Explorations into the Music of the Grateful Dead
JAZZ IS DEAD embarks from the compass point
of GARCIA and Co.’s most complex and audacious material,
culled from many periods of their storied history. From
there, the musical heading is unknown… each performance
promising inspired improvisation and new discovery, like

“Blues For Allah”. The music is
crafted by an all-star line-up including JEFF SIPE, ROD
MORGENSTEIN, T LAVITZ, DAVID LIVOLSI and JEFF PEVAR. Special

Dregs and its successor, The Dregs. He’s also toured
and recorded with Widespread Panic, Jefferson Starship,
The Bluesbusters, Scott Henderson and Journey’s drummer
Steve Smith, among others.
Guitarist JEFF PEVAR is one of the tops
in his field, having played and toured with such distinguished
artists like David Crosby, Graham Nash, Ray Charles and
Phil Lesh and Friends.
Bassist DAVE LIVOLSI has performance with
such musical greats as John Scofield and jazz/funk supergroup
