Russell Jackson, born in Memphis TN, 1954.
Toured with the B.B. King Orchestra six and a half years. I played in some of the most prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall,The Grand Ole Oprey, Smithsonian Institute. I also played the Moscow Theatre in the USSR in 1979.
During the years in the BB King Orchestra, I had a chance to play with some of the music industries' greats. Everybody sat in, toured, and played with him. After BB King's band, I went to school to study music. LA was the place to go, so I went to Dick Grove School of Music and received an Associate Degree in Music.
While living in Vancouver I joined forces with Kenny 'Blues Boss' Wayne, and recorded a Juno award winning CD.
