Los Angeles session guitarist Paul Jackson, Jr. was one of the most prolific players in R&B during the '70s and '80s. Jackson played for the Temptations, Gerald Alston, Bobby Womack, Luther Vandross, Patrice Rushen, Ramsey Lewis, Nancy Wilson, the Pointer Sisters, Howard Hewett, Dennis Edwards, and Jeffrey Osborne, among others, before earning his own solo deal with Atlantic in 1986. But he hasn't been nearly as successful as a lead artist; neither his 1988 release I Came To Play or his '90 effort Out of the Shadows has made any headway. ~ Ron Wynn, Rovi
