Album Notes
"To play the music of the Allman Brothers Band, and play it well, you need chops and technique and first-class musicianship, but you also need more than that.

There is a spirit to their music, a feeling that it creates in both the performers and the listener when it's done properly. Original ABB bassist Berry Oakley had a term for those magical moments when the universe aligns and everybody is feeling the music. He called it "hittin' the note."

At Hittin' The Note magazine, every now and then a new band comes across our radar that has that rare ability to "hit the note." It is even more rare for us to come across a band that can play the Allman Brothers' music so well that it gets our attention. Great Caesar's Ghost is such a band.

It's not that they copy the Allmans' music exactly. Considering that the ABB themselves never play a song the same way twice, that would be pointless. Rather, they embody that same spirit of joyous communion that makes the original versions so special, while still putting their own stamp on them.
So their version of "Les Brers" has a Marshall Tucker-ish flute solo where one of the guitar solos would be, for example, but it still respects the original in every way.

Just as a jazz band interprets old standards and makes them their own, Great Caesar's Ghost has taken the time to really get inside these tunes, and I think you will enjoy what they found there."
