“Another solid mainstream release. Mr. Jackson has great tone and his playing is wonderfully uncluttered. The trio with bass and drums creates a lovely balance with the guitar and Mr. Jackson's approach. What's particularly notable is how melodic that appr” KTAO, Taos, New Mexico

“Very enjoyable disc. Will start spinning this week!”-Larry Dane-Kellogg, WHCJ , Savannah


“Standards and Other Songs” is a work of pure art.” - Musical Memoirs


"it’s what he does with melody and structure that has me in awe.” - Carol Banks Weber Medium



"Well done throughout." Chris Spector, Midwest Record Recap



“Standards and Other Songs” is a solid piece of work that showcases the talents of master guitarist Ron Jackson while offering an assortment of jazz standards and instrumental arrangements of classic rock, soul and contemporary R&B songs.”
-Brenda Nelson-Strauss, Black Grooves, Reviews of new black releases


Joined by rising stars Nathan Brown on upright bass and Darrell Green on drums, Ron's new album, "Standards And Other Songs', is an intriguing, multifaceted set of new and soon-to-be jazz standards that will appeal to audiences of every age and taste. The trio mixes well-known classics like Cole’s Porter’s “From This Moment On,” and Irving Berlin’s “The Best Thing for You is Me,” with Jackson’s adventurous interpretations of Van Morrison’s “Moon Dance” and hip hop star Drake’s “Passion Fruit.” About Jazz Standards and Other Songs, Jackson says: “What makes a jazz standard? For Standards and Other Songs, I wanted to make a record brimming with personal favorites, tunes I enjoy hearing, classic songs I feel have stood the test of time. Most are songs I’ve heard many times —either while driving, randomly streaming or crisscrossing radio stations, or just being out in the world, in the streets, the shops or at a show. For me these songs have the power to transport you, to trigger memories and inspire happiness. A pleasure to make, Jazz Standards and Other Songs is heartfelt and genuine, an album I hope will spark feelings of joy and love.”
