Music to My Ears

Duane Allman’s birthday was Nov 20th so I listened to music from The Allman Brothers Band all day. I was in the kitchen prepping for a houseful of guests scheduled to arrive Saturday for an early Thanksgiving celebration. More than once I found myself marveling at the genius of Duane’s slide guitar playing, the intricate harmonies of the dual guitar leads that he and Dickey Betts arranged, Gregg Allman’s soulful vocal deliveries and the solid foundation maintained by bassist Barry Oakley and drummers Butch Trucks and "Jaimoe" Johanson.
