I’m looking forward to releasing our second record, “The Tale of the Twelve-Foot Man” on Creative Nation Music this June! Featuring Jerry Sabatini – trumpet, Eric Hofbauer – guitar, and Tony Leva – bass. It’s been about two and a half years since the release of our first album, “Diagrams”, and we’re excited to share this new music with you all.
“The music of the Dylan Jack Quartet is sufficiently robust and malleable that a change of instrumentation doesn’t alter the group’s core identity — in fact, it reveals new facets. Jack released Diagrams, the quartet’s debut, in 2017, with Todd Brunel on clarinet, bass clarinet and soprano saxophone. On The Tale of the Twelve-Foot Man, the group returns with trumpeter Jerry Sabatini instead as the featured horn. Guitarist Eric Hofbauer and bassist Anthony Leva remain on board, joining the drummer-composer-leader in a set that is once again bristling with rhythmic intelligence and rich in dynamic contrast and ebb and flow.” – David Adler
