Strings Magazine hails multi-style cellist and composer Jacob Szekely as "one of the leaders in the creative string community." With his Indie chamber jazz trio, Los Angeles-based Szekely creates a unique musical tapestry that incorporates the richness of jazz improvisation, the structure of classical music, and the edginess of rock into its own alchemy that expands the sonic culture of the cello. Grammy winner cellist Eugene Friesen declared that Szekely's music is "the first time a cellist has made the case as a leader in modern jazz!"

Szekely's compositions and arrangements effortlessly blend influences from Jazz, Classical, and Rock with Middle Eastern, Klezmer, and R&B. In 2014, the trio released their debut EP, which was hailed by critics from The Strad, Strings Magazine, International Musician, Berkleyside, LA Weekly, as well as artists from Yo-Yo Ma to Rush Bassist Geddy Lee, and declared a "quantum leap forward" in pushing the boundaries of the cello. The trio's 2015 debut album made several year-end top ten lists and debut album of the year nods from JazzEd, International Review of Music, and others.
