[continued from above]
Jason's a firecracker on stage. I've seen him laugh through an entire set! Saturday he was talking of being a little mellow. That only kept him from flying through the ceiling. He still came into the audience, bounced up and down, and joked about being a rockstar, swinging his arm in a wide circle when he played power chords. He made us laugh and cry. And really, I was choking on my tears through the title song of his soon-to-be-released album.
He plays these groovy, jazzy chords with ease - smooth and flawless. And his voice! He's got the power and the breath to back it up! He throws in a bunch of ad-libs, as if he's writing a song on the spot. Reminds me of sitting in poetry circles with him years ago - an intimate performance. It's like he's sharing his life with us. And like Jillian Speer, he performs barefoot - as if planting himself in the earth's soil. Good man! [tried to get a better angle of his feet, but I didn't want to "distract" his crazy groupie behind me]
Mid-show he remembered to promote his CDs, website and mailing list. Nothing went unsaid or missed. [I can learn from him] He even introduced me and announced my gig date. What a pal.
Because MP3.com is no longer available, I wasn't able to find his #1 song, Miracle, online but you can read lyrics and hear clips on his website. He's even got a journal.
