Jackson Browne called Jonathan Wilson "the jam
king," and last night Browne was one of several
major artists to join the Los Angeles folk-rocker
at the Troubadour for a "goodwill jam-a-thon."
Taking turns onstage were the Grateful Dead's Bob
Weir, ELO's Jeff Lynne and fellow Heartbreakers
Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench, together billed
as the Merry Minstrel Musical Circus.
"I always loved this room," Campbell said of the
old club early in the four-hour show, calling the
gathering of musicians "a lot of people playing
together that always wanted to play together."
A benefit concert for Little Kids Rock (which
supplies music and instruments to U.S. schools)
and the Tazzy Animal Rescue Fund, the room was
packed wall-to-wall as Campbell stepped onto the
small club stage. Bearded and wearing a fringe
jacket, Campbell played a short set of thumping
blues and rock with his band the Dirty Knobs. He
led a sticky, bluesy take on J.J. Cale's
"Humdinger" and Campbell's own "I Wanna Blow Up
My Stereo," delivered like a Heartbreakers song
with a Keith Moon beat. There was a fittingly
jagged reading of John Lennon's "Working Class
Hero," which flowed into the rich melody of the
Beatles' "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away."
Soon after Wilson - who is credited with helping
revive the Laurel Canyon music scene - and his
four-piece band ripped into some Crazy Horse-like
brooding on his "Valley of the Silver Moon," a
cosmic Seventies-style folk-rocker. Campbell
joined them for a spectral version of George
Harrison's "Isn't It a Pity," which echoed Pink
Floyd's "Wish You Were Here" until the band
kicked into a heavier beat.
Campbell also played with the band on Cale's
"Call Me the Breeze" (famously recorded by Lynyrd
Skynyrd) and Lennon's "Well Well Well," as he and
Wilson traded jagged, searing guitar lines. Weir
stretched out for several minutes of improv with
the band and also led the Dead's "West L.A.
Fadeaway" and "Truckin'," with four guitars
onstage in epic twang.
Jeff Lynne came out for a two-song set of
"something different," reaching back to some
beloved early rock songs, including a spirited
recreation of Del Shannon's 1961 hit "Runaway,"
with Tench on an authentic squealing organ solo.
Browne called Lynne's appearance a "visitation,"
and the Electric Light Orchestra leader and
producer followed up with Chuck Berry's "Roll
Over Beethoven," an early hit for his ELO.
Browne spoke warmly about his days at the club
four decades earlier and began with a bittersweet
"These Days," strumming acoustic guitar to
Wilson's electric. Wilson called the early Browne
composition "one of the best songs ever written."
Later, Browne performed Warren Zevon's "Lawyers,
Guns and Money" and what he called "a real
Troubadour song" - "Take It Easy," a hit for the
Eagles and an anthem from that band's earliest
days playing the club, which erupted last night
with overlapping guitars and charged vocals,
helping take the night's jam session into the
early morning hours.
