Geof Bradfield Quintet: Quaver

Read "Quaver" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Eric Jacobson: Discover

Read "Discover" reviewed by Jack Bowers

If trumpeter Eric Jacobson's name doesn't ring a bell, it could be because he is based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, not in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles or any other jazz mecca. What's more, Jacobson has not recorded often; Discover is only his second date as leader or co-leader. Hindrances aside, Jacobson's is a name with ...
