Spotlight on New Music: Ron Jackson-Akustik Invent Yours

August 23, 2014

RonJacksonBGpic1Ron Jackson is a virtuoso on the 7 string, swinging his “ax” in straight ahead jazz outfits as well as R&B and funk situations wherever music lovers gather. Ron has worked all over the world as both a leader and a side-man, and he never disappoints.

His latest release is entitled Akustik Invent Yours and he deftly creates a surprising new sound on every soul-stirring track. This album takes you on a musical journey with cascading melodies, and thoughtful rhythms of the heart. One can tell just by listening that Mr. Jackson is a very centered soul with the goal in life of bringing his wonderful music to the masses. HIs influences range from blues to country to american roots music, all coming together to form this amazing gumbo of sounds to delight even the most casual listener of jazz.

I listened to the track Train to Gronigen as I took a long walk through the park. It conjured visions of the whimsical colors of spring and lined up perfectly as I noticed children playing hop scotch! I found the track entitled Your Eyes quite romantic and soothing at the same time.

I plan to enjoy this disc again and again and you can too! To catch Ron Jackson live is a guitar lover’s dream! To stay abreast of the happenings in the continuing journey of this revered jazz veteran, you may check his schedule here, and be sure to purchase Akustik Invent Yours today!
