Tribute to the Jazz Legends of Queens

It was a blast playing with the Ed Jackson Quartet, in our last performance "Spring into Jazz!" It was especially nice to perform in front of the Jackson Room crowd again with receptive supporters like you. Prior to the last performance I had the honor of playing with special guests AndJam. But I really enjoyed playing with members of the quartet again in our last performance. It was good to be back together in front of the electrifying Jackson Room crowd. 

The performances at Jackson Room are in the true spirit and rich tradition of jazz in Southeast Queens. In keeping with the great tradition of jazzin Queens, and especially Southeast Queens, we will be doing an exclusive performance themed "Tribute to the Jazz Legends of Queens."

This section of Queens that Jackson Room calls home has also been the home, at one time or another, to jazz legends like Count Basie, Fats Waller, Billie Holiday, John Coltrane, Lena Horne, Ella Fitzgerald, and Mercer Ellington, and many more. Queens in general has a rich tradition of Jazz legends who have resided here.

What better place to commemorate the great jazz tradition of southern Queens thanlistening to riveting jazz at Jackson Room? Why don't you come out and see who we give tribute to representing the great jazz artists who lived in South Queens?

I am elated to have confirmed for this special performance a legend in jazz in his own right, the renowned George Cables, will be on piano that evening. The joint in Jamaica Queens, St. Albans, will definitely be jumping.  So come on out and enjoy "Tribute to the Jazz Legends of Queens" - The Ed Jackson Quartet Gives Homage to the Legacy, Saturday, April 25th, 2015.

Our cadre of talented featured performers for the evening are...

George Cables - Piano
Marcus McLaurine - Bass
Lionel Cordew - Drums

Yours Truly Ed Jackson - Alto Saxophone
