    reCAP :: The Word w/ Kung Fu :: 2014.05.01

    Magic Happens! That’s the only way to explain the feeling one gets listening to musicians of exceptional talent perform live. That was what was felt when The Word, John Medeski (organ), Robert Randolph (pedal steel guitar), brothers Cody (drums) and Luther Dickinson (guitars) and Chris Chew (bass) first toured in the early 2000s, the first time anyone had heard Randolph play outside of churches.

Pete Shapiro’s deal with Phil Lesh has shown 2014 will not be labeled as an exception.
