St. Albans New YorkJackson Room, a local venue for jazz, and the Ed Jackson quartet, a highly regarded local jazz group, is again acting on their mission statement: to "bring world class jazz back to our community."   Jackson Room, is quickly becoming the go to place for jazz in this home for jazz greats. 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.

I was there for the 5th year anniversary.  It was really a blast celebrating the 5th Year Anniversary of Jackson Room, with their avid supporters last performance.  Akiko Tsuruga was mesmerizing on organ, Fuku Tainaka was riveting on drums, and Marcus McLaurine's son made a memorable 1st performance at Jackson Room filling in for his dad who was under the weather.

According to Club Owner and band leader Ed Jackson, "The 5 Year Anniversary of the Jackson Room is truly a milestone to pause and reflect on my deepest appreciation to our Jackson Room supporters.  Jackson Room patrons are the best!" 

Jackson is however even more lit and invigorated.  He states "I am ready to embark upon another 5 great years at Jackson Room."   Without skipping a beat he is ready to have another outstanding show scheduled for you featuring the awe inspiring play of Rasheed Howard, and the extremely talented artistry of the Jazz Collective, live at the Jackson Room.

The Amazing Rasheed Howard Plays Trumpet and Flugelhorn Simultaneously

Chimes in Jackson, "we will be performing all original music in this 2nd appearance before the Jackson Room audience with a special tribute to the "Kings of Queens - Masters of Jazz Music!"  If you haven't seen Rasheed Howard, he is the dexterous phenom who plays both the trumpet and flugelhorn at the same time!  He and the other members of the Jazz Collective, will perform true to the mission of Jackson Room - to bring world class jazz back to our community.

What is the Kings of Queens About?

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, Miles Davis, Illinois Jacquet, and Mercer Ellington, and many more. Queens in general has a rich tradition of Jazz legends who have resided here.  The title alludes to giving tribute to the Kings of Jazz who hail from Queens.
