Plasma – Trey Anastasio

It’s so danged hot here in the northeastern US. This cd seems tailor made for the Friday afternoon festivities of lounging around with a gin & tonic.

Take one part Phish, add a little Sun Ra…and then back it up with the rhythm section of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. This is one big load of fun. Highlights include a horn-based twist on Magilla (from A Picture of Nectar), a bunch of previously unreleased tunes and a very cool cover of Marley’s “Small Axe”.

(this morning’s listen was really supposed to be Norah Jones’ Come Away With Me because I’m going to see her tomorrow night in Boston….but, true to form, I’ve still got vacation cds piled all over the place….and she’s temporary lost under all the Tom Waits, Ornette Coleman and other mind-relaxing stuff).
