The young musician has been gaining international attention in the past few year while touring as part of the world renowned Joey Defrancesco Trio.  He also has received critical acclaim with his latest international release "Movin' and Groovin'"  (Alma/Universal) featuring Joey Defrancesco and Byron Landham.  Jake is featured in the new Joey Defrancesco CD "Organic Vibes" with George Coleman and Bobby Hutcherson.
