Eric Jacobson – Discover

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


With a collaborative history going back almost a decade, Milwaukee-based trumpeter Eric Jacobson looked to his friends in Chicago to form the core of his quintet for Discover. Harmonically, rhythmically and soulfully in sync, saxophonist Geof Bradfield, bassist Dennis Carroll, drummer George Fludas, along with the supremely supportive NY pianist Bruce Barth, provide an inspired environment for Jacobson’s journey through four new compositions, interspersed with timeless standards. Delightfully intuitive, sympathetic and always swinging, Jacobson’s quintet delivers an intriguing set of musical discoveries.

“Eric is the real deal! A truly world class jazz trumpeter…strong, assured technique, a hip dark sound on the trumpet, and expressive without gimmicks.”
