Illinois Jacquet

Biography

Illinois Jacquet's "take no prisoners" tenor saxophone style brings together Swing, Bop and blues. In the 1940s, he was a star soloist with Lionel Hampton's band, where his lean but tough sound helped define what came to be known as R&B. Jacquet wasn't afraid to add Bop to his bag of tricks, and he went on to a rewarding solo career, recording prolifically.
