Jackie Greene - Medicine


Discussing the imminent release of Giving Up the Ghost, his fifth album and first on 429 Records, Jackie Greene – singer and songwriter, guitarist and keyboard player, acoustic solo artist and electrifying band leader – hesitates to spell things out too much.

“Could we leave some questions unanswered?” he asks. “So people can make up their own minds about ... Read more in Amazon's Jackie Greene Store

Editorial Reviews

When DIG Music owner, Marty DeAnda, happened into a local Sacramento open mic, he was clearly not expecting to hear anything but a number of marginally talented, local folk-rock musicians. The kid was wispy, brooding and quietly confident with his harmonica cage in place and acoustic guitar at the ready walking quickly toward the microphone and exploding into song, literally freezing the audience. A California native, Greene has honed his skills, diligently working the clubs and blues bars of the local terrain. His talent, poise and song-crafting ability belied his youth. Not only a gifted singer/songwriter, but an accomplished instrumentalist who has mastered the acoustic and electric guitar, harmonica, piano, organ and dobro, Jackie Greene's first release created a buzz. A slice of Americana with influences ranging from Dylan, Springsteen, Son House and Muddy Waters to Tom Waits and Howlin' Wolf. For those who enjoy well crafted, roots music, backed with unconventional wisdom and poetry, Gone Wanderin' demonstrates the capabilities and talent leading a new generation of musicians through the dusty back roads of American Roots Music to the promised land of new and innovative musical expression.

5.0 out of 5 stars Got himself a future March 23, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Blowing a tasty blues harmonica and really filling up the space in between with fluid and rich chords, Jackie Greene plays his way into your hearts and ears. Confidence-that's one thing he has; his voice carries it strongly with the homespun lyrics that pour out in a sensitive tenor. Maybe another Jackson Browne? The urge to catalogue him is immediate-but not as easy as I wanted. The harmonica was vintage Dylan-and maybe Neil Young. The same for the guitar: on an acoustic, he looks as though he had been on stage for years, especially with the furious rhythm he sets on several songs. Who did something like that...Buddy Holly? Maybe. Where did he get that maturity? Something like Waylon as a young man...and he finger-picks ballads ("Gracie") like Willie did before he went grizzled and gray. But Jackie is skinny-has a mop of dark hair that sits under a porkpie hat-and looks like someone ought to take him home and keep him for a while.
He can pull up to a keyboard set and proceeded to ripple as fine a boogie-woogie cabaret piano as Billy Joel would do-and yes, the harp is still clamped and honking. No fooling: this is why those lessons you quit in spite of your parents' pleas were valuable. He's also quite adept at bluegrass banjo, electric guitar, and a Hammond B-3 too, but that's on the CD. And it rocks-with good licks and rough-and-ready stuff. "Tell Me Mama, Tell Me Right" just slides ever so gracefully under your shuffling feet, "Mexican Girl" has Jackie torn between love and destiny, "Down in the Valley Woe" goes aloft with a fast-paced crescendo, "Cry Yourself Dry" means you just closed the bar, and "Freeport Boulevard" is where the action's at for a hot night. Now, let me get back to the CD; is he a western Van Morrison? Maybe he came from the days of Poco? Just can't help comparing him...and most likely, he's gonna be just fine being himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars The talented Mr. Green August 18, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Like many other reviewers, my first exposure to Jackie Green came earlier this year when I saw him open up for Jonny Lang in Anaheim, CA. Though Jonny Lang delivered an amazing show and exhibited why he is considered one of the most talented guitar players on the planet, Jackie Green would have been worth the price of admission by himself. He plays with a raw energy that grabs you on the very first note. His music is a combination blues, folk, and good old fashioned rock-and-roll, and his play on the acoustic guitar, piano, and harmonica will astound you. Buy this record. Buy all of Jackie Green's records. And if you have the chance to see him live, don't miss it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary November 19, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Jackie Greene opened for B. B. King last night here in Seattle. First off, you've got to figure that any twenty-two year old who can snag an opening spot for the world's greatest living guitar player (according to Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Guitar Players of All Time") has to have something special.
And, trust me, he does. I'm not even a blues/folk fan (Smashing Pumpkins all the way, baby), but Greene has mindblowing talent. He's credited with songwriting, vocals, acoustic and electric guitar, piano, harmonica and banjo in his liner notes - and he plays them all with the ease of an old pro. His talent as a songwriter alone should earn him immense praise.
As someone else said, Jackie Greene blows Johnny Lang totally out of the water in the Young White Kids Doing Blues competition.
I - along with a whole lot of others, judging from the line to buy CDs and have them signed after his set - am expecting great things from Mr. Greene.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!! November 19, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Jackie Greene opened for B.B. King last night in Seattle. The King of Blues!! (That should really say something about this kid right there!) None of us had heard of him before. He doesn't even look like he needs to shave, much less be able to drive -- just a skinny, almost beatnik-looking kid. But, wow, can he play!! Like others said -- harmonica with either the guitar or keyboard at the same time. Some of his music is very bluesy, while a lot has a definite country sound. After about 40 minutes playing, he received a standing ovation and performed an encore song (not yet released!), when all of us were there to see B.B.! We could have listened to him all night, he was that good! We're ordering his CD today! He has a serious future in front of him -- just glad we got to see him before he makes it big! We'll be watching for him!

5.0 out of 5 stars The real deal August 12, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is Greene's second album. Although I personally don't think it's as strong as Rusty Nails (his first) or Gone Wanderin (his 3rd) it is, nonetheless, amazing. There's a tendency to try to define this guy by relating him to other artists (Dylan, Waits, Henley, Greg Allman, etc.). That doesn't give you the true story - Jackie does use elements that seem to be made up of the best-of-the-best but he has his own sound, and his own style - it's just hard to describe. I've exposed this record to a lot of diverse folks who like a lot of different type of music - everyone, without exception, has loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true artist. January 26, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I had the good fortune of seeing Jackie play live last week as Jonny Lang's opening act. It was amazing, simply put. I have never seen someone move from instrument to instrument with such ease and fluency. He was completely alone on stage, with no backup band or even another rhythm guitar player, and to tell the truth, he didn't need anyone else. The songs were wonderful. The lyrics - all of which he wrote - range from a light sing-along style to deep and impactful poetry on music. I bought his CD immediately.
"Gone Wanderin'" is truly one of the best CD's I have ever heard. It opens with the song the CD was named for, a light but wistful tune that could have come straight out of the Great Depression. "By the Side of the Road, Dressed to Kill" and "Gracie" are stunningly poetic ballads that could tear your heart out if you let them. The last track on the CD is a live one with Mick Martin and the Blues Rockers, which is I appreciate all the more after actually seeing Jackie play live.
Many people have compared Jackie Greene to Bob Dylan or other epic folk-rock singers of the past, but Jackie can stand alone and do well without these comparisons. He's just himself, and that's so much better than being "the next ______." He is a true artist.
