Enjoy Yourself (It’s later than you think)” is the first single announcing Meschiya Lake’s upcoming album “Looking the World Over” (Release 06.05.2022 via Sungroove Records & Syncopation Society). Ms. Lake is coming out of the pandemic with a sunny song and presents a new facet of her repertoire. The upbeat Rocksteady-inspired tune features a marvellous constellation of musicians based in Berlin and hold strong promises for the album! The whole thing was in the works already in 2019 well before the catastrophic collapse of live music, the Black Lives Matter movement and the current war in Ukraine. Lots have since changed… Yet this song holds a peculiar significance and resonates with our times, perhaps even more so than as initially intended.

We have the great pleasure and privilege of making available to you a vast collection of transcriptions by world-renowned traditional jazz specialist, Dr. Claus Jacobi.

Nearly 700 titles from the early days of jazz will be available and they will present all kinds of instrumentations ranging from 3 front-liners to big-band arrangements. This work of a lifetime covers almost all the titles that make up the richness of this extensive repertoire.

We will regularly add new music to the page and for now, you can find transcriptions for about 30 songs from the Original Dixieland Jazz Band, the King Oliver Creole Jazz Band, and the New Orleans Rhythm Kings.
