Re: [Harp-L] cool horn band w/harp
I asked Jackson if they were playing near Savannah this year, but Atlanta is as close as they are going to get. Looks like an October road trip for me. Somehow I missed them here in Savannah this spring.
I've got both of their albums and they get a lot of play time here at our house. Not a bad or ho-hum cut on either one.

> as the guy who started this post and actually saw the band live, I would like to say that Jackson did a fantastic job of playing lines with the horns when he could and using nicely tweaked effects when comping behind them - - I should have mentioned that and I don't think any of the youtubes do him justice. Tasty harp in a horn band is a good thing we should all support. I played in a horn band for years (I MISS it!!) and I'm pretty familiar with the challenges. Jackson will only get better. His sister the vocalist is THE REAL DEAL- her supermodel looks sort of get in the way of her amazing vocal chops (she sounds like our old singer Sharrie Williams) but that is probably a good problem to have at this stage of her career...let's hope some 'producer' doesn't pull a Joss Stone on her----I hope she can keep it real. I'd go hear them again any time I got the chance!
