"Jake Rosenkalt sought me out with an open heart, an open mind and a lot of creativity and talent. That’s my favorite type of musician, my favorite type of people. If Jazz could make any difference in this world, it will be people with universal minds. Drummers like Jake." 

-Kenny Werner 

 

 

 

"Jake is one of the most natural musicians I have encountered. He gets the GROOVE in deep somatic and cognitive levels that flow like water...He listens, responds, and finds the Deep Pocket."

-Bob Weiner
