Bio: Jakob Durst is an exciting and engaging young musician on the Ontario jazz scene. A Guelph native, Jakob currently attends Centennial CVI, where he participates in a diverse range of ensembles and extracurriculars. In addition to leading his own bands, Jakob has also had the pleasure of playing with various ensembles such as the Hamilton All-Star Jazz Band, KW Big Band Theory, and the Guelph Youth Jazz Ensemble, with whom he was awarded a gold standard and an invitation to Musicfest Nationals at the Humber Next Gen Jazz Festival. Furthermore, Jakob was also selected for the NYU Jazz Improv and Composition Workshop in New York City this past year, an opportunity which allowed him to meet luminaries like John Scofield, Chris Potter, Lenny White, and Dave Liebman. In addition to saxophone, Jakob also plays flute, clarinet, and piano, and has had the opportunity to study with greats such as Kelly Jefferson, Dave Pietro, Mike Murley, Billy Drewes, and Brent Rowan. Jakob is extremely excited to be returning to Manhattans, and looks forward to a great night of music!
