Jacob Young

Norwegian guitarist Jacob Young presents the West Coast premiere of his stimulating new project. A native of Lillehammer, Young is an artist whose singular approach has been formed by both his European upbringing and musical education in New York, where he studied with late guitar legend Jim Hall and freelanced with artists including Larry Goldings, Rashied Ali and Marc Copland. Young has become a stalwart figure on the Norwegian jazz scene, recording six albums including his acclaimed ECM releases Evening Falls and Sideways.  Join us for these intimate performances celebrating this project’s debut release.
