Cliff Jackson


Probably one of the most powerful stride pianists, Cliff Jackson never became everything famous within the jazz globe despite his skill. In 1923, he relocated to NY, where he used Lionel Howard’s Musical Aces in 1924, and freelanced. Jackson documented, in 1927, with Bob Fuller and Elmer Snowden, and formed a large music group (the Krazy Kats) that produced some exuberant recordings in 1930, including “Equine Feathers” and “The Terror.” From then on band split up, Jackson mainly worked like a soloist in NY clubs. He documented with Sidney Bechet during 1940-1941; lower some solos and Dixieland edges for Dark & Light (1944-1945); produced three solos for Disk (1945); led a music group to get a Swingville program (1961); and documented solo for Dark Lion, Ri-Disc, Jazzology, and Get good at Jazz (1969). Cliff Jackson can be noted in 1966 playing in a celebration (on Jazzology) along with his wife, Maxine Sullivan.
