You're obviously a Jack fan if you're reading threads dedicated solely to him, but can I just say something:

Jack was the bomb. I can't say that he still is the bomb ( though I'm sure of it ) b/c I have no idea what he's been up to. ..Solo career, I know... But anyone have any tapes or cd's of him as a solo performer? I'd love to hear one.

When he joined the Brothers back in 97, he brought such a breath of fresh air. Oteil helped in this regard, of course, but Jack brought that wicked-slick jazzy tightness to the sound. His electric tune that they started to play in 98 was damn good. I only wish we could've had more.

I enjoy every incarnation of the ABB, especially the current one, but Jack's will always hold a special place in my heart. Good luck brother, you are missed....

He's got three solo albums out that I know of. Steppin' Out came before he joined the ABB. I'm Not Cryin' is on that one, plus the two songs they sometimes did acoustically (Everyday and Weep and Moan). He did an instrumental jazz album just called Jack Pearson a few years ago, he played almost all the stringed instruments. I have that one, it's really cool. Jaimoe guests. And he released a blues duet with William Howse, a harmonica player, at the same time. You can get all three from Kid Glove, and I've seen a few of his live shows traded too.

Jack IS the bomb. I agree. His playing just drives me crazy (in a good way of course) no one plays quite like him. His tone is excellent.

We didn't miss him tonight in Atlanta- he was there!!!! Dreams, Mountain Jam (pt 2) and Southbound! The latter two with all three guitarists. If you like Jack, you'll want to hear this.

Jack, Derek and Warren.....hopefully there were some tapers there. Always liked Jack playing Dreams.

I did not see the Jack Pearson incarnation of the ABB. I did meet him on Saturday at the Cotton Club in ATL and heard him play and he was fantastic. He plays the guitar as if he were tying his shoes. There are not many guitarists that can do that, and he can build a sollo and keep going and going and going. It was unreal, and all the while smoking a cigarette or slipping a hand into his pocket to get the slide. He probably could have ordered a pizza at the same time.

Jacl Pearson, You owe me about $15,000.00 for calling my son and telling him to destroy all of my guitars and amps after hearing you play. I cant see how to play that good in my lifetime. Please write a check !!!


Peace and Love,

John H

I thought that was really funny. Jack smoked a couple of cigarettes, and sometimes he would keep soloing while holding them between his fingers! I guess he wanted extra points for degree of difficulty.

Marley,

If there wa a category in the OLYMPICS for "ease" of playing guitar..Jack would be at a 10.1 in points. Incredible musician. Additionally, Jack did not play any big brand name instruments and I looked at his pedals and amp set up and he appeared to be playing through solid state equipment. I don't understand.

Enjoyed playing with you on Sunday in Piedmont Park. It's something I have wanted to do since I was 17 years old. I'm 47 now. I am primarilly an electric player, however I bought a cheap acoustic for the Sunday jam. I am learning the nuances of the acoustic guitar.

Hope to see you again.

Peace and Love,

bluedad (John Howard)

I don't rmember ever seeing Jack smoking ( cigarettes ) when he was with the Brothers...

I finally got to listen to the 9/24 show! You lucky bastards that were there got to experience some great stuff! Jack just absolutely ballooned his Dreams solo into a crescendo of colors. I love how he kept it simple and soft in the beginning, then just let it rip. I think Derek has been trying to get where Jack is at right now with that dimension of his sound. Derek will ultimately far exceed that cuz of his talent and heart, of course, but you gotta love how Jack really paved the way back in 97-98 for Derek to come in not be too much of a shock with his jazzier approach...

Was it only Jack and Warren on Mt. Jam? That was more subdued, but excellent nonetheless!

It was all three of them on Mountain Jam. I'm pretty sure Jack smoked onstage in both senses with the ABB as well, I'm not sure where else I'd have seen it and I knew he did.

I'm not sure if jack smoked a cigartette on 9/24 with the ABB or if he dropped ashes/butts on the floor or used an ashtray. I know he smoked the guitar. I hope the Brothers take the next step in the concert experience and video all of their shows. It would not have to be a Live at the Beacon type video/DVD, just a simple video of the performance.

Maybe not every show, but videotaping several throughout a tour is a great idea, either for webcasting or for copying and sales...

Now I watched Jack play at the Cotton Club and I know that he does not rush anything he does. While listening to "Dreams" from the Fox, Jack is playing some octaves on his guitar and all of a sudden he is playing slide. I watched Jack pull ot his slide on Sat afternoon as if he was fishing for a buffalo penny in his pocket and I just don't see how he got the slide out in time to come back to improvise on the head chord in the song.

He must have been in a hurry.

God ...what a great guitarist.

The only show i have with Jack is his last. And what a great job he did. The setlist he picked out was so strong and, it being the first time i'd heard him, I recognized the power he gave to the band. It was great. Jack is great, no question about it. Jack, You ARE Missed...
