Donna Jean and the Tricksters Donna Jean Godchaux-McKay, a former session singer in the Southern soul hotbed of Muscle Shoals, Ala., (she worked with Aretha, Elvis and Otis, among others) is of course best known for her musical carryin’ on with the Grateful Dead and the Jerry Garcia Band, both with and without former husband Keith Godchaux, one of the Dead’s almost Spinal Tap-like string of keyboardists. She still works with some of the Dead extended family, but now gets her kicks (or tricks, perhaps) with her new band, a reconfiguration of her first post-Dead conflagration, Kettle Joe’s Psychedelic Swamp Revue. If’n you like acid-spiked bar band blues, you’ll no doubt find these Tricksters a treat. Double Door Inn (Davis)
