    I’m speechless! Admittedly, I’ve always loved the Allman Brothers, but this is a soulful, bluesy treatment of their greats done with SUPERB musicians. I’m seriously loving this album!!!

    I started out by buying “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed”. This track should be “Jazz Single Of The Year”. Unbelievably incredible playing. Horns, sax, organ, drums, and the most amazing guitar solo by Jack Pearson. Outstanding music. I’ve listened to the other tracks and don’t just purchase a whole album, so I will listen carefully. Liz Reed is in a league of it’s own. Hands Down !!!!

    The Allman Brothers were so great at mixing jazz with the blues. This is a natural. The artists here have great jazz chops, and it’s clear that they fully understand the intricacies of the Allman Brothers music. The blues and jazz exploration are in great hands on this recording. Enjoy!
  • Wow!

    Long time fan of anything by Marc Broussard and Ruthie Foster, and well, of course, the ABB. Love the arrangements, and the horns!! This is just a great surprise and will be in heavy rotation.
  • A nice marriage, nicely made

    I should declare my bias by noting that I take drum lessons from the drummer, who played me one of the songs on this album, which led me to listen to the other songs available on Itunes so far. That said, I think the music of the ABB is well-suited to big band arrangements--not surprisingly, if you listen to their music, but just how well the marriage between those songs and big band arrangement is brought off here is, if not a surprise, then surely a delight. The arrangement of Whipping Post in particular is great fun. No mere novelty, this project is a great idea with great, tight execution.

    I was brought almost to tears of gratitude after hearing this big band’s arrangement of LizReed, one of the gems to have early emerged from the Allman Brothers Band’s catalog. It’s the composition of Dickie Betts, the ABB lead guitarist who possessed a marvelous sense of lyricism and on point rhythmic dynamism. I have long listened to Liz Reed and heard the possibilities of capturing its interplay of melodic and contrapuntal complexities into something more musically elaborate, dare I say jazz-like. And here it is! Especially for admirers of Dickie Betts, this big band treatment of Liz Reed rewards close listening to the band’s various sections as the tune progresses. It doesn’t disappoint as one can hear all Dickie’s licks and transitions faithfully captured. The wonderful solo guitarist (name?) who appears toward the end of the piece provides a satisfying close to this marvelous musical journey. I cannot wait to have jazz friends who have heretofore turned up their noses at ABB hear this soon-to-be released album. Reviewed with hope and gratitude...
