Big Band of Brothers: A Jazz Celebration of the Allman Brothers Band is live at Ponte Vedra Concert Hall January 25, 2022.
The show is based on and inspired by the acclaimed album “Big Band of Brothers: A Jazz Celebration of the Allman Brothers Band”. It features Jaimoe (original member of the Allman Brothers Band) and stars Sammy Miller and The Congregation, with special guests Lamar Williams Jr. and Drew Smith.
Big Band of Brothers: A Jazz Celebration of the Allman Brothers Band was released in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Allman Brothers Band’s debut. It features a 10-song set of jazz interpretations of ABB favorites. The album garnered massive praise from both jazz and ABB fans and from critics in publications such as Downbeat.
While jazz interpretations of Allman Brothers Band classics might come off as a surprise to some, the genre always held great inspiration for the band. Gregg Allman, recalling their early days, said “Jaimoe [drummer Jai Johanny Johanson] gave us a proper education about jazz and got us into Miles Davis and John Coltrane. ‘Kind of Blue’ was always on the turntable – Duane really got his head around that album – he also seriously dug Coltrane’s ‘My Favorite Things’.”
