The back cover of Renaissance Man—the first studio album by the sensational septet Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band—includes a brief dictionary description of the phrase: “a person whose expertise spans a significant number of different subject areas.” For more than four decades countless millions have been wowed by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Jaimoe’s drumming expertise with the mighty Allman Brothers Band but now, with the release of Renaissance Man, several new dimensions of this iconic musician’s supersized talent emerge for the first time.
And that’s just the way Jaimoe likes it. “No one thing determines what I am or who I am,” says the world-class artist originally known to Allmans fans as Jai Johanny Johanson before changing it legally to Jaimoe. “Why stick yourself in one little hole? After awhile you get tired of it. When I go onstage, it’s like the first time I’ve picked up a pair of drumsticks—there must be that challenge. When I don’t feel like that anymore, it’s time to find something else to do.”
