Francis Jacob: Jazz Passport

Jason Crane By

Sign in to view read count
On the new episode of The Jazz Session, Jason Crane interviews French guitarist Francis Jacob. Jacob's career has taken him around the world: France, Switzerland, Boston, Brazil, Paris and now New York. Along the way, he's picked up a gift for improvisation and a taste for West African music. On his new CD, Side By Side (2006), he combines his many influences and creates two albums in one — the same tunes, played by two wonderfully different bands.
