“Pearson ‘is a great slide player,’ said [Butch] Trucks…’a strong rhythm guitarist, who helps ‘lay a groove about 10 miles wide behind what Dickey is doing.’ When Pearson finished playing…“Dreams” at one rehearsal, Betts ‘fell on the floor and kissed his feet,’ Trucks said. ‘A real feeling came through. Dickey loved it.’”
- Butch Trucks (ABB)
"...that man can play! I've never met anyone as adept at Delta Blues as they are Bebop. A man who can rock with the Allman Brothers as good as he can swing with Jimmy Smith. A man who could have accompanied Blind Willie Johnson as well as he could Shirley Caesar. That's a rare human right there. Go ask your favorite guitarist. I have learned so much from Jack, and not just about music. He's a good man, and I am really thankful that I got to hear him, jam with him, and know him as a friend."

- Hittin' The Note
“His playing was intimidating. He takes slide to another level. And it’s not just that! The guy has a great ear for bebop, along with a fantastic, soulful rhythm and blues feel…Catch him if you can folks; guitar players like this don’t come along that often.”
