      Hey Thanks. I finally got time to check out what you do. cool. You can wear a lot of hats. You have some good songs. The “live” looks like a lot of fun. That’s good. I hope you can do a lot of gigs. Even though I love making records, it’s still the “live” that gives me “the jolt.”

      Happy summer to you,

    I really like the “Brandy” and Once Upon A Time. Do you do those songs live? The bands sound so different. Both really good but different. When does your next row of concerts start?

    “Talking to the Rain”

    I’m captured by this cd now, every listening the depth deepens and I drown in the musical now.
    Thank you for the CD!! My appreciation is years late and the “Thank You” for it at the time is nothing compared to the gratitude I have for listening to it now! I did not realize what a gift it was at the time because of your huge loving generosity of a 150 mile lift out of town to my family’s home and test driving an Old Porsche for me before purchase and getting it back home to Santa Barbara without me having a license or even riding back and all on Christmas Eve. I did not know it but I got two classics that day…..

    The music is just “@%#!^$%” amazing Jesse! which for me evokes more detail with every nuance revealed, a subtle discovery that has no end to explore because it relates and matures with each listening and passing time sweetens it, Defined in so few recording to have the ability to refine the listener as the listener discovers and with time re-find that attraction as captivating as it was initially discovered…… a definite class of it own.

    I should have known….

    Hallo Jesse,
    das Konzert in der Pauluskirche war echt super, und es gab auch genügend Klänge von Joe.
    Ich habe die neue CD gekauft, klasse, dass dort auch die Texte stehen.

    Also bis demnächst in Kladow, freue mich schon.

    Best regards helge

    Hallo Jesse, du hast das Publikum im Kunst&Werkhof Großropperhausen und in der Pfarrscheune1713 in Wernswig ein Stück ins Paradies geführt. Ich bewundere deine Energie und deinen vollen Stimmeneinsatz.Das einmalige Sax&Flötenspiel von Joe macht die Musik zu einem unvergesslichem Höhepunkt!

    Wir freuen uns auf dich mit sonnigen GrĂĽĂźen Frank M. Treusein

    Hi Jesse,
    Rob Salzer asked me to contact you about playing (gratis) at our fundraiser for the Gaviota Coast Conservancy on Friday, May 13 during our art reception at Bacara Resort. Rob’s an incredibly busy guy so I told him I would follow up with you. As you might know, our job is to protect the Gaviota Coast from large development projects that threaten the rural character of this special place. We are driven by volunteers and a community that stands behind us. Rob gave me your CD to listen to and it’s amazing. We would certainly be honored if you would care to help promote our cause by playing at our reception. The event is free and open to the public. Bacara gives us the use of the venue (free) and ply us with nice appetizers. Standing Sun is a wine sponsor and Patagonia, Deckers, and several local businesses give us product donations for our silent auction. Funds are raised by the sale of art (very successful in the past 3 years) and the silent auction as well as “suggested donations” for the wine. Please let me know what you think.
    With respectful excitement at the possibilities…..
    Janet Koed

    Hi Jesse,
    just found out that you are pretty often in Berlin. My name is Kirsten and we first met in the late 80s in Frankfurt when I worked with American Airlines. You invited me and my brother Holger to California were we also were introduced to your mother and your brother David. We had the opportunity to stay in your house in Newport which was a great pleasure.
    Maybe you remember…? It would be great meeting you again in Berlin where my daughter lives at the moment.
    PLease send me a mail to get in contact with you- I really would appreciate that !!!!!
    Maybe we can meet again and have a beer together?
    Have a great day,

    Its good to see that you are a successful musician. The last time I heard you perform was with the Newport Breed. Who were the other performers? Bob Patterson?

    Just listened to Constantly in View – so beautiful – reminds me of my nephew, truly. It has been 3 years since we have seen him, but do know he is still going – miss him. Glad I found this song.

    • Admin@JB - September 15, 2017 11:11 pm

      I also have some family members lost “out there.” Glad the song could touch you.

      Best to you.

      Hey Frank,
      Thanks! I just got this today March 4th. I had to cover for somebody in L.A. and then I went to Costa Rica for 2 weeks and then back to L.A. cause the guy didn’t recover yet from an operation and now this Thusday I start a tour of the Czech Republic/ Germany/ and finish in GB. I”ll be back on April 11th and I’ll expect you to save up all the good joke from over a quarter of a year and tell them to me nonstop for about 10 hours at the park. (better bring lunch!) See you then, JB


Have your say
