Weekday shows at the Beacon can often be hidden gems, and this Monday night spectacular is the perfect example! Full of talented guests and deep jams, the second set in particular is out-of-control good, as the ABB continue to raise the bar at the Beacon with every show.

The first set started off with the second “Sailin’ 'Cross The Devil’s Sea” of the run, pleasing fans of the band’s 90s output. The dreamy instrumental “Egypt” reached new heights here, better than any version in years. Keyboardist John Ginty and guitarist/Yankee legend Bernie Williams joined in for a sultry “Who’s Been Talking” that will surely rank up there in “Best Version Ever” conversations about that tune.

The second set is where the band reached another level, another gear, making this show one for the ages. Ginty returned for Miles Davis’ “Spanish Key” along with sax master Bill Evans, and the ABB pushed the envelope of jazz-rock fusion on this one. Evans stayed on for “Soulshine” and “Dreams,” adding a lot to excellent versions of both and instantly earning a place in the Special Guest Hall Of Fame.

And that was just the first half of the second set! Energized by Evans’ appearance, the band tore through epic versions of “Black Hearted Woman” and “Rockin’ Horse” before an all-consuming “Les Brers” finished the set in style.

Just when you thought they couldn’t top that, a super-sweet “Melissa” and a ripping “One Way Out” with Devon Allman on Duane Allman's goldtop guitar made for a great double-decker encore. What a show!
