CD REVIEW: Trey Anastasio Band "TAB At The TAB"

The Phish frontman is one of the premier guitarists of this generation, and on his newest live release, with his other band in tow, he showcases some of his finest and most understated grooves. New compositions, classic Trey tracks, and cover songs are all included during this set from the Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA. They lead off with "Money, Love, And Change" and kick out a jam that takes this Trey original to the next level, proving that Phish isn't the only way that Anastasio can showcase his excellence. "Sand" and "Windora Bug" are both killer performances as well, showing off his jam session skills as well as a bit of his love of reggae. They close out the set with a cover of the Led Zeppelin song "Black Dog" bridging the worlds of modern jam rock and heavy classic rock like never before. Trey Anastasio, whether with Phish, with TAB, or all by himself, is a master of the guitar, and during live performances like this one you get to hear just how incredible he is.
