BRIAN JACKSON “LIFE IS SO MUCH BETTER WHEN YOU CAN HEAR ALL THE COLORS” 

BRIAN JACKSON

LEGENDARY COMPOSER, FLAUTIST AND PIANIST 

Brian can’t remember a time where music was not playing in his childhood home. Songs and melodies filled his life from the start and lead to a decades-long career as a musician and composer. Here’s what Brian has to say about PureSound, the essence of the Widex sound philosophy.  

MEET BRIAN

Brian spent more than a decade writing, recording and performing with US jazz and soul legend Gil Scott-Heron. His compositions are at the heart and soul of several Scott-Heron albums, including critically acclaimed “Winter in America” and “Pieces of a Man”. Brian has also worked with Earth, Wind and Fire, Stevie Wonder, Will Downing, and Gwen Guthrie.

“PureSound is how I remember the piano sounding 40 years ago.”
 

THE COLORS OF MUSIC  

For Brian, hearing good sound is like having a good palette of paints. “You want to hear everything you can hear – from the highest note, to the lowest note,” he says. Brian says that he heard a difference when he used Widex PureSound. “When you can really enjoy music to its fullest, you can really enjoy life.” 

3D SOUND FOR A 3D WORLD 

When Brian first tried PureSound, he says he experienced a more “dimensional experience,” that was more 3D, with the sound enveloping him at the same time. “PureSound is completely different than anything I expected,” he said.  


CHOOSING THE PIANO  

When Brian was a child, he asked his mom if he could get a drum set. That wasn’t an option, so they settled on the piano. That decision led to a decades-long career in the music business.
