Noah Jackson in New Job at Cliff Bell’s

Bassist Noah Jackson relocated from New York to his hometown Detroit less than a year ago to continue his musical career. He still performs with his own group Full Circle and has recently taken a job as Music Director at Cliff Bell’s in Detroit, where he replaces another great Detroit musician, drummer RJ Spangler. Cliff Bell’s has restarted its music offerings this month and Jackson hopes to introduce dancing at the club.

Jackson is a powerful bassist and has played with many big names in the Big Apple, like Abdullah Ibrahim and Branford Marsalis. In a recent interview with Veronica Johnson of Metro Times, Jackson says that “I’ve always felt that Detroit was going to be a major factor in my life one way or the other, and that it was a major component towards my personal artistic identity.”
