    Not sure how many of you have heard this... I'm assuming a lot! Anyways, it's new to me, so I wanted to share.

    I knew there was a connection between the members of The Band and Jaco through Joni Mitchell, but to actually hear them play together is something else.

    Rick calls Jaco up to the stage at around 2:10:20, referring to him as his favourite bassist! High praise coming from one of the greats (and perhaps explains Danko's affinity for a fretless!).

    It reminds me how versatile of a musician Danko is... there's a tape out there somewhere of him and Levon Helm playing with Lenny Breau, and playing some great jazz they were.
