The California-based Jackson is supported on his debut Blues album by an array of superlative special guests, including George Benson, Joe Bonamassa, Marlon Jackson, Eddie Levert, Kenny Neal, Bobby Rush, Claudette King and Stevie Wonder.
The albums debut single, “Love One Another”, is the perfect antidote for today’s times of doubt and trepidation. Featuring guest vocal performances from Marlon Jackson, Bobby Rush and Kenny Neal alongside Stevie Wonder’s signature harmonica licks.
Song-writing duo and Hall Of Famers Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, who penned worldwide hits for The Jacksons and The O’Jays, came out of retirement to write “All In The Family Blues” for Tito. The track features another Hall Of Fame legend, Eddie Levert.
As a friend and admirer of BB King, Tito pays tribute in his cover of King’s 1964 classic, “Rock Me Baby.” Tito is honoured to be joined on the song by BB’s daughter, Claudette King.
"My album was something that I considered way back in the day. After the Victory Tour, The Jacksons had taken a break and I got the itch to get get back in the studio and start making music of my own. Blues is something that always has been a love of mine ever since I started playing music. I picked up the guitar because of watching my uncle, Luther and my Father, Joe Jackson, playing a lot of Blues on the weekends at 2300 Jackson Street before The Jackson 5, so it’s always been something that’s been in my blood and in my playing. The experience of going out and performing this style of music with performers such as 'The B.B. King Blues Band' has been a great pleasure and I said to myself that it would be nice to make a record that highlights my admiration for the blues and potentially bring it to a new audience. I hope you all enjoy my album ‘Under You Spell’, it’s a record for everyone." - Tito Jackson
