Anthony Jackson, the six-string bassist

Happy belated birthday, Anthony Jackson!

American Anthony Jackson (b. 23 June 1952) played with Japanese pianist Hiromi and Brittish drummer Simon Phillips in April Jazz, Espoo Finland a year ago. I loved his energetic playing style with a six-string bass he developed early 1970’s.

In this video you can see and hear the play of this great trio.
