I’m pretty sure Jeff said this was “Charlie,” a theme composed by Georges Delerue from the Truffaut film Shoot The Piano Player. Well, he didn’t say all that; he said it was “Shoot The Piano Player: Charlie.” But anyway...

 

And thanks for not mentioning that I got sent to my room for saying “C” word. (Not that one.) ;)

That charity concert that Jeff played at is now up on YouTube. It was for Play It Forward: A Musical Celebration Of Intonation’s Creative Community. The backdrop is a beautiful backyard with some sweet lights. 
 

Jeff’s 9 song set appears over 3 segments: 30:00, 1:06:00, & 1:44:00. Note: if you click on this to watch it in the YouTube app, the times that I listed will be off by about 19 minutes, so Jeff will come on at 49:00 etc. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Does anyone remember which of the new songs that Jeff has debuted on TTS contains some recycled lyrics? I believe it was lyrics from An Empty Corner or maybe one of the Warm/Warmer songs. IIRC, Jeff and Spencer mentioned it after Jeff finished playing it and I think it was at least mentioned here.

Add me to the band of outcasts. Whilst I understand that JT can only write what he feels as affected by personal circumstances in the last few years and there have been some gems, what I most liked about Wilco was the fact that every album was so distinctively different in style. The last few Wilco/solo albums have been stuck in a bit of a whispery Dirge Rock (see what I did there?) vein and I have been itching for some energy. Everyone is getting on (me too) so raw youthful power might not be the easiest thing to tap into naturally anymore, but I feel I need something to lift me up and throw me around the room in these times and am hoping that Wilco can still provide it. 

 

"I want to make something loud and joyous, and a sonic event that will be glorious" - JT

Glad you enjoyed it! I have zero recollection of Jeff mentioning that this was being filmed for YouTube. It definitely sounded like a low key private event.
