Here's a rare treat, a concert by the last band featuring Jerry Garcia with Merl Saunders, Reconstruction . This band was founded by bassist John Kahn with Merl, and Garcia participated when he was available. This is the only band I'm aware of where Jerry was more of a side man than the main attraction. This concert from Rancho Nicasio in San Rafael was recorded by KPFA-FM in Berkeley in March 1979, and may or may not have been broadcast at that time or a later date. Reconstruction: John Kahn...

Growing up in the 1930's and 40's in New York City, how could Walter Seldon not be a Jazz lover? It was the soundtrack of the city, from Blues to Bebop and beyond. In clubs, at concerts, and on the radio, he listened...and he collected as much of that great music as he could. Though he'd missed the Dixieland Golden Age of 1920's Harlem, it was one of his favorite genres.
