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.
They will also be looking at his upcoming album on BBE This Is Brian Jackson. Produced by Phenomenal Handclap Band founder Daniel Collás, This Is Brian Jackson is the veteran songwriter and musician’s first true solo studio album in 20 years. “I had mentioned to Daniel that I had begun work on a solo project around the time that Gil and I were recording Bridges in 1976” says Jackson. “I even had a few unfinished tracks. The seed of Daniel’s concept centered around the question: ‘what would a Brian Jackson album sound like if the 21st century Brian were to complete that 1976 album today?’”
