Josean Jacobo Josean Jacobo

Josean Jacobo is one of the most important jazz musicians in the Dominican Republic. Pianist, composer and arranger. Jacobo possesses a unique style, and supported by his group, Josean Jacobo & Tumbao, his vibrant compositions provide audiences with original and innovative waves of music adorned with explosive colors.

Josean Jacobo & Tumbao perform primarily original compositions identified as Latin Jazz Nouveau. In his debut album “Setting Things in Order”, the group blends Latin and Afro-Dominican Fusions (rhythms such as Merengue, Pambiche, Palos, Gaga, Sarandunga, Machacó), with other sounds within the jazz avant- garde. The album is on iTunes, and it pretends to get the attention of jazz journalists, jazz festivals, booking agents, and publicists.

”The samples of Setting Things in Order contain great distinctive compositions and playing; I really appreciate the various techniques explored with the ensemble and on the piano. In “Setting Things in Order,” I really enjoyed the playing; outstanding 6/8 feel, very nice phrasing of the melody and chordal figures, interesting ensemble interaction, great piano sound, very nice solo and the music is very enjoyable and imaginative” Jeff Williams - Kari-On Productions LLC.
