Javon Jackson LIVE at Smoke!

July 27, 2012

Tenor saxophonist Javon Jackson, a standard-bearer of the funkier side of hard bop, was in the final edition of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers. Later, he would appear with Freddie Hubbard, Cedar Walton, Ron Carter, and Charlie Haden, and frequently leading his own groups. As for the aforementioned love of a solid groove, his extensive work with keyboard masters Dr. Lonnie Smith and Les McCann are two notable highlights.
He will be appearing this weekend at Smoke Jazz and Supper Club on the Upper West Side. This is a can’t miss night of stellar jazz.
Here is the line-up!
Javon Jackson (saxophone) • Joel Holmes (piano) •
Nat Reeves (bass) • McClenty Hunter (drums)
See you later!
