Gil Scott-Heron / Brian Jackson - Winter In America flac album
Winter in America is a studio album by American recording artist Gil Scott-Heron and musician Brian Jackson, released in May 1974 on Strata-East Records. Recording sessions for the album took place during September to October 1973 at D&B Sound Studio in Silver Spring, Maryland. It contains introspective and socially conscious lyrics by Scott-Heron that reflect on African-American culture at the time of the album's conception.
Gil Scott-Heron’s literary side was nurtured by his grandmother who introduced him to the poems and stories of Langston Hughes when he was a young boy. He was raised by her in Jackson, Tenn. where he read Hughes’ texts in the Chicago Defender, a black newspaper the old lady had delivered weekly. When Gil did right by his mother and returned to Lincoln University in 1969, he and fellow student pianist/flutist Brian Jackson began combining poetics with soulful jazz arrangements. As Gil and Jackson laid the foundation for their future music, first with group Black & Blues and then as a duo, Gil’s novel was published by The World Publishing Company in 1970, who also simultaneously released his political poetry collection Small Talk at 125th and Lenox.
1980 is a studio album by American vocalist Gil Scott-Heron and keyboardist Brian Jackson. It was recorded from August to October 1979 and released in February 1980 by Arista Records. Scott-Heron and Jackson produced 1980 with Malcolm Cecil and performed with a host of studio musicians, including drummer Harvey Mason, guitarist Marlo Henderson, and trombonist Bill Watrous. They incorporated sounds from contemporary pop music, such as disco, dance, and new wave, into their past jazz-funk style.

Gil Scott-Heron was at his most righteous and provocative on this album. The title cut was a moving, angry summation of the social injustices Scott-Heron felt had led the nation to a particularly dangerous period, while "The Bottle" was a great treatise on the dangers of alcohol abuse. He also offered his thoughts on Nixon's legacy with "The H2O Gate Blues," a classic oral narrative. Brian Jackson's capable keyboard, acoustic piano and arranging talents helped make this a first-rate release, one of several the duo issued during the 1970s.

A powerful combination of music and poetry, Gil Scott-Heron & Brian Jackson utilize a rich palette of sounds to convey a diverse array of subject matter. Each track from the album provides memorable moments ranging from raw to eloquent, occasionally mixed with a little humor. A masterpiece from The Roots long before they became Jimmy Fallon’s house band. It is an album that is similar to Winter in America in its opportunistic use of spoken-word (not rap), as well as how it addresses pervasive and unjust realities found in the African-American community with unflinching conviction. Questlove’s drumming is absolutely genius both in his performance and production/sound manipulation.
