I bought this 2 disc set after a great performance by the Derek Trucks band at the Paramus Picture show in New Jersey, several years ago, (maybe in 2004?). I played it over and over for a long time, and I was pleasantly surprised by the different kinds of music on the album. I really enjoyed hearing "Angola" by Wayne Shorter, from a favorite album of mine called "The Soothsayer". At the Paramus show the band had played "Cheesecake" by Dexter Gordon, from the "Go" album, another old favorite of mine. I like all of the music the band plays, from Afro Cuban to soul music, to jazz, basically whatever they're in the mood to serve up. I noticed the liner of the album mentions Sun Ra. I used to go hear him play in NYC. I heard him at a club called Danceteria, the Squat theatre, and finally the Village Vanguard where I got to meet him briefly. If I was as talented as the guys in the band, I would love to play all of the different kinds of music on the album. I also listen to the "Soul Serenade" album and more recently "Already Free", and I have a copy of the "Songlines" video. Its great to be reminded of great artists like King Curtis and Mongo Santamaria and Elvin Jones et al., but the band definitely has its own sound, and I really enjoy listening to them play. I always liked the Allman Brothers Band from a long time back, and I've also gone to see Derek Trucks play with the current ABB. Keep up the good work, and hopefully I can get out to see the DTB again sometime soon!
