June 11th, 2008 - Arlene's Grocery - New York City, NY - Meshach Jackson
Images and review by Dominick Mastrangelo
Meshach Jackson mixed original songs with some excellent covers at Arlene's Grocery last Wednesday. Performing a solo set, Jackson opened with the cover du jour, Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy", and closed with a killer cover of Radiohead's "True Love Waits". In between there was witty banter as well as songs from his EP Experiments In Drowning including my favorite song "Smile" (mp3). Jackson also gave a bluesy turn to Amy Winehouse's "Rehab", doing far more justice to that song than it deserves.
