Video Sample:

Jackson Truett was born in York, a highly industrialized south eastern Pennsylvania city surrounded by farmlands, the Susquehanna river and the Pocono mountains.

He began studying piano at the age of seven with Lloyd Philby, an east coast concert pianist. Jackson studied the compositions of all the great classical masters until he reached seventeen. He then began several years of ear and improvisational training with Bill Collins and Dick Gruver. They both played modern music as soloists and with trios and big bands.

Jackson began playing organ with local R & B Bands and soon thereafter was touring with "Jay & The Techniques", a nationally known act with two gold records. The group played all major venues including TV appearances on "American Bandstand", The "Ed Sullivan Show", "The Upbeat Show", "Jerry Blavat", and "Hi-Lite". They played the first open air rock concert in Cleveland, Ohio attended by 80,000 people. They played for the "Duponts" and "Rockefellers" in their homes. They played at "Madison Square Gardens", "Grossingers", "Atlantic City" and "PJ's" in Los Angeles. They played the University/College circuit and major city municipal auditoriums. They often shared the entertainment bill with other acts such as the "Delphonics", "Lou Christy", "Gary Pucket and The Union Gap", "The Dells", "Vanilla Fudge", "Herman's Hermits", "John Fred and the Playboy Band", "The Turtles", "The Millionaires", "The Parliaments", "The O'Jays", "The Ohio Players", "Jay and the Americans", "The Manhattans", "The Spinners", "The Rascals" and a few giants such as "Duke Ellington", "Earl (Fatha) Hines", "The Step Brothers" and "Etta James".

After leaving Jay & The Techniques, Jackson accepted an invitation to join several other musician/business people in Jackson, Miss. The proposal was to build an entertainment complex complete with a Nite Club, Lounge and Recording Studio. The facility had closed circuit TV for live recordings, a studio large enough for a small orchestra, a control room designed by JBL and a quality staff! Jackson met some excellent musicians and industry people while building and co-operating "Jackson Sound Studios".

Huey Meaux, a successful record producer, invited Jackson to Houston, Texas to work with "HeatherBlack", a hot regional act and to work as a studio musician. Jackson played and recorded with Heatherblack and "Joey Long" among others. He co-produced an album on "Joey Long".
Once again Jackson retrurned to Jackson, Miss. where he redesigned a two story building into a French Restaurant, a Nautical Lounge and an Oyster Bar. Jackson formed several bands to entertain at "The French Quarter". His band became known as "Jack Daniel's and Co.". The famous Bourbon Whiskey distiller, known by the same name, became a limited sponsor. He entertained in Jackson and on the Gulf Coast while also co-owning a coast to coast trucking company and a construction company.

Destined to become a Texan, Jackson moved back to Houston and began entertaining at the Adam's Mark Hotel. After several years with the Adam's Mark, Jackson began his 20 plus years tenure with the University Club as House Pianist/Bandleader.
