Anders Osborne and Luther Dickinson Ramble with Phil Lesh Again

Anders Osborne and Luther Dickinson joined Phil Lesh, Tony Leone and Grahame Lesh for their second Ramble at Terrapin Crossroads last night. The first set of the evening included a take on the traditional blues tune “Rollin’ and Tumblin,’” with a verse from The Yardbirds’ “Drinkin’ Muddy Water” included. The group then played “Friend of the Devil” into the North Mississippi Allstars’ “How I Wish My Train Would Come,” which was followed by Jimmy Reed’s “Big Boss Man.”

The second set kicked off with an instrumental version of Bob Dylan’s “Mozambique,” which also featured a “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” jam. That tune segued into Neil Young’s “Down By the River,” which then played into the North Mississippi Allstars’ “Mean Ol’ Wind Died Down.” The second half of the set consisted of a “Scarlet Begonias” that went into a jam, followed by Neil Young’s “Cortez the Killer” into a set closing “New Speedway Boogie.”

Phil came out to give his donor rap with a twist, as the bassist/Terrapin Crossrods proprietor honored the 52nd anniversary of the first manned space flight, which was completed by Russian Yuri Gagarin on April 12, 1961. The show then ended with an encore of “Fire On The Mountain.”

I watched most of this on the webcast and I have to say it was pretty darn cool. It also reminded me of something. Luther Dickinson is technically good but just a little boring. Anders, however, killed it. The looks that Phil was passing over to Anders during his solos basically consisted of “wow, where the heck did that come from?” and “hell yea!” all night long. No such looks for Luther. It was basically a jam session so there were some hits and misses on choruses and lyrics but it was overall really fun to watch.
