About the album

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.
Der in Milwaukee ansässige Trompeter Eric Jacobson, mit dem er schon seit fast einem Jahrzehnt zusammenarbeitet, wandte sich an seine Freunde in Chicago, um den Kern seines Quintetts für Discover zu bilden. Der Saxophonist Geof Bradfield, der Bassist Dennis Carroll, der Schlagzeuger George Fludas und der äußerst hilfsbereite New Yorker Pianist Bruce Barth sind harmonisch, rhythmisch und gefühlvoll aufeinander abgestimmt und bieten eine inspirierte Umgebung für Jacobsons Reise durch vier neue Kompositionen, die mit zeitlosen Standards durchsetzt sind. Erfreulich intuitiv, sympathisch und immer schwungvoll liefert Jacobsons Quintett eine faszinierende Reihe von musikalischen Entdeckungen.

Composer(s)

Dizzy Gillespie

Dizzy Gillespie, barely twenty years earlier a visionary musician and genuine revolutionary, the co-founder of bebop with Charlie Parker and Thelonius Monk, as well as the veritable matchmaker behind the sensual fusion of Afro-Cuban rhythms and modern jazz, was no exception to this massive movement that stripped jazz of its former standing. He was famous far beyond the inner sanctum of jazz lovers: his clowning antics, exaggerated by his legendary outsized jowls, gave the image of a jester blowing endlessly into an improbably shaped angled trumpet with its copper bell splendidly facing skyward. But to an audience in the thrall of new sounds, new grooves, new attitudes, Gillespie suddenly appeared to be a mere caricature of his past glory, conveying...
