“BK2SQ1 by Tali ‘Icepack’ Jackson & Klyph Black totally blew me away. I completely fell in love with the sound, the upbeat mixture of blues—just listen that trailing sax on Gumbaux Sallee then contrast it with the reggae style sound of To Keep Love—a favorite. Coming Home Soon has more of a rock edge. Lazy River is pure class. Lazy as the title suggests with a wonderful blend of accordion, keyboard and vocals, to name a few. These guys are first class musicians at the top of their game, the best bit being they make it sound like they’re out for a stroll. There’s not a wasted track. If you’re looking for something completely different, something coolly brilliant, look no further, just get BK2SQ1.”
“This CD takes off from square one, day one, and hasn't looked back. It is rare to find a CD like this that is totally solid, from front to back. Have a listen for yourself, to an award worthy album. The pleasure will be all yours. Madcat Blue - WJCU, Cleveland, Ohio The Capitol Of Rock and The Crossroads Of Rustbelt Blues”
“My absolute favourite track on the CD is ‘Internet Blues’ because it’s fun and up-tempo which suits my programs. However there are several tracks on the album that appeal to me and there’s really something for everyone. Tali was generous enough to give me a couple of extra copies to give away as prizes to my listeners and the feedback was positive. Thank you Tali for your music and your generosity. Keep on rocking the blues! ”
“..."Blues lovers will not be disappointed with the cd BK2SQ1" with the talented line up of Grammy Winners Charles Neville & Terrance Simien with Icepack Jackson, Sax legend Arno Hecht, Bob Steeler, Fmr hot tuna drummer, Double Grammy Nominated Will Bernard & Country Joe & The Fish's David B. Cohen contributing to this wonderful CD. My personal favs are "Gumbeaux Sallee", "Lovers Paradise", and "Internet Blues".. A must have for all blues lovers!”
“Bk2sq1 is a great cd! It’s refreshing to hear music like this in a world in which much of the new music sounds so much the same. Not so with this cd, which combines a soulful sound with rock and jazz. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I especially like Lazy River, World of Pain, Vision and Internet Blues! I play this album frequently, and am looking forward to more music from Icepack Jackson! Gary C.
