Jazz Drummer Duffy Jackson

UNCW's Jazz Festival gets underway today... This year's featured composer is drummer Duffy Jackson. Jackson would be famous enough in his own right, after all, he's made a career playing with the likes of Artie Shaw and Dizzie Gillespie... But he's also the son of legendary bassist, Chubby Jackson. Duffy Jackson recently got on the phone with WHQR's own jazz host, Gano Evans, to talk about everything from running afoul of Count Bassie to teaching the next generation of musicians...

Ft. Lauderdale, FL – Drummer Duffy Jackson is the featured performer at the 24th annual UNCW Jazz Festival. You can find out more at our Cultural Calendar.

Support for local arts and cultural programming comes from WHQR members, and Landfall Foundation, an organization of residents who support projects enhancing health, education and the arts in New Hanover, Brunswick and Pender Counties.
