here. For me personally ist is fantastic to be anywhere, actually…” It feels good to have musicians of that kind among us."

I saw Elvis Costello and The Roots at Brooklyn Bowl Monday night. Great show at a cool venue I hadn't been to before. They played most of their new album and a couple of Elvis' songs - Watching the Detectives, Spooky Girlfriend, I Want You, Pump It Up - and covered "I Found Out" to close. I'm guessing they're not going to do any more full shows since The Roots have their Late Night gig, and it was excellent. They're a hell of a band.

My list of “One Of’s”

Bobfest @ MSG – Great show with stage loaded with talent, My only show seeing Johnny Cash & June Carter… As mentioned earlier by others…. a Home Run!

Atlantic’s 40th @ MSG – Another whopper and a marathon at that. It started @ 1:30pm and ended at around 1:30am. It was an odd show. It was special with all the oldies. It had some great reunions that included the likes of Led Zep (with Jason Bonham), C,S,& N, Vanilla Fudge, Foreigner, Rascals, Iron Butterfly, Genesis, Wicked Wilson Pickett, Etc , Etc, Etc. The odd part enters as some afternoon acts like Peabo Bryson & Roberta Flack and Peter Gabriel did songs live and then we had to watch again on big video screens as HBO had the highlights on at 8pm. I had partially obstructed view tickets that were 8th Row side stage. The 7th Row was all the feeds for the TV cam’s. and the first 6 were for the stars. One cool moment was when Robert Plant and companion came out and sat in front of us to watch C,S, & N only and then went back stage again.

John Lee Hooker Tribute @MSG - partial bands of ABB (Gregg & Warren) & Little Feat played together, Johnny Winter, Bonnie Raitt, Albert Collins, Ry Cooder, Willie Dixon, Bo Didley, + - It was not the most fluent of shows, but one for the ages.

The Round-up @ JFK Stadium, Philly, PA ‘81 – The Outlaws, Molly Hatchet, 38 Special, Marshall Tucker, and The Allman Brothers Band. Need I say anything?

Levon Helm Tribute @ Izod Arena- WOW, Much Love!

Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Night 1 – WOW #2

Another One For Woody @ Roseland Ballroom, NYC – another WOW and I scored a signed VIP poster for $100 that I later got signed by Rich Robinson, & the NMA Duo at later dates as they were onstage at the time the ABB & Gov’t Mule were signing, THAT might be a “One Of” poster! I’m real proud of that baby.

The ARMS Concert – Not a “One Of” show, but a “One Of” mini tour with a few dates in England & 9 in USA (I think?) I caught one of the MSG shows.

The Band after the NJ/NY Knights WLAF FB game at Giants Stadium ’91 or ’92 – Great stuff!

There’s a few others that I forgot at the moment or were Great in their own way like the 2 Circle Sound shows in NYC or the BC’s Acoustic shows @ NYC’s Town Hall or any number of ABB Beacon shows with
some special guests & without!

I was at that Derek and the Funky Meters show at The Howlin Wolf and it was a great show. I remember seeing you, Rob and your wife, outside the Wolf between bands or sets. Certainly one of the greatest One-off shows I have ever seen was the Deepest End Concert, Saenger Theater,New Orleans,Jazzfest 2003!!!! By the way, I really loved Derek and the Funky Meters at House of Blues,I believe the year before the one at the Wolf. I've seen so many great shows!!!! I am very lucky.
