Jazz Guitarist Jack Grassel Puts 100% Of His Soul Into Music


A new album from Jack Grassel is a pretty common occurrence.  The latest one is his 20th.  But what makes the new one, titled 2015 Jack, different is that he plays and sings every note you hear on the album.

"I'm no great big star, so I have no record company telling me what to record. I can play exactly what I want to play so one hundred percent of my soul is in all this music," Grassel says.

The Milwaukee jazz guitarist along with his wife and musical partner, singer Jill Jensen, stopped by the Lake Effect studio to share the story of the album:
