After their last riveting performance "Begin the Summer on a Jazzy Note", in June, the Ed Jackson Quartet, is musically moving to South America, ironically while yet in Southeast Queens. The last high energy show marked their 3rd year anniversary and it was an inspiring, and invigorating performance.
It is still heart warming to see how jazz lovers in our community continue to support jazz every last Saturday, of the month at Jackson Room, in St. Albans. They call these performances their Month's End Jazz Motivations.
The purpose of the monthly shows is to "bring world class jazz back to our community" says Ed Jackson."This time of year I am especially upbeat" says Ed Jackson, the group's namesake leader. He also reveals "It is the time of year I get a chance to prepare to travel back to Brazil." Therefore, Jackson's talented ensemble of jazz artists are performing for the second year in a row the - "Back 2 Brazil" show.
"In late August I will be touring and performing in Brazil and can't wait to connect to the vast musicality of the culture" also chimes in Jackson. Ed metaphorically states "you may not be able to physically travel with me but the community can certainly travel with us musically."
His "Back 2 Brazil" themed special performance will take place this Saturday July 25th. According to Ed Jackson, "it will be an exciting opportunity to experience in St. Albans, Queens, the renowned and sophisticated roots of the Brazilian jazz form of music."
