Watch Gregg Allman, Aaron Neville, Herbie Hancock, Bonnie Raitt Perform ‘Midnight Rider’

first_imgThe Neville Brothers invited southern rock gentleman Gregg Allman, blues slide-guitar virtuoso Bonnie Raitt, and jazz-pianist Herbie Hancock to perform in a Cinemax Sessions music special back in 1989. All pioneers of their own kind playing staple songs from each other’s catalogues, the Allman Brothers‘ classic “Midnight Rider” stood out as something truly special.The harmonies between Allman and Aaron Neville are representative of both respective genres, while Allman’s organ playing is gracefully complemented by the playing of a young Hancock. Raitt’s guitar handling proves itself just as admirable.Of course one of Allman’s greatest hits, it’s always nice to see it performed a little differently – and in exceptional company.The entire performance was something to remember. Enjoy this Neville classic, “Tell It Like It Is,” as also performed by the legendary lineup:last_img
