You hear familiar compositions from the repertoire of past artists he has been a sideman with, including Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers , Freddie Hubbard , and McCoy Tyner , as well as some personal favorites and originals in tribute to other legends of jazz.
What Jackson brings to the table more than a decade after his initial thrust into the modern jazz arena is a more fluid, mellow, and sophisticated sound that is aging well, while still quite current and tuneful.

Jackson 's originals "Mr. Jones" and "Mr. Taylor" for drummers Elvin Jones and Art Taylor are John Coltrane -like modal and easy swinging blues, respectively, the former introduced by a marvelous free bass solo from Holt and the latter a basic, unforced, and enjoyable mainstream jazz song.
