ELDREDGE JACKSON

About Eldredge: Although a native of New Orleans, Jackson’s musical talent was infused with gospel and R&B while growing up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and performing at his father’s church. The encouragement he received from this large congregation helped him hone his skills as a musician and composer while performing on keyboards, piano, drums, bass, guitar and, of course, the saxophone. Jackson’s influences also stemmed from the soulful jazz style of legends he’s admired such as: David Sanborn, Grover Washington, Jr. and Dexter Gordon.

Genre: Soulful and Classic Jazz

The trio plays original jazz music written by the guitarist and leader of the group, Max Ridgway, who is a 1990 graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston.
