This January, Jam Cruise 15 set sail, with some of the biggest names in live music aboard, collaborating, and throwing down. While Vulfpeck was originally slated to perform on the boat, when a scheduling change forced the band to back out, Vermont’s Twiddle was tagged in. As is the Jam Cruise way, during Twiddle’s set on January 21st, the group invited guitarist Al Schnier from moe. to join the quartet during a rendition of their feel-good number “Mamunes The Faun.”moe. & Members of Turkuaz Perform “Naive Melody” On Jam Cruise [Pro-Shot Video]Across the fourteen-minute rendition, the band moves into a jazzy, laid-back, and spacious jam segment, marking a stark contrast from the upbeat chorus of the song. During this jam, the group almost moves into electronic-inspired sounds carried by Ryan Dempsey behind the keys. Eventually, this spacey section builds with urgency to a quick and frenetic peak featuring dueling guitars from Schnier and Twiddle’s resident guitarist Mihali Savoulidis before moving back into the song’s triumphant and lighthearted chorus.Exclusive Videos From moe.
