Elvin talks about playing with brothers at the Beacon in 2007

ELVIN BISHOP'S ALL-STAR ALBUM 'THE BLUES ROLLS ON' HARKS BACKS TO HIS ROOTS, DUE OUT SEPT. 23 ON DELTA GROOVE MUSIC. B. B.

KING, DEREK TRUCKS, WARREN HAYNES, JAMES COTTON, KIM WILSON, GEORGE THOROGOOD AND OTHERS SUPPORT!

Struttin' My Stuff: With members of his '70s band and special guests, Elvin pulls "Struttin'" into the 21st century! "I jammed with the Allman Brothers Band at the Beacon Theater in 2007, for the first time since the days of Duane and Dickie. It was with Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks. Wow unbelievable musicians. When Warren told me he used to play Struttin' My Stuff as a sixteen-year-old in a bar band, I said 'we gotta do it.' It's not exactly blues, but it's a good example of how the music flows from one generation to the next, and boy did they tear it up.

"Keep A Dollar In Your Pocket: Elvin got this one from drummer-vocalist-bandleader Roy Milton, who shares an Oklahoma connection Roy was born on an Indian reservation there in 1907. B.B. King collaborates and reminisces; the relaxed swing but deep overall feel of the song and the clear, genuine rapport between Elvin and B.B. make this a highlight. "B.B.'s the most important guy in the blues. I've been listening to him since the fifties and have known him since we played together at the old Fillmore in the mid sixties. He was nice enough to invite me to his room at the Fairmont Hotel, where I found him on his bed surrounded by sheet music, working away on scales and exercises. After we had a long talk, he called up a barbeque place in Oakland and had two orders of 'dry-fried' ribs delivered. Oh yeah! B.B. provided a great example for a young musician like myself he taught me a lot about developing a habit of self-improvement and valuing the music over some of the BS aspects of the music business."

I've always been a fan of Elvin and was absolutely thrilled to be able to yak with him a little at Jazzfest a few years back. One question I asked him was if he ever saw any of the brothers anymore and he said no, it had been a long time since he had seen any of them. When I was following the setlist of that Beacon Run on the web, I was absolutely thrilled to hear he was on stage with them. As you can tell in his little interview below, so was he - thrilled and impressed with our boys

Perhaps he has, Bruce Indeed it was 2006. I wasn't at that ABB show, but I was at the show he, Pinetop and Carey Bell did at Town Hall the next night. Our own brother Bill Ector was there as well.
Elvin is hoot, I talked to him after a fabulous show he did with Clarence Clemons at a little club here on Long Island, also in 2006. Nice guy, but he's out there. Love Elvin!
