This performance was recorded in May 2012, just a few months before bassist Lee Dorman passed away. He was found in December of 2012 in his car, he died of natural causes likely on his way to a doctor’s appointment. He was 70 years old. I personally love the fact that even after all the years between the original recording and this performance, the men could still bring their best to this piece, to an appreciative audience.
Enjoy these men in their final performance together, as the effortlessly lay down “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida” one last time.
