You Don't Love Me

This one was a corker.

The band rolls off into the shuffle that heralds "Done Somebody Wrong," Warren assaying lines over the top. Then he hops half a turn to face Derek, and his slide lines intertwine with Derek's shuffle chording... then they crisscross, and Warren is chording and Derek is sliding. Derek hangs a note and ambles over to Gregg with it, and Gregg is off into the song. It's especially loose, like your favorite pair of old sneakers; a nice start, everyone is firing on all cylinders, with lots of stellar slide work."Leave My Blues at Home" is solid and taut; a fake ending gives way to the drummers. and now the band is shoveling coal onto a hot fire on a positively searing, extended one chord frenzy.

After "Come and Go Blues" Warren offers up "Worried Down." An incendiary Derek excursion pulls applause form the eager house, then a simply sublime Warren leads the band in smoldering, perfect unhurried time. This is a theme all evening-- the band occupying the songs fully in the moment, in no hurry, letting the music come to them with all the time in the world. Next a shimmering "Bag End," with Derek playing a bunch of scratchy slide; then a deep dark soulful "Blind Willie McTell."

On "Revival," after the initial song run-through they open it up, look inside, all curiosity and no rush, Warren offering up a little 'Fly Me to the Moon," till eventually the music becomes a hard jam that charges back into the song riff. "People can you feel it?" is a full-on group happy dance.

Next "Hot 'lanta" comes on, which augers well given what they did with it last Saturday night. Again, after running through the piece, there's basically a hard stop in place of the drum break; Oteil does a snaky dance, taking the band into territory that's kinda "Kind of Bird." Bill Evans has come on, and he blows like crazy, man, skronky dissonant bop sax that eases into "Watchtower." Warren plays the intro lines from the Hendrix version, and they're big and tiny at the same time; he sings the hell out of the vocals. Derek fills the room with tone, then sad urgent leading lines. Evans wanders over center stage from outside right to see what all the fuss is about, and trades call-and-response licks with Derek; then Warren joins the huddle on rhythm; then Warren plays sweet, redolent, resiny licks that give way to the vocals again. (At this point the guy next to me turns and observes, "The pacing is great tonight." he's spot on.) Derek coaxes tiny, Whoville cries of delight, then he's ringing, and now it's a descending run, down, down... and it's back to "Hot 'lanta." Exquisite.

The acoustic set after intermission opens with a nice "Working Class Hero," the John Lennon song, then "All My Friends" and "Needle and the Damage Done," the later featuring some lovely Derek slide work; Gregg handles the vocals, and yeah, he's got a right to sing that one. Then one foot in acoustic, one in electric for "Melissa."

Coming out of "Melissa" there is a thundering rumble approaching off in the distance, like a herd on the move... it is Oteil, who lays out da funk, which gives way to a jaunty jam. Warren adds some slide accents, Derek and the drums lock on, and it is "Rocking Horse." Out of the vocal section Warren's lead is supported by intertwining Derek and Oteil chording and smoking. There's a smash into a stop for the transition, then Oteil rings out on bass as the music falls out of time, until finally Derek saddles up t
