Music that moves us.

R.I.P. — Jerry Garcia (1942-1995)

It’s no secret around here that Jerry Garcia has probably influenced my musical tastes more than any other musician. His talent, musicianship, demeanor, spirit and legacy are America personified and are uniquely his. From his virtuosity on the banjo, pedal steel, acoustic and electric guitar, his piano tinkling, etc., Jerry always had a vision for his music and usually got what he wanted. It’s hard to believe he’s been gone for 15 years, as he loomed so large in mine and many others’ musical universe at the time of his passing in 1995. Jer’, I think about you and/or your music everyday. Thanks for joy, wit, wisdom and love you gave through your music.
