Though his passing in 2017 has left a vast musical space that can never truly be filled, “The Midnight Rider: Gregg Allman’s 75th Birthday Jam” marks a remarkable valedictory and memorial to a true giant of American music, now and forever. Born December 8, 1947 in Nashville, TN, Allman was undoubtedly among rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest and most significant artists, his soul-fired and utterly distinctive voice still one of the defining sounds in all of American music. From his founding role in the one and only Allman Brothers Band to his long and storied solo career, Allman consistently proved himself to be an iconic singer/songwriter and exceptional practitioner of the American blues tradition. The award-winning author of such modern standards as “Midnight Rider,” “It’s Not My Cross To Bear,” “Dreams,” and “Whipping Post,” Allman accrued a remarkable list of honors over his five decade musical journey, including the Allman Brothers Band’s 1995 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award at the 54th Annual GRAMMY® Awards. Allman detailed his brilliant career in 2012’s critically acclaimed, New York Times best-selling memoir, My Cross To Bear, chronicling a truly astonishing life burdened by unimaginable loss, alcohol and drug addiction, told with clear-eyed wisdom and sharp hindsight.
