All Music Guide - Paula Edelstein
Jazz Is Dead, one of America's premier jam bands, delivers their breakthrough recording with Great Sky River. Recorded "live" at the IMAC Theater in Huntington, NY, with Jimmy Herring on guitar, Alphonso Johnson on bass, T Lavitz on keyboards, and Rod Morgenstein on drums, the band plays a powerful, high-energy set that features their rock chops in all their jam band glory. Three extended jams -- "Estimated Prophet," "St. Stephen/The Eleven," and "Terrapin Station/Dark Star" -- form the heart and soul of the show and the band's true calling. Lovers of groove, electronica, and rock guitar pyrotechnics will find themselves ear deep in the guitar wizardry of Jimmy Herring ...

Jazz Is Dead, one of America's premier jam bands, delivers their breakthrough recording with Great Sky River. Recorded "live" at the IMAC Theater in Huntington, NY, with Jimmy Herring on guitar, Alphonso Johnson on bass, T Lavitz on keyboards, and Rod Morgenstein on drums, the band plays a powerful, high-energy set that features their rock chops in all their jam band glory. Three extended jams -- "Estimated Prophet," "St. Stephen/The Eleven," and "Terrapin Station/Dark Star" -- form the heart and soul of the show and the band's true calling. Lovers of groove, electronica, and rock guitar pyrotechnics will find themselves ear deep in the guitar wizardry of Jimmy Herring on these jams. Absent is drummer Jeff Sipe, but Rod Morgenstein definitely holds down the rhythm section with an unreal and potent drum solo on "St. Stephen/The Eleven." T Lavitz goes the distance and plays an intense set as does Alphonso Johnson, with his basslines speaking out as much more than an appendage to Lavitz's keyboards or Herring's guitar. Great Sky River exceeds the group's 1999 "live" release, Laughing Water: Wake of the Flood Revisited -- which also explored and featured classic Grateful Dead compositions -- because the performance was not altered or overdubbed. This CD is truly "live" and a cool 21st century representation of Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter's ripe rock repertoire.

    Let Dive Right In!

    Finally the trilogy has been completed. I loved their first 2 CDs so I had to pick this one up right away. Here¿s my basic critique of the album. Jazz Is Dead crank out hyper extended jam rock versions of Grateful Dead classics. Their albums are definitely a must have for Deadheads if you don¿t mind an absence of lyrics, but I say, kick back, relax and make up your own. Led by the burning guitar lines of Jimmy Herring (who now plays with Phil Lesh and sat in last summer with the Allman Bros) and held together but the fat grooving bass of Alphonso Johnson (was in Bobby & The Midnites), the band¿s improvisations are consistently intriguing; it¿ll blow your mind to hear searing renditions of ¿Blues for Allah¿, ¿China Cat Sunflower¿ and ¿Terrapin Station¿ (Parts I & II)¿. I know some of you may think it¿s blasphemous for anyone to cover GD, but any true fan knows they have to get this CD for one reason only, a beautifully recorded version of the majestic ¿Morning Dew¿! It¿s refreshing to finally get a version of that song on CD. I personally think if your looking to whet your appetite with a new tasty flavor of an old recipe then take a leisurely dip in the Great Sky River.
