8th Annual Yale Jazz Fest

Join us on Saturday night for our closing show, featuring acclaimed guitarist Michael Gregory Jackson. Jackson has tread a winding musical path over his 40-plus year career, embracing everything from creative music, jazz, blues, rock and electronica soundscapes to harmonically rich and lyrically-deep vocal tunes, with the complex arrangements and subtleties that are a signature of his music. Called an “unsung innovator” by Bill Frisell, Jackson was among the generation of jazz guitarists in the 1970s to establish a sound and musical path for the instrument during the heyday of the loft scene. Over the last two decades, Jackson has taught and led creative workshops at a wide variety of institutions in the U.S. and abroad.
