Jerry Jemmott with the Gregg Allman Band

ASKED TO DESCRIBE THE ARRIVAL of veteran session legend Jerry Jemmott in his band, Gregg Allman said, “It was like Jerry coming down from heaven.” Actually, it was a completed circle of sorts, as Jemmott recorded regularly with late guitar god Duane Allman before he formed the Allman Brothers. Credit Brothers bassist Oteil Burbridge and radio DJ Jack Devaney for suggesting Jemmott (BP’s 2001 Lifetime Achievement Award recipient) in 2006. Two weeks after they had him sit in at an Allman Brothers concert, Gregg called Jerry to invite him into his group. Now in his fifth year of touring with the 7-piece unit, the recently-married Jemmott has settled into a new home outside of Jackson, Mississippi, thoroughly enjoying what he calls a life and career rebirth.
