Jacob Wise Trio @ KUT 6/7/11
Everybody knows Austin is a guitar town. Most think of blues guitar like Stevie Ray or straight ahead rock riffs a la Alejandro Escovedo. If you just left it there you might miss out on one of Austin’s greatest new guitarists. Jacob Wise grew up in Austin as the city was defining itself as a music mecca and absorbed the music that surrounded him. After graduating from UT Jacob took his love for music to the Jazz program at University of North Texas in Denton. While earning his masters degree Jacob became a music teacher himself piloting the Super 400 guitar ensemble and teaching private lessons. Wise plays a variety of styles but feels at home playing his traditional jazz arrangements in some of Austin’s more intimate clubs. Jacob Wise brings his Gibson 335 to KUT’s Studio 1a Tuesday June 7th. You can also catch him at The Swan Dive Tuesday night at 10:30. Listen to Jacob Wise in Studio 1a HERE!!!
