Review of "in NYC" by Pat Goodhope

"..Every single standard on this album is played with a refreshing wonder.
Let’s be honest with ourselves, too often new jazz albums fall short in firing our jaded interests.
It is very tough for a jazz musician today to find originality as he or she is up against EVERYTHING that has gone on before them. An unforgiving task to be sure.
Jacob Fischer has found the way to spur my interest as this album grows and grows with each successive listen. No Django clone in any way shape or form. This gentleman is on his way with this Arbors Jazz album number two. Don’t miss it and here’s to many more! .."

4/5 star review of "in NYC" 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"

"..Jacob Fischers ”In New York City” är ett väl genomarbetat och faktiskt också lite annorlunda album, väl värt att ta del av och att införliva även i den kräsnaste skivsamling. Jacob är tveklöst en av våra ”stora” skandinaviska jazzmusikanter.."

July 20 2015
Just back from Edinburgh Jazzfestival, had the great joy to do some gigs with the greats Warren Vache and Scott Hamilton.
Read a five star review Scotlandherald or at Alison Kerr's blog.
"...Danish guitarist Jacob Fischer – a dazzlingly attentive, responsive and inventive player who masterfully wove Vache’s melodic lines into his accompaniment or embroidered around them..."
We also did a concert led by the great Scottish pianist Brian Kellock.

Jacob Fischer ... In New York City

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

X-mas anmeldelser:
Berlingske ***** 5/6

(...) Så er der langt mere stil og konsekvens i udgivelsen fra guitaristen Jacob Fischer. Her er nuancer og raffinement i såvel arrangementer som fortolkning. De muntre numre bliver skælmske, ligesom musikken generelt swinger med en lystighed, som harmonerer fint med den klassiske opfattelse af begrebet jul.
Generelt lykkes det at fastholde en anslået stemning, og Jacob Fischer, som har valgt at fravælge salmer, spiller bare elegant, smidigt og aldeles overrumplende. Han bliver liftligt ledsaget af bassisten Anders Christensen og af trommeslageren Janus Templeton, der i et par sambanumre overlader stikkerne til brasilianeren Rafael Barata. Og så er det ikke mindst fascinerende at opleve altsaxofonisten Christina von Bülow, der spiller så begavet, så personligt og så medrivende, at højtid og tidløshed bare går op i en højere enhed.

**** 4 / 5 stars review  dig jazz sweden
(...) Måste man beskriva hennes sätt att uttrycka sig på kan man kanske påstå att hon låter som en kombination av Paul Desmond och Stan Getz med ett rejält stänk Lars Gullin. Men framför allt låter hon som Christina von Bülow. Hennes samspel med Jacob Fischer, som uppenbarligen inte kan spela en enda ton utan att det svänger, är i det närmaste telepatiskt.(...)

US review from midwestrecord
JACOB FISCHER/Guitarist: ".. An
aficionado of Django, Fischer has the master's strum right down to
the last fingernail swipe. Choosing songs from the era, even when
sneaking in a co-write with co-hort Bucky Pizzarelli, everyone here
is having a great time leaving their fingerprints on these classics
passionately played in the classic style. Played with more gusto than
an homage or a tribute, this is one of those from the heart
recordings where the stars have aligned properly over it and are
shining brightly in approval. A great find for any classic jazzbo ears."

NY CD Jacob Fischer trio + Francesco Calí : "Django" 
Så er vi endelig klar med vores nye CD, som mange har spurgt forventningsfuldt til ved koncerter de senere år, hvor vi har spillet os ind på materialet, som primært er nyskrevet af Fischer med inspiration fra sigøjner jazz og Brasiliansk musik og dertil nogle velvalgte kendte ørehængere.
