Larry Jackson Leaving Arista/J-Records

EXIT AT ARISTA: One of Clive Davis’ longtime talent execs has left the building. Arista Records President A&R and RCA Music Group EVP A&R Larry Jackson has reportedly ankled the label, Jackson was promoted to the post in Oct. 2009, reporting to RCA/Jive Label Group Chairman/CEO Barry Weiss. Jackson first joined J Records upon its inception in 2000, handling the A&R process for multi-platinum artists such as Jennifer Hudson, Leona Lewis, Whitney Houston and Monica. Before joining J, he was the MD and an on-air personality at San Francisco ’s KMEL, where he began his career as an intern.

We can only wonder what this will mean for our dear Whitney. It is not like Larry has done a whole lot to see that Whitney or any other Arista act, get the best promotion or the best marketing for their music. We wish Mr Jackson much success in his future endeavors, we just hope now Arista will bring aboard someone who will get the job done. Salute
