As this is my first time on a JC, I just wanted the experienced cruisers to share what they think was the best show played on the first four installments. Or general greatest moments. Just to have even more to look forward to :wink:

Some days I don't remember my name, what shows I've been to, or where my keys are. This is not one of those days....

On JC1 - and I'm gonna need some help here veterans - the lineup was:

Gtr - Jamie McLean - DDBB
Gtr - Matt Grondin - Inca Maya (not booked on the boat, a passenger)
Bass - Rob Wasserman
Keys - ? Who was that on the organ? I've heard diff't answers over the years
Drums - Same thing. Who was behind the kit?

That was the core. The b-3 player played sax too if I remember correctly. Pretty sure E.T. threw down some trumpet on that one. And a few other horn players.

As for JC43, which I was not able to go on, here are the notes that came with the show I downloaded:

Late night jam featuring: Kai Eckhardt (Garaj Mahal) - Bass Fareed Haque (Garaj Mahal) - Keys!! John Staten (K.D. Tiny Universe) - Drums Suke Cerulo (Schleigho) - Guitar Two tracks of 100% improv. Schleigho didn't even play on the cruise but Suke was there and sat in using Krazno's gear and tore it up big time. Not sure of the recording set-up other than its obviously an audience and it was recorded by Jason Gould.

And for JC4 - No - no one remembers. The lineup was CONSTANTLY evolving. Stanton Moore would stand up and keep one hand going on the snare and slide to the right while John Staten would pick up the beat and slide in from the right. There might be 12 people on stage when you close your eyes and start to groove and when you open them again there are 14 people and 6 of em are different. I saw some INCREDIBLE moments in that room on JC4. Eric Krasno playing the living hell out of a bass was a great moment. Ron Johnson literally runnnig to the jam room with his bass on his back and a huge smile on his face and EAGER to jump in the jam is my memory that just crystallizes that whole experience.

The musicians are as excited about that room as any of the fans are.

Just make sure the Antibalas bass player doesn't get in there again! :twisted:

Was this the jam in the disco that essentially was an impomptu jam that set the foundation for the jamroom concept?

This is what I have in my text file:

Rob Wasserman (bass)
Jamie McLean (guitar DD Brass Band)
Terrence Higgins (drums DD Brass Band)
Jasen keys(Tishamingo)
Eric Crittenden (sax,keys and vocals)
Matt Grondin (guitar)

The one and only.

I remember watching you set up your mics! I had wandered in there by accident and almost tripped over the B-3 when I did. Then all of a sudden, music started and in about 20 minutes not only had everyone I knew from Colorado and Florida wandered in, the place was packed and rockin hard.

He could have. Wouldn't be the first time I missed noting a guest in a setlist ;)

I am sure about the other guys though. That guy Eric Crittenden was a passanger if I remember correctly.
