CD Reviews

Step Into the Musical Cloud
J. Merritt | 01/25/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This, my friends, is some very cool s**t. Loose, languid, spacy, jazzy, Very, very cool. If you're like me and you just cannot hear too many 30-minute versions of "Dark Star," then track down a copy of this somewhere. Others can attack Jerry for not being a bonafide jazz musician all they want. I don't think that was really the point here, and even if it was these guys still managed to miss the target in a fascinating way. Put it on, tune out (in a psychological or chemically enhanced way, whatever you like), and enjoy. Slowly walking down the hall...faster than a cannonball...

Oh yeah."
Just for fun

"The least you expect, the greater your chances of being rewarded with some exceptionally beautiful music. This is improvisational jamming at it's purest form, with Jerry having some of his finest minute moments- free to pick- free to move- free to leave the realm of the ever-changing musical landscape at will. Venutian Blues is a true gem with the other 3 idyllic songs running a close behind. This is cosmic jamming folks- this is Jerry at liberty with what he loves to do best- plugging away at the guitar. He was truly a beautiful man."
Jerry is out of the box

"I have been a Grateful Dead and Garcia Fan since the 70s. I have been to plenty of shows and heard a wide variety of Garcia's guitar playing and I have also been playing guitar for 21 years. This CD has to be the best "impromtu out of the box" guitar and keyboard work I have ever listened to. Side Trips is Jerry's outlet from the day to day job of playing with the Dead. His guitar playing here has no boundries or presets because the songs are pure improvisational jams that offer a fresh new outlet for Jerry's knack for music. For Jerry, it's like a vacation from his day job. (Which for him was not a bad job to have!). I would put away any pre-existing expectations (no Eyes of the World or Franklins Tower jams here) and enjoy the exciting and new guitar offerings that Jerry provides along with a first rate keyboard partner and support band. Get this CD! You won't stop listening to it especially while driving in your car."
