Mickey Hart Band is
currently on the road with Reed Mathis handling bass duties. Mathis brought his Tea Leaf Green band
mates Trevor Garrod and Cochrane McMillan on the tour to open each show. We weren't sure
what to expect from this "Tea Leaf Trio," but the
first recording of the group to surface finds them offering interpretations of four
classic rock covers and a TLG original.
Reed, Trevor and Cochrane kicked off their five-song set at Minneapolis's Mill City Nights
with The Beatles' "Mother Nature's Son" and continued on with a Garrod-led "Starman"
Bowie). The John Lennon solo gem "Grow Old With Me" leads into the aforementioned
and a version of Simon & Garfunkel's "America" that's unlike any cover of the iconic
we've ever heard.
