Jaimoe's Jasssz Band

When: Wed., Jan. 25 2012

JAIMOE’S JASSSZ BAND As a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band, drummer Jaimoe (aka Jai Johanny Johanson) has impeccable blues rock cred. Unlike Southern rock rivals like Skynyrd, the Allmans could always swing with furious jazz intensity, thanks in no small part to Jaimoe, who also backed Otis Redding and Sam and Dave. His Jassz Band is a confident crew that makes working a deep groove look easy, equally at home with mellow bluesy ballads, greasy R&B rave-ups and the upper stratosphere of Sun Ra style jazz rock — sometimes all in the same song. Expect soulful vocals and richly ringing guitar from Junior Mack, punchy Memphis horns, exotic touches of flute, and fire in the belly courtesy of Jaimoe. (Pat Moran)
