Jakob Baekgaard

Jakob is still amazed by the ability of jazz to constantly transform itself as an art form.

About Me

Like countless others, I first fell in love with jazz when a friend introduced me to Miles Davis' Kind of Blue. This album became the start of a journey that took me into the many wonderful corners of the world that is jazz. No matter the genre, be it avant-garde, mainstream or modern, I seek the music that touches the heart and soothes the soul.

I live in the city of Odense, the home of the famous poet and author H.C. Andersen. If you stop by, please visit the Jazzhouse Dexter, one of the truly memorable jazz clubs in Denmark.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
