KTMcD
Rolling Stone reviewer Robert Palmer called 'Heart & Center' “Michael Gregory Jackson’s Future Funk". “...Jackson’s second album [Heart & Center] for Arista/Novus is unlike anything that’s been heard before. The rhythms, a varied lot, tend toward funk, and his songs and vocal style clearly relate to Earth Wind & Fire and Stevie Wonder. On the other hand, the melodies...incorporate Stravinsky-ish interval jumps that would terrify most pop vocalists, and the shimmering backdrop of voices, guitars and synthesizers, all overdubbed by Jackson, bring to mind the orchestral voicings of the late Duke Ellington. ...Jackson is blending a staggering variety of influences into a...coherent whole."
