My Name Is Jake
Constantly singing as a child, Jake's Mom featured him in the mandatory family holiday pageants. Jake picked up the trumpet at age 11, leading to fanatical study of trumpet and jazz. Accomplishments include a national Downbeat Award for best vocal jazz quartet at age 17, performances for numerous fortune 500 companies as both leader and sideman, and a Masters Degree in trumpet performance. 'My Name Is Jake' features some of Seattle's best session players backing up Jake for a fresh take on some great danceable standards and is a partial tribute to heros Frank Sinatra and Ray Charles.
