Wow!
Sure, Opening Night was solid and satisfied everyone who had been waiting all winter for the ABB. Night 2, however, was truly one of those special nights when everything just clicked.

Anytime "Statesboro Blues," "Midnight Rider" and "Whippin' Post" are part of the show, it's always special. While these classics followed form, what really made this performance so outstanding were the many surprises on several new and old selections -- not the least of which was "Mountain Jam" being turned into a vehicle for Derek's outstanding slide solo.

Right now, there is no better live band anywhere than the ABB, and this show was living proof. It's easy to appreciate these terrific musicians when things are going well, but to understand what makes them the ultimate professionals you had to see Warren finish his solo on "Whippin' Post" with five strings -- retuning after breaking a string.

My only regret is not having anything to trade for a recording of this show because it was as good as it gets, and most reading this knows how good it can get. Simply put, this show is why we all keep coming back to hear this all-time American treasure.

(no setlist; see Duffy's comment.)

Some folks may have thought I was restrained in my comments about Thursday's show. There was a reason. As one woman I spoke with Friday night put it, its like the Olympics. If you're a judge, you can't give the first gymnast a 6.0, because what happens if the next one is better? What would I do, in short, about a show like-- oh, I don't know-- Friday night?

There was a kink or two to be ironed out Thursday, mostly in the pacing; I do not think the band would have disagreed. I had no doubt things would be neatly ironed and pressed by night two.

The band takes the stage and begins the onset of a slow-building, instrumental crescendo, part tuning, part performance, before hitting the mark on an aggressive "Every Hungry Woman." They are immediately "present," in your face, with Oteil on the bottom and Warren driving the band forward. There is the insistent 2-guitar riff, then Warren plays some pile driver guitar-- Warren was spot-on all evening-- and then Derek pulls and snaps a solo from the strings of his poor guitar. Then "Statesboro Blues, with Warren, then Derek, playing blues solos over the bumpa dumpa bounce.

Oteil announces "Wasted Words" by improvising around the riff before the band joins him to slam into the song. On his slide solo Derek gets very loud, very hot, and very fast, a dramatic and powerful instrumental flourish.

Warren leads the band through "Hiding Place," a Haynes original he's played solo, that might as well be another Howlin' Wolf song, with its variation on the "I'm a Man"/Hoochie Coochie Man" familiar blues riff (actually, that probably makes it more of a Muddy Waters song.) "Is that going to be an Allman Brothers song?" I ask one of the band's posse. "Yeah, I think so" is the response. Good choice. Like a lot of the blues tunes Warren brings to the band, this one spends a lot of time on the one chord, the simplicity of song structure a vehicle for hard bop improv. Gregg plays some absolutely delicious church organ. Warren goes way up the fret board for his slide solo; Derek drives the song to a resounding close.

"Midnight Rider" is up next, always a sing-along; Warren sticks close to the now-familiar arrangement.

For the second night in a row the band favors us with the instrumental, "Egypt." The more this song is played, the easier it will be to tell which parts are composed and which are improvs. Tonight, in addition to the distinct dessert vibe, the song elicits thoughts of Santana in the instantly sublime opening chording. Derek plays a nice, climbing solo, his notes resonating throughout the house. Warren does an eastern dance with his spot. Overall, this song is shaping up as a beautiful addition to the set, and a compositional high point in the band's latter-period oeuvre (if I'm going to write reviews, I am required by law to use the word "oeuvre." I don't even know what it means.) Twenty minutes just seems to fly by.

Derek wails away, aggressively aloof-- and by the way, try being aggressive and aloof at the same time if you think its easy-- in his solo on "Don't Keep Me Wondering." At the end he points to Oteil, who picks up the riff but does not go off alone.

Then another highlight, "Desdemona;" the song has already become a band classic, and is greeted as such by the crowd. Gregg begins the instrumental break, after some heart-wrenching singing, with a nifty chorded organ solo; Derek, hovering nearby, watches him like a hawk the whole time. Then Derek peels off a slippery, resonant note that leads into his solo, layering it on top of Gregg's chording of the song's mid-section framework. Derek appears to have stopped pretending that the jazzy section to this song isn't "My Favorite Things," and within seconds he is stating that familiar song's beloved melody, Broadway by way of Coltrane. As he usually does with a melody, though, Derek wraps his guitar around it, basks in it ever

Mountain Jam on March 11, 2005 at The Beacon(Score: 1)

Hello All,

Tomorrow, I am attending the Allman Brothers at Jones Beach Theater. I wisely decided to listen to the Brothers in the shower the night before. I put on Mountain Jam from the 3-11-2005 show and was transported back to the Beacon Theater. I attended this show back in march, and was blown away. In the shower however, I closed my eyes and returned to the theater. The band is marvelous. Derek first took me on a musical journey with playing without his slide. His playing simply attacks my soul, it's wonderful. He then moves into a more sassy blues groove, and brings it to a boil when he adds his glass slide into the mix. I could swear I giggled out loud a few times at the truly magical moments.

If you want to listen to one song that expresses the very soul of musical creation, sit down, close your eyes and ride this fine Mountain Jam to the end.
