Who is he?

The name Tyrone Jackson is quickly becoming synonymous with the quintessential jazz piano player. His boundless creativity coupled with subtle accompaniments, has Tyrone poised for national recognition.

Born in the New Orleansí 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 jazz piano players ranging from Ellis Marsalis, Kevin Bales to gospel legend Moses Hogan.

In addition to his composition skills, the jazz wonder is most known for his compelling solos. Jackson’s improvisational skills allow him to become a part of the song whether he softly highlights ballads or tears through fast-paced standards.

Jackson has performed with 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.
