Jam Cruise: The world’s best floating music festival

Every year, over 3,000 music lovers of all ages pack up their shorts, swimsuits and creative costumes and head south to take a break from winter.

They converge at a south Florida cruise ship terminal, where all the stage shows and cheesy lounge singers have been kicked off the ship, replaced by some of the country’s best groups from the jam band/festival scene. It’s Jam Cruise, and the 12th floating music festival took place January 4th the first cruise on MSC’s new ship, Divina, after four years on the Poesia. It was also the first departure from the Port of Miami, which is a much nicer facility than the Port Everglades terminal. And my hat’s off to the folks at Cloud 9 Adventures and all their supporting cast.

New Releases:

The BrewThe BrewThe BrewThe Brew - Triptych 3 CD set - Last year The Brew took stock of what they had created since 2008’s Back To The Woods. The result is their most ambitious project to date; the release of a three-album set called Triptych. Each album reflects a facet of this multitalented, New England-based group: A Garden In The Snow, showcasing song-craft; Light From Below, bringing live-show energy into the studio; Hard Enough To Break, a romp of polish and power.

Triptych: The Brew’s triple tour-de-force, hailed by seminal rock writer Steve Morse as “…raising the bar for an eclectic sound that touches everything from classic rock to Appalachian root notes and Romantic classical music, topped with dashes of art rock, psychedelia and jazz funk. It is a combination that is theirs alone.”

The Radiators - The Last WatusiThe Radiators - The Last Watusi (3 CDs) - These 3 CDs represent the best of each of the final 3 shows at Tips. The first night was an all acoustic affair mixing Rads originals with covers by Bob Dylan and Jesse Winchester. The last two discs represent a band on a mission, to go out in style and leave nothing on the table. The songs cover the entire 33 year career of the band and include fan favorites and a couple of lesser known Rad's gems. Altogether the set includes over 3 ½ hours of gritty down home Nawlins' rock n' roll that shows just how versatile the band was. Enjoy!!!
 

Disco BiscuitsThe Disco Biscuits - Otherwise Law Abiding Citizens CD - This album originally released in 2011, has finally found its way to the shelves of HGMN! Praised by many as the first studio Bisco CD in ages that actually sounds like the band they love. Some fans say its the best studio CD of their career. We agree that its great and if you've yet to add it to your collection - we can now hook you up!

Last Week:

Blue James BandBlue James Band - Give Me the Love or Give Me the Fight CD - Blue James Band’s third album, Give Me the love or Give Me the Fight, is a testament to the band's passion for imaginative, fun-filled, soul-soothing songs. The album sees the band as vibrant as ever, with their sunny roots/rock n' roll/reggae style fused throughout the album's ten tracks. Inventive musicality and lyrical style underlie Give Me the love or Give Me the Fight, allowing each track to take listeners on their own journey, while providing singularity that impresses like a fingerprint. The album is transcendent, yet accessible. Highlights include the reggae-infused "Not Ready For You" and the worldly "They Come and They Go."
 

Disco BiscuitsThe Disco Biscuits - Bisco Inferno 09/10 DVD - Recorded live at Red Rocks Ampitheatre, Morrison CO on May 30th, 2009 and May 29th, 2010.
 

 

 

 

 

 

Avett BrothersThe Avett Brothers - Carolina Jubilee CD - Reissue of the adored Folk/Roots band's 2003 album. A Carolina Jubilee has been extremely hard to find since the North Carolina trio's ascension to global success. The band is made up of two brothers, Scott Avett and Seth Avett, who play the banjo and guitar respectively, and Bob Crawford who plays the stand-up bass.

 

 

Jason Isbell liveJason Isbell & the 400 Unit - Live from Alabama CD - In August of 2012, Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit assembled in their home state of Alabama in front of a couple of sold-out concert halls to record their first live album, Live From Alabama. After years of hard touring, the critically-lauded band has gelled into a versatile rock and roll squad that is equally at ease performing Muscle Shoals soul to hardcore country to balls-out rock. Live From Alabama s tracklist mines some of Isbell s most popular songs and includes a pair of inspired covers in Neil Young s Like a Hurricane and Candi Staton s Heart on a String.

New Additions:

Peter Rowan - Legacy CDPeter Rowan Bluegrass Band - Legacy CD - Featuring: Peter Rowan, Jody Stecher, Keith Little, Paul Knight; and special guests: Del McCoury, Ricky Scaggs, Gillian Welch, Dave Rawlings. Produced by Alison Brown.

Since Rowan's tenure some 45 years ago with Bill Monroe, the Father of Bluegrass, roots music icon Peter Rowan has blazed trails across an unsurpassed range of musical territory. Now, with producer Alison Brown at the helm of his Compass Records debut, "Legacy," he revisits the style that launched his career for the first time in more than a dozen years.

Backed by his veteran touring Bluegrass Band and a handful of guests that includes fellow Monroe graduates Del McCoury, Ricky Skaggs, Tim O'Brien, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, Rowan delivers a hefty dose of inspired singing and traditionally-informed but fresh original songs that bear his unmistakable stamp. From the searing "The Family Demon" through the delicious "So Good" and the ominous drive of "Jailer Jailer," "Legacy" presents a compelling set that reaffirms Rowan's stature as an unsurpassed master of the music's ancient tones-and its modern forms.

Allman Brothers - Live at JazzFest 2010The Allman Brothers Band - Live at JazzFest 2010 (2 CDs) - The New Orleans show was played in front of a massive throng of 50,000+ appreciative fans, and the band finished their Spring Tour strong with a show full of memorable jams and top-notch musicianship. Keith Spera of The New Orleans Times-Picayune may have put it best in his review of the show.....

"Under a glorious blue sky Sunday at the New Orleans Jazz Fest, a vast crowd bore witness to one of the great American bands still working at an extremely high level.... I'm not sure what song it was; it doesn't matter...Oteil Burbridge's bass functioned like a bulldozer. The guitars of Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes chiseled away, pulled up, then bit into the rock once again. And Gregg Allman filled in and bound it all together with his deep-soul organ. When they reached a peak, they rode the sonic climax over the top, savored the moment, then let it go and started climbing once again."
