Everybody love the big, as my pal Ron calls them, "Who's your daddy?" weekend shows. But personally, I always have a soft spot in my heart and ears for those magical mid-week shows... sometimes everything hits just right, and the mid-week shows can be true gold. This was one of those nights, where pretty much everything the band tried, succeeded; to my ears, the best of the 5 shows I've seen so far.
Warren offers a nasty little spanking on "Trouble No More," Derek wails like s tomcat, hitting the spot. "Leave My Blues at Home" has the boys cooking in a cauldron, seriously crunchy, an extended conversation between Derek and Warren becomes more and more heated, then everyone tumbles forward into the closing licks. Two songs in and they've already made a statement.
Oteil drops a little bottom on yo' ass, which quickly evolves into the opening movement of "Rocking Horse." Derek and the drummers lock into a brisk funk rhythm, Warren falls into it, then solos happily over the top, going a good long time before putting on the fire chief hat and pouring on the gasoline. Your brain asks your ass to dance; but your ass is way ahead of you. Meanwhile Warren just drills away at that spot... then the band makes some misty transition space, Derek takes some eastern-sounding runs, then goes all sunshiny, and Oteil lays down the bottom that becomes the "Derek's tune" movement.
As the final section of a massive "Horse" winds down Derek takes a few steps over to check in with Gregg; then the band rolls straight into "Low Down Dirty Mean." Warren plays some ticklish, loping slide reminiscent of Jerry Garcia, then Derek hitches a ride into town on the outro; Warren takes a little delta blues run of his own, then throws the gauntlet down to Derek, and the two of them play a little game of "can you top this," camping it up in super-playful fashion. They both bust out in smiles as the band hits the final chords; good to see they are having as much fun as we are. Highlight.
Derek soars on "Revival," offering up a little "Mountain Jam" tease. Oteil locks in and shimmers with Marc. Warren explores, probes, then finds a groove he likes and he's off, watery lines rippling out over the room. Then the percussionists lay down the shaky mystic groove of "Egypt," Oteil enters, then the guitars. "Egypt" may well be this line-up's signature instrumental. Derek races up and down the neck, then pulls up for a stop leading into a sparse interlude that the two guitars fill with rubbery question marks, then Warren goes all Warren Haynes epic elegiac, until finally the band returns on a cool midnight breeze. Exquisite.
It's mid-week, so out come the Juke Horns, first for "I Found a Love." Derek manages to keep his solo inside the lines, which isn't easy; imagine Hendrix jamming with the Ink Spots. Yonrico Scott joins on Jaimoe's kit for the Band chestnut "It Makes No Difference," which features a lovely Warren vocal performance, the horns straining against the vocal melody. A trumpet solo, then Derek hits the payoff on the end of his solo. Next Cyril Neville joins the fun for an epic "Same Thing." A tasty trombone solo, N'Awlins-style; the engine room responds, sending up heat. Warren stings and dances. More vocals, then ensemble horn lines, then Oteil runs up and down his fret board, dropping handfuls of thunder every which way. The band comes back hard, churns; the horns go off into org
