Biography of Julian Jackson

Julian Jackson

Julian Jackson was brought up in a musical family in Liverpool, so Julian's choice of a career in music was no surprise. Whilst studying at Music College in Liverpool, Julian reigned for 3 years as the Hohner British Harmonica Champion.
Julian moved to London to become the only Harmonica player to ever study at both The Guildhall School Of Music & The Royal Academy of Music. His unique style & ability at both jazz & classical Harmonica has won him the recognition of many musicians & composers including jazz pianist Julian Josephs, and Jazz legend "Toots" Thielemans. Julian played in the touring quintet of Julian Josephs who commented "his playing has great soul and great melodic content and logic". His influences include Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, John Coltrane Larry Adler & "Toots" Thielemans. Julian has been fortunate to study with "Toots”, who gave Julian one of his personalised Harmonicas. The only other person to have received one of these is Quincy Jones.
