Celebrating Frank's 83rd Birthday
Dec 10, 2008
Frank Jackson, long recognized as a brilliant jazz pianist and vocalist, bandleader, producer, and standup vocalist, is highly in demand performing and recording on the scene today in clubs, festivals and concerts. Born in Cleburne, Texas, and living in San Francisco since 1942, Frank Jackson, one of the "Bay Area Giants of Jazz," has for over 60 years been serving up his impeccable, elegant piano style, smooth warm vocals and unique phrasing. Frank's music is swinging at any tempo. His versatility ranges from uptempo, ballads, blues, latin, and instrumentals. His piano playing recalls the minimalism of Count Basie, the lushness of Duke Ellington, the two-handed melodic sound of Erroll Garner, and sheer virtuosity of Bud Powell.
