    The fourteen tracks on Desert Sounds showcase the symphonic and classically trained background of Acosta’s talents as a graduate from the Fred Fox School of Music at the University of Arizona. The woven melodies of trumpets, violins, and Jacob’s vocals and whistling are married to a wide variety of percussion, from a standard drum set to worldly musical instruments like the guiro, cabasa, various shells, and surdo drum. As a multi-instrumentalist Jacob performed and recorded on piano, timpani, voice, guitar, keyboards, bass, auxiliary percussion, and additionally arranged and composed all fourteen original songs for this record. Other featured instrumentalists on this album include the incredible sounds of Courtney Pinski and Dale Clark on violins, Jason Allen on bass, Mike Ankomeus on flute and trumpet, Adam Guenthner and Jeanne Mayer on trumpets, and Andre Gressieux on percussion.

    The lyrical interplay, arrangements, and literary storytelling is reminiscent of 60’s and 70’s groups like The Moody Blues and America. The album starts with a prelude of animal sounds from the Southwest in a dawn to night-time sequence, and ends with an instrumental finale featuring all the musical motifs from the songs on the record. This labor-of-love anthology was tracked in Tucson at local and home studios, was mixed by Bob Hoag at Flying Blanket Studios, and mastered by Jason Livermore. Desert Sounds is a cinematic ode to the Southwest desert with a collection of musical stories that pay tribute to Arizona and the greater Sonoran region.

lyrics

I think it's time for me to go
Feel like this bar's become Old Monkeyshine, and karaoke
Hey man I should probably take it slow

Hey Sara can I get me one more "you look nice" before I hit the road

Don't you worry about me
Not much longer will I be before I'm in your arms
Hey now darling you're so sweet, like mimosa's from P & P
I can't wait to get home
We can still kiss the night away, like two new lovers down at Che's
Matching mojitos celebrate, while local chatter dissipates
Just one more glass of water I'll see you soon, but now
It's time for me to go

Barrio blonde at ten 'o' clock
But it's been awhile since 47 Scott
Don't think I'm trying to be aloof
How much stronger is the proof I need to make you understand

The Shelter that I need's with you
The one across our street's not too bad too
Really love you a-chelada, do you like michelada too
I think we make a perfect brew, yeah

I'm just watching Mikey blow on the horn over here honey
I'll be home right after this I promise
Can someone please get me a glass of water, thank you

Don't you worry about me
Not much longer will I be before I'm in your arms
Hey now darling you're so sweet, like mimosa's from P & P
I can't wait to get home
We can still kiss the night away, like two new lovers down at Che's
Matching mojitos celebrate, while local chatter dissipates
Just one more glass of water I'll see you soon, but now
It's time for me to go
Don't you worry now my darling I am coming, cause it's time for me to go

Well, maybe just one more
