DAN the MAN

Dan Jacobs the great Trumpet player is here in full colors, with all the intensity of his playing.

His name is included on the list of "AMERICAN JAZZ TRUMPETERS," and he has toured extensively in Asia, Mexico, Canada, Europe and the United States, performing on the world stage with big bands, jazz combos and public touring acts since 1966. The list of performers he has played with is to long to include but here's a few does Woody Herman , Bob James, Linda Rondstadt , Wayne Newton, Frank Sinatra Jr., Mel Torme' sound familiar to you? I am honored to have painted this great Trumpet player and also to be his friend.
He said , "I believe that artists are arguably the most valuable people on this earth. For they seek to inject the culture with all the art, beauty , aesthetics you find on this planet. Without the working artist , the world would not be as livable , and I am proud to be counted as one of them." ( quote) www.danjacobsmusic.com
