Warren Haynes is famous for leading a combo that stretches the musculature of Southern rock riffs as far as they’ll go onstage (that’d be Gov’t Mule), and for lending his note-bending licks to such godfathers of jamming as The Allman Brothers Band and The Dead. So you wouldn’t necessarily expect to hear him deliver a track like “Your Wildest Dreams,” a slow-burning, 6/8 soul ballad on this year’s solo effort Man in Motion that gives his surprisingly supple vocals room to breathe. But Haynes’ first album under his own name in nearly 20 years doesn’t fall in line with the retro soul revival. The material is nearly all original and not stylized with the syntax of the ’60s, and the playing — handled by George Porter Jr., Ivan Neville, Ian McLagan and other R&B heavyweights — feels like a more accomplished and contemporary outgrowth of that era’s raw attack. Haynes & Co. will be the first to play Nashville’s newest bigger-than-a-club, smaller-than-an-arena space. —JEWLY HIGHT
