We saw this video on a social network and had to repost it. We absolutely love jazz!. It was also very excitng to find a sistah floutist of the caliber of Ms. Jackson. Now, some of you may think that is strange of us to say this, however instrumental jazz, like African drumming, is still very much a male dominated field. Though artists are usually the first social group to move barriers, there are still walls to break down and doors to open and movement can be slow indeed.
We don’t know Ms. Jackson’s musical story, but she stands in front of this band with confidence and mastery. She is definitely there for the music, all else be damned. What ever the journey to get here, we are glad to have heard her music. We hope to see more and hope you enjoy this performance.
