news


Here is a list of things that have happened on the JBJ/BPV tour dates so far:


Everyone but Jake R. ate tacos in Knoxville


Jake R. yelled at the band for being late for load out and then apologized


Jake R drove everyone back to Memphis after the Nashville show and then pulled over 15 minutes outside Memphis so Greg could piss


We decided never to play “I Can’t Stand the Rain” ever again


The band left Jake R. for dead in a sleeping bag on the floor of an empty apartment in Jackson Mississippi on Saturday morning


Our tell-all book will sell so many more copies than Motley Crue’s  “The Dirt”


xoxo – JBJ

We are deeply saddened by the news of Jay’s passing. We loved Jay’s music and were thrilled to see a hardworking young Memphis musician get his due in the last few years. He will be missed.

Friends,


Here are the first officially released teasers for the upcoming feature film “Open Five” directed by Kentucker Audley and written by Kentucker and myself. The film stars Shannon Esper, Genevieve Angelson, Kentucker Audley, Amy Seimetz and myself, and was photographed by Joe Swanberg with additional help from David Lowery. The film contains performances by the band and will premiere in Spring 2010. If you have a blog, feel free to post one or all of them if it feels right. Email them to your friends. Share them with the world.


- Jake

Willie Mitchell via last.fm



Willie Mitchell’s effect on American popular music has been enormous and his direct influence on my music is so obvious that upon listening to our first E.P, the man himself jokingly told me I owed him money. When Jump Back Jake started, the idea was to sound as much like the Hi-Rhythm section as possible with no apologies. The horn lines on the tag of “Treasure” were directly inspired by the arrangement he did on O.V. Wright’s “Nickel and a Nail,” and we remain to this day obsessed with the drum sounds he got on Al Green and Ann Peeble’s records among others. I once had occasion to see Willie leading a band who was backing up one of his new artists. Already in his 80s, he waved his cane in the air threatening that if the guitarist couldn’t stay in tune he’d come up there and keep him in tune. He was a force of nature and will be missed by everyone who cares about the art of recorded music. Another Memphis Trumpet player, Mickey Gregory, once told me that when Willie played, you felt him rather than heard him. Luckily we can all still listen to Soul Serenade and feel Willie Mitchell when we need him.

Thanks for writing on my wall. I'll forgive you, so long as you make every effort to learn quickly! ;) If you need help/advice, just ask. It can be really confusing at first, at least for a listener - probably more so for an artist. If you haven't already figured it out yet, it's best that you demonstrate patience and hold yourself back from uploading ANY more songs until at least one posts, then feed them to us slowly (and maybe I can get a first bump on the next one). You'll do far better that way. Also, communicating with the listeners goes a long way toward good will and generous bumping. Welcome to t61. Hope you have fun and success here!
