I mean, they did in The Time. There's a great story on Facebook (and maybe here) about him playing his demo for "Jungle Love" to Prince in the car, and two measures in Prince said "let's do that!". Prince tried to take credit for it, but it was Jesse's tune.

But really, I get what you mean. But Jesse's first three solo records (Jesse Johnson's Revue, Shockadelica, Every Shade of Love) are just amazing on his own. The latter is my favorite.

I was listening to Shockadelica earlier today. Listen to that shit on Spotify. That album

is flawless. His band was kicking ass then.

Shockadelica is a good album, but for me, I think Every Shade Of Love trumps it a bit. There are some weaker tracks on Shockadelica that can be one-upped by stuff on ESOL. But he definitely had a strong trilogy of albums there.

Identity

His tone is amazing. I didn't know he's a left-handed guitarist until I saw the reverse headstock strat.

I can respect that. I just dig Shockadelica a little better. For me on Every Shade
Jesse came out hitting on the album's first 3 tracks then for me there were a couple of pedestrian tracks on it. For me Shockadelica was a lot more live with his band kicking ass versus Every Shade where Jesse played damn near all the instruments and it sounding more one dimensional but Evvery Shade still is a winner with me.

The whole show is on YouTube. It keeps popping up in my recommendations. It's about 1:51 & change.

Smh Wow. This man was and remains THE TRUTH. I'd be cool as hell if Jesse and Bruno Mars would hook up and do something funky.

If it wasn't 4 Bruno Mars, Jesse (and Jerome) wouldn't have been a part of the 2017 Grammy Tribute. Story goes Bruno stepped 2 Jimmy Jam & said He would NOT take part if it wasn't THE Original Band!! They were gonna try & pull some Part-Time sh*t!!! Bruno was NOT havin' it!!! Besides: wasn't Jimmy & Terry FIRED by the time Jungle Love & The Bird came out??

eek

Really?! I don't blame Bruno. I would've requested the very same. Yes, Jam and Lewis weren't apart of the group by the time "Jungle Love" dropped.

Prince fired Jimmy & Terry because they missed a gig while producing the S.O.S Band in

Atlanta. They were snowed in and missed a gig. Morris, Jesse, and other bandmates were pissed. Monte was so pissed he actually quit.

Jellybean quit too. Prince asked Monte & Jellybean to return. I think Terry was asked to come back too. Only Jellybean accepted, because he said he just started a family and needed the money from doing the movie. Morris only stayed because he was under contract already to do the Purple Rain movie. After that, he was free to leave. Prince asked Jesse to lead The Time, but Jesse wasn't interested in that. Jesse took a couple of the replacement members for his band The Revue and the leftovers became The Family.

Great move by Jesse to move on as a solo act with his own band. I don't think it would have

been a good move for Jesse to lead the Time as I don't think Time fans would have been interested

without Morris personality and schict plus financially it probably wouldn't have made sense for Jesse

as Prince would have continued to get the Lion's share of the money from The Time being under

contract to him.

Back in the day I recall reading Jessie Johnson was working on Janet Jackson's new album. I think the tracks were supposed to be on the album that would eventually become Rhythm Nation. I guess in the end it didnt make the final cut.

Jesse wrote and produced the songs "Fast Girls" and "Pretty Boy" which appeared on Janet's second album,Dream Street,released in late 1984.

When did this thread get moved to this part of the site? It's not where I posted it, it was in the non-Prince music section, where I post all of my threads.
