Thrill to Latin Jazz

We've already started off the New Year with a powerful performance by And Jam, one of the most popular groups at Jackson Room, last month.  It was a night to remember with stellar performances that have become the trademark of performances at Jackson Room Our mission is to bring world class jazz back to the community.

In February we continued to "bring it" with one of the most enjoyable forms of jazz both at Jackson Room, and internationally: Latin Jazz!  This month our good friend and artist extraordinaire Willie Martinez, brought his electrifying quartet to Jackson Room.

I was honored to contribute, with his band, in a special guest performance as we give homage to this eclectic and electrifying culturally rich musical art form. Latin Jazz is a mixture of African rhythms and Latin flavor which obvious got the crowd in the grove to move. Willie, his band, and I put together what was an electrifying program for Jackson Room patrons Saturday, February 27th, 2016.  It was an amazing evening. 
The exclusive "Thrill to Latin Jazz" Performance with the Willie Martinez Quartet, and me as his Special Guest featured the following cadre of stellar artists:
Nicki Denner - Piano
Ron "Rondew" Monroe - Bass
Willie Martinez - Drums

Eddie Allen - Trumpet 
Yours Truly, Ed Jackson - Sax

Thank those who came on out and experienced this outstanding cross cultural musical presentation.  It was another SOLD OUT Jackson Room performance!
