Rhythmic magic from stellar jamband

"The Rhythm Devils: Bill Kreutzman and Mickey Hart of Grateful Dead had a shortlived highly potent band going in '06. With psychedelic guitar maestro Steve Kimock (Zero and countless other projects, quite a legend, at least in jamband circles), Mike Gordon of Phish handling the bass, and actually I've never heard him sound better than in these surrondings. African drummaster Sikiru Adepoju and last but not least the formidable Jen Durkin (Deep banana Blackout) handling the vocals with power and Janis Joplin like sensuality.
A mixture of rockclassics like "Piece Of My Heart", Dead-songs like "Fire On The Mountain" and "Loose Lucy" and a slew of newly composed Mickey Hart songs set to lyrics - poignant as always - by Robert Hunter.
A world music feast for the ears and eyes, reminiscent of Santana or Zawinul Syndicate.
This show filmed in Chicago (10-24) is certainly essential - not only for dead heads."
Jen durkin is a surprise

"im not sure what to expect with post -GD incarnations, but after a slow start this dvd has some good songs..i give a positive review for jen durkin who does an amazing job on the song 7 seconds..and she is attractive with good energy too...mike gordon on bass does a good job too, but neither mike or steve kimock really stretch out too much..trippy graphics accompany the songs, but theyre arent too heavy and dont take away from the music..all songs but 1 or 2 are new robert hunter colaborations..the packaging is well done as well..check it out for yourself!"
