Leon Russell, Elvis Costello, Gregg Allman, Elton John & Leon Russell, Neko Case, Punch Brothers, Jeff Bridges and Ralph Stanley were among the musicians who participated in T Bone Burnett Talking Clock Review last Saturday in Boston Wang Theatre. The show was based on tour with Bob Dylan Rolling Thunder Revue, which Burnett credits as his first job in the music industry. The various musicians-most of who have worked with Burnett to some extent, each performed in short, is a frequent collaboration-heavy. A continuous band of support, consisting of musicians Burnett as the guitarist Marc Ribot and drummer Jim Keltner, supported different musicians at various locations throughout the night.
The show opened with Costello and Burnett show on stage together “Brilliant Mistake,” a song recorded for the pair in 1986 the album King of America. Later that night, Gregg Allman made his first public appearance since being a liver transplant last spring. The founder of the Allman Brothers performed a few songs with the group home issue, including a version of “Midnight Rider” that featured Neko Case on vocals auxiliaries. Allman, who played acoustic or electric guitar on every song, also played Sleepy John Estes “floating bridge” and Muddy Waters’ I Can not Get Satisfied “out of his neighbor, Burnett-produced the album Low Country Blues.
Other highlights of short performances by bluegrass veteran Ralph Stanley (who scored another later in public life through his work with Burnett on the soundtrack to O Brother) and the Punch Brothers. In addition, John Mellencamp played a set of blues songs of his work with famed producer, while Jeff Bridges slipped into his character of Bad Blake Crazy Heart for a few songs.
The night closed with Elton John and Leon Russell on dueling pianos featuring songs from their new collaborative album. Allman returned to the stage to sing with the masters of piano on “Gone in Shiloh.” New York’s Beacon Theater will host the review on Wednesday. The show will also mark the return of Gregg Allman in the room for the first time since 2009.
