The Grateful Dead perform Black Throated Wind with Branford Marsalis and Bruce Hornsby

I don't know what the story is with this video...it was obviously shot with just one camera (but they clearly got their audio from the soundboard), focused mainly on Bobby.  The camera never actually shows the drummers, Phil, or Bruce. Hornsby is easy to find in the mix...listen for the Steinway; Vince Welnick was playing the other keys. Branford, unlike, some of his other Dead performances over the years, was very understated on this tune with just his sporadic and most tasty fills.
