We’ve been seeing a lot of The Mattson 2 recently, and its something I’ve been very excited about. I’ve been a fan of theirs for years now, and its about time they start to get some more recognition. Earlier this year they released the collaborative and highly underrated album with Chaz Bear (aka Toro y Moi) titled Star Stuff¬†(via Company Records) and have been out on the road in support of it ever since its release.

The twin duo of Jared & Johnathan returned back to NYC to play not one, but two sets at Baby’s All Right with the second set being something truly special. The duo debuted their masterful cover of the landmark John Coltrane album, A Love Supreme and we were there to take the whole thing in.

The duo kicked right into their set and played A Love Supreme in full without any real pauses. If you haven’t heard the album before, I’d suggest jumping on listening to that ASAP as it truly is one of the all time great jazz albums from one of the pioneers in jazz music. The Mattson’s twist on the cover was adding subtle elements of their trademark psychedelic infused jazz-rock sound, but just enough to where it wasn’t overwhelming, making it a perfect balance of their style and Coltrane’s.

Along with the set of covers, the Mattson’s also threw in a small set of their own material at the end of their performance, which was full of both old and new. The duo played “Disco Kid” off of Star Stuff and explained the backstory of the naming of the song (which was great) as well as an amazing version of “Cascade.” From the even older songs, they played a staple to their live set “Mexican Synth” off of their 2011 album Feeling Hands¬†which felt even more extended and jammy which I was 100% okay with.
