Fresh off his debut album release, Jacob Taswell is adding his voice to the hazy space where pop and art music meet. Jacob’s recent work has focused on pushing the potential of electronics to alter ideas rooted in jazz piano playing and to realize an authentic, fleshed-out sound. He uses the term frozen jazz to describe his music, connoting a sense of groove informed by jazz, but a fixity due to absence of improvisation. Jacob currently lives in New Haven and enjoys rock climbing in his free time.
