Dave Jackson has been active on the UK improv scene for nearly 30 years. Wayward and impulsive, his work constantly pushes at the edges of what’s possible.
Best known for his excoriating sax explorations with the legendary Solar Fire Trio, Dave has also played with many other musicians who have crossed his path including Chris Corsano, Assif Tsahar, Jooklo Duo, Lol Coxhill, Paul Rutherford, Eddie Prevost, Part Wild Horses Manes On Both Sides, Dave Birchall, Phil Marks, Carlos Zingaro, Dirk Serries, THF Drenching and many others
