A brief taste of “The Weight” with more to come.
Last night at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Steve Winwood continued his run of dates opening for the Allman Brothers Band. This show marked the first occasion that Winwood and members of his group sat in with ABB, as guitarist Jose Neto, sax player Paul Booth, drummer Richard Bailey, percussionist Cafe DaSilva and Winwood himself all joined the group during their set. Neto, Bailey and DaSilva came out first during “Who’s Been Talking,” while Winwood appeared on “I Found A Love” and “The Weight,” with Booth and Bailey guesting on “The Same Thing.” Saxophonist Jay Collins, who has clocked in time with both Gregg Allman and Levon Helm’s solo bands and lives in the Woodstock area, also sat in on “The Weight.” On Friday both acts will appear at the Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion in Raleigh, NC.
