We've already started off the New Year with a powerful performance by And Jam, one of the most popular groups at JacksonRoom, last month. It was a night to remember with stellar performances that have become the trademark of performances at JacksonRoom. 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 JacksonRoom, 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!
