Almost exactly one year ago, Tony Furtado and his band recorded their live set at Mississippi Studios, and now that live recording is out: The aptly titled Live at Mississippi Studios CD/DVD sees banjoist and slide guitarist Furtado leading a remarkably capable band through ambitious performances of American folk- and roots-influenced music. While there is definitely some extended jamming, it never feels bloated or indulgent, and Furtado—one of the city's unsung but most capable musicians—always puts the music ahead of his formidable chops, never simply allowing himself or his band to showboat. The real question is, though: Will tonight's set also be recorded? And will it see a release a year later, and will Furtado and crew then play a release show for that live recording, and will that set then also be recorded? And so on—the mind boggles. NED LANNAMANN
