Sneak Peek

About

New York  Saxophonist, Ed Jackson, followed his dream in 2011 after standing in an unfinished office basement, and at which point dormant forces came alive as he visualized a stage and jazz club setup. He knew that this would be a huge undertaking, but the passion was there, and realized that if he didn’t go ahead and follow this, he would regret it for the rest of his life.

Situated in Queens  New York , the venue offers live monthly jazz events featuring the Ed Jackson Quartet as well as other world class artist and groups. The Jackson Room also happens to be in the neighborhood where he grew up. This particular area of Queens  in the town of St Albans, was home to an uncanny number of musicians including Count Basie, Fats Waller, Illinois Jacquet, Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong, James Brown, Ella Fitzgerald, Lenny White, Marcus Miller to name a few. In fact, John Coltrane lived on Mexico street which is just a few blocks away from the venue.
