Jerry and Branford in 94'

1991, Madison Square Garden, the Dead and jazz legend Branford Marsalis get together for a beautiful night of music. Turn to the ‘Help on the Way’, the interplay between Phil’s crisp bass sound and Branford’s deep, in-the-pocket grooves is testament to what this combo can bring. The 13 minute ‘Shakedown’ opener is also a great indication of what this gem has in store. Give it a listen – I reccomdend the SBD stream to get a nice mix of all the parts – but the AUD really captures the energy of the Garden. Hell, listen to em’both,  you won’t be dissapointed!
