Brian Jackson presents:
Spider and Stick: American Griots

Tuesday 11th September

Classmate and close collaborator of Gil Scott-Heron, Brian Jackson was a key player in the rise of neo-soul, jazz fusion and spoken word in the 70s.

Their partnership produced some of the most fiercely poignant, politically charged, and significantly soulful albums of the decade; Pieces Of A Man, Free Will, Winter In America, First Minute Of A New Day, From South Africa To South Carolina, Bridges and Secrets are coveted by collectors and conscious-minded music fans alike.

Having produced ten top-selling albums with Gil Scott-Heron, Jackson decided to continue evolving his musical talents in the 80’s by collaborating with Kool and the Gang, Phyllis Hyman, George Benson, Gwen Guthrie, and Roy Ayers, co-producing the self-titled and UK gold-selling debut album by Will Downing.

This is a rare chance to catch a legend of 20th century American music performing songs originally written with Gil, in the intimate surrounds of the Jazz Cafe.

Opening up the show on the night will be Apples & Snakes alumnus Amy Leon.
