Jimmy Herring Band Jimmy Herring, longtime sideman in bands such as Aquarium Rescue Unit, The Allman Brothers Band and the Dead (and current gunslinger for Widespread Panic) is making his bandleader debut on this tour – and what a band it is. Along with Herring, JHB features drummer Jeff Sipe (Aquarium Rescue Unit), Blue Note Records' own Greg Osby (named by none other than legendary Village Voice jazz writer Frances Davis as one of the best blowers in the business) on saxophone, keyboardist Scott Kinsey (Tribal Tech) and Allman brother Oteil Burbridge on bass. Those who've seen the guitarist in person know that Herring's style – a pepperpot of raga-inspired rags, clean, piercing runs and free improvisation – ought to accent his jazzbo-jam backing band to a T.
