Mike, I just got back in from Macon, but I've got to unload my truck and take a chill pill. I will say that Jack did more than play at The Cox Capitol Theater yesterday. It was pretty damn special. More to come later...

To answer your question, the show was ridiculously good. It was my favorite among all the Wanee shows last weekend as well as the Brothers in Macon. Now I have to sleep for a week straight as I'm getting too old for this.

I thought it a crime that the venue wasn't even half filled.

As for a review, how about "wow"? That about sums it up. It was a trio last night with Elizabeth on bass (can't recall the drummer, but I enjoyed him quite a bit). I think Jack played every tune on the Do What's Right disc, including a mandolin version of "Oh Glory, How Happy I Am," as well as some other stuff. He played his chambered Tele (I assume it is a G&L), his funky Silvertone-looking guitar for open slide, and a Les Paul that he mentioned was on loan from The Big House. The police officer on hand said it was a 1959, but I don't know for sure. Jack made reference to swapping out the pick-ups and sanding down the neck as a joke. It got a few laughs from the guitar crowd. He also feigned dropping it at one point.

The one downside to his band is I don't think they are the most dynamic. Jack sure is, but the band doesn't always follow him. I've always said that as good as Derek and Warren are, if Butch is having an off night, their best solos will sound only so good. This is only a mild criticism because it is obvious I enjoyed it immensely. I also have major aural fatigue form the last nine days, so take it with a grain of salt.

It also cracks me up how unassuming the guy is. Hell, the warm-up band Lingo (who were okay) had three times the equipment Jack did. He threw a little Fender amp on a folding metal chair and had a tube screamer on the floor, and he just killed it. What strikes me about Jack is how seamlessly he shifts among blues, rock, and jazz. Amazing.

Off for sleep.

Pretty much what blooby said...Jack just KILLED it at Cox Capitol last night. What I was most impressed with was not necessarily Jack's fretboard theatrics, but how he milked tonality out of single notes. Each of the three guitars he played...the Silvertone, his main G&L semi-hollow, and finally the Big House loaner vintage Paul...all had distinctively different tones...and Jack made a point to masterfully manipulate each guitar's tonal capabilities. It was like a frikin' clinic. Just amazing guitar playing. He even played a GORGEOUS, spot-on Little Martha...much to the delight of the Macon crowd. There was one taper in attendance, who I regretfully forgot to talk to...so if anyone knows who he was or has a copy of this show...PLEASE let me know. It was a masterful performance.

Lingo SMOKED the opening set to Jack's show, and as a testament to the crowd response....they sold all the CD's they had on hand. Great musicians, but more importantly, FINE young men. All of them.

David Heyer was on drums. Jack met him through Todd Parks (bass player for Jerry Douglas) I believe. Thanks to all of y'all for a great time, especially Mr. Potter and the Big House folks. Jack did say that he liked the Cox for it's acoustics on stage better than any place he's played in Macon. Hope we get to come back soon. Oh, and thanks to Margo, you're the best.

Mike, great to see you again, bud! We're hoping Jack can come back for a Stay and Play Concert Series show some time later this year.

Mike, I got a good picture of Elizabeth holding my white P Bass. I'll upload my pics within a day or two.

Oh, I'll have to post the picture of me holding the (real) Tractor, too.

Out of all the guitar players on the planet, Jack Pearson is the one that makes me drop my jaw more than any others

I've known that for a long time. This weekend crystallized it

Just an incrdeible musician

Jack is simply the best. Jaw dropping, gut wrenching player an singer. Nicest, humblest man. His wife Elizabeth is just as talented and nice. Got the setlist which they graciously signed. Jack acts like a regular guy, but nothing could be farther from the truth...

I would go see him play any day of the week.

Thank you for an amazing night of music!

I know what you mean his playing hit me the first time i saw him in 1997 with the brothers at the Gorge it reminded me of the early ABB show i saw with Duane.. the melodic off the chart tone and the laid back way he approaches his solos, as for know how he is off the chart.. i know i am prejiduce *sp but i have seen almost all the greats and Jack is the best i have ever seen... i wish more of the world could see him ...

Jack is in a place all his own with me! My first Jack P exposure was 1994 when he played with Gregg Allman & Friends. We went to see them in Greenville Sc the week before the Beacon run started for the ABB. From the first song we were all going "Who the heck is that guitar player?" He was so clean and so subtle but if you listen to the players when listening to live music, he's just unreal! Been a big Phan since that night! Was hoping for a Dreams Friday night cause there ain't no Dreams like a Jack Pearson Dreams!

Friday was my very first ABB show...I'm a longtime fan, just never had a chance to see them...it was an amazing experience...that said, my highlight of the entire thing was hearing Jack play on Liz Reed and Southbound...he moved to a special spot in my head and heart in terms of guitarists I try to emulate...Jimmy Herring and Duane are already there, but Jack got voted in

I'm sad I couldn't stay for Saturday night but hope I get a chance to see him again down this way. Heck, I can be really selfish and ask that he get booked in Columbus, GA...the Loft would be a great venue for Jack
