John Brown’s Body Live at the Rickshaw Stop

October 4, 2009

I usually don’t stray too far from the local San Francisco jazz scene, but when my good friends from Ithaca and Boston pass through town spreading killer reggae, dub, and drums and bass vibes, I just can’t help myself. So, here’s a rockin’ multimedia piece I put together of John Brown’s Body playing What We Gonna Do live at the Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco on September 24, 2009.

The best part is since these guys are totally down with open recording for personal, non-commercial use, I was permitted to upload the entire concert in all it’s 16-bit CD-quality glory to the Live Music Archive where it can be downloaded for your audiophile listening pleasure. Good times as always with these cats, and it sure is nice seeing them roll with a live brass section!
