The artist in question is a singer, songwriter, harmonica player and guitarist. Birth name Garrett Dutton, he goes by G. Love and hails from Philadelphia. A serial performer, he's been known to do around 150 shows per year. As a solo artist and with his group Special Sauce, he's released more than a dozen albums. Speaking of the blues, the other day I went to check the mail and was in for a nice surprise. It was the most recent Jack Jones CD, but as I opened the jacket saw the handwriting of Jack Jones himself. He wrote a beautiful inscription. It's a great album and I really love it. I drove around and listened to it from beginning to end several times. Thank you Jack Jones and thank you to his team. Now, I'm going to take you back to that hot night where I sat down with G. Love. He was just about to take the stage, but gave me a few minutes. It was a great show and now you can listen to what we talked about. The G. Love interview is right here on The Paul Leslie Hour.
