Tyrone Jackson will perform with his combo in place of the CSU Jazz Combo.
Born in the New Orleans cradle of jazz, Jackson embodies the spirit of the Crescent City. The blends of jazz, funk and afro-carribean melodies are ever present in his work. But of course, musicians are never solely influenced by themselves. Jacksonís teachers are a virtual Who’s Who of great piano players ranging from Ellis Marsalis, Mary Ann Bulla to gospel/classical legend Moses Hogan.
Jackson has performed with Steve Turre, Larry Carlton, Carmen Bradford, Earl Klugh, Melba Moore, Wynton Marsalis, Branford Marsalis, Wycliffe Gordon, Vincent Gardner, Joe Lovano, Dave Douglas, Wes Anderson, Greg Dawson, Jennifer Holliday, Karen Briggs, Clay Jenkins, Russell Gunn, David Sanchez, Damaris Carbough, Russell Malone, Marcus Miller along with opening for Esperanza Spaulding, Gerald Albright, Spyro Gyra and the Crusaders, and Chaka Kahn. He also toured Italy and Austria with the UNO Jazz Band; toured Brazil with Michael Ward; Toured Thule,Greenland and performed with FutureMan (Roy Wooton) in Mableton, Ga.
His latest CD “Melody in Nede” is his third solo release. He has also recorded “Dedicated” and second CD, “Another Voyage” with label Hot Shoe Records. His songs are currently played with much acclaim to worldwide audiences on XM 70 Satellite radio. Jackson was also featured in Jazziz Magazine and selected articles in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
