What a treat having original Allman Brothers Band drummer and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Jaimoe (originally Jai Johanny Johansen), back in the mountains, this time steering his own band playing “improvised, American” music. That’s jazz, folks! In between Allman Brothers Band gigs, Jaimoe got together with guitarist-singer Junior Mack to make some music. Their chemistry was readily apparent and they’ve been performing together ever since. The band is a well-oiled combo featuring David Stoltz on bass, Bruce Katz, keyboards, and a ripping horn section consisting of Paul Lieberman on sax, flute, and piccolo, Kris Jensen, sax and Reggie Pittman on trumpet. Their jazz-inflected treatments of Allmans classics, originals, and blues standards will have you swooning.
