Chase Jackson

Currently attending the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in the Jazz Studies Department, Chase Jackson has been performing music since age nine when he began playing vibraphone. Born in Oakland California in 1991, Jackson attended Berkeley High School, an institution notable for turning out jazz greats such as Joshua Redman, Benny Green, Ambrose Akinmusire, Charlie Hunter, and Justin Brown among many others. Performing in the large jazz ensemble, lead by Charles Hamilton, in addition to leading numerous student formed combos, Chase began to compose and arrange his own original music. During this time he concurrently studied vibraphone with percussionist Tommy Kesecker.
