Sunday Meet the Artist Series – Winard Harper presents Ron Jackson

April 16 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Ron Jackson is a New York jazz 6 and 7 string guitarist, composer, arranger, producer, recording artist, and instructor. Ron has performed and recorded in over 20 countries as a bandleader and ensemble performer, and is well established on the international jazz scene. Ron’s style of guitar playing and composing is a blend of jazz and other American styles such as soul, rhythm and blues, pop, as well as Caribbean and Latin, having been influenced by his Philippine roots. He brings it all together in his unique approach to playing jazz guitar.

Considered one of the most versatile guitarists in the world, he is adept in styles such as African, Rock, R+B, Brazilian, Pop, Country, Calypso, Reggae, Soul, Funk, and Classical, but his greatest passion has always been jazz. Ron has 5 jazz guitar albums to his credit as a leader: A Guitar Thing and Thinking of You on Muse Records, Song For Luis – a duo with Rufus Reid on Mastermix Records, Concrete Jungle – co-led with bassist Nicki Parrott on Airmen Records, and The Dream I Had on Roni Music. Branching out stylistically, Ron has 2 new CD’s on his Roni Music Label. His group Burning Gums’ self-titled album features an international line-up including Norbert Marius on bass (Hungary) and Hiroyuki “Matsu” Matsuura (Japan) on drums and percussion. Flubby Dubby, Ron’s new CD with his Hammond organ group was recorded live and perfectly showcases his soul-jazz originals and arrangements of popular tunes. The album features Kyle Koehler on Hammond and Otis Brown III on drums with special guests Don Braden on tenor saxophone and Bruce Williams on alto. Giving it that special touch, the album was produced by Ron’s mentor, the late soul-jazz and acid jazz pioneer Melvin Sparks. Currently in the works, Ron has a new CD called “Akustik InventYours”, Roni Music 6653.
