CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

I Feel Good - J J Jackson

Jerome Louis "J.J." Jackson [AKA "Leo Robinson" in Brasil] (born November 8, 1942, Gillett, Arkansas) is an American soul/R&B singer, songwriter, and arranger. His singing style is as a belter. Jackson started out as a songwriter and arranger for "Brother" Jack McDuff, Jimmy Witherspoon, and the Shangri-Las, among others. He also composed the Pretty Things' 1966 hit single, "Come See Me." He is perhaps best known for the bombastic soul hit "But It's Alright", which after its 1966 release became one of the best known dance music tunes of the decade. The single was recorded in the United Kingdom, featuring some of Britain's top jazz musicians of the day, including Terry Smith on guitar, Dick Morrissey on tenor sax and John Marshall on drums, and who would later make up his backing band for the following two albums. Jackson currently lives in Jacksonville, Florida.
