Luther Dickinson of the North Mississippi All Stars joined Derek Trucks and the Tedeschi Trucks Bands last night at the Beacon for a three-song encore, concluding with the Allman Brothers Band’s 1970 instrumental “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed.” Check it out below… video and photo above both by Marc Millman.
It’s an amazing testament to the genius of Dickey Betts and the original ABB that in 2016 no one has come close to topping their almost-50-year-old instrumentals! I think Derek needs to record a guitar album working with people like Luther Warren Haynes, Jimmy Herring… even Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock. I want to hear him keep stretching and being pushed and prodded by other alpha soloists. Enjoy!
