'Play Song' hits the TOP 30 list on JAZZWEEK CHART NATIONWIDE MUSICAL HIGHLIGHT OF 2011 Veteran jazz trumpeter Dan Jacobs brings forth one of the most unexpected musical highlight of 2011 with the release of Play Song-a superior recording in every respect! 'Play Song' captures a COMMAND PERFORMANCE from trumpeter Dan Jacobs and his able crew producing a very accessible and engaging musical statement that jazz audiences everywhere can appreciate, well done! - Edward Blanco, ejazznews.com GREAT SENSE OF MELODY A jazz solo is nothing more or less than a search for an alternative melody line. In order to be great at it one must have a great sense of melody. Clifford Brown had that and Dan Jacobs has it in spades!. - Buck Vandermeer, freelance reviewer DEFINITELY A CD WORTH HAVING! This is Dan's 3rd album and it's getting good airplay climbing the charts on JazzWeek and getting some awesome reviews. It's on the move up, and deservedly so! Dans' sound on both tpt..and flug. Is truly something beautiful to hear, and his tasteful, lyrical playing on both Ballads and Swingers is well worth a listen. - Jim the trumpetmaster.com OUTSTANDING ALBUM The seemingly effortless phrasing, consistently open and relaxed tone in all ranges - a tone that is masterfully shaped to match the mood, and the constant wealth of ideas makes this a goldmine to emulate for any jazz player. Dan Jacobs Quartet - Play Song. Brilliant! Just like Dan. - Geoff Winstead CD man! I love the track layout - great flow to the CD. I love your lyricism and every solo has a point and tells a story. No wasted notes! You use the upper register at the perfect time to create interest in your solos. Great job! --Matt Taton, Mt Pleasant H.S. Jazz Band Director Dan is simply one of the GREAT NEW OFFERINGS to the jazz world. - George W. Carroll, EJAZZNEWS.com.
