Read "Jakob Baekgaard's Best of 2015" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

These ten albums are just a few of the many great releases of 2015. Music was and still is a light in a world filled with problems and fear. When it is best, it encourages openness and contemplation and brings us closer together as humans.

Jakob Bro/Thomas Knak: Bro/Knak

Read "Bro/Knak" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Jakob Bro è un chitarrista danese dalle frequentazioni eccellenti, vedi Bill Frisell e Lee Konitz nello splendido Time, e ancora Frisell, Kenny Wheeler e Paul Bley in questa ultima doppia fatica.

The transition from promising talent to well-established artist isn't always easy and some musicians seem doomed to be placed in the eternal category of “interesting new voice."
