D.D. Jackson

I am a two-time Emmy Award-winning composer, and Juno Award-winning jazz pianist and educator. As a composer, I specialize in writing, arranging, and producing memorable, custom-made music for t.v., film & other media. I consider myself an "artistic problem solver": I strive to get to the essential conceptual truth of what the client is looking for - and to express it in a creative and supportive way.

In Memory of 9/11

I thought it fitting given the 9/11 anniversary to include in my latest D.D. Jackson's Living Jazz Podcast #18 a piece I wrote in memory of the victims, written for my Justin Time CD “Suite for New York” and entitled "Final Invocation (Towers of Light)". In the Podcast, I also discuss my experiences with Myspace and reflect on the state of jazz in this new, instant-access age. I hope you enjoy it.
