let it swing let it swing let it swing

sounds good mary! well, apart from the unnecessary argument on there!!!!
i must track that down.
Bill really seems to have found a new inspiration. i'm so happy for him. whenever you see or read an interview with him these last few years he positively bubbles with enthusiasm. it's quite infectious. was watching again his performance with String Cheese back in 2002 at the Fillmore in Denver, Colorado. his eyes were lit up with the joy of playing. (could've been something else, of course...!!!).
definitely the right move for him to Hawaii; a wonderful calming effect is in evidence. the music really seems to flow through him once again. magical.
and great news about BK3 reuniting for Jungle Jam. just wish i could see it.

well somewhere in my house

there is one from around March of '83 with a Don't Let Go that goes on for about 20 minutes at the Keystone Berkeley, that is unfortunately marred by the taper getting into a shouting match with somebody at one of the hottest moments. But I have no idea where. I was just talking to my original source on FB this morning, maybe he knows.

oceanic swell

absolutely mary!
chemistry blossomed during the "Garcia" album, just Jerry and Bill, no doubt.
such atmosphere on that record. relaxed and happenin'!
are there any tapes of that '80's tenure circulating?

yeah

I've always thought Bill was a sweetie. I particularly loved the interlude in the early '80s when he was drumming with the Jerry Band. It was a short interlude, maybe just one or two gigs, but great shows. Great chemistry.

hey mike

my pleasure!
i was rather hoping this topic would be tapped into by Heads sharing their drumming stories, parking lot circles and musical epiphanies.
but seems to be mainly me posting vibrations that move the air around myself.
i'll keep posting nonetheless.
if i reach one it's successful in my eyes!

jonapi, thanks for keeping the beat alive and for expanding my vocabulary by at least one new word today. I just watched the clip of Mickey discussing the Apocalypse Now sessions, where I learned that the instrument I always knew as the Beam has another name and a long history, so thanks again for sharing this fascinating and educational video.
