    This was the one that changed everything for me:

    MAN. I am sitting here listening to it for the 8 millionth time and it's giving me goosebumps.

    Paul Jackson was a giant in the music world. I remember listening to him play and putting tracks on repeat for days at a time just to pick up a little of the nuance in that massive groove. He will be greatly missed by all.
    RIP Paul Jackson

    Yeah I lived in Oak-Town for 25 years. Things have changed a lot in the Bay Area since I left, but at one time there were a lot of heavy hitters walking around that town.

    No other player since Jamerson has transformed how I think of our instrument.

    RIP and THANK YOU.

    The tone WAS in his fingers. End of debate.

    Awww...I'm bummed I never got to see him live, I was real late to the party. Been one of my main listening choices over the last few years, chasing down tracks he played on here and there, finding his Herbie tracks (there are at least 3 different live shows from the Herbie Head Hunters era on youtube that are gold), Head Hunters albums and his solo albums.
    For me, Flood is the pinnacle; just stupendous playing, pristine recording, a master class in rhythm section grooveology.
    Unfortunately I had a feeling this was coming, it had been so silent on his media outlets for quite a while, was really hoping a chance to see him Stateside would happen.
    I'll see you in the next world, thank you for being you.

    Paying my respects here because I don’t know where else to do it. Very sad to hear about this. RIP Mr Jackson, one of the greatest players of all time.
