Joe Gallant's Illuminati Orchestra
The Grateful Dead's most intriguing orchestrator celebrates today's 35th anniversary of Terrapin Station, the band's heady side-length suite, with a rare appearance by Gallant's 18-piece ensemble. A fine bassist (and former pornography instructor), Gallant has a knack for entwining both the muscle and sparkle of the Dead's more carefully wrought tunes. Expect non-Terrapin gems like "Unbroken Chain" to fill out the set.
