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 2//27/08 show, dedicated to the memory of legendary jazz drummer Ed Blackwell, is a passionate performance that shows Jaimoe paying homage to one of his primary influences. The delicate “Twilight Waltz” and a haunting version of “People Get Ready” are highlights of the first set, while John Coltrane’s “Impressions” and Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come” make Set Two an incredible musical journey.
