Tickets and Reservations
Coming out of the pandemic lockdown, world-renowned seven string jazz guitarist, composer, and arranger Ron Jackson released his latest solo album, Standards and My Songs, which reached the Top 10 Jazzweek album release chart. The album spotlights Jackson’s clean-burning, clean-toned guitar voice and bookends his pre-pandemic 2019 outing, Standards and Other Songs, with a critical difference. Joining Ron Jackson on stage are Akiko Tsuruga (organ), Carmen Intorre, Jr. (drums), and T.K. Blue (saxophone) to perform a handpicked selection of the latest and best of his musical repertoire.
Ron Jackson has performed, recorded, and taught music in over 30 countries. Jackson is likely the only African American seven-string jazz guitarist alive. His goal is to bring awareness to the instrument through education, music, and events. As a musician, Jackson has mastered the six, seven, and twelve-string guitars and plays other fretted string instruments like the ukulele, banjo, and electric bass. He has been featured as a leader in jazz festivals all over the world, including the North Sea Jazz Festival, Edinburgh Jazz Festival, and Winter Jazzfest. In 2022, Ron was awarded the South Arts’ Jazz Road grant to support his “Whatever’s Open” Tour in March-April 2022. This coincided with his Top 10 Jazzweek album release, “Standards and My Songs”.
