    It's a lot more Blues rock than jazz imo.

    I even went back and listened to his first two albums. 110 and Worry No More contains all Blues and it's awesome!

    He has some jazz songs but I like his blues songs.

    His voice is beautiful [live]. He doesn't hold back at all with his singing

    yeah, i can have a great time by myself----but i totally agree with you that its always better when you have someone along with you.

    @shahidah was lauryn hill late when you saw her perform? she sorta has a reputation for being late for her concerts. a bunch of ppl on her facebook page have mentioned how she's often late for her concerts. about a day ago, she released this long statement on facebook explaining that her lateness isn't because she doesn't care and she deeply cares about and appreciates her fans.

    @Ordinary Joel made me a Gary Clark Jr. Stan, the music is so soulful :lawd:

    Ms. Hill has a lot of problems and even after all these years has never been able to look past the damage the industry has done to her. A sad story indeed...

    I think her performance was delayed a bit longer than expected.....after Gary was on stage there was about an hour and 10 min break till she came on the stage. I think she might've been late...and yeah I did see an article about her being late to her ATL performance this past week, also friends have said that she didn't show to a couple performances.

    @shahidah i saw her last night. the show was supposed to start at 8 30, but she didn't start until about 9:40 or so. the DJ played a bunch of classic hip hop songs while everyone waited, so that kept ppl entertained and most ppl didn't seem to get restless.

    she cut her hair, wore a pretty dress and performed for 2 hours and played lots of the hits from mis-education and the score: ready or not, fugeela, killing me softly, ex factor, superstar, everything is everything, and she ended the show with doo wop.------she even sang sweetest taboo by sade----not sure why lol----but it can't be that unusual because when i saw paul mccartney he played one of jimi hendrix's songs.

    i had a great time. didn't get to go with the girl i have a crush on---but i didn't get a chance (waited too long) to ask her either. the good news is another girl at my job who's friends with the girl i like is gonna find out if she's involved with anyone----so there' still a shot for me! :)
