This year, the All-State ensemble will be joined by special guest Javon Jackson, an acclaimed jazz tenor saxophonist who first rose to international prominence as a member of legendary drummer Art Blakey’s group, the Jazz Messengers. A member of the first generation of musicians to combine tradition with neo-jazz, Jackson’s solo work has since blended hard bop with soul, funk and R&B influences. This annual event is presented by NJPAC’s Arts Education Department and the New Jersey Music Educators Association.
