The last of our promised table scraps from this year’s party in Grant Park comes courtesy of the ever-great My Morning Jacket. Jim and the guys clearly were out to class up the fest this year, but performing with the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra simply wasn’t enough for MMJ: Mr. James went the distance sporting a closely cropped coif, closing the set with a killer swing through Curtis Mayfield’s”Move On Up,” the band rocking the crowd outfitted in purple tuxes (yes, we believe purple tuxes = classy). The orchestra joined a few songs into the set, and alas, our vid captures a performance prior to the symphony’s accompaniment. Still, it is “What A Wonderful Man,” and it’s bound to please. Enjoy.
