Event Details

Jacob Lauxman-guitar, Chris Peña-piano, Eric Rasmussen-alto saxophone, Jerome Salazar-bass, Jesse-Lee Yarbrough-drums

Jacob Lauxman picked up the guitar at the end of middle school, initially only playing rock. After being introduced by a friend to jazz, he joined the Arizona Jazz Academy (now Tucson Jazz Institute) and Catalina Foothills High School’s jazz programs during his sophomore year of high school. in 2006, Jacob was able to travel with the AJA’s “Ellington band” to Europe where he performed at Montreux Jazz and Jazz a Vienne Festivals. At the end of his senior year in high school, Jacob was awarded a full ride scholarship through Sedona Jazz on the Rocks to attend Berklee College of Music’s summer Five Week Program. He then studied and graduated from Arizona State University under the direction of Michael Kocour as a jazz guitar performance major.

Since graduating ASU Jacob continues to perform; also teaching guitar and jazz both privately, in schools, and in various rock and roll full-band workshops around the valley as well as group masterclasses with his graduated jazz peers of ASU at local high schools’ jazz programs.

In this performance at The Nash, Jacob will play the music of Kurt Rosenwinkel, one of the most emotive interpreters of standards repertoire, but also one of his generation’s most prolific composers. The National Endowment for the Arts Composer’s Award winner asserts that it is his writing which helped develop what has now become a singular voice in modern jazz.
