Album Notes
Jacob Sacks - piano & compositions
Andrew Bishop - soprano & tenor saxophones
John Wojciechowski - soprano & alto saxophones

Region is Jacob Sacks' first album. Recorded in 1998, it offers a initial glimpse into ideas that have informed Sacks' music and composing ever since.

Featuring four of the greatest musicians in the world - Bishop, Wojciechowski, Flood, and Weiss - the quintet explores improvising upon simple melodies, complex mixed meter forms, swinging beats, and both tonal and atonal harmonies.

Be on the lookout for a second recording from this quintet, to be released in late 2007/early 2008.

Biography of Jacob Sacks

Jacob Sacks is one of the most creative pianists on the NYC jazz scene today. His strong individual voice has been heard in a variety of settings ranging from the mainstream jazz traditions of the Mingus Big Band and Orchestra to the compositional free jazz style of the Mat Maneri ensemble to the vamp based fusion of Dave Binney's Balance.

Originally from Michigan, Jacob moved to NYC in 1995 to study with Garry Dial at the Manhattan School Of Music. After graduating in 1998, he focused his energies on both performing and teaching music. In the performing arena, Jacob became a member of many different ensembles, recorded several albums, and has toured the United States, Europe, and Canada several times.

Along the way, Jacob has had the honor and privilege to perform with musicians such as Clark Terry, Paul Motian, Joe Maneri, Charles Gayle, Eddie Henderson, Christian McBride, Brian Blade, Tony Malaby, Chris Potter, Mark Turner, Ben Monder, Adam Rogers, Kenny Wollesen, Gene Jackson, and Matt Wilson.

Also after graduating, Jacob decided to devote a good amount of his time to bringing music to students of all ages. While currently teaching 30 or so students in private practice, Jacob has also joined with Bob Bowen, Brian Drye, Mike McGinnis, and Khabu Doug Young to form a partnership, the Creative Music Workshop, a cooperative school based upon helping students of all ages and levels transcend the boundaries of style to find their own voices through the creation of original works, both written and spontaneously conceived, in different sized ensembles.

Jacob currently resides in Brooklyn, where he is working on several recording projects and on a book for beginning pianists.
