My Morning Jacket...

Has anybody seen Ray LaMontagne w/ MMJ backing him up yet? I've got tickets for Labor Day weekend & am looking forward to the show. Warming up for this one with 2 Wilco shows, haha. Luckily I have a day to recover before Ray.

I would have liked to make these Red Rocks shows, but I got shut out for tix.  I mean literally, I got ZERO tickets even offered and I tried ALL the presales and onsales and all that shit when they went on sale.

 

Looks like they played well and Jim looks really healthy from photos I saw, he lost a bunch of weight.  I'm glad they did these shows, but are they really back?  Seems more like a handful of reunion shows than the band really being a permanent full time band again.  I am not holding out hope they will fully return with MMJ as the full time main gig of all the players.  I hope that happens, but its not looking that way to me.  i hope I'm wrong and this is just the teaser to a coming end of the hiatus back to full time touring.  I haven't seen them since frickin' 2015!

Reviving this thread to ask a question (that it looks like Shug was asking almost a year ago):

 

Anyone get the feeling that Jim has lost a lot of interest in MMJ over the last couple years?

ya. he still brings it live from what i can tell but you can pretty much tell that MMJ isn't his primary focus anymore. i saw the rest of the band back Ray LaMontagne & they were excellent. way more interesting than Ray himself. maybe the band & Jim just needed a break from the grind. we'll hope for the best!

I listened to the webcast premiere of the album tonight. I really enjoyed the Waterfall 2 - very psychedelic overall. Jim's singing is sounding a lot more akin to the earlier records, as far as the tone and production (to me it's a lot less of the newer distorted vocal sound and a lot more clear, high, reverb-y and ethereal sounding - he really nails the soul sound on some of the tracks here too). I loved the arrangements, felt like a lot of new territory here but also some of the familiar rock n' roll elements. I'm stoked to hear it again when it's out tomorrow.

It's not exactly the same as the first edition but it reminds me of my overall impression of the older one: it's kind of grand, and dense. Sometimes there's huge payoffs, sometimes it kind of wanders, but it's always worth a listen.

Not only is Water Fall II out (and pretty great), they've already recently finished recording a proper new album and were chomping at the bit to hit the road again. How wrong I was!
