Jaimoe's Jasssz Band
The Iridium
New York, NY
July 24, 2017

When guitarist Duane Allman was looking to start a band in 1969, the first musician he hired was drummer Jai Johanny Johanson. Just 24 years old at the time, Johanson, becoming known from Memphis to Muscle Shoals simply as Jaimoe, ...

The Allman Brothers Band: Live From A&R Studios New York August 26th 1971

Read "Live From A&R Studios New York August 26th 1971" reviewed by Doug Collette

Sacrilegious as it may sound, the Allman Brothers' performance on Live From A&R Studios New York August 26th 1971 is superior to At Fillmore East (Capricorn, 1971), heretofore regarded as the definitive document of this seminal southern rock band's on-stage expertise. After prior bootlegging in a variety of forms, the recording of the former has been ...

Motel Shot: Expanded Edition

Read "Motel Shot: Expanded Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette

With the passage of time, Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett, are unfortunately becoming more and more the unsung heroes of a Seventies rock and roll. The Southern couple not only acknowledged, but built upon roots of blues, folk and country, as well as the soul and r&b influences at the very heart of their style, aided and ...

Gregg Allman: December 8, 1947 – May 27, 2017

Read "Gregg Allman: December 8, 1947 – May 27, 2017" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

“Well, I'll keep on moving. Things are bound to be improving these days. One of these days..."

Gregg Allman recorded Jackson Browne's lament for his 1973 Capricorn release Laid Back. The song clung to him like smoke, the length of his career, surfacing here and there, until, finally he sang the song with its ...

Brooklyn Bowl
Brooklyn, NY

Despite multiple breakups and long hiatuses, the Allman Brothers Band survived successfully for as long as it did by adding fresh, complementary talent that reinvigorated the original members, and through the players' fierce, collective focus on exploring and expanding ...

Duane Allman at 70: A Reflection

Read "Duane Allman at 70: A Reflection" reviewed by Alan Bryson

The actor James Dean once said, “If a man can bridge the gap between life and death, if he can live after he's died, then maybe he was a great man." James Dean is perhaps the charter member of a modern subset of such individuals who, due to modern technology, live on in the consciousness of ...

Top Ten Guitarists Who Left Us Too Soon

Read "Top Ten Guitarists Who Left Us Too Soon" reviewed by Alan Bryson

Ranking musicians is a hopelessly flawed endeavor. It's about as meaningful as having a list of the top ten best tasting foods. Taste is highly individualized, influenced by mood, familiarity, and the way in which multiple variables interact. One person's escargot is someone else's slice of Chicago style pizza. I just took a break and searched ...

Angelo Santelli: Angelo Santelli

Read "Angelo Santelli" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Floridian Angelo Santelli's debut eponymous recording is a richly mixed bag. An accomplished slide guitarist with associations within the Allman Brothers Band family, Santelli might be taken for granted as a jam-band blues knock off. This is before a first listen something else altogether. On nine disparate original compositions, Santelli reveals a much broader and deeper ...

Johnny Winter And Live

There is no other live rock and roll disc that is both so wrong and so perfect at the same time. Johnny Winter led a power trio in the early 1970s supplemented by guitarist Rick Derringer (who later ...

The Allman Brothers Band: Live - Beacon Theatre New York City 10-28-14

Read "The Allman Brothers Band: Live - Beacon Theatre New York City 10-28-14" reviewed by Doug Collette

The most stirring moments of the Allman Brothers Band's concert recording from New York City's Beacon Theatre on October 28, 2014 occur near the end of its nearly four-hour performance--not surprisingly, within a rendition of the group's signature instrumental, “Mountain Jam"--that are as emphatic as they are mellifluous. The patient but rabid audience offers instant recognition ...
