Just before the rains came to curtail their set a few minutes early at the Newport Folk Festival Saturday, Jim James and My Morning Jacket played It Makes No Difference, a tribute to Levon Helm of The Band, who died in April. Levon performed at Newport in 2010. James had opened for Levon and sung this tune while Levon played drums.


The amazing Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes lends her considerable voice to the tune, and Clint Maedgen of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band elevates it all with a sweet sax solo.
