The disc pumps fresh blood into the heart of soul and blues, stoked by Haynes’s Herculean prowess as both a powerhouse singer and guitarist — a reputation he’s earned as a member of three of the greatest live groups in rock history: The Allman Brothers Band, The Dead and his own Gov’t Mule.
In a sense, the vocal-driven Man In Motion is an album he’s been aching to make since he first dreamed of becoming a musician.
Haynes has accumulated stacks of accolades: They range from Grammy wins and nominations to his ranking at number 23 on Rolling Stone’s list of “The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” Haynes has played New York City’s historic Beacon Theater nearly 300 times, more than any other artist. Gov’t Mule has sold over two million song downloads from their own MuleTracks web site. And a wide range of stars including Garth Brooks, Gregg Allman, Phil Lesh, Little Milton, John Mayall, George Jones, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi and Buckwheat Zydeco have recorded his songs in addition to the 25 songs he’s written for the Allman Brothers Band.
In 2006, with the same questions looming even larger, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band has borrowed on Gaye’s inspiration to create a crowning achievement in their own career, which spans more than three decades of innovation and leadership in New Orleans music and beyond.
Mixing vibrant instrumental pieces with simmering, scorching vocal numbers (performed by guests Chuck D., Bettye LaVette, G. Love, Ivan Neville and Guru), the Dirty Dozen has translated the songs from What’s Going On into its own music language. The new recordings are infused with the powerful feelings resulting from the band’s own experiences with Hurricane Katrina, the subsequent massive flooding and the devastation of their homes and communities.
