Branford Marsalis Talks About Appreciating The Grateful Dead In Newly-Recovered 1996 Interview

first_imgBeloved saxophonist Branford Marsalis famously sat in with the Grateful Dead at the Nassau Coliseum in 1990, producing one of the most iconic performance of the Dead’s thirty-year career. While many have heard the performance, including the infamous “Eyes of the World,” few have heard Marsalis’s thoughts on the collaboration.Fortunately, thanks to YouTube user Josh Daniel, we have footage to share from a great interview with Marsalis in 1996. Held shortly after the death of Jerry Garcia, the interview talks about Marsalis’s work with the group, but dives into numerous topics about the iconic band. It’s interesting to hear Marsalis’s thoughts on how the band truly earned their audience with rigorous touring, how Dead shows were all about the music, and how open-minded the Grateful Dead and their fans were about music itself.You can enjoy this fantastic interview with Marsalis, below.Of course, an article about Marsalis wouldn’t be complete without full audio from the 3/29/90 Nassau Coliseum show.

Six former Trojans compete in NFL Scouting Combine

first_imgAs is the case most years, USC football will be well represented not only when draft day comes in late April, but also this weekend at the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.Former running back Ronald Jones is participating in the combine. Photo by Emily Smith | Daily TrojanAfter sending eight athletes to the NFL Combine last year, USC will have six former players working out in front of scouts through the weekend at Lucas Oil Stadium. Included among those in attendance are quarterback Sam Darnold, wide receivers Steven Mitchell Jr. and Deontay Burnett, running back Ronald Jones II, linebacker Uchenna Nwosu and defensive lineman Rasheem Green.Like when he was playing in cardinal and gold, Darnold will certainly command most of the attention out of the Trojan draft prospects this weekend, if not the entire group of prospects working out in Indianapolis. In fact, he has already made headlines without performing a single workout due to his announcement Tuesday that he would not be throwing throughout the weekend.Although all the other top quarterback prospects such as Wyoming’s Josh Allen, UCLA’s Josh Rosen and former Oklahoma Sooner Baker Mayfield will be throwing in this year’s combine, there is precedent for Darnold’s decision. In 2014, both Teddy Bridgewater and Johnny Manziel elected to wait, as Darnold is, until their pro day workout to throw passes in front of scouts. Clearly, it didn’t hurt their draft stock too drastically as both would go on to be first-round picks in the ensuing draft.Beyond the 2017 Rose Bowl MVP, the balance of the USC contingency will have a lot to prove in front of the NFL scouts this weekend.  According to his most recent mock draft, Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller has Darnold as his top pick while the rest of the Trojan combine invitees are listed as being drafted outside of the first round.Jones II, the Pac-12’s second leading rusher from this past season, is projected to go off the board early in the second round while Nwosu, a USC defensive captain who tied for 10th in the FBS in sacks, is expected to hear his name called later in the second round. Furthermore, co-sacks leader Green is projected to be an early third-round pick in Miller’s projections.No two players have as much to prove heading into this weekend as Trojan wideouts Burnett and  Mitchell Jr., as they are expected to be fifth-round and undrafted prospects, respectively.  Putting up an impressive stat-line of 86 catches for 1,114 yards and nine scores in 2017, Burnett finished the season in the top three among Pac-12 receivers and well within the top-20 nationally.For Mitchell Jr., he will have to work hard to convince scouts that a track record of injury will not impact his NFL value. Never topping 650 yards in any of his four seasons at Southern Cal, Mitchell Jr. suffered a major knee injury in his 2016 campaign that cut his season short at seven games and proved to limit his snaps at times this past season.A year ago, USC similarly sent two receivers to the scouting combine: Juju Smith-Schuster and Darreus Rogers. The former was selected in the second round while the latter ended up not being drafted.Jones II will work out on Friday while Darnold, Mitchell Jr. and Burnett will perform on Saturday, and Green and Nwosu will check in on Sunday.last_img read more

Hearts took control of the latte bit of the first half without creating any clear cut chances. The Phobians however took the lead Dauda who chased down a flicked header to beat Fatau Dauda at his near post. Cosmos got the second minutes later as he scored a fortuitous header from a Mustapha Essuman cross. Ashantigold pulled one back through captain Awudu Nafiu but it only proved to be a consolation. More misery for Ashantigold as Hearts are on a high ahead of their super 2 clash against Kotoko.Wa All Stars consolidated their lead at the top of the league with a 2-0 win over Inter Allies at the Wa Park. Striker Richard Arthur and Emmanuel Ocran scored late into the second half to maintain the 2 point lead at the top of the table for the Wa side.Striker Richard Arthur reacted to a Maxwell Baako cross from the right with an incisive header midway through the second-half before Emmanuel Ocran sealed victory for the home side in stoppage-time finishing a brilliant team move. Inter Allies goalkeeper Osei Kwame produced a string of impressive saves to deny a barrage of All Stars attacks to keep Herbert Addo’s men in the game. Aduana Stars enjoyed back to back win for the first time in the league as they recorded a resounding 3-0 victory over Medeama.Striker Yahaya Mohammed bagged a brace with a goal in each half before Elvis Opoku’s late strike put the icing on the cake to confirm a good week for the Dormaa side.The Tarkwa side failed to yet again replicate their impressive CAF confederation cup form as they appeared in sixes and sevens for the entire duration of the game.Yahaya Mohammed opened the scoring after collecting a good cross from Zakaria Mumuni to power home a strike before he doubled his tally early into the second half.. Elvis Opoku converted the third goal with couple of minutes to end proceedings.Liberty Professionals won their first game away from home after a Bernard Arthur strike on the 90th minute condemned Hasaacas to a defeat. Hasaacas started the game but fluffed their chances which seemed to give their guests more confidence.Bernard Arthurs secured all three points for the home side with a well taken strike on the 90th minute of the game which left Hasaacas with little or no time to respond. Berekum Chelsea maintained their 100% home record with a convincing 3-0 victory over Dreams FC. A brace from top scorer Saddick Adams and one from Seth Appiah ensured all three points for the hosts. The defeat comes as a hammer blow for Dreams who were looking to recover from their home defeat against Kotoko. Chelsea took the lead through Seth Appiah just on the brink of halftime. Saddick Adams doubled the lead for Chelsea in the second half before he rounded up the game with an expertly converted free kick.WAFA also maintained their unbeaten home record with a 2-0 win over Ebusua Dwarfs in Sogakope without leading scorer Samuel Tetteh Charles as  Boateng and Ibrahim Tanko scored in each half to ensure maximum points for the academy side. Boateng opened the scoring with a neat finish from close range before Ibrahim Tanko put the final nail in  the coffin of a Dwarfs after breaking the offside trap of their guests.Techiman City responded to their 2-1 defeat at the hands of Techiman City with a comfortable 2-0 win over Bechem United.Techiman city totally dominated both halves and goals in each half from Issaka Ibrahim and Isaac Baah ensured the Techiman side remain unbeaten at home Issaka Ibrahim picked his spot well in the 11th minute to slot home the opening goal for Techiman City before Isaac Baah doubled the lead with a composed finish to extend Techiman city impressive run against their Brong Ahafo rivals.
