14th April 2013 Hello all, we have an upcoming performance Jacob TV's 'Heartbreakers' for Saxophone Quartet and film at next months Kaleidoscope Concert in the Odessa Club on 1st May.

Jacob TV's music is primarily concerned with popular media and this work is based on excerpts from American talk shows; 'The piece demands such a variety of emotional response – you feel pity, amusement, hatred, sadness, hope, astonishment, embarrassment, depression, loneliness, delight, surprise… it really massages your heart and lungs! In this respect Heartbreakers is a very apt title because it really does affect your rhythmic system'.
