Overview

Okonokos

Even before their breakthrough, It Still Moves, My Morning Jacket had built a buzz as a great live act: With their long hair swinging in circles, their penchant for dramatic shifts in dynamics, and their indulgence in epic guitar solos, the Louisville, Kentucky, band created an impressive spectacle. But the main draw was always Jim James's voice: lathered with reverb, soaring into a high tenor, earthy but otherworldly. So the double live album Okonokos makes sense, just as live albums made sense for fellow classic southern rockers like the Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Little Feat. Drawing heavily from Z and It Still Moves but reaching back to At Dawn and various early EPs, Okonokos demonstrates the depth and breadth of MMJ's talents. The band shifts easily from compact bursts of joy like "What a Wonderful Man" to gentle, country-flavored acoustic ballads like "Golden" to epic guitar jams like "Steam Engine" (one of four songs that stretches beyond the eight-minute mark). Although the set bypasses the unusual covers the band often tosses into its shows, Okonokos (which is also a DVD film produced by Sam Erickson) makes a good case for My Morning Jacket's place as one of the best live bands of its era.
