Event

Christian Jacob at the Sound Room
Christian Jacob is a lyrical jazz pianist who first gained wide spread exposure as co-leader, arranger and pianist with the Tierney Sutton Band. While recording eight critically acclaimed CDs with the band Christian also built a substantial career as a solo artist and leader. He has arranged and conducted around the world, performing with big bands, symphonies and even with the King of Thailand.

In addition to receiving five Grammy nominations for his work with the Tierney Sutton Band, Christian released five outstanding trio recordings. Maynard Ferguson plucked Christian from the ranks of an early 1990s edition of Ferguson's Big Bop Nouveau band to be the first featured artist in the "Maynard Ferguson Presents" series on Concord Records. He produced Christian's first two trio recordings: "Maynard Ferguson Presents Christian Jacob" and "Time Lines".

After leaving Ferguson's band, Christian quickly began performing and recording with many of today's jazz legends: Flora Purim and Airto Moreira, Randy Brecker, Miroslav Vitous, Benny Golson and Bill Holman to name just a few.
His newest collaboration has been as musical director for Broadway legend Betty Buckley. Branching out into the musical theater genre has proven the natural fit for Christian, as it allows him to draw beautifully from his classical background. Having contributed to more than fifty recordings Christian focused on a project he'd been pondering for years, a solo piano recording. Beautiful Jazz: A private concert is a dedication to the music that drew Christian away from the classical world and introduced him to the beautiful world of jazz.The CD was released in April 2014 to rave reviews:


"The phenomenal pianist Christian Jacob-..-..created dense, polyrhythmic thickets that overlaid two or more Latin grooves, through which Mr. Jacob's piano solos sprang out and hurtled."~The New York Times (Stephen Holden)

Here is a rare opportunity to see a world-renowned jazz artist in an intimate setting.
