Jacob Allen Deaton Jacob Allen Deaton

When Atlanta jazz guitarist Jacob Deaton plays, his guitar is transformed into a mode of transportation, chartered by improvisation, he takes listeners on a musical journey through jazz and blues canons, piercing melodies and modern conceptualization.

Jacob’s music could be described as traditional swing mixed with modern harmonic concepts but this would only scratch the surface. From the first note, the music that Jacob creates has always had a strong melodic root that is adventurous as well as engaging to the listener’s ears. Constantly searching for a new idea with every chorus that passes by, he reaches within for visual references from the past to serve as a catalyst for artistic exploration.

Recent performance credits include a featured performance at the 2010 Atlanta Jazz Festival and his latest record entitled “Tribulation” is set to release in late Summer of 2011.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
