Reed Mathis - Part 2
While many touring musicians found the pandemic a great time to chill out, spend time with family and re-charge, Reed Mathis was busy as we’ve already in part 1 of our interview with him. In part two we explore all the projects he worked on, including a solo album and a great experience in Hawaii with Billy & The Kids for Bill Kreutmann’s birthday.

Reed Mathis - Part 1
Winterwood out now on Royal Potato Records and available wherever you stream music, is one of the latest releases from Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey. What’s interesting though, is this album was buried and not even thought of since 2008. It’s an interesting story how this album and an additional 4 live albums have come to life. In fact, one could argue that if it weren’t for the global pandemic of the past year and a half, they may not have ever seen the light of day. I caught up with Reed Mathis, JFJO’s original bassist to talk about these latest releases, his tenure in the band and more. The conversation started when I asked Reed to remind us about the history of the band who blended all kinds of genres and styles to make very original music since they started in the late 90s.

The Infamous Stringdusters
It’s not terribly shocking that a band like the Infamous Stringdusters would go back to their roots, and put together a compilation of Bill Monroe tunes. I get it, he’s the founder of Bluegrass, and they are part of the group that is carrying the torch forward. What is confusing though, is that Monroe was a mandolin player, and the Dusters are without a mandolin player, opting for other cool instruments like the dobro and fiddle. I mean being a quintet is limiting. At any rate, a Tribute to Bill Monroe is filled with 7 great tunes, and I for one hardly miss the mandolin. I caught up with a busy Andy Falco, the Dusters guitar player and vocalist, to get a better understanding about this project. The conversation started when I discussed the idea that bluegrass has always been steeped in cover songs and the evolution of traditional songs along the way.

The High Hawks
I first heard about the High Hawks, an all-star Americana outfit consisting of players from mostly the jamgrass scene from Chad Staehly of Hard Working Americans and Great American Taxi when I talked to him a few months back about the John Hartford tribute record, and the band’s contribution of Waugh Paugh. The band includes, Vince Herman (Leftover Salmon), Tim Carbone (Railroad Earth), Chad Staehly (Hard Working Americans), Adam Greuel (Horseshoes & Hand Grenades), Brian Adams (DeadPhish Orchestra), and Will Trask (Great American Taxi). Together, the band blends the sounds each member is known for and offer up a fresh take with original tunes and one cover on their debut release due out June 11th on LoHi records. I caught up with Tim Carbone and Chad Staehly to talk about the release and the band. The conversation started when I mentioned to the guys that our studio is about 5 miles away from where Ronnie Hawkins and The Hawks used to play. That band, became “The Band”, who sort of invented Americana music. I suggested there were some similarities at least in sound between the band The Hawks became and the High Hawks which amused Tim Carbone… First Song: 00:14: Waugh Paugh Interview Begins: 04:48 Extro Song: 48:53: Heroes & HighwaysSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Marcus Rezak is a classic rock n' roll cowboy. A man out on the plains, a gunslinger, well in this case, guitar slinger, with dreams, ambitions, and tons of talent. You know his name because of all the guest appearances he does on the Jam Band scene most notably with Umphrey's McGee. Aside from being an artist-at-large, Rezak also fronts Shred is Dead a Grateful Dead tribute band, and is a member of Digital Tape Machine and many other little bands. He does however take time to carve out solo records, as he did in 2018 with "Gateway to the Galaxy". He just released his sophomore follow up to that record, a 4 song, 30 minute EP "Truth in Sound" which absolutely needs to be heard. I caught up with Marcus who always seems to be on the road doing something. Our conversation started, when I asked how Truth in Sound featuring members of the Trey Anastasio Band came to be....

The Magic Beans
Magic Beans are a different kind of modern jam band. Aside from blending funk, soul and electronica, they even blend bluegrass into the mix. They recently released Slice of Life, a 14 track double record which gives a very clear audio indication of who this band is. The record was made over the pandemic during the slow down of touring. I sat down with guitarist Scott Hachey to discuss the new album and our conversation started when I asked how excited the band was about this new material… First Song: 00:14: Sharon is Karen Interview Begins: 03:47 Extro Song: 23:38: Footprints in the RainSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

On the surface Russ Lawton and Ray Paczkowski are two great musicians who are known mostly as the drummer and keyboard players for the Trey Anastasio Band. And though that has been the case for the better part of the past two decades, these two have also been active in their own project Soule Monde. This funk jazz outfit have now released 4 albums. I caught up with the duo to talk about Soule Monde and we got into a whole bunch is things. Since we had these guys on back in July to talk about their project LaMP that includes Scott Metzger, I wondered if there new record Mimi Digs It was already in the works...
