Bill Kreutzmann Trio | 02.13.09 | S.F.

Bill Kreutzman Trio :: 02.13.09 :: The Independent :: San Francisco, CA

By all reports, this relatively new trio led by Grateful Dead percussionist extraordinaire Bill Kreutzmann is on fire. Billy spars with bassist Oteil Burbridge (Allman Brothers Band) and guitarist-singer Scott Murawski (Max Creek, Mike Gordon), drawing from their varied backgrounds in a most compelling way. This performance featured an opening set from New Monsoon acoustic guitar/banjo whiz Bo Carper and a guest appearance from swamp doctor Papa Mali. JamBase was lucky enough to have lens lady Sue Weiand on the spot to capture some of the magic.

Some enterprising fan put together this clip of the trio playing "Eyes of the World" at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago on April 20, 2008. Grab your hula hoop and let's move!

can't wait for these guys at Mountain Jam. Scott Murawski is one of the most underrated guitarists out there and he's been doin it for so long too. Everybody knows that Oteil can get down too. Check out the axe that Scotts playing and the bass that Oteil is playing- if you put em all together its like a Phish/Dead supergroup! Way to pick em Billy!

Damn Oteil's got some long-ass fingers. Check out that ring finger in his second pic, damn near a foot long. No wonder he rips...

When you say finally a band worth talking about ,who are you talking about? Why so much hate toward Phish ,dollarman their just a band. Get over it, Phish is back and I cant wait to go, I ask that question just for you. Its Trey. I think its cool if you dont like phish but why the hate.

It looks like Scott Murawski is playing a Paul Languedoc guitar...aka the guy who makes Treys guitar. $10,000 a pop!

i'd rather have an irwin, but a languedoc would suffice.

Saw the shows in Denver and Boulder and they were both mind blowing.....Kreutzmann-Burbridge is one of the most psychedelic, intensely layered rhythm sections around.....and it's only 2 (of 3) people......Murawski ain't too shabby himself, but I wouldn't mind seeing them add a Keys player like Bill McKay or Rob Barraco.

Trey needs to be credited every time anyone plays the guitar he does? That's hilarious. Scott needs to credit no one. Guy is beyond a master...

And if you only knew the story behind it you would put your foot in your mouth...
