"New Chamber Music" Album

 

Within the next few years, Jackson plans to record and release his first full-length album of orginal compositions.  The disc will consist of five chamber and solo pieces Jackson has composed since graduating from Northwestern State University in May 2013.  Jackson views all of these as mature compositions, although each represents a different facet of his compositional language.

 

Jackson plans for this to be a high-quality recording.  If you would like to assist with Jackson's financial obligations to this project, please consider making a secure online donation through Jackson's Go Fund Me page.  Jackson will also be hiring musicians to learn and perform these works.  Please message Jackson via the Contact page if you are interested in participating in this project as a performer.

 

This project is, albeit, in its early stages, but please continue to check back over the next few months for updates.  When CDs are available for purchase, this page will also become the hub for sales.
