DOWNLOAD: Superjam featuring Porter/Stoltz/Deitch/Benevento @ House of Blues – 5/6/11

- 5/6/11 @ NOLA Parish Room

Easily my favorite set of the Jazz Fest weekend and at last, it’s finally available for our enjoyment. The freeform, improvisational grooves of the first half of the show have been given some interesting track names by guitarist and show all-star Brian Stoltz. Click the links below to check out this pretty solid audience recording of some late night Jazz Fest magic.

From JamBase.com Jazz Fest Review

After a short breather at home, our crew made it down to the French Quarter for a Superjam that quite possibly carried the weekend – an intricately dark, psychedelic rave up highlighted by the dexterous, controlled guitar work of Brian Stoltz with George Porter Jr., Marco Benevento and Adam Deitch. After about an hour of dim lights and heavy jams, the lights were finally lifted and the band went off on Jimi’s “Fire,” Cee Lo’s “Fuck You” and War’s “Why Can’t We Be Friends.” If there is a recording of this show in circulation it is recommended to check it out, a truly one-of-a-kind performance that showed me what Jazz Fest After Dark is all about.
