Besides being a part of the Allman Brothers Band’s rhythmic foundation for nearly 40 years, Jaimoe has a nearly limitless musical appetite that includes jazz, blues and R&B. When he is not on the road with the ABB, Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band is his primary vehicle for exploring other aspects of his muse.
Featuring excellent players like Jay Collins of Gregg Allman and Friends, David Stoltz of Dickey Betts and Great Southern, and guitar slinger and vocalist Junior Mack, this is a true all-star band. Playing mainly in his home state of Connecticut, these gigs have become a special treat for New England Peach-heads, and for years we have had people asking if this outstanding ensemble would ever release a CD...and now they have!
The 1/28/06 show from the Double Down Grill features the talented Junior Mack on guitar, and Set One has great versions of the Meters classics “Cissy Strut” and “Hey Pocky Way,” as well as a bluesy take on “Steady Rollin’ Man.” Set Two is jazzier, with stellar renditions of Dizzy Gillespie’s “Night In Tunisia” and Wayne Shorter’s “Footprints,” as well as an electrifying version of “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed.”
