Gil Scott-Heron / Brian Jackson – Winter In America (RSD 2024 – Black & White Vinyl Effect)

$64.95 Inc. GST

Released in 1974, Gil Scott-Heron and Brian Jackson’s “Winter In America” paints a stark yet soulful portrait of the African-American experience in the 1970s. The album strips down production to its core, relying on traditional African and R&B sounds as a foundation for Jackson’s bluesy and jazzy piano arrangements. Scott-Heron’s vocals weave a tapestry of social commentary, Afrocentric themes, and poignant balladry, creating a more melancholic mood than previous works. Tracks often extend beyond the four-minute mark, allowing Scott-Heron’s signature “bluesology” – a fusion of blues, jazz, and soul – to unfold with depth. Elements of African music, heavy percussion, and chants punctuate the soundscape, further enriching the album’s exploration of identity and community.
