Jackson exhibits his silky lyricism on the title track, the elegant "Lillian," and his lovely version of Brian McKnight's hit "Back at One," which features his daughter Lindsay on vocals. He turns breezy and buoyant on his version of the Spinners' "It's a Shame" and goes to church for the rousing gospel number "Changed," which features Jackson on lead vocals and Billy Preston on B3 organ and Wurlitzer. As Jackson explains to his son, Paul III, his "Park Tour" trio of tunes salutes the parks he visited as a youth in California: "Athens Park" is a mellow ballad, while "Crystal Park" finds Jackson laying flowing guitar lines over James Manning's bass groove and "Sportsman's Park" (cowritten by Jeff Lorber) is a funky, horn-accented number spotlighting saxophonist Gerald Albright.


Featuring a cast of legendary jazz musicians who have totally fallen off since their glory years, Still Small Voice welcomes back Paul Jackson, Jr. to the studio after a two-year hiatus. On this relaxing smooth jazz record of the highest order, Jackson's guitar chops complement Patrice Rushen and Billy Preston's graceful ivories. Taking a stab at jazz standards, pop, and R&B hits, Jackson eloquently treats each of the compositions with great care and respect to the originals, almost as if he wrote them himself. While Jackson hasn't lost a step in his virtuosity, it would have been interesting to let the other musicians involved in the project stretch out a bit and contribute other perspectives. But make no bones about it, this album is fluffier than a lemon meringue pie, while going down smooth like a glass of Louie XIV.
