Performing Songs from her new album: Sacred Places. $15 Cash/Check · Doors at 6:15 *Cash Bar (not food service)* Call (405)974-2100 to reserve seats. Classical contemporary in genre, the piano compositions of Holly Jones are described as meditative, impressionistic, thematic, yet transcendent of time and space.  Holly will be featuring fresh compositions from her fourth album, "Sacred Places," set to be released May, 2019, at the UCO Jazz Lab June 6, 2019, at 7:00 p.m.  Holly describes her inspiration of "Sacred Places":  "A 'sacred place' is the moment in time when one recognizes they are participating in something greater than themselves. This can happen anywhere...in daily conversation, our 'work', and what otherwise might be misperceived as a mundane aspect of life.  We have to look for these sacred places.  They give  us  the  richness and  authenticity of  our experiences." Born in western Kentucky, Holly began studying violin at age three, piano at eight, and creating compositions on the piano by nine.  Her training includes many years of private study, as well as private classical piano and composition study at Indiana University.   Holly's solo piano debut album, "Traveler" was released in 2003.  Her second album "Storyteller" was released in 2016, followed by the orchestrated version of "Storyteller" in 2017, by Ludek Drizhal, featuring Holly at the piano and the Prague Metropolitan Orchestra. As a physical therapist, Holly has an inherent understanding of the healing power of music, and enjoys the art of creating pieces that are "good for the neurology."  She lives with her husband, dear Fred, and beloved doggy daughter, Darbie,  in Edmond, OK and loves playing in StudioJones, the self-proclaimed "best practice room in the world." "I wish for my music to reach the truth in each person listening...to help them take pause in the busyness of life and to bring them peace and clarity. I envision that it is most likely played as background music...it provides a setting of peace...but when one listens closer, it can 'take them away'...and always to the best place..."

This multitalented musician is bringing new flavor to the music scene with his blend of traditional and smooth jazz peppered with a dash of gospel. Although a native of New Orleans, Jackson’s musical talent was infused with gospel and R&B while growing up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and performing at his father’s church. The encouragement he received from this large congregation helped him hone his skills as a musician and composer while performing on keyboards, piano, drums, bass, guitar and, of course, the saxophone. Jackson’s influences also stemmed from the soulful jazz style of legends he’s admired such as: David Sanborn, Grover Washington, Jr. and Dexter Gordon. Named El-Jack by his fans, Jackson has opened for or shared festival stages with a talented cross-section of urban jazz and R&B greats: Wayman Tisdale, Najee, Howard Hewett, Jeffrey Osborne, Angela Winbush, Stanley Jordan, Dru Hill, Shirley Murdock, SOS Band, Con-Funk-Shun, Tom Braxton and fellow Tulsans Charlie Wilson and The GAP Band. Recently he performed on the national Soul Food Festival Tour, bringing his trademark sound and sultry spontaneity to audiences as the sole instrumentalist on a bill with R&B legends Peabo Bryson and The Whispers. The tour made stops in Jacksonville, Kansas City, Baton Rouge and Nashville. Jackson enjoys sharing his unique style with jazz fans throughout the country. Recently he gigged at the Long Beach Jazz Festival, the Red Cat Jazz Café in Houston, the Brooklyn Jazz Café in Dallas, Humphreys in San Diego and Blues Alley in D.C. In Oklahoma, Jackson is well known for his regular gigs at Tulsa hotspots, and his Winelight Jazz shows along with headlining at casinos such as River Spirit, Hard Rock, Osage Million Dollar Elm and RiverWind. He’s also a huge draw at Mayfest, Tulsa’s largest outdoor festival. The heavy gigging saxophonist has exhilarated audiences at nearly every jazz event in Oklahoma including The Charlie Christian Jazz Festival and the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame Jazz Fest. One of the highlights of his career was collaborating with the late great Wayman Tisdale on his debut album. The duo had been friends since middle school and watched each other develop musically over the years. One summer when Tisdale was between seasons in the NBA, he sat in with Jackson’s band at the local Greenwood Jazz Festival, and by 2008 their friendship had come full circle with the release of Listening Pleasure. Unfortunately the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of famer Wayman Tisdale passed away shortly after the official release of the album. But his protégé continues to keep his spirit alive by paying tribute to his jazz contributions and their friendship during every live performance.
