American avantgarde guitar icon Michael Gregory Jackson is playing with his Danish quartet Michael Gregory Jackson Clarity Quartet.
Michael Gregory Jackson is a legend among New York jazz musicians. He was a cornerstone in New Yorks loft jazz scene in the 70’s and 80’s, and became famous for reinventing the electric guitarplay. He has performed with the biggest names in jazz, pop, blues and improvised music – genres that have inspired his Clarity Quartet.
Drummer Kresten Osgood has joined the Clarity Quartet. Osgood is well known as one of the most important Danish jazz artitst in the last decades. His musical interaction with Jackson will be a mindblowing experience!
“After Before is an excellent CD that steams with fresh spontaneous energy and variation, but also leaves place for spacious poetry and some surprising ballads featuring Jackson’s light-textured voice. Especially remarkable is the organic spark that flows between the musicians, and Jackson’s very special, angular and virtuoso approach to the guitar adds a special personality to the recording.”
