Accompanied by Tom Gallaher on piano, Jade Zabric on guitar. Daniel Jamieson on sax and flute and Nezih Antakli on percussion, the acoustic set affirms Jacob’s god-given talent as a vocalist, sans the appreciable abundance of pop, R&B and dance production that pervades the recorded version of “Extraordinary Woman,” which music journalist Chuck Taylor deemed “a joyous pageant of sing-along anthems, offering musical mastery akin to the 100-watt persona of Jennifer Hudson, and the vocal chops of Alicia Keys.”
The acoustic set will include her single “Run,” the album title “Extraordinary Woman,” the ballads
“Too Many Reasons” and “Falling” as well as album cuts “Lost and Found,” “Kryptonite” and “Look What You’ve Done” with their newly acoustic arrangements. Jacob will also sing Chaka Khan‘s 1984hit “Through The Fire” and “I Can Only Be Me” written by Steve Wonder and recorded by Eva Cassidy.
The event will take place at Hourglass Tavern in midtown Manhattan (373 W 46th floor 2 New York, NY 10036 – (212) 265-2060) on Sunday, September 15 at 8:00pm.
