Tenor Saxophonist Fred Jackson and Co.:"Hootin' 'n' Tootin'"

9:06pm - 12:37am

Little is known about Fred Jackson except he was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1929 which today would make him 87 or 88. if he is still with us. He dropped out of the music scene around 1965 and nothing since. He came from a Rhythm and Blues background and worked with Little Richard, B.B. King and especially Lloyd Price where he was Mr. Price's musical director. Jackson is a tenor saxophonist in the style of Illinois Jacquet, Gene Ammons, Houston Person etc. Big sound, bluesy concept and total control of the horn from top to bottom. He appeared as a sideman on Baby Face Willette's classic Blue Note date called "Face to Face" and impressed Blue Note's honcho Alfred Lion who loved Jackson's playing. He did two dates for the label but only one was issued and it's tonight's Jazz feature. Fred Jackson appears with his Lloyd Price cohorts, Earl Vandyke on organ, Willie Jones on guitar and Wilbert (aka G.T.) Hogan on drums. Seven Jackson original;s reflect his blues and R&B background. "Hootin' 'n' Tootin" is a boss date.
