The Black Crowes Join Hands with Kuroda
Following a week of stealth performances under its original moniker, Mr. Crowes Garden, The Black Crowes returned to the stage last night at New Yorks Hammerstein Ballroom. Opening with Gone, The Crowes offered selections from their entire canon, including Twice as Hard, Jealous Again and their trademark cover, Hard to Handle. With guitarist Marc Ford back in the fold, The Black Crowes have returned to the more experimental, jam-oriented sound they toyed with in the mid-1990s. Since returning to the stage last Monday, the Robinson brothers have also colored their setlists with rare-tunes and improvisational interludes. A welcome treat, The Black Crowes also dusted off a number of intriguing covers, including Crosby, Stills and Nash’s Pre-Road Downs, Delaney and Bonnie’s Coming Home and The Beatles Yer Blues. The Black Crowes All Join Hands run continues tonight at the Hammerstein Ballroom. For more on The Black Crowes involvement with jam-nation, check out this feature from out archives:
Also of note: former Phish lighting guru Chris Kuroda will be running lights for The Black Crowes reunion tour, currently scheduled to stretch into the summer months.
