Emerging Jazz Artist Spotlight: Jacam Manricks Quintet
Saxophonist/Composer Jacam Manricks comes west with his quintet in support of his newest record - Cloud Nine.
As a composer, soloist and ensemble leader, Jacam has recorded four albums to date (Sky's the Limit, Labyrinth, Trigonometry, and Could Nine). His music has been highly commended in major jazz magazines, websites and newspapers in the United States, Canada, France, Italy, Ireland, Germany, Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere. In 2009 Jacam released his second album Labyrinth, which received rave reviews in JazzTimes, Downbeat, All About Jazz-NY, Sydney Morning Herald and the Irish Times among others.
Labyrinth consists of Jacam's compositions for jazz quintet and chamber orchestra and features some of New York's finest jazz soloists (Ben Monder guitars, Thomas Morgan bass, Tyshawn Sorey drums, Jacob Sacks piano and himself on saxophones/woodwinds).
"Labyrinth is a piece of work that does for jazz what author Walt Whitman did for existentialism, he gives the genre meaning that people can relate to and apply to their own lives." Jazz Times
The event will expose Bakersfield to a new, young and vibrant jazz voice! We are happy to host this young, gifted player.
