Brian Jackson

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.

a song that reminds you of school
Sly & The Family Stone - I Want To Take You Higher
a song guaranteed to make you feel depressed
Billie Holiday - Strange Fruit
a record you fell in love to
The Delfonics - La La Means I Love You

When I was a young teen, this was the all-time slow-dance record at the time.

first record you remember
Clifford Brown with Strings - Yesterdays

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.

the song to be played at your funeral
Donny Hathaway - Someday We'll All Be Free

But I hope I have enough time to change my mind if I want to.

a song that evokes the greatest summer of your life
The Temptations - Runaway Child, Running Wild
your ultimate heartbreak song
Rick James & Teena Marie - Fire & Desire
your liberation anthem
Gil Scott-Heron & Brian Jackson - Prayer For Everybody / To Be Free

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.

best Miles Davis song
Miles Davis - Someday My Prince Will Come

«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.
