Review: Inspired by places, events, moods and ideas in the Bay Area, local trumpeter Jekabson performs nine original compositions that he wrote for his seventh album & were recorded all in one day with his versatile sextet. He’s built a welcoming sonic laboratory that’s inspired a steady flow of new compositions and arrangements from its creatively roiling ranks.
