Soul & Jazz Saxophonist Michael Lington Teams up with Paul Jackson JR. on “JAYWALKING”

Michael Lington and Paul Jackson Jr. take it far outside the crosswalk on the sinuous, exuberant Jaywalking,” the latest track to be released from Lington’s upcoming album, Silver Lining. Stream here > http://smarturl.it/silver_lining

 

“Jaywalking” follows two other inspired collaborations: lead single “City Life” – which features a searing guitar solo by Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) and has already entered the Top 20 of Billboard’s Smooth Jazz chart – and “People Get Ready,” which features vocals by Stax legend/2017 GRAMMY®-winner William Bell on the Curtis Mayfield-penned classic.
“When I first started playing the sax, one of the first albums I listened to was David Sanborn’s Straight To The Heart. I loved the interplay between Sanborn’s sax and Hiram Bullock’s guitar, so I wrote and recorded ‘Jaywalking’ based on that idea,” explains Michael Lington. “I invited one of the greatest guitarists, Paul Jackson Jr. to join me, and I’m really thrilled with how it turned out. When I first started playing the sax, one of the first albums I listened to was David Sanborn’s Straight To The Heart.
