This is a list of the best of the live music to hear along the Front Range, next week.

As usual, I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue’s name. For a more comprehensive list of live music to hear locally, check-out the Coming Attractions page. That’s What I Know, So That’s What I Know!! Enjoy!!

New Releases 12/04: COLDPLAY, JOHNNY CASH, ISRAEL VIBRATION & More…

From the title, it may be easy to think that there is a real depth to the list of new releases for the first Friday in December, but you will probably be surprised to find a rather short list this week. Besides Coldplay, Johnny Cash and Israel Vibration, there is also a new album coming out from Tom Jones. There are also some collections being released by Bruce Springsteen and Them. Other than these six, there is not much else to speak of, but I did manage to find a few more to get the list over the ten album mark.

  • Alan Vega (feat. Alex Chilton + Ben Vaughn- “Cubist Blues”
  • Bruce Springsteen- “The Ties That Bind: The River Collection”                 (box set)
  • Coldplay- “A Head Full Of Dreams”
  • Earthrise Soundsystem- “Awakening: Earthrise Soundsystem Project”
  • G-Eazy- “When It’s Dark Out”
  • Israel Vibration- “Play It Real”
  • Johnny Cash- “Man In Black: Live In Denmark 1971”
  • JR & PH7- “The Standard”
  • Rick Ross- “Black Market”
  • Them- “The Complete Them: 1964-1967”              (box set)
  • Tom Jones- “Long Lost Suitcase”

This is the relatively short list of new releases for this Friday, December 4th. I will have the difficult task of choosing one of these albums for a review, and I am pretty sure it won’t be a box set. Check-back on Saturday to see which album I pick and to read the review. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!!

Album Review: LEFTOVER SALMON MARKS A QUARTER OF A CENTURY WITH “25”

Originally, the list of new releases for this week only had about half of what it usually would. On Wednesday, I discovered a couple more albums, that were slated to come out yesterday including a live compilation from Colorado’s own, Leftover Salmon, titled “25”, which commemorates the band’s 25 year history. The album contains 25 career spanning tracks that were recorded on tour during 2013 and 2014. Led by co-conspirators, Vince Herman and Drew Emmitt, Leftover Salmon may be most commonly linked to bluegrass music, but this band has been crossing genre-lines for a quarter of a century, with a sound that has been self-described as “polyethnic Cajun slamgrass”. Though, there were a couple of other good possibilities for an album review, I was pretty quickly sold on Leftover Salmon’s album because I have been a fan for eighteen years, and it was a steal on iTunes, with over two and a half hours of live performances going for only $9.99.

There is a revival-ish vibe on “Midnight Blues” with Drew on vocals and mandolin, while Bill Payne brings the organ on-board for a little extra spirituality. Andy Thorn has only been with the band for just over five years, but has settled in nicely.

“Keep Driving” is a speed-grass number with Vince singing about time on the road to get back to the one he loves. Vince’s vocal improve becomes a blanket of wonder, that is woven with piano, mandolin and banjo.

The southern honky-tonk of “Gulf Of Mexico” is jazzed-up with the addition of a brass section. Drew gets a little twang going on this cut, but his electric guitar fits the atmosphere, perfectly.

The band goes back to the 90’s with the Vince Herman powered-party/ love song, “Euphoria”. Between the rag-time piano, brass and bluegrass this song is like a Muppet musical in your ears.

Banjo virtuoso, Andy Thorn takes vocal duties on the thoughtful “Behind The Rain”. Thorn’s note-trading with Bill Payne’s piano is gorgeous, while Drew rocks the guitar, during a kick-ass jam.

The Bob Dylan classic, “Tangled Up In Blue”  is given a country-grass work-up, while Vince’s guitar gets a little of the spotlight.

From their 2012 release from the same name, “Aquatic Hitchhiker” starts with some ambient bluegrass, until it becomes a stringed 747, soaring over cliffs and clouds, lakes and deserts with serious momentum. At some points, the playing is so intense, it sounds like the strings are going to begin snapping at any moment. Drummer, Alwyn Robinson is given the room to get experimental with percussion and does a little trio action with Bill Payne and bassist, Greg Garrison.

Vince goes deep-thinking on the appropriately titled, “Woody Guthrie” about the need for another singer-songwriter to tell the stories of what is happening in the world today.

With Little Feat’s Bill Payne on board with Leftover Salmon ,for the last year, or so, it is perfectly natural that they would do the wonderfully memorable Feat gem, “Easy To Slip”. Payne sounds great on vocals and keys, with the rock edge, tempered by a little bluegrass.

A perfect festival number, John Hartford’s “Up On The Hill Where We Do The Boogie” which slips nicely into Leftover Salmon’s eclectic party vibe.

Drew’s high-lonesome vocals are prominent on the lightning fast picker “Down In A Hollow”.

“Liza” seems to be influenced by at least one song of a similar name, but is given more modern lyrics and a Caribbean flare, courtesy of Bill Payne.

The band takes things in a B.B. King “Thrill Is Gone” direction while over-lapping genres on the groovy “Here Comes The Night”, made even more-so by the horns and Bill Payne’s organ work.

Vince takes the lead on the vintage “Rag Mama Rag”, which is folk-rock accompanied by the horns.

“Dark Green Thing” is a celtic excursion with Drew on fiddle to take it back to the old world. Things take more of a psychedelic turn after a couple of minutes and everyone has a hand in the auditory awesomeness of Leftover Salmon’s idea of ‘space and drums’

The band digs into the traditional treasure trove for “Reuben’s Train”, which is handed a steady groove to keep the train on the tracks.

If a 25 year-old band knows about anything, it is travelling at night, which is documented well on the high-energy “All Night Ride”.

The mountains meet the islands on the stoner ballad “She Took Off My Romeos”, complete with a short sing-a-long.

Drew delivers phenomenal vocals on the country-funk of “Light In The Woods”.

“Tu N’as Pas Aller” is a French Quarter zydeco sprinkled track, that is sat right on Bourbon Street with the horns.

The band heads a more traditional bluegrass direction on the team powered “Gold Hill Line”.

There is a leisurely vibe on “One Of These Days” with Vince singing about all of the things he;s going to do. This tune is true Americana or maybe something more like muddy-grass.

One of Leftover’s best songs, “River’s Rising” is touched by some clean and clear vocals by Drew Emmitt. This cut builds and then busts out, like a dam breaking, before settling into a little bit of reggae.

I am a huge fan of Violent Femmes, but am not really excited about most of this cover of “Blister In The Sun”. The lyrical delivery is not  as committed as it should be and for once, Vince’s little rap in the middle of a song, is not as compelling or natural.

“Big Railroad Blues”, which was once a staple for the Grateful Dead is an American roots tune about something many kids glamorize in their minds. The brass gives this song a little more of a boogie woogie feel and is a welcome addition.

Here’s to the last 25 years and to the next 25, as well. Other than the “Blister In The Sun”, every track is a masterpiece of musicianship and improvisation. This album may be close to three hours long, but it just makes me want to go see Leftover Salmon, live. They are a highly underrated band with the ability to go to the mountaintop on old-school bluegrass tunes, while often burying the roots under phenomenal jams. I can truthfully say, that “25” may be at the top of the list, for best album of the year, but that will come next month. I recommend this album to fans of Phish, Yonder Mountain String Band and The String Cheese Incident. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!
