Jaimoe is typically associated with a band regarded as one of the seminal purveyors of so-called Southern rock. You might have heard of them, The Allman Brothers Band.
Yet, the drummer who has rocked the South for over three decades now finds himself residing in Connecticut, where he’s known locally for jazz and blues. Last fall, he sat in with saxophonist Ravi Coltrane (son of John), during the Hartford International Jazz Festival for an inspired rendition of Miles Davis' "All Blues."
Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band will be gracing StageOne with interpretations of blues, funk and jazz classics. Their repertoire ranges from "Night in Tunisia" to "Let the Good Times Roll." They might even pull out an old Allman’s hit like "Blue Sky" or a Herbie Hancock favorite like "Cantaloupe Island."
