    Absolute Magic! Josh's arrangement and orchestration of a wind quintet that I had requested was sublime , simply beautiful. I can't say enough about his outstanding skills as both a composer and musician. In addition, Josh made the process very easy and proved to be a true creative partner from the beginning of our correspondence to the final delivery of the tracks.

    Working with Josh was a great experieince-- he is very good at his instruments and really connected with the song. The recordings had dynamics and flow that meshed well with the style of the song and the sound quality is stellar.

    He is highly recommended if you need any wind instrument.

    Wow, can't believe how quickly and how professionally they knocked out my order. He is a true artist, and created an entire lead solo for my song as well as rhythm guitar. Transformed my song and I've already placed 2 more orders. They are THAT good. Thank you!

    I have to say that it's fantastic speed of order execution! Yesterday night I sent the project files and went sleep. When I woke up, as usually I went to brush my teeth and took with me for some reason my mobile. So when I turned my mobile on, I received a letter from Jacob that the order was executed and waiting for an acceptance. I received the high quality guitar's tracks. Jacob is very talented, but I want to say that a brilliant musician, subtly feeling music!

  42. Review By: MusicElectro32 May 10, 2017

  44. Review By: Andrewsw Apr 28, 2017

    Josh was extremely easy going and professional to work with. He wasn't satisfied with the end product until I was and this made the process super easy. Not to mention that the product delivered was excellently played and well recoded, Josh even went the extra mile with giving me extra takes as options for my project, highly recommended!

  45. Review By: DylannnTheDude Apr 25, 2017

    Jakob was an absolute pleasure to work with. He listened to what I was looking to accomplish, provided very valuable input when prompted, and went above and beyond.

    Working with JJMusic/Jakob was a fantastic experience. I came to him with only a main theme for a piece of music, along with some context and the mental image I had for the piece, and he ran with it from there. He worked very quickly and was extremely attentive to our communications, and the final music track is wonderful.
