4.0 out of 5 stars ...And Into The LIght... July 17, 2006
By Deinara
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the album in which Paul Jackson Jr. stepped out of the shadows of studio-musicianship and into the jazz recording artist light. And I for one, and glad that he did, for he became one of my favorite artists. He is supported on selected songs by some very talented musicians who later became or were already major stars in their own light...Luther Vandross, George Howard, Kirk Whalum, Najee, and George Duke.

I love listening to this music while driving for it is relaxing and makes me feel very warm and mellow. There are only a couple of jarring exceptions, which is why even though it is one of my favorite Paul Jackson albums, I cannot in good conscience give a five star rating.

My very facorite song on the album is "make it last forever". I have always loved the song (the only song by Keith Sweat I could ever tolerate), and in my opinion it is one of those songs that no matter what style you play or sing it in, still comes out lovely. And lovely is exactly the word for it on this album as well. Paul does two versions of it and I adore both equally. Over the years, I have not heard an instrumental rendition of the song done any better. One version of the song begins the album and the "shocking mix" (as far as I am concerned) ends the album. Luther Vandross is one of the background vocalists on both arrangements.

Favorites sandwhiched in-between "make it last.." include: "all for you" a smooth, airy, melodic piece that makes me feel Paul Jackson is playing his music all for me; and "days gone by" a mid-tempo arrangement with a vocal segment repeating the title that is really a part of the instrumentalization of the song rather than a vocal highlight in it.

3.0 out of 5 stars one really fine cut June 29, 2001
By gw
Format:Audio CD
This is an uneven album, to say the least. I tracked it down for Make It Last Forever, which is a fine arrangement and a great groove (smooth jazz-ish). A couple of other cuts come reasonably close, but the rest descend quickly into self-indulgent funk. The snippet of Make It Last that you can hear on this page is probably the least interesting moment in the whole five minutes. So, if you want to take a chance, or if you like heavy funk and you go.
