In 1979, Ronald Shannon Jackson founded his own group, The Decoding Society, playing what has been dubbed free funk: a blend of funk rhythm and free jazz improvisation. Its recordings include Eye on You, Mandance, Street Priest, Barbeque Dog, and When Colors Play. Vernon Reid (Living Colour), and Melvin Gibbs (Harriet Tubman, Rollins Band) both started their careers with Jackson. Both played and recorded extensively with Jackson.
