I cannot wait to see him live for the first time.
I have been listening to his albums in preparation and of course I am familiar with his work with Phil Lesh and Friends.
I find his songwriting to be very moving with interesting themes and in one song he references Cassius Clay. On the cd's I have heard, his performance style is honestly sincere.
The Fairfield Theatre also has a venue called the Klein which is a bit larger and hosts acts like the upcoming Dweezil Zappa ($35-$57).
The Fairfield Theatre is Well worth checking out. It is located next to the Fairfield CT Train Station on the New Haven Line of the Metro North Railroad. I catch an express train from Grand Central Station to Fairfield and arrive in 60 minutes. It also has trains returning to GCS after the show, but it takes a bit longer at that time of night without the benefit of express trains.
Fairfield is a quaint little town with good restaurants and it also has reasonable overnight accommodations at the Fairfield Motor Inn (modest but clean). I discovered it because my mother lives in Fairfield.
I can't imagine that he isn't playing at a larger venue in Manhattan. He will be the next time around I am sure.
Has anyone seen a solo Jackie Greene show? I would like to hear about it.
