Album Notes

"Dan Jacobs' trumpet solo style is unique and original, his tone is clean and pure and he can go upstairs on a moments notice. He has what every musician strives for and rarely achieves . . . their own identity." - John Gilbert, Jazz Review.com

"Dan, I enjoyed your trumpet playing very much. You're a great jazz player and I loved your tone. Your command of the instrument is ferocious!"
- Wayne Jackson, trumpet player with "The Memphis Horns."

"Wow! Excellent CD. Beautiful trumpet playing, very lyrical, good lines, clear sound, very tasteful indeed."
- Bobby Shew - international trumpet master and teacher

"Dan Jacobs' trumpet playing is clearly about taste and musicality. Technique serves the music. His sense of time is rock solid, enabling him to play right in the center of the groove, or sensitively lay back, behind the beat, to infuse live, in-the-moment emotion into his music. Jacobs' sound is very attractive here - not only because of his lines, but just to savor some of the long tones with which he maturely begins his improvisations. Slow ballads have a way of separating the more experienced players from their less experienced counterparts. Dan Jacobs' sound is completely exposed here, and he expresses himself magnificently."
- Winthrop Bedford, Writer-reviewer, JAZZ IMPROV magazine.

"Trumpeter Dan Jacobs' playing is very evocative and heartfelt. Intriguingly so. I particularly like his sense of space in his playing; I love guys who are so confident in what they have to say that they're not afraid to let the silences add depth to the overall picture." - John Hammel, WNTI - FM, jazz writer and reviewer.

This is a lyrical, melodic sojourn into straight-ahead jazz from Jacobs brothers, Dan (trumpet, flugelhorn), Ron (drums), and Chuck (bass), and the results are incredibly tasty and listenable. You'll definitely hear a Chet Baker quality to Dan Jacob's playing, which adds depth and richness to the arrangements. This one's a no-brainer - pick up a copy of this one, and set your musical clock to JAZZ STANDARD TIME!
~ Scott O'Brien www.smoothjazz.com

"Jazz Standard Time "is a thoroughly standout release. We Love it! Dan Jacobs is the consummate musician and we thank him for adding so much quality music to our radio shows.
- Joe Kelley,Host, The Upper Room, WVOF 88.5 FM
Fairfield, CT

Dan Jacobs is one helluva trumpet player! Everything on this CD is pleasing to the ear. Another impressive release from the folks at Sea Breeze."
- Jim Clark, Jazz Music Director/Host, KUSD-FM

How refreshing to have a new collection of favorite jazz standards by the Jacobs Brothers. Their CD "Jazz Standard Time" features strong musicianship and fine jazz arrangements of tunes like the Gershwin's Summertime, Rodgers and Hart's Falling in Love With Love and Cole Porter's Love for Sale. These tunes and the rest of the selections on this CD are beautifully done, and retain the lovely melodies and moods of the original songwriter. Yet, the fine playing of these musicians brings a fresh take to our favorite standards. This is a CD that will endure. It will be on our regular playlist for a long time to come.
- Mike Raymond, Jazz Director, WTIP-FM

Jazz Standard Time has appeal for all jazz aficionados by reaching the inner complex senses of the most critical jazz listener to the smooth jazz enthusiast looking to improve a glass of chardonnay at a cocktail party. Dan, Rod & Chuck Jacobs have created Jazz Standard Time in a way that jazz was meant be captured in a recorded format: fun, raw and by bringing the listener to a point that they sense as if the musicians are there performing live rather than traveling through the speakers. All three brothers are world-class musicians and that is mirrored within the project.
- by Rick Coates, Music Journalist

Judiciousness and taste are not by their nature things that spring up and grab you by the collar. Only after repeated hearings does one really appreciate the subtlety here: the expressiveness of the trumpet, the taste and drive of the guitar, the comfortable swing and spring of the rhythm section, and the extraordinarily pithy and well-integrated percussion work. Music like this can more than stand on its own with just the level of the musicianship . . . the message contained inside is a welcome bonus!
- Eric Hines, General Manager and Host WNMC Jazz Radio

It rarely gets better than this!!! I highly recommend it to any jazz enthusiast. And for those of you that want to start getting in to jazz for the first time, this is an excellent CD for diving in to the genre.

Dave Rich Architect / Jazz trumpet

Great Jazz Content
An unusual collection of Standards full of fresh expression and execution excellence.
Great synergy and a sence of togetherness that makes this a must play often set.
I had the great pleasure to play with Dan, and this is a super tutorial for any horn player that is looking for solid and well stated work to emulate.

Duke C. Cullinan

Way Above "Standard!"
The only thing "standard" about this cd is the selection of much-loved and played tunes. Otherwise, you're in for exceptional musicianship in terms of arrangements, feel, precision, and especially soloing. This has been playing at my restaurant and, despite the "standard" group of big name jazz and soft jazz artists, Jazz Standard Time is the only cd that consistently elicits questions like: "Who is that playing?" and "Can you find out the name of this cd?" If you love jazz standards (and who doesn't?) do yourself a favor and get this cd. Find out about the new state of the art.

Lisa Ramirez

Harmoniously Brilliant
This CD is one to add to your collection. I purchsed this CD for my father becaue he is fond of the late Chet Baker. After hearing the first song, Summertime, I just knew that my dad would appreciate this unique sound too! Jazz Standard Time has also become one of my favorites. I recommend it for anyone who enjoyes the sweet smooth sound of good Jazz. May it apart of your collection today!

Fred Beyerlein

Smooooth, gentle, and stimulating!
Have known Dan Jacobs for years but not from a musical viewpoint, I was blown away with this release. There is not a questionable cut on this CD, it starts strong and builds on itself. Very smooth, just the right blending of horn, base, drum, and guitar to tickel the ear and relax the frayed nerves.

Dave Leiman

Smooth and so easy to listen to and enjoy. The entire family loves it!
Smooth and so easy to enjoy. The artists don't complicate the music - they bring out it's best with fantastic musicianship and great interpretation - This is one CD that our entire family listens to over and over - Bravo!

The music is soothing & energizing all at the same time!
I have been listening to this CD from it's prerelease to now, nonstop! I carry it from my car into my house so I can have the sounds in my home as well! The music is both relaxing & energizing. And my 18 year-old-daughter fully enjoys it as well! It has been so fun listening to my friend Dan & his brothers - what a joy!

Ron Oates

Blood always tells the tale...
Dan Jacobs and I were in two different Navy Unit Bands together from 1964-67, and played many gigs together, as well. I was always excited to work with great talent such as his. Listening to the three brothers create and play together is a wonderful experience. In the studios here in Nashville where I have lived and worked for thirty-three years, we have a saying that we apply to vocal groups of siblings... "Blood always tells the tale". There is a wonderful melding of thought process and tone and timbre that simply is not present with singers who are not siblings... although great, it is not the same. It is the same here... Great work, guys. The guitarist, although not a blood relation,is a great addition... he fits the Brothers Jacobs' mold very well, indeed.


Really Excellent!!!
This CD is one of a kind! The Jacobs' brothers did an excellent job with this. It's music to my ears.
