Brian Jackson joins Classic Album Sundays founder Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy for a deep dive into his 1977 collaboration with Gil Scott-Heron Bridges. Brian will share stories of recording the album and his personal memories of working with Gil Scot-Heron. The excellent songwriting on Bridges exposes Scott-Heron at the height of his powers as a literary artist. The social, political, cultural, and historical themes are presented in a tight funk meets jazz meets blues meets rock sound that is buoyed by Jackson’s characteristic keyboard playing and the Midnight Band’s colorful arrangements.
