If the Saturday night encore of "Southbound" (in which participated guitarist/vocalist Jimmy Vivino) thus seemed anticlimactic in the most routine way, it was also effective in offering a relatively low-key moment of reflection for the musicians as well as the audience, all of whom had experienced a unique communal experience that night. With the beginning of this particular evening, concluding with an uproarious rendition of "Revival," seeming like nothing so much as an extended aural get well wish for Gregg, the sizzling recapitulation of empathetic group expertise from the previous evening certainly earned all the musicians, and perhaps Warren Haynes most of all, an opportunity to breathe a sigh of relief.

Those expecting a conventional ABB show March 21 and 22 got anything but that, the depth of thought and expanse of talent in action on the stage of this gorgeous venue rare fodder indeed for music lovers with their ears and minds most open.
