JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2014 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Jacob Young's "Forever Young"  at Rochester International Jazz Festival

Forever Young is a five piece, piano, sax, bass, drums and led by the guitarist, Jacob Young. They played it relaxed and lush and opened with their namesake tune. It had all the earmarks of the ECM label. No rough edges, no angularity, understated rhythm, everything in check and near perfectly executed but less austere than the signature European sound. It worked especially well in the Lutheran Church.
