In Memoriam: Ronald Shannon Jackson



It is with sincere regret that we announce the passing of Paiste artist Ronald Shannon Jackson. The renowned fusion drummer passed away on Saturday, October 19 at his home in Fort Worth, Texas – he was 73. Ronald Shannon Jackson joined the Paiste family in June of 1981.

Jackson was a renowned drummer, composer, and bandleader who supported some of the giants of avant-garde jazz, including Cecil Taylor, Ornette Coleman, and Albert Ayler. As a leader, he was instrumental in launching the careers of Bill Frisell, Billy Bang, Robin Eubanks, Vernon Reid, and Melvin Gibbs, among others. In recent years he continued pushing boundaries with adventurous players like Vijay Iyer, Joseph Bowie, and James “Blood” Ulmer.
