While Jackson's own playing and arranging have never been better than on this album (focusing his energy on subtlety rather than showy riffing), his musicians, though young, can blow with the best of them. David Mullen on tenor and soprano saxes comes equally from the David Sanborn and Gato Barbieri schools of phrasing and rhythmic pulse, and he has a melodic sensibility on a par with Stan Getz as a young man.

It’s heartwarming and encouraging to hear from younger artists whom I myself admire that I had a place in the formation of what they do. gguru763, anyounge, it means the world to hear these words while I’m still alive and well. ible Black History Month series that he is doing eroom all month. I haven’t done a set like this in along time. It was incredible to open up for the legend n jackson (please please look this man). He has done way too much for me to reduce him to just the flute on The Bottle by Gil Scott-Heron. The vibe was incredible.
