Jazz Funk Legend
& vendredi 4 Août à 21h
When Brian Jackson bumps into Gil Scott Heron in high school for the first time, the two hit it off royally. The shy 16-year-old piano prodigy sensed a kindred spirit in the kinetic young wordsmith, and he wasn’t wrong. Together they’d make ten records and amongst them, timeless hits like ‘The Bottle’, ‘We Almost Lost Detroit’, ‘Lady Day & John Coltrane’, with Jackson’s mellifluous brand of Jazz-Funk the perfect foil to Gil’s poetic beats and incendiary social refractions. Brian’s story doesn’t end there. He’d go on to work with Stevie Wonder, Kool & The Gang, Earth Wind & Fire and Gwen Guthrie just to name a few. Of late, he’s been back in focus with a new album released on BBE and works with the likes of Louis Vega. Brian Jackson – back on the Rhodes, with band, playing the songs of a storied career.
