It was the worst Nashville winter in years and as the Jack Pearson Trio began to play it was snowing again. Mayor Dean had urged everyone to stay off the roads that night but for Jack's loyal fans that meant nothing.
Jack had recently graced the stage of the Ryman, sitting in with the Tedeschi Trucks band. The “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed” they played was especially beautiful. But that is perfectly understandable given the years Jack spent as a lead guitar player for the Allman Brothers. He has played with an impressive list of artists from Earl Scruggs to Greg Allman. Chet Atkins called him “very sophisticated” and Greg Allman says he “Is the Tops”.
And that snowy night in Nashville he played his heart out for his loyal fans that braved the weather to turn out for him, with that sophisticated “Jack Pearson” style. Going from rip-roaring rock, to intense blues, to laid back jazz in a display of musicianship that illustrated what Greg Allman said....
Jack Pearson is Tops”
