    Ronald Shannon Jackson and the Decoding Society Ronald Shannon Jackson and the Decoding SocietyRonald Shannon Jackson $20.00 +fees & tax BUY 6:30pm Kitchen and Bar Opens7:30pm Theater Doors Open8:30pm ShowtimeAll AgesDescriptionRonald Shannon Jackson and the Decoding SocietyLegendary, Jazz Drummer and Fort Worth native, Ronald Shannon Jackson makes his much anticipated Kessler Theater debut. His unusual style draws from both traditional jazz and marching bands. His band , the Decoding Society of the 1980s, has been dubbed free funk: a blend of funk rhythm and free jazz improvisation. The decoding Society learned from the example of Ornette Coleman's Prime Time and are a logical extension of the group. Jackson played professionally in Texas with James Clay when he was 15. He moved to New York in 1966, where he worked with Byard Lancaster, Charles Mingus, Betty Carter, Stanley Turrentine, Jackie McLean, McCoy Tyner, Kenny Dorham, and most significantly Albert Ayler (1966-1967), among others. He took time off of the scene and then joined Ornette Coleman's Prime Time (1975-1979). Jackson also worked with Cecil Taylor (1978-1979) and James "Blood" Ulmer (1979-1980). The Decoding Society (formed in 1979), through the years, featured many talented and advanced improvisers, with the best-known ones being Vernon Reid, Zane Massey, Billy Bang, and Byard Lancaster. Jackson also played with the explosive group Last Exit (starting in 1986), and in the early '90s with Power Tools. Jackson's most recent tours include performances in Paris, Amsterdam, Cologne, Rome, Padua, Florence, and Vienna. We are glad to have him back home in North Texas for a rare performance. Melvin Gibbs will join on bass. Legendary, Jazz Drummer and Fort Worth native, Ronald Shannon Jackson makes his much anticipated Kessler Theater debut.
