He was one piece of work, I tell you. In a good way. The homely looking guy up there got Miles Davis and John Lee Hooker together. Put Ry Cooder behind Jagger. And recorded some bad ass music of his own. Really, I don't have the time to go on about Jack Nitzsche right this minute. I just ran into his song, "Lower Califonia" and had to point you to it. (The third song below): Q: How to cram Pet Sounds into two minutes? A: Nitzsche did his best. Whether you hear it like that or not, the song is fucking amazing. There's so much there in just two short minutes.
