All right! OK!........If we're the summation of all that we've seen & heard.........Then, trumpeteer Dan Jacobs has chosen a winner to aspire to, in the dedication of his new CD to his buddy & mentor, Bobby Shew (jazz trumpet soloist). If you peruse Dan's take of the (2) eternal standards, 'Angel Eyes' & 'Like Someone In Love,' I sense most will agree with me! Dan's command of his artistry demands careful listening....And unarguably Bobby Shew has inspired a new unique soloist in the guise of Dan Jacobs. I'm trying to suggest that Jacobs has already established his persona as a exceptional player-stylist. His solos are articulate, haunting, expansive, challenging, advanced, accurate, intense etc. Hell, he's simply one of our new great offerings to the jazz world.
