The pair generate that special excitement that we come to expect from seasoned veterans. Then you realize that as young as they are Jacobs and Coll are experienced. Expect to love this one. You will..”

 

                                         MAKING A SCENE

 

The core of the album is funky harmonica based Blues…A perfect binomial lined up by two blues musicians who know everything there is to know to make a brilliant work, based on the fundamentals of Jacobs’ compositions…”

 

                                           ROOTSTIME.BE

 

“Will Jacobs’ new single, Berlin Bounce, is “a little bit blues, a little bit zydeco and a whole lot of fun. Check it out – we bet you’ll be cutting a rug in no time flat.” Here’s hoping the young blues guitarist in Germany-by-way-of-Chicago earns an LA Music Critic Awards nomination this year!”

 

                                          LA MUSIC CRITIC

 

“Take a Chicago-born Blues Man and transplant them to Germany, things can get crazy in an exciting sort-of-way.  Will Jacobs is that excitement, and plays like a Blues Man possessed.  His mastery of the guitar leaves one in complete admiration of his dedication to the Blues/Rock craft.”

                                           BLUES BYTES

 

“These gentleman can bring it live. All and all a tasty little collection of catchy blues nuggets and certainly a worthy addition to your collection of blues staples.”

 

                                 THE REAL MUSIC OBSERVER

“You can tell immediately that Jacobs has paid his dues with blood, sweat and tears. His soul shines through on every number he performs. His vocals are as riveting as his guitar work. Both vocals and guitar come together, with the backing of his amazing rhythm section, to grab your attention. Suddenly the hairs on the back of your neck are standing up and your arms are riddled with those goosebumps, that cool nights, sittin’ on the porch tend to bring on. Yes Will Jacobs is that sort of artist. He just plays at a level of wonderful emotion and skill.”

 

                                   BLUES HIGHWAY US 61

 

“The languid pumping “Stranded” is raw, cracking Chicago blues in the best Elmore James tradition. The relaxed, funky “Hey Baby” hangs a soulful Robert Cray/Joe Louis Walker sound with excellent pumping and screaming harmonica work. ….”One Too Many Times” is a fierce, angular blues song with a soulful, corrosive sound, augmented by Will Jacobs’ screaming guitar and Marcos Coll’s harmonica work.”

Takin’ Our Time is the result of the tuneful team-up of guitarist Will Jacobs and harpist Marcos Coll. The nine-track album opens on “It Ain’t Safe,” upbeat, slightly funky, and soulful, yet doesn’t stray too far from the blues. “Hey Baby” is rooted in 1960s Chicago blues. It features a two-step bounce that no doubt makes it a great dance track for blues fans. “Blues Cazorla Boogie” is an instrumental that reveals what the guys can do when they collaborate on a composition. It grabs the attention and holds it, too. The album is a fine example of the different cultures being able to connect and unite in an international effort through the universal language of music, spoken in the dialect of the blues. So check out Will Jacobs and Marcos Coll’s Takin’ Our Time because “It Ain’t Safe” to miss it.”

 

                                     HEAVY JOURNALISTS

 

The album starts off with a sweet guitar intro on It Ain’t Safe, followed by well-toned vocals and Marcos Coll’s harp. It’s obvious within a few notes that somebody on this record is a ringer. Will Jacobs, the person singing and playing guitar, has been dipped in the river of the blues. He has been anointed by the blues gods that went before him to make the sweetest sounds imaginable. There is an honesty in Will Jacobs’ approach that tells he is the genuine article, no matter where he lives. Takin’ Our Time is worth the wait. It’s worth the search if you like that delicious Chicago sound.”
