Jackson Room, a local venue for jazz and the Ed Jackson quartet, a highly regarded local jazz group, is again showing their dedication to "bring world class jazz back to our community." Ed Jackson, the group leader and alto sax musician extraordinaire, is also a successful entrepreneur. He started Jackson Room, as a community outlet to also occasionally showcase premier jazz acts and groups.
In keeping with his vision his namesake quartet will be doing a special Tribute to the Jazz Legends of Queens, Saturday, April 25th, 2015. Ed Jackson is elated to give homage to the jazz greats in our area who went before him.
Jackson reflects "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 jazz in 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 than listening to riveting jazz at Jackson Room? Why don't you come out and see who the Ed Jackson Quartet gives tribute to in representing the great jazz artists who lived in South Queens?
Ed Jackson reveals "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.
