I've seen Jack numerous times inside and outside the ABB. I saw him 4 times as a member of the ABB from 1997-1999, and have seen him guest with Warren, Gregg, Derek and others plus seen Jack solo acoustic and as the Jack Pearson Band (multiple). I will admit that I thought he at times took it a little too far out to left field on his solos in the ABB, sometimes more jazzy when a song called for more melodic (or intense). In the times I've seen him sit in with the Brothers or other members of the ABB since, he plays more ABB style and in the pocket to these ears (if that makes any sense).

I don't really share the idea that Jack brought more Duane back to the band or that the Jack/Dickey lineup was the most like the original.

To me there are certain songs that actually got back to the original sound with Warren & Derek. The opening to Whipping Post, the guitar bridge/solo in the middle of Midnight Riders (and Gregg back at organ on that one), Derek's harmonica sounding slide on Don't Keep Me Wondering, parts of Dreams, and others. I feel that we got that original sound more than other lineups including when Jack was in the band (derek & warren do plenty during their solos that are not what Duane & Dickey would have done but that gives the current lineup some originality too).

I was blown away by Jack at the Gregg Tribute. Sorry he has such hearing issues. The more he does with the ABB or members of the ABB in the future is a great thing to me.

I am convinced Pearson's presence in Gregg's band during a solo show in Vt in 2006 had huge influence on how stirring Allman himself performed

And I can't forget how good Jack was on Gregg's Searchin for Simplicity record. He had a great, old-school tone on that record.

Can I also suggest what a great addition to the band was Wet Willie's Jimmy Hall?

I have not seen the full All My Friends video to know if the version of Statesbor Blues is different from the Youtube video that has been release, but in that one, it galls me to see the camera focused on Taj Mahal basically standing around or on other musicians, during Jack's solo, rather than focusing on Jack.

It's dejavu all over again from the old Great Woods video, where the camera is on Dickey playing rhythm which jack is soloing.

Jack doing an electric version of "Little Martha". You can hear the crowd comments.

Love the reaction from a lot of the singers as Jack takes a solo during their performance. the one from Martina McBride during All My Friends says it all! Any band with Jack, Jimmy Hall, & Chuck Leavell would just be sublime!

This is not about Jack's music, but isn't this just precious!

Jack is a very unassuming and tasteful person. The fact that he is not a flashy and in your face type is one of the things I admire about him.

Just bought my tickets for his birthday bash in June. Second time I'll be making the trek to Nashville from central Florida to see him. Anybody else headed to the show?

once again, the beauty of music -- on the shows where the instruments are balanced & there's a good mix/sound -- one of the Dreams from the 3/98 Beacon run is really special, as much because of what the whole band is doing & not just Jack -- it's one of those omgosh moments & mayb what Jai might've been referring to in his quote about JP's playing -- never really heard it that way in the current band & again, that is the beauty of the ABB -- four quite-different guitar players who sounded and sound so good...

Is that Duane's daughter in the picture up there ^? Any significance to the guitar neck (or is that an entire guitar?) that she's holding?

Yes that's Galladriel (sp?). Supposedly the neck had belonged to Duane at some time and Jack had just gaven it to her.

Rusty, that is Galadrielle and Jack is giving her the Fender neck that belonged to her dad. It has her dad's thumb print on the back of the neck where he picked it up while it was still wet with lacquer. Gregg had given it to Jack some years ago as a reminder of who Gregg thought that Jack sounded like. It was very special to Jack, but he felt like it should be in the hands of a family member and is happy that it has returned to a direct descendant of Duane Allman.

Being something of a Jackaholic, having listened to probably 100 different Liz Reed solos I still find something new everytime. Some of them I forget just how unbelievable they are. Discovered 3/21/98 recently, that's a killer. Also 6/30/98, at least according to my itunes library, has the longest jack solo of all :-) One chord, and somehow Jack finds an infinite variety of ways to jam it out. He is tapped into something beyond licks and scales... it's just pure, straightforward melody pouring out of the guitar, I love it. Never get bored of listening to him play.

Can't wait for the opportunity to watch him and hear him with my own ears again soon. Planning a little stateside trip in July, really hoping to get the opportunity :-)

bluedad do you have the exact number of Allman Brother's band shows you have attended? I know you try to make as many as you can. I'm just curious.

My God what a monster job be did on that "All My Friends" show. Just one of the best alive.


I'm watching this right now and as I listen I can't help but think what a perfect match Jack's style is for Steely Dan's music....
