March 26 - "American Myth" Live At Sweetwater Music Hall Marking the halfway point in his six-night residency at Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley, California, on Sunday singer-songwriter Jackie Greene and his band offered a complete performance of the 2006 album American Myth. The concert followed complete renditions of Greene’s 2002 album Gone Wanderin’on Friday night and 2004’s Sweet Somewhere Boundon Saturday.
The pre-announced album-cover shows have featured Greene backed by his band composed of Nathan Dale on guitar, Fitz Harris on drums, Jon Cornell on bass and Jason Crosby on keyboards and fiddle. The first set Sunday opened with an intro that led to the album (and show) opening “Hollywood.” The set progressed with “So Hard To Find My Way,” “Just As Well, “ “I’m So Gone” and the rest of the songs making up the 14-track LP. “Marigold” served as the first set closer wrapping up the performance of American Myth.
The second set started with “Break Mama Break” and then rolled through covers including The Rolling Stones’ “Brown Sugar,” The Beatles’ “Yer Blues,” The Band’s “Look Out Cleveland” (with some “Manteca” at the end) and Bob Dylan’s “Isis.” Dale and Greene capped the night with a stripped down offering of “Brokedown Emotion.” The residency resumes on Thursday when Greene is yet again expected to cover one of his albums.
