Jai Johanny Johanson – known as “Jaimoe” and a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band – releases his debut studio album with Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band on December 20th. Jaimoe says Renaissance Man shows an evolution from the r&b and soul-rock sounds that the band is known for in their live sets.
“This album is completely different from our two previous live albums. The band has evolved in different ways. From bebop with no vocals, to vocals and now three horns,” Jaimoe says. “This is our first studio album. It’s real simple. Everyone can enjoy it.” Not shying away from his Allman roots, Jaimoe has included a soulful cover of “Melissa,” which is available to stream.
