Jackson Krall Jr. is a drum maker. Through the years Jackson's instruments have found their way into the hands of the world's greatest drummers and percussionists, and can be heard on recordings as well as in live performance by many bands, orchestras, and the most popular Broadway and Off-Broadway shows like "Lion King" and "Blue Man Group". In the early 1980s, under the leadership of Toni and Celia Nogueira, Jackson was a founding member and helped write the bylaws of New York's first samba school, the now legendary Empire Loisaida Escola de Samba. During the next several years he studied, played and paraded with all the great Brazilian percussionists living in or passing through New York at the time. Eventually Empire Loisaida faded into history, but Jackson remained and continues making instruments and playing avant Jazz drums in New York City.
