Guitarist, Jack Pearson, is probably best known for his blues/rock lead and slide guitar playing as a member of The Allman Brothers Band from 1997 to 1999. But he has achieved guitar master status in other genres as well.
Often singled out solely as an electric blues slide player, Jack is just as adept in many other musical styles and is able to take each of those styles to another level with his guitar.
Artists he has worked with include Delbert McClinton, Lee Ann Womack, Groove Holmes, Faith Hill, Jimmy Smith, Tracy Nelson, Shelby Lynne, Dan Penn and others too numerous to mention.
His songs have been recorded by such artists as Gregg Allman, Tracy Nelson, The Allman Brothers Band, Jimmy Hall, Gov\'t Mule and Lee Roy Parnell.
Jack\'s guitar playing has been featured on studio albums by Gregg Allman, Bobby Blue Bland, Jimmy Buffett, Chris LeDoux, Billy Montana, The Bacon Brothers and Jimmy Hall, among others.
His versatility and outstanding musicianship can be heard not only on \"Do What’s Right,\" but also on three other Candlefly releases available on CD Baby...his first solo CD \"Step Out!,\" the instrumental album “Jack Pearson” and an acoustic blues duo titled \"William Howse & Jack Pearson.\"
Released in 2007. There are nine songs within eight tracks providing over 68 minutes of music on this disc. All of the songs are written/co-written by Jack with the exception of Rev. Gary Davis’\"Oh Glory How Happy I Am.\" The players include Dennis Wage (Hammond organ, keyboards), Elizabeth Pearson (bass) and Doug Belote (drums). The performances on this CD represent what Jack has been doing live for the last few years. Some of the song titles may be familiar, but the arrangements have been changed and extended with longer solos and improvisations.
A sampling of reviews of \"Do What’s Right\"...
“Brilliantly composed, performed, and recorded...a monumental testatment to Pearson’s artistry.”
“...a red hot album that features some ultra-fine guitar work... There’s a true spirit swirling around the music of this record, and it comes through loud and clear. It’s the kind of music that just makes you feel like smiling.”
