Trumpeter and producer Jackson Mathod released the new song Come On Now, the second single off his forthcoming EP planned for the autumn.
After channeling his Latin side on the first single Brazil Nut, this one is a trademark Jackson delivery of infectious grooves and catchy horn-lines. Features his Fireball Sessions acolytes McNasty (Wizzkid) on drums, Charlie Allen (Tom Misch) on guitar, Luke Smith on piano, Joey Grant on bass, and Gabriele Pribetti on sax.
Come On Now was written in the midst of our second lockdown when I was in a phase of lacking motivation and creativity. Music always seems to lift my spirits and I wanted a piece of music to really encompass that feeling, Jackson says.

Following on from a successful 18 months of releases with support from the likes of 6 Music, BBC London, BBC 2, Jazz FM, Worldwide FM, The Wicked Sound and more, as well over 2.8m streams to date, this new EP reinforces Jackson's very strong position in the UK jazz landscape.
2020 saw Jackson release his first projects under his own name, after years as a session and touring musician, playing with various artists on the jazz and pop scene, notably Stormzy and Jordan Rakei. His music instantly connected with audiences in the UK and beyond, Spotify and Apple showing love from the get-go which led to radio plays in the UK via key figures like Jamie Cullum, Gilles Peterson, Robert Elms, Jamz Supernova and more.
