The Sentinel

I’ll Never Be the Same is appropriately titled because the thrill, the warmth, the intelligence of the album is truly changing. Brandfield belies his young years by playing timeless classics with an old soul’s ear for reverence and great fun.

Travis Rogers, February 24 2021

“I’ll Never Be the Same is a pleasing elixir on the senses…A sense of love, joy, and tranquility radiates in every track.  Jack Brandfield, while still in his early twenties, has mastered the properties of cool jazz and bebop.  His music shows traits of traditional, modern, and improvised jazz."


Jazz2Love,  Susan Francis, Feb. 25, 2021

“The perfect soundtrack for nighttime escape... The album is so intimate you feel every pluck of the strings and every breath flowing through the sax…”
