Trey Anastasio Band to Tour in Feb. 2010?

Check out the screenshot below taken from a concert booking site – according to which Trey will be going on the road solo early in 2010 with a few dates in the Midwest and Northeast. I’m sure the boys will be ready for a break after Fall and NYE 09′ and this will be a good chance for Trey and likely Mike to get some space and go solo for a bit.

Trey with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra – 5/21/09

Last night, Trey joined forces with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra for the East Coast debut of Time Turns Elastic – his most recent orchestral composition. Big Red also offered up some phish classics such as First Tube, Pebbles and Marbles, and an If I Could encore. He let the Orchestra have their way with Divided Sky and Guyute – two pieces that lend themselves quite nicely to the orchestral setting. Overall, reviews coming in thus far are quite positive and the Phish community’s excitement level for the upcoming tour just went from 10 to 11.

Guitar Gods

Let’s give a nod to some of the greatest guitar players of our time: First, more from the L.A. Forum where the Dead layed down a solid showing last night. In this bootleg, Eric Clapton performs with Joe Cocker, Carlos Santana, and Keith Moon. This is a widely circulated and revered bootleg and is a must have for all collectors.

In this vid, Eric Clapton teams up with Jeff Beck for a blazing take of Sly and the Family Stone’s ‘I Want to Take You Higher’ at the Saitama Super Arena, Japan. They nail’ it – I’m amazed at Clapton’s guitar playing – he maintains a level of technical expertise unlike so many of the greats from his generation. Clapton is a true master of the trade:

Next Santana and Derek Trucks rip up the classic ‘Get out my Life Woman’, with a nice ‘Who Knows’ (Hendrix) tease thrown in for good measure. Santana goes fuckin’ nuts around the 6:00 minute mark – and I LIKE it! Derek Trucks stands up to the test and lays down some monster licks himself:

It wouldn’t be a guitar gods exhibit without Trey, so, check out this beautiful and euphoric Trey Anastasio Band performance from Bonnaroo 2002, Trey’s first time at Bonnaroo. This is the peak of Trey’s solo band career, a magical moment no doubt for band and audience alike. Trey is on top of his game, and the power of his 15 piece band is unbelieveable:

Lastly, Jimi Hendrix welcomes Jim Morrison as a special guest. Hendrix’s guitar playing is top notch and Morrison is clearly extremely intoxicated. All in all, quite an amusing and fun show:
