Grateful Dead songs covered by a saxophone artist? It's rare, but it's also not the first time. Dave McMurray is releasing his album Grateful Deadication next month for Blue Note Records. On it, he's reimagining the songs of Jerry and the gang. Fans can get a sneak peek by watching the video of his cover of Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter’s “Loser,” which even guest stars Bob Weir!
The album will feature a range of stylings, from rock and pop to soul and jazz. It all started when McMurray played alongside The Wolf Bros. I'm excited to hear it and see how McMurray's work sounds!
