The late Gil Scott-Heron is revered as one of the founding fathers of spoken word. He and his musical co-conspirator, Brian Jackson, developed a style that stands at the crossroads of jazz, soul, blues, and funk: deeply uplifting but unsettlingly current. Between 1971 and 1979, Scott-Heron and keyboardist/flautist Brian Jackson together co-composed and co-produced nine albums. The duo’s 1974 "Winter in America" was lauded as “a masterwork of ghetto melancholia and stark political gravitas,” and included their most commercially successful song, “The Bottle.” Brian brings of their best-known songs into context as he sings and plays, interweaving stories and anecdotes in the tradition of the African Griot. You've never heard their music like this! Come and celebrate the music of Gil Scott-Heron & Brian Jackson with the co-founder of this powerful musical movement!
