Music For the First Monday In October

In the USA, the first Monday in October is the start of the Supreme Court’s session, which for some reason had me thinking tonight about the Georgia band The Supreme Court, which featured the legendary guitarist Glenn Phillips and also Jeff Calder of the Swimming Pool Q’s. I don’t think it was the primary band for any of the members even when the group was performing fequently, as Phillips has a long string of indie guitar albums and Calder, of course, has his own main gig.

Had the chance to see them live a few times back in my collegiate days and they were always a blast of improvisational musical mayhem, pulling out everything from blues/jazz fusion to classic rock covers. Check out a more recent clip below, of Calder and Phillips running through a rocking take of “Route 66” with guest guitarist Peter Stroud of Sheryl Crow’s band.
