That NYE show is GREAT. It's pretty exciting to hear Phil and Bob sounding so good. Very dynamic outfit (the band not the clothes).
John K is perfect in this spot.. Enough like Jerry in tone, style and voice to make you feel very comfortable, but it doesn't sound like a parody.
I think it sounds much better than the Warren Haynes, Larry Campbell, Jimmy Herring, John Scofield, et al versions. I might add that I'm a big fan of a couple of those guys and admire them all, but they never sounded "right" to me in "the dead environment".
I like this!
Edited to add: It's almost like John got called up from the Pawtucket Red Sox to the Boston Red Sox.
