Album Review

For those who attended any concert on the Warren Haynes Band's tour in support of the brilliant Man in Motion, this three-disc package — one DVD and two CDs — is your keepsake. The set features stretched-out versions of all but one track from that album performed live at Austin's Moody Theater in 2011. In addition, his killer sextet offers readings of two tracks from Haynes' first solo album, Tales of Ordinary Madness, a new version of Gov't Mule's "Frozen Fear," and a host of great covers: from Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come" and Jimi Hendrix's "Spanish Castle Magic" to Steely Dan's "Pretzel Logic." Haynes' live band is a crack outfit. There is an augmented guest horn section on two cuts, and Ian McLagan plays guest keys on three. The performance is kinetic, long, engaged, expertly played, and raw. But as fine as these performances are, they highlight the vast differences between studio and live records. The songs from Man in Motion were written as expressions of his life-long love of soul, early funk, and R&B-drenched blues, and reflect their profound influence on him as a musician. They were also written with the great songs Haynes admired in mind: songs that were meant to be played on the radio. They're beautifully constructed, hooky, catchy, and laced with fat grooves. The grooves are still there and they're still fat on Live at the Moody Theater; only they're stretched — with lots of guitar soloing, organ, and sax improvs — to eight-, nine-, ten-, and even twelve-minute jams. As a result, the craft in the MIM songs get a bit lost inside all that killer jamming. That's not a complaint, it's reality. Thankfully, the amazing backing vocals of Alecia Chakour (somebody should sign and record her) and Ron Holloway's tenor sax playing keep the soul in this mix. The only real problem is the inclusion of "Soulshine"; it's on every live record Haynes has ever released. He should get over that tune — everyone else has. The DVD in the set, which offers a visual of the entire show and two bonus rehearsals for "Patchwork Quilt" and "Hattiesburg Hustle," reveal a band that still pulls out all the stops, playing with maximum emotion as well as skill. If another high-quality live offering from Warren Haynes is what you seek, then Live at the Moody Theater will reward you abundantly.

Warren Haynes is a magical musical genius who has amazing passion, soul and heart in all that he does. Everything Warren has delivered is a special treat. Warren Haynes Band is another FANomenial example of that as you will hear in this wonderfull concert that delivers some of the finest, most soulful, bluesy, horny, rockin' blues jazz ever heard. no other way to describe it. warren and the band put everything into what they do, you can hear it and feel it. i had the fortuante opportunity to see them at the beacon theatre in 2011 and see it too. i may need insurance on my warren haynes collection as everything he puts out i buy buy buy! check this one out it is a very high recommend and an investment!!

Someone pick my face up off the floor!

WHB is unbelievable! I just saw them a few weeks ago at HOB. Warren is at his usual best, but the rest of the band is what is so impressive. Alecia Chakour, Nigel Hall, Ron Holloway, etc. are impressive additions and add their own flare to the group. Will be listening to this album for a while.

WOW!!!!!!!!!

A must have for all Warren Haynes fans. Nice cover of one of my favorite Steely Dan tunes. Intensity abounds here folks!
