Just got in from the Jones Beach show. It was a good show with a great set-list. I had a lot of mixed thoughts about it. Too many to get into tonight w/o more reflection, but one thing is for sure.......Derek is amazing. I know this isn't news, but wow. He didn't really have as many drawn out, build-up type solos with the walking fingers thing we've gotten used to tonight, but it is something fresh all the time. I'm not a guitar expert, so I can't quite put it in words, but he just seems to do something different or take a song to another place every time out. He also seems to be playing with more confidence or gusto. I know he never had reason to doubt himself.........but it's almost like there is a touch more flare, like he is right at home with the band more than ever. It's nothing showy or upstaging, just a subtle change. I guess that would happen for anyone getting more comfortable and versed in the music, but with his ability it just opens some crazy doors.

I'd love to hear anyone's thoughts on this or the show in general.

The short version - I was fairly disappointed with the set list. A lot of songs with similar tempos and grooves, they never really changed it up besides Afro Blue and Melissa. I think the set could have really used a slow, minor blues - something like Stormy Monday, Smokestack Lightning, or even Gambler's Roll. Derek's playing on the slide duo before Hoochie Coochie was the highlight of my night. They seemed to keep the jams pretty short, none of the real extended, build-up soloing, but then again, these weren't really those kind of songs. Gregg sounded great the whole night, Don't Keep Me Wondering especially. Liked the drumjam, minus the morons yelling "hit the gong!" Lastly, a t-shirt in the upper deck area was a mistake.

I believe it was Amazing Grace, not Little Martha, but I could be mistaken

It was a great Derek night, and he did seem to be playing with some extra confidence.

Manatwo makes an interesting point about the setlist. I'm always in favor of a Stormy Monday these days. It was a good show, though, and they did stretch out a few times - especially on You Don't Love Me.

I thought Derek and Warren both ripped it up tonight.Both of their solos on Liz Reed were crazy good.The chemistry level and tightness of this band is incredible right now.I don't know if I can wait all the way till March for another fix!

Peace!!!!!!!!!

I hear you guys, it would have been good to hear a 44 blues, Stormy Monday, or even a Desdemona where they could stretch it out, but for my money if I get a Liz Reed and an Afro Blue in the same night I'm satisfied.

Warren seemed a bit laid back last night...Like he didn't really get cooking until the last half of the show. And the tone of his guitar (maybe it was just a sound difference??)on Liz Reed was interesting. It was identifiably different than I've heard on this song in the past. I think. Nice solo though.

Greg didn't seem to be booming the vocals as much as he was in March, but maybe that's just being outside. I'm spoiled by the Beacon

The band really sounded tight and in sync. They made some nice transitions right on a dime. A good show, it just presented a little differently to me than I expected. That keeps it interesting though.....a good thing.

Excellent point about Derek and his "confidence" level--he seemed so sure of himself on Sunday night at Nissan. I can't think of a better way to put it, but he's grown up some and matured musically--even more than before, I think. I'm not sure if I'm expressing myself the way I want to here...

Touring with Eric Clapton and playing places like the Royal Albert Hall in front of thousands of screaming fans can do wonders for your confidence

Derek has always continued to improve on virtually a daily basis, no reason to think he would stop now....

Derek is definitely on a different level, again his confidence is HUGE, and he is just having fun!

And I think it was the first time I've heard him speak. He introduced his band and I was struck by the deep and commanding tone of his voice. He has certainly matured since March.

So why won't he get within 20 feet of a mic? To sing that is...

Last night was my first JonesBeach show. And, while it was no Beacon, I thought the venue was perfect for the summertime and the sound was excellent from where I was sitting in the orchestra.
Oh yeah, and Derek's playing is superhuman.

I believe that last night was the first time hearing the DTB since last year. The Big House show to be exact. I wish they would do that again.

I heard it at the Emelin last year, at Town Hall, at Premier Music Hall, at the Big House, and tonight - every single time. Maybe I'm crazy, but I don't think it's that rare that he introduces the band

I was particularly happy with the set list. I had never hear Melissa live before. Hootchie Cootchie Man is not that common. Afro-Blue was a total treat. And it was a killer Liz Reed. I thought the songs really gave Gregg a chance to show his chops and he is sounding better and better. I don't agree that all the songs were similar in tempo and grooves. Come and Go Blues is a mellow song as is Melissa of course and Midnight Rider. I myself prefer uptempo jams like the Weight and Liz Reed. I also prefer my blues uptempo. I have always liked YDLM and HCM and SB better than Stormy Monday. It's a matter of taste. Last summer's show seemed more laid back and mellow tih Revival, Soulshine, Dreams and Jessica. This was more in your face jamming. I thought it was great.

i thought it was a great jones beach show. great to see DTB again--huge fan. I thought the show was rockin and I am always thrilled to see my fave song--liz reed. i loved the interplay between warren and derek on some of the songs where they did the call and response solos. and like many of you said, derek is amazing. he just seems to be getting better all the time. it also seemed that there was space for him in the songs to jump in with a lead whenever he wanted to. the intro solo to liz reed was my favorite part of the show. i knew it would be the last song so we got out right at the end of the set so we could get the bus and to the earlier train. slept in and took a few hours of vacation time and came in at 12 today. feelin good and had the best time. and we easily moved down from the nosebleeds to section 6L on the right side in stadium 2. was empty when we got there but filled up with upper deckers by mid-set.

my only ABB show of the summer but with 3 incredible Beacon shows this year I have had a good year with them. looking forward to Clapton on 9/29 at MSG!! hope many of you got tix. that is going to be a show not to be missed!

enjoy the rest of the tour everyone.
