Tyrone Jackson performs an eclectic blend of classic and contemporary jazz. His jazz cd, DEDICATED, is Tyrone at his finest -- creative composition, wonderful collaborations and technical mastery. Tyrone was born in the birth place of jazz, New Orleans. There, he honed his skills learning traditional, latin, and fusion jazz. An accomplished composer as well, Tyrone utilizes a counterpoint of harmonic balance with melodic lyricism and rhythmic ostinato.

Tyrone has studied and performed classical music for 20 years, jazz for 16 years, and R&B/funk for 16 years. He is a Jazz Competition winner. Tyrone studied music at the University of New Orleans. He has studied privately under Ellis Marsalis (renowned father of Wynton and Branford Marsalis) and Mary Ann Bulla (classical).

Some highlights of Tyrone’s music career include playing with Earl Klugh, Melba Moore, Wynton Marsalis, Wes Anderson, Greg Dawson; touring Italy and Austria with the UNO Jazz Band, in 1997. Touring Brazil with Michael Ward in 1996. Opening for Gerald Albright, Spyro Gyra, the Crusaders, and Chaka Kahn. Touring Thule, Greenland in 2005. Performing with FutureMan (Roy Wooton) in Mableton, Ga. In 2006.

His musical influences include Herbie Hancock, Oscar Peterson, Joe Sample, George Duke, McCoy Tyner, and Earth, Wind & Fire.

Music Philosophy: “We must remember that playing music is an extension of ourselves. Every experience that we’ve had, and will have, will eventually trickle into what we play and how we play.”

November 8: Will Scruggs, jazz saxophone
