Orfeo gets better each time I listen to it,the first time I heard I thought it was boring.but I am truly becoming a believer of it,it has a carlos santana feel to it.egypt to me is in the category of true epic ABB jams,builds momentum with each note,Like liz reed.
hope someday they put it out on cd .don't know why they haven't played it this tour yet.
but I am sure it is coming

Is "Orfeo" the instrumental that for quite a while was referred to as "the new instrumental?...since it had no name at that point?

Which ABB instrumetal (Jessica, Liz Reed, Pegasus, Instrumental illness, etc) would you say Orfeo is closest to?

I do too, sometimes. But we have Dickey and Great Southern for that.

If the current ABB tried to copy how Dickey does what he does it would'nt be real.


I'm just glad both bands are still "hittin the note" in their own unique ways.

I love both tunes. I've been a huge fan of "Egypt" from the first time I heard it. I think it is epic and one of my favorites, particularly from an instrumental stand point.

Personally, I feel that "Orfeo" is probably closest to "Egypt" than anything in the ABB instrumental roster, past or present.

And I love that one too. I am biased though, I tend to like most things ABB. And new songs are usually an awesome delight for me.

The tune was named "Orpheo" by Derek ... as in Orpheus the Poet and Lyre player in Greek mythology ... not with an "f" as y'all seem to keep on using ...

I enjoy both songs was lucky enough to see Orfeo at the Beacon and Egypt at Jones Beach and over and over again on vines.

Isn't very melodic

Agreed. As I read in another thread, someone even called it "Little Egypt". Each song does have a different "father" though. I think though all are related by the same muse.

Big fan of both. If I had to compare Orfeo to other songs, it would be half Egypt and half Hey Driver, What City?, which the dTb doesn't do anymore for some reason.

The correct spelling is Orfeo. It's the Italian version of Orpheus.

I've yet to hear Orfeo. I remember when I saw the Allman Brothers about 4 years they played Egypt. I had never heard it before that night and I remember it just completely knocked me out.

It is ok to hear either one every now and then, but really I'm not much into those two. I do like Instrumental Illness....I'm probably in the minority on both counts.

Thanks to moogis I've heard Orfeo several times, but don't care for it. Heard it Saturday at the gorge. The only song that wasn't great. Don't like Istrumental Illness much and have never heard Egypt.
Mountain Jam, Elizabeth Reed and Jessica are great. Prefer Dickey's creative input over Warren's. Totally.

I agree with this mostly but do feel they are in a class all of their own!

Hey Harvey,

You must have missed when Butch was talking about this over on Moogis. The song is spelled with an "f"

On opening night of the run we were treated to a new instrumental. It was an as yet unnamed instrumental. Right away the forums lit up inquiring about this new song. Initially Butch told us it was a new tune by Derek and Warren and nameless as of now.

Days later he gave us a name and challenged us why this name?

“BTW. The new instrumental has a name now "Orfeo". For those of you that have some knowledge of myth tell us what this comes from and why this spelling?”

The responses came in…

Hmmm, interesting.

The Greek Myth of Orpheus who attempts to rescue his dead lover from the underworld. His music is so powerful that it can make mountains dance and move God's themselves!

Why this spelling? Not sure. Please do tell...

In spanish, Orpheus is spelled 'Orfeo'... maybe a witty contribution from Mr. Quinones... who knows??? But that's only my two cents worth.

from "Orfeo ed Euridice" by Christoph Gluck ??

Butch finally gave us the inside scoop…

“The spelling "Orfeo" actually came from my daughter, Elise. She's the real brains in the family. The myth comes from many sources, Greek, Roman and many writers up to the modern age. I think it fits the tune”

“My son, Vaylor, mentioned that the music and structure seemed to fit with the myth of Orpheus and Euridice. I talked about the idea with a few people and my daughter came up with using the Italian spelling, Orfeo. We all liked it. Works better than the Latin, Orpheus. It's pronounced Or-fay-o”

I think they are both songs that should be on a studio album that we'll probably never see.

I've yet to hear "Orfeo". And, I've only recently acquired recordings of shows with "Egypt". I REALLY like "Egypt" A LOT! I tend to side with AlKeith in that I prefer the Dickey Betts type instrumentals, but "Egypt" (and "Instrumental Illness" before that) have given me a whole new appreciation of the current crew's instrumentals.

To me, there seems to be a lineage of the instrumentals regardless of composer...I think "Egypt" is the son of "Instrumental Illness", which is a logical follow up to "Kind Of Bird" which seemed the logical "spawn" from "True Gravity", which came from "Duane's Tune", etc, etc.

And, though, as I've already mentioned, I haven't heard it yet, the comparisons of "Orfeo" to "Egypt", that just seems to carry the thread that connects the instrumentals onwards.

Orfeo is a new favorite of mine. I first heard it at the Beacon and was lucky enough to hear it again Tuesday at the Greek. It's got a great little hook. Buy the live show discs. You won't regret it.

i would prefer to hear high falls or true gravity over these two anyday. i appreciate that they are creating new music, but these two classics really hit the note and have been out of the rotation for awhile. it's also a nice nod to dickey, the king of instrumentals.
