Revival

This was one of those shows that can only happen at the Beacon; mid-week, lots of guests, lots of combinations, and loose as a goose. Indeed Warren warned us with a sly grin, "The later in the run it gets, the looser we get." But loose is good. (Also, tight is good; go figure.) Loose means...

...well, it means for example they come on for "One Way Out" with two guitarists and a centerfielder. No Bill Graham introduction tonight, they just sort of fall into "One Way Out," brisk and fresh, with friend Bernie Williams guesting on guirar and acquitting himself nicely. "Midnight RIder" follows, Bernie off; then "High Cost of Low Living." Out of the body of the song Warren plays nice, loping lines that arc upward, Derek lays on some mood on slide, then takes off on a solo, on and on, scratching at an insistent itch, more and more intense. Oteil beams, the band locks, into an "Aint Wastin' TIme No More"-style peak blowing wistful kisses into the end...

Derek brings in the big chiming bangs of "Bag End," and comes out of the gate all big and shimmery. Warren explores tentatively over the drummers, then Warren and Oteil square off for a conversation that turns into a throw down. Then Oteil's spidery fingers lay a bed for Derek's tone poem, and a taut close. The shimmer oozes over as Ruthie Foster comes onstage over on the left side, and Williams returns, for "River's Gonna Rise." Warren sings the vocals, but on the chorus Oteil and Ruthie respond with backing vocals ("the river's gonna rise!") all gospelly. There's a serious front line vamping with a hard lean-in while Ruthie goes to town; it's a small town, with a big church. All in all, quite a joyful racket. Derek tosses out judicious rings and lines as Ruthie takes it down low at the end. It's an early highlight.

With the Juke Horns on, "Blind Willie McTell" is a New Orleans funeral dirge, the horns all weepy and pitiful. A trumpet solo, then Warren asks a sad question on guitar. He sings the hell out of his verse the spirit is clearly upon him; then Gregg sings a verse, more laconic, then Derek takes off. One of the best versions of this song I've heard, and a nice surprise for the horn segment.

"Standback" turns into one of those extended one-chord smolder-jams. The horns blow in time together, a great chart, and as Derek wails against them, sparks fly off his slide. Then he plays their riff, and everyone crashes to the close. "That was awesome," my friend Henry says, as Oteil points to the Jukes.

I know some people turn their noses up at "Soulshine," but if you want a trip to that happy place, and you're game to take the ride, this one's a short cut. The extended band camps out on the happy juice gland a good long time, to the consensus delight of the house, souls are shining all around; then, as if to avoid the risk of getting too corny, they slam right into "The Same Thing" before you have a chance to take a breath.The first solo out of the vocals is trombone; then Warren takes a spicy lead, then the vocals, then Oteil spools our some funky murky bottom. Everyone describes an Allman Brothers show as being either a "Derek show," or a "Warren show," but I'm starting to think
