Jake Victor 5tet
August 24 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
The Jake Victor 5tet is an international, Downbeat-Award-Winning modern jazz group, formed by Jake Victor in Amsterdam in the Fall of 2017. The group consists of 5 dynamic members from Estonia, Spain, Belgium, Chicago and New York, who each bring their own distinct character to Victor’s compositions. 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”, were selected to win the group Downbeat Magazine’s prestigious award “Best Undergraduate Small Jazz Group” in their 41stStudent Music Awards. Their influences range far and wide, from Bach to Ambrose Akinmusire, and from The Bad Plus to Steve Reich. Called “musical magic” (blogs.lawrence.edu), “remarkable” (Appleton Post-Crescent), and with a leader who is “absolutely dedicated” (Downbeat Magazine), this young group is starting to make some major waves on the international jazz scene.
