Jackie Greene - Medicine

Biography

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Jackie Greene continues to evolve... and impress October 12, 2005
By Jer
Format:Audio CD
Jackie's country, gospel and blues influenced folk music continues to evolve here on "Sweet Somewhere Bound", and he produces his best album in his first attempt under his new label, Verve. Jackie's previous album, "Gone Wanderin'", showed promise and had good individual songs, but meshed together badly as an album and suffered from repetition in places.

This album suffers none of these issues. Jackie provides us with 13 tracks on "Sweet Somewhere Bound", all of them listenable and all of them exploring different emotional territory for both Jackie and his listeners.

Jackie is apt in making his listeners both laugh and smile; the album opens with the songs "About Cell Block No. 9" and "Honey, I've Been Thinking About You", both upbeat and cheerful songs that you'll be hard-pressed to dislike.

"Honey, I've Been Thinking About You" is a good benchmark for Jackie; if you're considering getting into his music, listen to this song off his Myspace site or from the samples here on Amazon, as I consider it one of his best and clearly one of the star tracks of the album. Jackie croons about simple love beyond the details of life, and even makes us laugh a bit with lines such as:

Now, I don't really care about your hot-blooded sister

I'm sure there's a man for to love her and miss her

I didn't mean nothing, I just happened to kiss her

But honey I was thinking about you

As talented as Jackie is at making us smile, he's equally gifted with bringing tears to our eyes.

4.0 out of 5 stars another great record July 28, 2004
Format:Audio CD
What a treat to get 66 minutes of new music from this talented musician! More fine songwriting and musicianship on this new record, with a richer sound than his previous releases thanks to the addition of synthesizer on a few tracks. I still wish he'd decrease the amount of slow, sad numbers and increase the lively blues tunes he does so well, but I'm still glad to hear anything this guy does.

5.0 out of 5 stars Put the feelin in it Jackie! June 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I took my girlfriend to see Jewel and was blown away when Jackie Greene opened for her. Jackie is an incredile musician but what made me an instant fan was the raw emotion he puts into his songs. It was just him his acoustic guitar and his harmonica, with the occasional piano.

I must say I was disapointed by this record because it is missing the raw emotion he projects when he plays on stage. Who ever is recording you Jackie tell them to allow you to open up in the studio. It should be noted I have ordered Jackie's other 2 records and I plan on seeing him live twice in July so I'm in no way put off my this record. I'm just dissapointed because I've seen and heard what he'd capabale of.

I'm 25 so I dcon't want to hear that only old people like Jackie.

Rock on.

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Day To Be Born February 17, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After buying "American Myth," I backtracked to "Sweet Somewhere Bound," Jackie Greene's previous set. I like the largely acoustic folk feel of his music and particularly enjoy his playfulness and humor. Of my two favorite tracks, "Honey I Been Thinking About You" is a churning toe tapper with a catchy melody, "I don't really care about the weather outside & I don't want to talk about national pride; All that I need for to be satisfied is a woman who's nothing like me." The title track also has an amazingly memorable melody with Greene's gentle vocals bouncing reflectively between sadness and hope, "Where will you go when the sun goes sinking? Morning brings a new day to be born." Other tracks like the opening boogie "Cell Block #9" & the haunting "Miss Madeleine (3 Ways to Love Her)" are also excellent. This is a strong offering from this promising songwriter & vocalist. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet somewhere found September 2, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Pretty stuff- my local alt station was playing the radio hit that got me to digging and found this CD. Jackie's words flow almost like Dylan "I'm fishin' in a wishin' well" is about as well turned a phrase as Jackson Browne's "I was taken by a photograph of you". I hope you pick this up and give it a listen or ten - the deeper in you go, the deeper it gets until it gets you, too. Enough variety to keep the interest of even the short attention span members of your gang.If you listen to "I didn't mean nothing by kissin' your sister, and honey I was thinkin' 'bout you" without a grin then you might as well donate your funny bone to medical science, 'cause you sure aren't using it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dare I say Dylanesque? January 21, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is my first Jackie Greene CD, and based on my reaction I'm sure I will be adding to the collection. Comparisons to Dylan are probably inevitable. Greene's style of songwriting owes a lot to Dylan, and on the couple of acoustic guitar/harmonica driven numbers on this disk you may find yourself having flashbacks. But Greene's arrangements are deeper and more complex and except for the couple of aforementioned songs, fully fleshed out with a full band. Make no mistake, the guy has developed his own voice and isn't simply a clone. Great range of themes here on this disk, too, from playful to songs of lost love, and of a friend who died too young. This guy definitely deserves success, and I hope he finds it!
