Whilst on holiday in the US I stumbled on Jackie Greene's CD Gone Wanderin'. Jackie is a talented young (about 25) singer songwriter who plays guitar, piano and harmonica with an ability and character that belies his young age. He has often been compared to Dylan and Waits although his singing style is not like either. If you like Ryan Adams, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Steve Earl, the blues or country you are likely to like this guy. "Gone Wanderin'" is a great place to start with Jackie's stuff although both this CD and "Rusty Nails" are also brilliant. After buying one CD you can buy all his other albums and the DVD just as I have… Give the guy a break and buy this CD or one of the others before he becomes famous.

Jackie Greene continues to evolve... and impress 12 Oct. 2005
By Jer - Published on Amazon.com
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. Tracks such as "Emily's In Heaven", that lament the loss of a loved one, and "Write A Letter Home", that exhibits the very definition of being lonesome only prove that Jackie's talent isn't prohibited to cheer alone:

Eleven different doctors and not one had a clue

They rushed her to emergency, but there was nothing they could do

They said she had a weak heart, she'd always been that way

I said she just gave too much of it away

Now Emily's in Heaven, and I'm awake in bed

Sometimes how I wish, the Good Lord took me instead

But I guess the good die young and life just isn't fair

But Emily's in Heaven she'll be waiting for me there

Some tracks are better than others, but all 13 tracks provide the listener with something new. There's no filler; if you skip the end of the album, you'll only miss out on some of the best songs on the album in "Write A Letter Home" and "Everything to Me". Jackie Greene doesn't try anything particularly unique or groundbreaking on "Sweet Somewhere Bound", as his greatest strength lies in the simplicity of his music. These aren't complicated songs. Instead, Jackie exhibits a variety of emotions as he does what he excels at; making great, listenable music that's simple to understand and invariably gets your foot tapping.

Jackie doesn't try for anything particularly new or different because he doesn't have to; riffs from his blues guitar or notes from his harmonica speak volumes more than many songs. Every song, every note, is packed with emotion and rarely fails to pull you into the stories he tells.

Jackie Greene has surfaced in Sacramento as one of the most entertaining and exciting artists in the area, and I'm personally looking forward to seeing him continue to evolve and emerge. I highly recommend him to any fan of folk, country, blues or heck, music in general. You'll love this guy.

another great record 28 July 2004
By music lover - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Put the feelin in it Jackie! 29 Jun. 2005
By R. Hosler - Published on Amazon.com
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.

A New Day To Be Born 18 Feb. 2007
By Lee Armstrong - Published on Amazon.com
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!

Sweet somewhere found 3 Sept. 2005
By L. A. Jennings - Published on Amazon.com
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!
