Jakob Baekgaard’s Best Releases of 2013

Read "Jakob Baekgaard’s Best Releases of 2013" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

So much good music and so much to choose from. Every day provides the opportunity to hear something new or rediscover the magic in old tunes. The records on this list don't have much in common, except they all sound completely fresh and open and have their own take on what it means to create jazz ...

The Dude Abides

Read "The Dude Abides" reviewed by Mark Corroto

To paraphrase Jeffrey Lebowski, aka The Dude (or El Dudarino, if you are not into the brevity thing), “I've had a rough night, and I hate the fucking Grateful Dead, man." Actually, The Dude said the “Eagles" (and I guess I'm obliged to agree with him), but for me the Dead seem to always get under ...

August Rosenbaum Trio: Live LP

Read "Live LP" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The jazz piano trio survives. With all the changes in music, the birth of sampling, the death of the record store, and the fracturing of jazz genres, the piano trio continues to adapt and transmogrify, making it an evolutionary legacy.

Sometimes, an evolutionary variation displays traits of both the new era and its primordial ancestors. ...

Read "Jakob Baekgaard's Best Danish Releases of 2010" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

The Danish jazz scene has evolved tremendously during recent years. The recurring Copenhagen Jazz Festival is a testament to the strength of the Danish jazz scene and its ability to soak up influences from outside.

Copenhagen Jazz Festival
Various Venues
Copenhagen, Denmark

With the current crisis of the major record labels and the folding of venues all over the world, it could be argued that jazz, as an art form, has entered the age of survival where it is simply a basic matter of keeping ...

Girls in Airports: Girls in Airports

Read "Girls in Airports" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

The influence of world music has been somewhat rare in Danish jazz, with the notable exception of Pierre Dørge's New Jungle Orchestra, which for several years has incorporated Asian music and African folklore into their particular bouncing brand of avant-garde wilderness. The arrival of Girls in Airports signals an altogether different approach to merging different sounds ...

August Rosenbaum: Beholder

Read "Beholder" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Considering the maturity and sophistication Beholder displays, it might be astonishing to learn that its composer/pianist, August Rosenbaum, is just 22. But, there it is. This youthful Danish jazzman recorded this Brooklyn session with countryman Jakob Bro (guitar) and Americans Dan Weiss (drums) and Thomas Morgan (bass).

What disturbs the norm here is the ...
