Jacob Szekely Trio
Upon listening to The Jacob Szekely Trio, Grammy winning cellist and Berklee professor Eugene Friesen  proclaimed,  "This is the first time that I have heard a cellist make a convincing case as a soloist in a modern jazz context."  With influences that range from classical/jazz/funk/rock and even indian, the music is highly complex rhythmically and harmonically, while always grooving with an unfailing sense of melody.

The cello in Szekely's special hands is transformative, literally. At times a guitar, a bass guitar, a violin, a harp. But always, always a cello. Is there anyone else in the world who plays the instrument like this?  A musician who could clearly play classical  and at times nearly does here  but is broadly considered a jazz musician.

Better to forget labels. To paraphrase Duke Ellington, there really is only good music and bad music.  This is the good stuff.
