Jackson began his career as a jazz pianist/composer. He went on to record, perform, and tour with some of the most acclaimed names in jazz, including drummer Jack Dejohnette and saxophonists James Carter and David Murray. He has collaborated frequently with Questlove and The Roots, most recently at the theater of Madison Square Garden for the John Lennon 75th Birthday Concert and at Radio City Music Hall.

Here’s what the jazz community says about D.D. Jackson:
“There’s the kinetic jazz pianist D.D. Jackson, for instance, about whom the drummer complained, ‘I never get to enjoy playing with him because I’m too busy trying to top him. Damn you, D.D., I’m hurting.’”
-Questlove, in the Wall Street Journal (“Questlove Shuffles to Brooklyn”, 4/18/12)
“An extraordinary pianist whose technical bravura is matched by a capacious hunger for adventure.”
-Gary Giddins, the Village Voice
