As a member of The Allman Brothers Band, Jaimoe has been one half of one of the most enduring drumming teams in rock and roll history. Jaimoe and Butch Trucks have provided the drumming on all of the band’s classic albums, but Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band sees him as sole drummer and bandleader.

Having released two live albums, the group (which also features singer/guitarist Junior Mack) released their debut studio album last year. Renaissance Man features a lot of original material, as well as a cover of “Rainy Night In Georgia” and an update of The Allmans’ classic “Melissa.”

After decades of touring as part of a two drummer band, Jaimoe talked about being in a one-kit group. Jaimoe compared his partnership with Trucks to Allman Brothers’ guitar teams past and present:
