“Stoltzman and the ensemble make exquisite music that goes beyond borders and defies categories.”

Chicago Jazz Magazine on TAPEREBÁ

“THE MASK IN THE MIRROR balances man against woman, jazz against classical composition, and society against self in a rise of tension that resolves only with end of their relationship.”


“A blend of traditional harmony within a modernist style.”

Cinemusical on SYMPHONY NO. 3

“Jacob consistently demonstrates an exceptional capacity for translating inner states into musical form, with all the range that that implies.”

Exystence on DREAMERS

“Arcadian Winds deliver top notch performances here, with plenty of precise power and deft fluidity to tell these stories with the utmost grace.”

Take Effect on WINDSWEPT

“Each instrument, including the voice on several tracks, is realistically captured in a warm, lightly resonant environment.”

Classical Candor on TANGOS…& SOMETHING MORE

“THEN ELEPHANT SPEAKS shows us a glimpse of his vision and interesting interpretations of [Whitley’s] work, resulting in a compelling, unique listen of much grace.”


“A most impressive and very accessible recording, brimming with ideas executed with sophisticated precision.”
