10 MP3 Songs
EASY LISTENING: Instrumental Pop, NEW AGE: Contemporary Instrumental
My name is Miles Jackson. I have been playing the piano since I was five years old, and it is still my main instrument. I also play some accordion, mandolin, flute and drums.... Of course, now I play with a lot more electric keyboards, midi, computers and software. I started recording music in the mid eighties, and have been both performing and recording since then.
My wife, Jocelyne and I moved to Ma-Me-O Beach from Calgary on April 1st, 1997. Before that, I operated a project studio in Calgary for 15 years, Milestone Productions, and have an extensive background in midi sequencing.
Over the years, from about 1967 on, I played with many groups, including "Richter Ten", "Adanac Reply", "Barry Allen and the Cheyenne Winter", "Cannonball", "Redemption" from Edmonton, "Stratus Faction", "Backline Orchestra", the "Allen Sisters", "Black and White Affair", "Milestone Trio", the "Saturday Pro Big Band", "Band du Jour", "Tommy Hunter", "Neil Gow and the Five Knights", the "Carlene Friesen" band.... Where has all the time gone? :-)
Also, I toured with Frank Mills (Music Box Dancer) about three times a year as musical director up until he retired after Christmas of 2000, writing the arrangements, playing orchestral parts on the synthesizer and directing the choirs at Christmas time.
At Stampede time in Calgary, I continue to work with the pit band (Rockin'' Al and the Dream Crushers) at the Youth Talent contest at the Archie Boyce Theatre on the Stampede grounds, where we back up about 80 contestants each year! We have band leader Al Muirhead on trumpet and conducting, Steve Foster on drums, Kai Poscente playing bass, Bobby Cairns playing guitar, Eric Friedenberg on sax, flute, keys and clarinet, and yours truly, Miles Jackson on keyboards. Some of our past winners include Paul Brandt (My Heart Has a History), Gavin Hope (the Nylons), Bret Barrow, Billy Klippert (Canadian Idol), Maureen Murphy, last year''s winner, Tara Tennant - this year''s winner, and several others who have gone on to successful careers! This year has been year 27 for Al as bandleader, and 17 years for yours truly !
Over the past 10 years of operation, I have produced and arranged many CD''s ranging from folk to speed rock, classical and jazz to alphorn music; country to marching bands, choirs, and big band to inspirational and gospel music, native powwow music to comedy. Did I mention blues and R & B? Plus some music that defies description, as we know it today!
I like nothing more than working with other singer/song writers on their projects, either for demo purposes, or for commercial CD release. Let''s get together and make some great music!
