Milt Jackson i Seattle, Washington (ca. 1980)

Milton Jackson (født 1. januar 1923 – død 9. oktober 1999) var en amerikansk jazzvibrafonist, ofte kalt den beste musikeren på sitt instrument, og en av de viktigste personene innen bebop. Leilighetsvis spilte han også piano og var dessuten en dyktig vokalist (eks. "Time on my hands" på CD-en "The champ" med Dizzy Gillespie's gruppe). Han ble oppdaget av Dizzy Gillespie i 1946, og spilte i starten sammen med ham. Milt Jackson har også arbeidet med kjente jazzmusikere som Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, BB King, John Coltrane, Wes Montgomery och Ray Charles. Han var en av grunnleggerne av gruppa The Modern Jazz Quartet.
