Greetings!

My name is Stephen J. Jacobs,

Chui Records and Production Company

ABOUT STEVE'S MUSIC

Welcome to my Music section. This where you can learn more about CHUI Records and CHUI Productions. I started working professionally as an instrumental musician in 1973 and joined the Professional Musicians Union, Local 47 of the AFM (American Federation of Musicians) in 1974.

Music is an incredible adventure in itself.

I spent many years as a Jazz Drummer and Percussionist with occasional forays into Piano/Keyboards.

My first Solo Album, "THIS WORLD" Is a Multi-Award winning combination of Jazz based music with unique spoken word narratives that apply Environmental wisdom to many of Humanities social and Institutional problems. I was fortunate to find a brilliant young Painter named Prentiss (Beau) Greene III, to create the beautiful Album Cover I hired him for.

I also am available for Public Speaking engagements. The photo on the bottom was of me as MC and Narrator for the USPS official unveiling and First Day Issue of the Henry Mancini Stamp

BAYLOR-JACOBS PUBLISHERS

Baylor-Jacobs Publishers is an ASCAP publishing company started by my late father Morton (Morty) Philip Jacobs and Laker's All Star Basketball Great Elgin Baylor, who was recently put in the Basketball Hall of Fame.  As I am Dad's ASCAP Successor Writer, I am very happy that Elgin has continued the relationship with me. 

My compositions, especially the instrumentals, included in the "THIS WORLD" Album/CD are now available for select clients.  Mechanical Licenses, Synchronizations and other publishing criteria can be issued to Individuals, companies and organizations interested in my music, for your own Motion Picture, Television, Stage, and Documentary, Commercial and Website creations and endeavors.  

ASCAP and TuneCore Music Publishing Administration and the TuneCore Songwriter Service are the Authorized publishing administrators for Baylor-Jacobs Publishers.  For Music Supervisors and other parties interested in my music for your projects, please contact TuneCore by email: licensing@tunecore.com

Besides being a brilliantly creative Pianist and Accompanist, my father, Morton (Morty) Philip Jacobs composed some extraordinary music.  I am now re-cataloging his compositions and arrangements for Baylor-Jacobs Publishers and will be able to provide Dad's music as well, at a later date.

Thank you for your interest.
