Jacob Fischer ... In New York City

release of my second album for Arbors records in the US.

Featuring some of the best musicians from the east coast in a selection of wonderful standards in fresh and inventive arrangements. The classic mellow sound of vibes and guitar spiced up with a bit of Django and some bluesy slide guitar. All on the classical nylon string guitar. Great rhythm section work by Webber and Wilson and Chuck Redd is one swinging vibes player.
Recorded at Avatar studios.

4/5 star review from DIG jazz sweden

"..Jacob Fischers ”In New York City” is a well worked-out and actually also somewhat different album, well worth to discover and include even in the most selective of record collections. Jacob is without a doubt one of our "great scandinavian jazmusicians"

A collection of both American and Scandinavian Christmas songs in imaginative arrangements. Performed in a lyrical and humorous way that appeals to a wide audience but also music on a very high level performed by some of Denmarks top jazz musicians..

Jacob Fischer trio with Francesco Calí :


..Jazz with a
mediterranean flavour

Fischer at his most Djangoesque - Sicilian Accordionist Francesco Calì adds a charming mediterranean flavour to the music which covers Jacob Fischer originals with gypsy as well as brazilian inspirations , some wonderful Nina Rota scores from Fellinis movies and some well chosen standards.

"..Without a doubt album of the year for me, and a masterpiece that goes directly to the heart !"

5/5***** Lasse Seger Orkester Journalen Sweden

".. Sure, there are traces of Django in Fischer's rapid acoustic runs and glissandi. But above all it's the sound of Fischer. His imaginative, harmonically and melodically sophisticated playing is his own, as is his outstanding chordal work.."
