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 Just Got In From Texas - Jack Rowell Jr.

Jack Rowell, Jr. is a blue-eyed, soulful blues singer with blazing guitar licks to match. Blues legend, Albert King, once said about Jack, "He is one bad white boy who can flat sing and play the blues!" Jack began his professional career at the age of 15 in The Debuts ("If I Cry") with partner, Jimi Jamison (Survivor), who were signed with Atlantic Records and toured with The Buckinghams, Mitch Ryder and Roy Orbison. Since then, Jack has played with or opened for national artists such as Rufus Thomas, George Jones, Ace Cannon, Pinetop Perkins, The Gentrys of "Keep on Dancin", "Cinnamon Girl", Carl Perkins, Delbert McClinton, Jerry Lee Lewis, Sam Moore (Sam & Dave), Felix Cavaliere (The Rascals), Bowser of Sha Na Na, The Shangrilas, The Tokens, Martha Reeves, Renaldo Rey, Ben Cauley (Bar Kays), Willie Cobbs, Robbie Turner, Steve Potts, Luther Kent (Voice of Louisiana) and with Memphis and Beale Street greats such as Joyce Cobb, Don McMinn, James Govan, Herman Green, Sonny Williams, Noki Taylor, Bill Marshall, Jack Holder and more. Jack has recorded with The Gentrys, Willie Nelson/Waylon Jennings/Kris Kristoferson/Johnny Cash on Highwaymen II, B. B. Cunningham (of The Hombres/"Let It All Hang Out", "Little Deuce Coupe") and more. Since spring 2010, Jack, with his band TriplThreT, has hosted weekly jams in Memphis ("Thrill at the Grill" or "Thrillagains" on Facebook/Youtube) where the best musicians from Memphis, the Mid-South and the world come together with friends and fans to spread World Boogie. In 2012, Jack has produced a hot Blues CD entitled "Sleeping with the Blues" with hot original songs, hot vocals and hot musicianship by great friends. Engineered by Leo Goff, III, mixed by Jack Holder, and mastered at Ardent Recording Studio by Larry Nix and Kevin Nix, "Sleeping with the Blues" promises to be the next great Blues CD out of Memphis. World Boogie is here and growing fast in Memphis, Tennessee, with Jack Rowell, Jr. and TriplThreT leading the Way! If you like what I’m doing, Like ---Bman’s Blues Report--- Facebook Page!
