THE NEW JACK HIPPIES
Bluesguy's Birthday Jam

They had come to pay tribute to a Texas legend on his 50th birthday. It was quite a concert! Gloria Edwards, 'the soul queen of Texas', sang one of Guy's songs. Calvin Owens, who was B.B. King 's band leader for 30 years, couldn't wait to blow trumpet on one of Guy's 14 chord blues ballads, and was introduced so spontaneously that the local radio jock couldn't get to the stage in time for a proper introduction. E.P. Vallejo, Kool B, Jimmy Deen.... They were all there - rockers, rappers, bluesmen, folkies and every type of musician, entertainer and songwriter one could imagine. Guy Schwartz had worked with them all, and anyone could tell that he was enjoying the party!

Features performances by
Calvin Owens, Gloria Edwards, Kool B, Jimmy Deen, Sandy Hickey, Rick Lee

BLUESGUY &
THE NEW JACK HIPPIES
Blue Jack Hippies
Guy Schwartz' first blues album, filled with blues, rhythm & blues, and rockin' blues!

"Hailing from the Houston area, Bluesguy Schwartz and the New Jack Hippies soundly continue the tradition with a CD full of good rocking and low-down blues plus inspired R&B. Featuring guest vocalists Gloria Edwards (hell of a voice!) and Heath Spencer Phillip, the New Jack Hippies deliver a nice mix of 12 tunes on Blue Jack Hippies. Through nicely wrought harmonies and capable lead work by Guy Schwartz, these guys (and one girl) raise some Texas dust. Song highlights include the contemporary blues of "Under Suspicion," Ms. Edwards's very cool blues vocals on "Ain't Got Time for the Blues," with some interesting horn arrangements which fits the song like a well worn glove, and their tribute song to Houston radio station KPFT, "Sunday is Our Time (for the Blues)." ... Mr. Phillip belts out "Since My Baby Went Away" with an honest emotion rarely found these days. A novelty tune in "Right Now" sounds like the tune was recorded off an antique radio from the 40s. Very interesting. All tunes were written or co-written by Schwartz. Nicely done."
- Bruce Coen, Blues Bytes Magazine (Top Ten List - 2001)

What do you get when you cross the Queen of Texas Soul with Texas' premiere Blues Rock Hippie Jam Band?
Just 2 weeks home from their 45 city tour in the winter of 2001-2002, the New Jack Hippies and Gloria Edwards played in tiny Seabrook by the Bay, and rocked the boathouse! It's all live and spontaneous, even when the band is interrupted by Santana on a loud jukebox - and then chooses to jam with the Santana song!

"It was a cool day in a warm Houston, Texas winter when Michael Farber and Kingfish Keith hosted Texas wildman guitarslinger Little Joe Washington for a live webcast on The Hour of Truth and Texas Music at Houston's earthwire.net's performance space and web-radio station. Guy Schwartz & The New Jack Hippies were there to try to keep up with Little Joe!
The results were magic! This is spontaneous Texas blues, performed by a master showman and a band of Texas blues veterans."

Old Brown Eyes Has Left The Building

"Counting Jackie Wilson, Bruce Springsteen, Frank Sinatra, Jimi Hendrix, Dwight Yoakum and Elvis Presley amongst his major influences... (Heath is) a uniquely dynamic, high-energy entertainer, with a big voice and an equally large vocal range. The fact that he's one of two or three of the hardest working frontmen this reporter has ever seen does not hurt the total package...
He's only just begun writing songs, but this collection features songs by Guy Schwartz & Roger Tausz, as well as covers of several classics by Heath's major influences."

Emotional Inconvenience

"Calling this outfit a jam band may be accurate, but it's not complete. The multi-faceted Hippies take their cues from the compact disciplined stylings of bands like The Atlanta Rhythm Section, Little Feat and War, in addition to the likes of Phish and The Dead. If anything, call The New Jack Hippies a well-rehearsed jam band! And, as good as this band sounds on disc, it's usually more effective in a live setting - preferably under the sun with a cold beer in hand."
- Bob Ruggiero, New Times Newspapers
The Whole Review
"Pulling from the great genre pool, The New Jack Hippies are a unique spin on bluesy, jam-style rock. Eclectic from the very sense of the word, the often large conglomeration of musicians is remarkably creative and cohesive."
- PJ Cooper, Houston Headline
The Whole Review
"The New Jack Hippies have busted out of southeast Texas with their blues, rock, funk and tripped-out jams in tow..."

The Sun's Gonna Rise Before I Get To Texas
"Martin (the president of earthwire.net) points with pride the collaboration between street poet/rapper Kool B, veteran bluesman Guy Schwartz and hellbilly Opie Hendrix as a blueprint for the future. The three first jammed together at Earthwire, and later made a live CD that they recorded at KPFT. "That was a definitive Houston sound," he says. "One that's not like Dallas or Austin. It includes hippie blues guys, hip-hop guys and psychedelic country guys. People here need to get past their cliquishness and that old 'That ain't my kind of music' bullshit and see value in each other and collaborate."
- John Nova Lomax, Houston Press

"Spoken word with acoustic music, all created spontaneously by a truly unexpected group of collaborators! Who knew?"

LOVE LETTERS FROM REVEREND TOM
Audio Book On CD

Guy Schwartz takes on a different kind of spoken word project, as he reads the words of a young priest from Houston, Texas, writing to his bride-to-be in San Antonio, during wartime in 1944. Tom Bagby went on to found St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston, and went on to influence the whole culture of the U.S.A. as the moral conscience of two Presidents George Bush, James Baker and even Z.Z.Top's Billy Gibbons!
