AGMP presents BRIAN JACKSON
Rare London Concert from one of the early architects of the neo-soul era.
Brian Jackson began writing songs in 1970 with classmate Gil Scott- Heron. Their partnership produced some of the most fiercely poignant, politically charged, and significantly soulful albums of the seventies. ‘Pieces of a Man’, ‘Free Will’, ‘Winter in America’, ‘First Minute of a New Day’, ‘From South Africa to South Carolina’, ‘Bridges‘ and ‘Secrets‘ are coveted by collectors and conscious-minded music fans alike.
Tracks like ‘The Bottle’, ‘Johannesburg’, ‘It’s Your World‘, ‘The Revolution Will Not Be Televised’, ‘Ain’t No Thing as Superman’, ‘Winter in America’, ‘Lady Day and John Coltrane‘, ‘Home is Where the Hatred Is‘ and ‘Angel Dust‘, have taken on heightened new relevance today.
Having produced ten top-selling albums with Gil Scott-Heron, Brian Jackson decided to continue evolving his musical talents in the 1980’s by collaborating with Kool and the Gang, Phyllis Hyman, George Benson, Gwen Guthrie, and Roy Ayers. In 1988, Brian co-produced the self-titled and UK gold-selling debut album by Will Downing.
