Who is Jacey Falk?

Who is Jacey Falk? A Jazz, Blues and Pop singer? Comedian? Producer? All of these things and more create the portrait that is Jacey Falk. Falk has always had an affinity for making things alright. Blessed as a phenomenal tenor whose voice slices through the wind like an eagle’s wing, Jacey sets the record straight. He makes it alright. He reminds you through his music and humor that life is more than wonderful–it’s beautiful and worth living.

Born in Savannah, GA, Falk began performing at the tender, young age of four. While attending high school he began to learn how to sing Jazz and Blues under the guidance of his band director, Sgt. Stanley Anderson. After graduating from Savannah State University he moved to New York to make it to the “big time.” Falk found himself working as a booking agent for Jazz One Productions by day and singing in little clubs by night. After six months he left Jazz One productions and opened his own agency, M.F. Productions.

With the birth of M.F. Productions, Jacey Falk became the youngest agent/producer in the history of jazz. He worked with legends such as: Lionel Hampton, Jack McDuff, Donald Harrison, Harry “Sweets” Edison, Red holloway, Linda Hopkins, Greg Osby, Cyrus Chesnut, Odetta, Nicholas Payton, Javon Jackson, Curtis Fuller, Diane Schuur, Kevin Montgomery and Benny Golson; and yet these are only a handful of the artists the company has represented and worked with.

By December 2000 he felt the time had come for a change; Falk had become a voiceless singer until Jazz legend, Abbey Lincoln encouraged him to return to the stage. She and his physician financed a demo record that allowed him to obtain a record deal with Q&W Records. In 2003 Jacey Falk’s debut record, From A Place Within, was released featuring a duet “I’ve Been There” (which received critical acclaim and much air play) between him and his godmother, R&B legend, Ruth Brown (for whom this would be her last recording). Little did he know the ride through the music industry would not end there.

Over the years he has become a producer whose talents have been in high demand. He produced four of Curtis Fuller’s most successful records to date. This Is Curtis Fuller (Progressive), Up Jumped Spring (Delmark), Keep it Simple (High Note), and The Story of Cathy & Me (Challenge) which featured popular songs such as “I asked & She said Yes” and “Life Was Good, What Went Wrong?”

Falk has also had over fifteen Jazz, Latin and Blues productions. The Legends of The Bandstand, The United Trombon Summit, The United Alto Summit, Al Grey & the Bone Crushers, The Curtis Fuller Super Band, Benny Golson & Curtis Fuller: Together Again, The Keepers of The Beat, and M.F. Production’s Celebration of Lionel Hampton are just a few of his many creations.

Jacey Falk’s innovative ear, enthusiasm for his craft and heavily rooted background in the arts will exude through its’ golden essence as his voice and lyrics spirit you away down a river through emotion and time. To hear his unhinged soul in his voice is to experience the rustic, sage barkeep that slides you that late night drink that let’s you know everything will be alright.
