The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall presents Big Band of Brothers: A Jazz Celebration of the Allman Brothers Bandat 8 p.m. Tuesday, January 25, 2022.
Inspired by the acclaimed album Big Band of Brothers: A Jazz Celebration of the Allman Brothers Band, this live show 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 by New West Records in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Allman Brothers Band’s debut, and features a 10-song set of jazz interpretations of favorites.
The album garnered massive praise from both jazz and Allman Brothers Band 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.”
