Album Notes
"Just Left of Center" is the second release from drummer Bruce Jackson. A gathering of old and new friends, Jackson is joined by pianist Bob Himmelberger (who also appeared on Jackson's previous release, "Don't Sleep On Your Dreams") saxophonist Mike Mullan and bassist Steve Varner. The recording was recorded, mixed and mastered by three time Grammy Award winner David Kowalski.

Taking the "less is more" approach results in an EP length recording of thoughtful yet eclectic material. Selections are almost widely varied as the regions in which the composers reside (New York, Pennsylvania, New Orleans, Paris (France), and Suffolk (England).

Jackson sees this recording as a "step to the side" of jazz recordings that offer interpretations of time tested standards. While the instrumentation may be familiar, it is the unique interpretation of not always familiar material that makes this recording stand, as the title implies, just left of center.
