Martin's Song

Tift Merrit opened with a lovely set of new songs. Just her, a bass player, and Eric Heywood.

The Paramount is a great place to listen to live music. It is an old movie theater from 1930s complete with a once segregated balcony. Fantastic acoustics and the band sounded really superb because of it. A polite but enthusiatic crowd of 700 to 800. Most folks there were old enough to be my parents but they really responded to the Jayhawks. Even some old timers dancing and the band loved it. The songs from Mockingbird Time were fantastic. The title song Mockingbird Time was just awesome. Eric Heywood came on stage to perform the pedal steel on Tiny Arrows. Just awesome work from Eric tonight. A decidely pro Rainy Day crowd. Standing ovation for I'd Runaway. I thought She Walks In So Many Ways and Closer to Your Side were very good and tight. Stand Out In The Pouring Rain was fantastic. It was cool to hear some Creekdippers! The band was very enthusiastic about How Can I Send Tonight and Karen is way better than Vic every night. The caper might have been Love Hurts. I thought Mark and Gary hit it just right and that is a tough duet to sing. Eric Heywood had a gorgeous solo during that song. Audience knew it and applauded without a cue. The encore sort of died out with the last two songs. The band was tired and it has been a long tour and its Sunday night so I understand. I saw Stephen McCarthy in the lobby! Too bad he couldn't have made a cameo appereance. From the balcony I was surprised how many people were on Spacebook during the show. All in all a fantastic night that far exceeded my expectations. One final note: The band needs to stay together and keep going. Perleman, Tim, and Karen were the steady backbone of the sound tonight and Gary and Mark just are at the peak of their long music careers right now.

Thanks for the review. I'm glad they played 'How can I send tonight', a brilliant song of the highly recommended 'December's Child'.

One correction: They played Black-Eyed Susan between Miss Williams' Guitar and Angelyne.

Cutting Red's Song from the playlist is a bit concerning.

What was with the tempo on Waiting For The Sun

Did anyone else feel the song really slow down each time they would go to the accented part right before the "it was not lost on me" bit? Love Tim, but something was slowing WAY down during that song. Anyone else notice this? Just me? Darn.

shocker surprise to hear "December's Child" tune from the whole band. Dig that album. One question though. "Stand Out In the Pouring Rain?" Did they combine the two rain songs of the album, or which one was it?

I think I meant Stand Out In the Rain. It was really good too.

WTF.....

On Saturday, I asked Gary (out by the bus) before the show if I could make a request and he said "I'm listening". I said I know it's Marks Song but how about Martins Song and he said "I can never get Olson to play that song"

Good for Charlottsville.......
