introducing All Our Dark
Tomorrows, Bruce said
that a number of interviewers were having trouble with the title
of the new CD. "They say something like, 'And Here's Bruce Cockburn
with his new CD You've Never Seen Anything,' obviously missing the
subtlety of the last word."
Julie Wolf did a great job improvising in a difficult set. Her strong back-up vocals especially make me wish for future collaborations... perhaps on the next Cockburn CD!
John Hardy adds:
Shortly after 8pm, the crowd began chants of "Bruuuuce, Bruuuuce." When he came out on stage he received a standing ovation. He received several more as the show went on.
He didn't say much during the show. After All Our Dark Tomorrows someone yelled "Rumsfield Sucks!" and Bruce said, "...among other things." He introduced Burn by saying something about how he was digging deep into precambrian strata where there were fossils of aliens and such.
Bruce gave the keyboard player a prominent role. He stepped back for her extended solos on Mighty Trucks Of Midnight and To Raise The Morning Star, on which Bruce also did some psychedelic jamming.
Another great show — well structured, well played, and well received.
