“’Fuazz,’ where the funk meets the jazz,” Jackson says enthusiastically about his style. The sound is an eclectic mix of smooth jazz and upbeat, danceable funk. Jackson’s trumpet lines steer the course over full-band riffs that seem to perfectly embody the rich musical culture of the Five Points neighborhood he calls home. The full length record Stowaway is, at current, Jackson’s pride and joy, and rightfully so. The album includes homages to many of Jackson’s heroes. “Sassafras Tea” is a tribute to James Brown, “Stowaway (on the Mothership)” big ups George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, and “A Walk With Miles” is obviously the tribute to Miles Davis.
