if you don't have it yet, go download his latest album, "Giving Up the Ghost." money-back guarantee on this one.
and if more validation is needed, take Exhibit A: jackie's been chillin' with phil lesh of late and has been playing along with Phil Lesh & Friends. in fact, here's an article worth reading about how phil and jackie came to be friends.
jackie first hit the bojon radar screen last summer when he opened on the main stage the saturday of the Outlands Music Festival. two chords into his set, he caught our ears, and we've been paying attention ever since.
most recently we caught jackie at a sold out show at the Great American Music Hall, one of the sweetest music venues in San Francisco. the show totally ripped, and to top it off jackie was joined by bob weir and phil lesh for his middle set.
here are a couple vids from the scene:
