is a keyboardist, flautist, singer, composer, and producer. He is best known for his collaborations with Gil Scott-Heron in the 1970s. During that period Jackson wrote some of the most impressive political soul songs ever (f.e. «The Bottle» and «Johannesburg»). After the inglorious downfall of Scott-Heron, Brian Jackson played with Earth, Wind & Fire and Stevie Wonder and produced hit singles for Will Downing and Gwen Guthrie.
When I was a young teen, this was the all-time slow-dance record at the time.
My parents were big jazz buffs and whenever they use to play that, I use to sit infront of the hi-fi and rick. When they tried to play something else I would start to cry. I was like three years old.
But I hope I have enough time to change my mind if I want to.
When I realized that without love, courage, harmony and dignity freedom didn’t mean a damn thing. So I wrote this song to say that.
«Teo» off this album might be my all-time favorite Miles joint; I think during that recording it must have been the exact moment that Coltrane started visiting other places.
