Jackson's Ville is an album by American jazz vibraphonist Milt Jackson featuring performances recorded in 1956 and released on the Savoy label.[1][2]


The Allmusic review by Jim Todd stated: "This fine 1956 date features Jackson leading a session that moves with ease and authority through a relaxing eight-minute ride on Charlie Parker's "Now's the Time," an Ellington ballad medley, and a pair of the vibist's own blues-based, hard bop compositions. The real treat here is Lucky Thompson's tenor sax. The Don Byas-influenced Thompson has a sound that invites the listener to luxuriate in its grace and strength".[3]
