Neil Young – Carnegie Hall – January 6th, 2014 – Once in a lifetime concert, as Neil Young fuses his greatest moment in the sun with a set of of his folk rock masterpieces from the early 1970s. It was one of those shows where anybody who was there will never forget it and anybody who wasthere should be grateful. The controversy as to wheter he was being difficult or not, not withstanding, what you lost in sentiment you gained in sharpness.
The Meters – BB Kings – January 3rd, 2041 – The Icons Of Funk – Specifically, Leo Nocentelli, Bernie Worrell and Fred wesley, playing funk classics. All three were superb but Bernie was really on fire this night
Jason Isbell – Lincoln Center – January 30th, 2014 – A classic interpreter of his own material, and pretty good with a cover as well, plays a 90 minute set for “American Songwriters” in what stands as the loveliest room in the city.
Don Giovanni Showcase – Music Hall Of Williamsburg – February 7th, 2014 – A veritable who’s who of power punk 2014, lead by the unquestionable brilliance of Shellshag, with supergroup Upset in the middle and Worriers at the top of the evening. If they have begun at 730pm instead of 830pm I could have caught Laura Stevenson as well.
Jessica Molaskey – The Allen Room – Broadway stalwart joined by her husband and her daughter to sing stealthful rearrangements of classic Joni Mitchell songs. For American Songbook.
