Anthony Jackson

A session giant and among the most spirited and successful proponents of the extended range bass guitar – in particular his “contrabass” six string -  Anthony Jackson’s influence and impact on every conceivable genre of popular music is incalculable.

From his iconic picked motif on the O’Jay’s “For the Love of Money,” to his stellar work on thousands of recordings and concert performances including Luther Vandross, Steely Dan, Chaka Kahn, Paul Simon, Michel Petrucciani, Hiromi, Chick Corea, Al Di Meola, Mike Stern, and Robert Flack to cite an extremely select few, Jackson never fails to break ground as a melodic groove master.

Sans Anthony Jackson, the electric bass as we know it is limited to four strings.
