PREMIERE: Watch Jazz Is PHSH Perform “Meat” With Special Guest Tom Marshall

first_imgInstrumental Phish tribute outfit, Jazz Is PHSH, led by The Chase Brothers—also known as Matt Chase and Adam Chase—recruits the best of the best for their all-instrumental take on the beloved Vermont jam band. Not only does Jazz Is PHSH incorporate unique compositional elements into Phish’s music, but they also have gotten to share their work with members of Phish and their longtime cohorts.Last December, the Chase Brothers recruited Cory Baker (bass), Carl “Gearz” Gerhard (trumpet), Maison Guidry (drums), Jay Rodriquez (tenor sax), and Josh Thomas (keys) for a special incarnation of Jazz Is PHSH at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, PA. Opening with “Tweezer Reprise”, the band worked through Phish heavy-hitters “Carini”, “Ghost”, and “Maze” throughout the first set, before laying down a funky “Cars Trucks Buses” to bring the fiery first set to a close.After opening the second set with a massive “Tweezer” > “Drums”, Jazz Is PHSH had a special treat in store for the intimate crowd at World Cafe Live. Following “46 Days”, Jazz Is PHSH invited longtime Phish songwriter/lyricist Tom Marshall up to assist with vocals on “Meat”, which was written by Anastasio, Jon Fishman, Mike Gordon, Page McConnell, and Marshall.Today, Live for Live Music is excited to premiere a video of Jazz Is PHSH’s “Meat” featuring Tom Marshall on vocals, which was shot by Philly Philms for We’ve Got It Simple. The funky tune off The Story of the Ghost got the special treatment on December 7th, 2017, with double drums and a tenacious horn section, taking their time with the natural pauses in “Meat”, before crashing back into their jazzy take on the Phish favorite.As Adam Chase explained to Live for Live Music in a statement,Having Tom join us for Meat was actually a spur of the moment idea that came essentially the day of the show.  We had met Tom when he came to See Jazz is Phsh is Asbury Park a couple years ago and then when we did the Under The Scales Interview together we really hit it off and have become friends since.  When he let me know he was coming to the World Cafe show I jokingly suggested having him up for Meat.  It was a joke since we are an instrumental band but after laughing about pulling a “random fan” out of the audience and having them actually sing the lyrics to Meat as we backed the singer- we thought it was too good an idea to pass up.Watch video of Jazz Is PHSH’s “Meat” featuring Tom Marshall on vocals, below. For more information on Jazz Is PHSH and their upcoming tour dates, head to their website.Jazz Is PHSH featuring Tom Marshall–”Meat”Setlist: Jazz Is PHSH | World Cafe Live | Philadelphia, PA | 12/7/2017Set One: Tweezer Reprise, Carini, Brother, Ghost, Maze, Lawn Boy, Cars Trucks BusesSet Two: Tweezer > Drums, NICU, 46 Days, *Meat, Bathtub Gin, Stash, MagillaEncore: Camel Walk* with Tom Marshalllast_img
