Ed Jackson, has been able to build a receptive and enlivened regular crowd of patrons at the Jackson Room, because of his determination to bring world class jazz back to the Jamaica and Southeast Queens, NY community.  He has been successful in his endeavors to be true to the spirit of the classical jazz roots and heritage of the neighborhood while also bringing a modern favor to his club and album produced in Southeast Queens.

Mr. Jackson brings his skills as a saxophonist extraordinaire to embellish his album with a cast of superior jazz talents to produce a sophisticated synergy of horn, piano, and percussion razzle dazzle gumbo of jazz delight.  He and his peers don't disappoint in the drive to entertain the live album's loyal audience of attendees and it shows in this album.

Ed and his dream team of jazz cohorts in artistic stylings spellbound the home town crowd in the quaint and cozy Jackson Room.  The performance spot, with its sound optimized ambiance, is the backdrop for this album's production scenario.  The Jackson Room obviously provides good acoustics for this satisfying album.

Ed Jackson, with this album can now share the engaging Jackson Room performance experience with the world.  The release of this album's live performance at the Jackson Room, embellished with the contributions of its exceptional jazz talent, shares with people the riveting monthly Jackson Room performances.

Ed Jackson's sax showmanship really shines on this album. The soulful Jackson is able to play a smooth jazz tune on one number and seconds later shock you into awe with his powerful horn scatting intensity. His writing on the album is also dynamic as he composes riveting call and response riffing with his other horn masters in an excellent harmonic improvisation.

The Album “Ed Jackson Live,” is a savory jazz album at the Jackson Room made available to the global community of jazz enthusiasts. The album reps well the quality of top jazz talent that grace's the venue on an ongoing basis.  This CD is obviously tuned into Jackson's saxophone aplomb and his affinity to push and challenge his fellow horn virtuosos to give their best performances.

His first tune on his album is a tribute to the home of the Ed Jackson Sextet -- “The Jackson Room.” It is a fun and fitting tribute to the faithful Jackson Room patrons.

Throughout the album we are treated to the talented contributors in personal but moving collective synergistic artistry.  The horn masters Tom Browne, of the Billboard #1hit “Funkin For Jamaica, NY,” is on Trumpet, the highly regarded Freddie Hendrix, is on Flugelhorn and Trumpet, and of course band  leader Ed Jackson, is on alto saxophone.  They leave their indelible stamp on this album's moving music.  Equally Calrton Holmes, on piano, with top tier bassist Essiet Essiet, and the ambidextrous Lionel Cordew, is on drums, paint engaging music with complimentary flourish.

Selections like “To Her Ladyship,” with their syncopated horn revelry draw you into the ecstasy of the true Jackson Room Experience.   “The Ed Jackson Live,” album gives a contrasting spectrum of rich jazz from the drum driven “Happy House,” to the soothing smooth jazz rapture of the 911 musical tribute “One Last Goodbye.”  The Ed Jackson Live album is an ethereal mix of invigorating jazz.  Bravo to the Ed Jackson Sextet for this music compilation and kudos to Ed Jackson for sharing the Jackson Room experience with all of us in this jazzy album.  Thanks to the Ed Jackson Sextet, and this CD we all can enjoy this great underground music.
