Paul Jackson, Jr.: City of Refuge

Aug 23, 2021

The name Paul Jackson, Jr. for most music lovers conjures up his work on the hit sounds of Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Patti LaBelle, Dave Koz, David Benoit and so many other great musical artists and projects. Paul is one of the most accomplished guitar session players in the music business, covering just about every genre.

Paul is also an accomplished artist in his own right dating back to his Atlantic Records debut I Came To Play. On his latest offering City of Refuge Paul teams up with another iconic musician, Jeff Lorber, and the result is an infectious musical treat that will stand out among the slew of recent releases but in a good way.  City of Refuge contains smooth grooves with the right amount of funk and a memorable hook creating four minutes and twenty seconds of musical delight. You can hear City of Refuge with your Morning Motivations during Morning Jazz with Morris Baxter on Atlanta’s Jazz Station 91. 9 WCLK.

David C. Linton is Jazz 91.9 WCLK Program Director and host of Serenade To The City, heard Monday-Friday at 10pm.
