Jimmy Jackson's association with jazz is a profound
experience in itself. For over 20 years Jackson toured the world
with legendary organist Jimmy Smith, and during the course of
this prestigious tenure he also performed with other such
masters as McCoy Tyner; George Benson; Carlos Santana,
and Christian McBride (who refers to Jimmy as "swinging
Jimmy Jackson"). Having shared the stage for so many years
with these and other giants of jazz - and the list is extensive -
makes Jackson a living icon in his own right.
On My Way Home features arrangements inspired by a 1961
collaboration between Cannonball Adderley and Nancy Wilson.
There are several original tunes as well that keep the musical
dialogue between past and present alive and intact
