For whatever it's worth, I'm hoping sometime soon, Jimmy gives the Grateful Dead songbook a rest and does his own thing. When I hear the way he connects with Derek, I wish they could play together regularly. Maybe an ARU/DTB tour would be in order?

I think one of the things that sets this show apart is the refreshing uniqueness of it. It's a bit of an oddity. Jimmy isn't the "typical" ABB guitarist. He doesn't come from a blues/rock background. His insane chops are on a whole different level than just about anyone else they've had. His phrasing, and the fluidity and speed and harmonic complexity of his solos are something you don't expect to hear, yet it fits. I think it's a real testament to the band that their songs provided such a perfect backdrop for Jimmy's style to shine.

I'm fairly confident Jimmy could have played in a more "ABB approved" style, but as I mentioned above, the Brothers encouraged him to be himself as much as possible. He started out trying to sound like Dickey, and they said "uh uh."

I think Jimmy was exactly who they needed for that tour. He filled the void that Dickey left, without being a replacement, and took them to some interesting places musically. But I also agree that Warren is exactly who they need right now. Without him, who knows where they'd be?

Jimmy may not have worked out long term, but for that one tour it was magic.

Marley and Jeck both make good points that I agree with. Jeck, I don't know if you ever read my article in Jambands.com about Dickey being fired from the band, but at the end of that article I basically say that 9/23/00 restored my faith in the continued existence of the Allman Brothers. Jimmy played a truly heroic role in this whole saga, as far as I'm concerned.

Marley, you're right about Derek and Jimmy. I was at the 12/26/03 show you have been raving about lately, truly special music was made that night. Someday soon, it would be great to see the two of them get to play together every night for an extended period of time.

YES! I'm with you on that! I'm an ABB from wayyyyy back but recently exposed to Jimmy Herring and ARU. Then someone sent me DTB's 12/26/03 show. Simply awesome work! One of those shows that give ya goosebumps. I think it's my favorite DTB show so far. Now I have a copy of the ABB 9/23/00 show. Les Brers just blew me away. The whole show is special indeed! I was never a Grateful Dead fan but had I known this guitarist was around, I may have been.

I get really excited about Derek Trucks. This young man is genius material, in my opinion. I can't hear him enough. I would pay big bucks to see him and Jimmy jam together!

The "Z" tuning comes from before Project Z. Detunining instruments was done by
ARU long ago.


Why would anyone wish that Jimmy give up his gig with the Dead?

It's a great gig, Jimmy is having a blast and is making some bread.

Let's just wish him success with his wishes.

Peace
John

But you said you wish he would do his own thing.

How do you know that playing improvisational music with
Warren and the Dead is not his thing?

Are you the real Jimmy Herring?

Bruce Hampton never gave Jimmy a wacky Zambi nickname as he is prone to do. When Jimmy asked him why, he said "Because you're the only person I've ever met who really IS Jimmy Herring." Jimmy says Colonel Bruce will still call from time to time and ask him "Are you REALLY Jimmy Herring?"

It is his thing and he's great at it. I said his own thing, meaning creating original music. Talented as he is (and this also goes for Warren), with the Dead they are sidemen working on something other people created. I want to see Jimmy's own musical vision.

I'm not even good enough to be the fake Jimmy Herring.

I heard this show just the other day, either for the first time or for the first time in a long time. What an amazing performance! (I also heard Jimmy's first show with the band, 6/16/00.) And the teamwork Jimmy and Derek had is absolutely incomparable. Derek and Warren are a great team, but Derek and Jimmy come from the same place as guitarists and have played together for so long. Hearing them do their thing with the ABB was really great.

Marley, I couldn't agree more. Jimmy and Derek are absolutely magical together. I have collected a lot of that summer 2000 tour just for that reason. Outside of the Duane era, 9/23/00 is one of my favorite shows. I listen to it a lot

I've been listening to this show like crazy lately. With respect to the other lineups, it's probably the best ABB I've heard since Duane. Herring is the most skilled guitarist they've ever had in my opinion, and he takes the band to a whole new level on this one.

The sad thing is, I was living in Raleigh at the time but wasn't really into the Brothers then. I lived about fifteen minutes from Alltel Pavillion and probably didn't even know they were playing. Oh well.


Man this kills me. I was living in Raleigh, and wasn't in to the Brothers just yet, I remember people going to this show and I passed, I think because it was raining so I didn't go. Man am I regretting it. I'm listening to 9/22/00 right now, never heard this. Maybe it's better I don't, I'll just be more disappointed I missed it.
