The Jake Victor 5tet is an international, Downbeat-Award-Winning contemporary jazz group, formed in Amsterdam in the Fall of 2017 with members from Estonia, Spain, Belgium, Chicago and New York. They released their debut album "Twisted Heads", written, learned, and recorded in the span of two months, to critical acclaim: two selections from the album, "Salem" and "Call to Prayer", won the group Downbeat Magazine's prestigious award "Best Undergraduate Small Jazz Group" in Downbeat's 41st annual Student Music Awards. Their influences range far and wide, from Bach to Ambrose Akinmusire, and from The Bad Plus to Steve Reich. Called "musical magic" (Lawrence University Blogs), "remarkable" (Post-Crescent), and with a leader who is "absolutely dedicated" (Downbeat Magazine), this young group is beginning to make waves on the international jazz scene.
The Eric Wurzelbacher Quartet is a high energy instrumental group that harnesses the power of rock and the free spirit of jazz.
