Jackson Garrett – Speechless

Jackson Garrett has performed and recorded in Montreal, New York City, Dallas, Palm Springs and Los Angeles. Influenced early on in his career by The Beatles, Steely Dan, Santana, Michael Franks, Stevie Wonder and many 70’s era artists, Jackson Garrett gravitated toward a jazzy sound as his music mellowed. In Palm Springs, CA he met Pat Rizzo, Andy Fraga, and Earl Brown, locals on the jazz scene with storied pasts, and his act soon became a fixture in the music scene.

His newest album is entitled Speechless (2010) and is featuring Pat Rizzo (formerly of Sly And The Family Stone, War, Frank Sinatra), Steve Madaio (session player on such hits as “I Wish” by Stevie Wonder and “September” by Earth, Wind and Fire, and countless other hit pop tunes), and introducing trombonist Kenny Meier. With the rock-solid rhythm section, these horn players shine on this instrumental interpretation of Jackson Garrett’s earlier vocal CD Cool And Easy. Speechless is now arrived at CDBaby.
