Jack Rose Remembered

Jack Rose @ Echoes

There’s a good article called Remembering an Acoustic Artist by Joel Rose (no relation) about Jack Rose, the iconoclastic acoustic guitarist who passed away December 5, 2009.

The article is online at the Philadelphia Inquirer

It also points to a set of memorial concerts with some really great guitarists including Glenn Jones and Thurston Moore.  There’s a show at the Latvian Center in Philly this weekend, another in NYC and a third in London.

Thrill Jockey just released a new album by Jack Rose, Luck in the Valley.  It’s got the rootsy, old-timey sound that Joel Rose writes about.    I prefer the extended modal journeys heard on albums like,  Apocalyps. X

We were fortunate to have Jack Rose play on Echoes and he gave us a great interview a while back.  You can hear a podcast of it.
