John Scofield, North Mississippi Allstars’ Luther Dickinson and Nigel Hall performed with Soulive for the second show in a row last night. The performance took place at Brooklyn, NY’s Brooklyn Bowl as part of Soulive’s third-annual Bowlive run. Like Bowlive’s opening night, the members of Soulive opened the night on their own before inviting out Scofield for “Nealization,” a song he recorded with the band on 2003’s Turn It Out. Hall—who got his start as an auxiliary member of Lettuce and Soulive but now plays with Warren Haynes Band—joined the four musicians on a Moog Voyager for a cover of Billy Cobham/George Duke’s “Stratus.” He then showed off his vocal skills on a cover of John Lennon’s “Jealous Guy” and aided the group on Freddie Hubbard’s “Provo” as well as Scofield’s “Hottentot.”
While both Scofield and Dickinson sat in with Soulive on Tuesday night, the two guitarist did not take the stage at the same time. So many fans were surprised when at the end of Soulive’s first set, Dickinson joined Soulive, Scofield and Hall on a cover of the Nappy Brown-penned, Ray Charles-popularized “The Night Time is the Right Time” (Hall sang lead on the song).
Dickinson returned at the start of Soulive’s second set and remained onstage for the rest of the night. Hall also emerged for a cover of Muddy Water’s “Champagne and Reefer.” Much like Tuesday’s show, Dickinson and Soulive nodded to Jimi Hendrix during their encore. This time the musicians ran through a rendition of “Spanish Castle Magic,” with Alan Evans and Dickinson sharing lead vocals.
