The Jacob Varmus Quintet focuses on music that sounds natural without adhering to any theory or dictum--except perhaps Debussy's “pleasure is the law." Varmus the composer favors the tradition of great jazz composers like Wayne Shorter and Thelonious Monk who have a penchant for creating pieces with hummable, memorable melodies and an approach to harmony and texture that imbues the music with striking shades of emotion. Varmus the trumpeter features a round warm tone with an envelope pushing harmonic sense. He's joined with a fantastically empathic band, each with plenty to say in his own right. All the Things We Still Can Be, Varmus' first release as leader, features originals that prod each player into new dimensions of thoughtful, soulful invention.

Join Varmus and his group of Jacob Varmus (trumpet, cornet), Daisuke Abe (guitar), Gil Smuskowitz (bass), Brian Woodruff (drums)--but do not come expecting the ordinary.
