Editor's comment
This is a Grateful Dead show not to be missed. Branford Marsalis sat in with the Grateful Dead a handful of times. This is the first and perhaps the best. I saw the new years eve performance live when Bruce Hornsby was in the band, which was spectacular too. Anyway, Grateful Dead with Branford, top shelf Grateful Dead. 

I've had a chance to spin the and haven't had a chance to write a review. The hold up is that I cannot get the Garcialive Vol. 4 and other Garcia band releases with Keith Godchaux in the line-up out of my CD player. 

I will say a few quick things about my impression of the release. 
*Great, great sound.
*Phil - The saying goes when Phil is one the band cooks. That is the theme of this concert, even before Branford shows up.
*Banford really adds great melody.
*Nearly all of the tracks Branford plays on rates them as among the best renditions of the songs within the era of the recordings. 
*Jerry's voice in 1989 is not with the delivery, range and sweetness as his singing during the 1970's. 

From the Grateful Dead website

Wake Up To Find Out is the official debut of one of the most sought-after shows in the Dead canon: the March 29, 1990 show at Nassau Coliseum, where Grammy®-winning saxophonist Marsalis sat in with the group. The entire second set is one continuous highlight, especially the breathtaking version of “Dark Star.” Blair Jackson captures the moment, writing that, “Of all the guest musicians who shared the Dead’s stage through the years—and they were many and varied—none embodied both the Dead’s adventurous, questing spirit and their obsession with beautiful melodies and accessible structures quite like Branford did.” Their performance of “Eyes Of The World” appeared on the 1990 live collection Without A Net, but the entire collaboration has not surfaced officially until now.

“When I agreed to sit in with the Dead in 1990, I didn't know what to expect, aurally or visually,” says Marsalis. “What I experienced was what I remembered music to be in my younger years, something that I'd felt was lost long ago. Process over product. No set lists, light shows and costumes required, but music first. It's an experience I will always remember with great fondness.”

Digital downloads will be made available on release date.
