Review: Soulive (Syracuse, 10.16.09)

I was fortunate enough to get a guestlisted +1 for my girlfriend and I (thanks Kras). The show took place at one of my new favorite local Upstate New York venues; The Westcott Theatre. (Jambase article on The Westcott)This show was a special occasion; Soulive was playing as the Trio. The Trio is by far my favorite incarnation of the band. Song after song was in your face driving Jazz/Funk. Towards the end of the set, they brought out the Shady Horns for some awesome jams. Including one of my favorite portions of the show; where the horn section did a very solid duet. closing out the show they brought out Nigel Hall, which converted the show to a James Brown style "call & response" situation. For me; it's all about the Trio.
