Indeed. I would love to have 50% of the talent he has at playing the guitar, he is amazing.

Thanks for posting the link.

Jackie P has blown me away for years, I have more to add! His jazz playing is so beautiful and fluid, it's amazing. It is really highlighted in this video, particularly being able to play it like that on an acoustic.

I think if Duane had more time his playing would have grown (not that it wasn't extremely grown and developed by the time of his death) and probably headed in a bit more jazzy direction. I would think he might sound like a combo of Jack and Derek's styles of playing. Which would be hard to beat.

Very much agreed, Ryan. I think you have it dead-on.

Like many of you, I've sat and listened to Jack in small venues. Watched his hands move, seemingly without effort. Floating. Like Derek. And the only word I have for it is, "surreal." You sit there, with maybe 20 people, and listen to what possibly be the best there is. What possibly may be the best there's ever been. Not in New York, or London, or L.A., or Nashville. But locally, with a few friends and a beer. And it's hard to absorb the moment.

And then you sit around and talk to this brilliant, gifted gentleman. And he's just like in the video. Just another guy. Very surreal, sometimes. Fun every time.

A very talented man of such magnitude we hardly see this kind of talent anymore and above all that his talent is out shined by Jack just being himself one of the most honest and true friends I have ever had he is truly blessed by the spirit....

I was living in Florida in 1998, and I went on the net the day of the show and scored 3rd row center for the Jack/Dickey lineup in Jacksonville at the Moran Theatre. What a great show! Dreams...need I say more?
Dru Lombar sat in for One Way Out.
Next show, I think I'll request Jack sit in for a 3 Guitar Army thing...

if you've never seen JP with Lee Roy Parnell (Jack started out on the road with LR as a young'un) you dont know Jack

Kevin and I saw them together at a little biker's club in Huntsville, they rocked out a few ABB tunes, Dimples, OWO, it was surreal...

The one word I keep reading or hearing regarding Jack's playing is : effortless. Freak of nature,whatever you want to call it the man makes it sound so good and look so simple at the same time. Saw Jack & band from the front row at JFD a few years back, what a treat . Tuned up with Duane's riff from The Weight straight into Little Martha, I had tears in my eyes.

Very cool interview. Thanks so much for sharing. The first time I ever heard him play, I was just floored. The man is smooth and fluid and classy and just great!

I hear it more like somewhere between Jack and Warren. Duane and Derek's sound and style of play just are not similar. From a sound and style angle, Warren is the closest to Duane that the ABB has had.

Jack has a style all of his own and can play it all so well. we are blessed to have had him with the ABB.

Nice post. Dang, what it must have been like to see Dickie/Jack and have Dru, rest his soul, on one stage. That would be intense.
Jack and Lee Roy P. wouldn't be a bad gig to see either.
