Last month Dear Jerry: Celebrating The Music Of Jerry Garcia, which documents the May 2015 tribute concert to Jerry Garcia at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland, was officially released in multiple formats including Blu-ray, DVD, CD and digital download. The concert featured the likes of Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart, moe., the Disco Biscuits, Widespread Panic and more honoring the music of Jerry Garcia. Today, footage of the late great Allen Toussaint has been made available for viewing.
Toussaint performed his original “Get Out Of My Life, Woman,” a song Garcia incorporated into his Jerry Garcia Band live repertoire. Just six months later Toussaint himself would pass away at the age of 77. His contribution to the tribute concert, accompanied by a house band featuring musical director Don Was, along with Kreutzmann, Hart, Sam Bush and others, can be seen below:
