Jacob Armen

Jacob Armen is a true child prodigy drummer. Born in 1982, this drummer was playing like a pro at the ripe old age of 18 months. By the age of 6, he was playing with a full jazz ensemble. He was on tv many times between the ages of 7 and 10 years old, some of these video clips are available online. This prodigy drummer was trained in jazz by his father who would place a radio in his baby crib and he would listen to jazz drummers each day until he was able to play as well. By the age of 7, he was performing with 4 drumsticks, a double bass pedal, and full kit. Some of the most renowned musical product lines sponsor Mr. Armen and his art. Jacob Armen released his first solo album on NPG Records after being signed to a contract with Prince. Jacob's second album “Breakthrough” was released on his personal label, JAAB Records. For the past 2 years, Jacob has been working on his third album “When Drums Conduct” which will be released this January! It will feature Grammy winners and Latin-Jazz Legend Poncho Sanchez.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
