Personalities | Papa Charlie Jackson | Twenties | Jazz & Blues
(Vocals, banjo, c. 1890–1938)
New Orleans-born Charlie Jackson brought a jazzman’s sophistication to an instrument still too often overlooked by blues historians. He alternated single-string solos with percussive chording and dexterous fingerpicking, allowing him to bridge styles and genres with rare facility. He released more than 60 sides of his own, and he also recorded with Freddie Keppard, Tiny Parham and Kid Ory, as well as both Ma Rainey and Ida Cox.
