Cited by All About Jazz as a bassist with “all the groovy elasticity necessary to encompass the melodic complexity of compositions,” Isaac Jaffe is a strong voice in a new generation of musicians.
Isaac has recorded and performed with many musicians in New York City’s diverse jazz scene including Robert Dick and Mara Rosenbloom, while continuing to collaborate with contemporaries in the burgeoning Brooklyn rock scene.
In the spring of 2009 Isaac recorded and self released his first CD Of Pandas and People, introducing his unique voice as a composer and nimble work on the upright bass. Isaac’s follow up, Telenovela Vol. 1 continues to break new ground in the development of his energetic and melodic instrumental music and has been celebrated by Bird is the Worm for Isaac’s “strong voice on bass” on this “easy to like” album. Isaac has also written for film and television in diverse settings including work scoring the Martin Sheen narrated documentary Return to El Salvador and creating music used for NBC’s late night sports programming.
