Album Notes
Lee Prosser, Jazz
COLDWATER is an exceptionally good listening experience, one that will enchant jazz audiences with its straight-ahead approach within a framework of solid contemporary jazz performances. The compositions are refreshingly honest and straight forward in their directness, filled with good harmony and melody.

These performances are flawless in their solo and group sets, and each musician is excellent. Wayne Peet on B3 organ gives outstanding performances as does Robert Jacobson on guitar, Clark Sommers on double bass, and Bryon Vannoy on drums. Jeff Eliassen is perfect on trumpet for these songs.

The songs include "Placerita Canyon," "Dusk," "Between B and G," "Banana Bread," among others. Each song reveals the talents of guitarist Robert Jacobson as a contemporary jazz composer.

This CD would make a nice gift for a friend or anybody who is interested in how a gifted composer/guitarist creates fine jazz music. COLDWATER is a nice listening experience, full of energy, original, soul, solid jazz foundations, and good old-fashioned listening enjoyment. Highly recommended.

Greg Burk, LA Weekly
"Jazz guitar" doesn't mean what it used to. With the improv scene lacking any dominant genre (bebop, funk-jazz, fusion), musicians can just play what they feel, and that's an advantage. On his new Coldwater, for instance, local guy Robert Jacobson gives you a sniff of Ornette, Steely Dan, bop and blues, but only a sniff because he's got a lot of ideas, and he wants them all to sound like him. Which they do. The common factors include and edgy electric-guitar tone from Jacobson, slightly sprung rhythms, and layered arrangements that allot each instrument it's own distinct space, Wayne Peet's organ often acting as a soulful foundation.

Must Have!
Robert hits some amazing chords in this recording that will keep you guessing at what's next. It's a delight all the way through and has found a permanent residence in by CD player. Each of the members brings you to the edge of your seat with their creativity and all around fun style. Try it out, you'll be grooving along!

Getting me through a long draft
Coldwater is in almost permanent residence in my CD player; I write to it constantly.

I am a jazz neophyte, but I hope my continued exploration of the form will be as rewarding as this CD.

Good job, Coldwater.

Ingenuitive and fresh ; unique
Robert has taken his sense of uniqueness and future sight and has (luckily for us) recorded it for all of us! He's got crazily scary talent, and this cd is just the beginning!!

Bobby Jakes cuts loose on your candyass!
Coldwater makes me reach for a Les Paul and a 5150 cab one minute, and a flat top steel string acoustic the next. Bobby Jakes' swift handling of his guitar snakes my ears through the swamp, the sky, and the booty! The solo in Captain Crucial is as HOT as it can get! yo?! pick it up!


Interesting improvisations on Balkan tunes
It was a pleasure listening to the CD and figuring out all the different influences.
