Gordon Lee receives First Carlton Jackson Award at Seaside Festival 2024 / Coffeeshop Conversations @ Artichoke Music #413

By TOM D'ANTONI // Gordon Lee is surprised with the first annual Carlton Jackson Award at the 2024 Seaside Jazz and Blues Festival.

We’re not at the Café at Artichoke Music this time. We’re in Seaside Oregon at the Seaside Jazz and Blues Festival on March 16rh for a very special occasion .

We told composer/pianist Gordon Lee that we wanted to talk to him onstage about the set he was about to play and also his new album.

In reality we were going to present to him the first annual award in the name of the late beloved drummer and teacher Carlton Jackson for Excellence in Musical Education and Musicianship.

Gordon, a friend and long-time musical collaborator with Carlton did not know anything about it. We surprised him. It was quite a moment.
