He chose ten songs he would like to have on a deserted island if stranded, perhaps forever. We talked with Nicholas, aka Silver Jackson, about his art, his life and the music he selected. Here is the program, his list of songs and the recipe for his favorite dessert. We’ve also included images of a couple of his works.
