Gil Scott-Heron / Brian Jackson - Winter In America album FLAC

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.

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 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.

Secrets is a 1978 studio album by American vocalist Gil Scott-Heron and keyboardist Brian Jackson. Secrets was released in September 1978 by Arista Records and debuted at number 31 on the Billboard magazine's jazz chart on September 9. According to Arista executive Clive Davis, the album was Scott-Heron's first since 1975's The First Minute of a New Day to reach the top 100 of Billboard's top albums chart, while the single "Angel Dust" nearly became a hit.

"Look at trees,
they don't bother nobody.
Let folks burn 'em, cut 'em,
paint 'em and use 'em
but they don't bother nobody…
That is, till money…
But like, whose fault is that?"
