Here’s some bad cell phone footage of Jack Johnson on his recent (2017) stop at the St. Augustine Amphitheater in St. Augustine, Florida (Sorry, I was too busy watching and listening to try and film him!) Fantastic concert, as always! Here’s Jack doing a cover of Sublime’s Bad Fish and Boss DJ.

Can you imagine what this might have been like? This guy didn’t have to. Pretty magical moment.

Breakdown

I hope this old train breaks down
Then I could take a walk around
And see what there is to see
Time is just a melody

With all the people in the street
Walk as fast as their feet
Can take them
I just roam through town

And though my window’s got a view
Where the frame I’m looking through
Seems to have no concern for me now
So for now

I need this
Old train to breakdown
Oh, please just
Let me please breakdown

Well, this engine screams out loud
Sayin’ the beat gonna crawl westbound
So I don’t even make a sound
‘Cause it’s gonna sting me when I leave this town

And all the people in the street that I’ll never get to meet
If these tracks don’t bend somehow
And I got no time that I got to get to
Where I don’t need to be, so I

I need this
Old train to breakdown
Oh, please just
Let me please breakdown

I need this
Old train to breakdown
Oh, please just
Let me please breakdown

I wanna break on down
But I can’t stop now
Let me break on down

But you can’t stop nothing
If you got no control
Of the thoughts in your mind
That you kept in, you know

You don’t know nothing
But you don’t need to know
The wisdom’s in the trees
Not the glass windows

You can’t stop wishing
If you don’t let go
The things that you find
And you lose and you know

You keep on rolling
Put the moment on hold
The frame’s too bright
So put the blinds down low and

I need this
Old train to breakdown
Oh, please just
Let me please breakdown

I need this
Old train to breakdown
Oh, please just
Let me please breakdown

I wanna break on down
But I can’t stop now

Ones and Zeros – Jack Johnson

November 3, 2013

I’ve always been a fan of surfer/film maker/musician Jack Johnson. Not just his music, but his humble attitude, and the things he’s always stood for. A little over 12 years into his ever-progressing music career, it seems to me that Jack is really hitting his stride. My wife recently picked up his latest offering, From Here to Now (released in September, 2013), and all I can say is- Wow, if you haven’t already, go get this CD! Every track is superb and memorable- super catchy rhythyms and melodies and the kind of lyrics that allow you to have new “ah-ha” moments each time you listen to them.

Always talented and flashing many moments of brilliance over his career (six studio albums, one soundtrack, two live releases and a few EPs), I liken this most recent release to a surfer who has identified the sweet spot on their new board and is working it out in perfect conditions. It leaves you feeling good and creates a moment in time you’ll never forget. I think people will look back on this CD as something particularly special/pivotal for Jack’s career.

This is a live version of one of my favorite songs from the new CD, Ones and Zeros.
