Messenger CD (1990)
All songs written by Jim Jacobsen except "Halflife" (Jacobsen/John Hug).
Jim Jacobsen plays a wide variety of instruments--his debut showcases his ability on clarinet, synthesizer, wind synthesizer, and Chapman Stick. But, the main focus is on his strong compositions and imaginative arrangements. The tone of his clarinet playing is especially warm and appealing. ~ MusD
