At the same time powerful and very accurate, Cliff Jackson was among the finest stride piano players in Harlem. Neither forerunner, nor obsolete, he played with a deep respect of harmony and melody, with a great swing. His strong pulse on the left hand can be recognized among thousands, by his way of doubling basses.
