Jackie Jackson @ Take Me Places #3

Jackie Jackson @ Take Me Places #3

At his very first studio session Clifton "Jackie" Jackson shocked his fellow musicians because he insisted on playing the intro for Girl I Have Got A Date by Alton Ellis.

Why did producer Duke Reid still allow him to play?
What was Tommy McCook's reaction to this bold move?
And how did the actual recording go down of a song that is one of the genre's ultimate classics today?

Jackie Jackson shares it all in episode 3 of Take Me Places

As a bass player he has greatly shaped the sound of Rocksteady, has played on countless tracks that are evergreens today, and spent decades on stage with Toots Hibbert as part of the Maytals.

Who is "a pretty intimidating figure" in music production? 
What happened when the band at Treasure Isle finished a recording?
And what are his plans for the future as Jackie and his fellow Maytals are now embarking on a new musical journey with their project Obessa

You can find out all about it in our deep and cordial conversation recorded at Alternative Music Limited in Kingston to exemplify to Munchy and the viewers the magical place that is a recording studio.
