Delray Beach Arts Garage - Jazz Project Music Series Presents Duffy Jackson Big Band
Aug 11, 2012 08:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Longtime South Florida jazz fans certainly will be out in force to greet drummer Duffy Jackson, holding court behind his drum kit while swinging ferociously and cracking wise. Not only is Duffy among the swingingest drummers around, he's also one of the funniest. But he comes by his entertainment roots naturally: His dad was legendary jazz bassist Chubby Jackson. And certainly, Duffy has backed his share of legends, among them Duke Ellington, Lionel Hampton, Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Carter. Now living in Nashville, the drummer returns to South Florida for his Arts Garage gig, where he'll provide the propulsive engine to a roaring 17-piece big band.
