About Brian Jackson

One-half of the legendary duo Gil Scott-Heron and Brian Jackson, pianist-composer Brian Jackson is widely thought of as one of the forefathers of neo-soul and modern hip hop, prompting New Yorker magazine in a 2022 article to call him “a musical pioneer.” His catalogue has long been a source of sample material for icons such as Tupac, Common and Kendrick Lamar.

Continually choosing to put his music at the service of social and/or political messages, Brian has worked with artists as diverse as Ron Carter, Bobbi Humphrey, Roy Ayers, Lonnie Liston Smith and many others.

His album, This Is Brian Jackson (BBE Music), has garnered critical acclaim with spots in Mojo magazine’s “Highest Rated Albums of 2022“ and in The New York Times’ February 2022 playlist. His album 2084 (Montserrat House) is scheduled for release in early 2023.

A Master of Fine Arts and an inspiring public speaker, Brian regularly offers masterclasses and workshops stateside and abroad.
