Alex Jønsson: Heathland

Read "Heathland" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Danish guitarist/composer Alex Jonsson returns with the same trio heard on Heart Of Gold: Live In Aarhus (Self Produced, 2016), with bassist Jens Mikkel Madsen and drummer Andreas Skamby.

Alex Jønsson

Alex Jønsson is an award-winning Danish guitarist, composer and improviser, based in Copenhagen. He has been greatly recognized for his Nordic and melancholic expression – both as a composer and a soloist - and has toured in most of Europe as well as in India. Most people will know him from orchestras like I Think You’re Awesome, Mirja Klippel and Jakob Sørensen's ’Bagland’. Yet, in recent years, as a composer and a bandleader, Alex Jønsson has raised his profile as one of the most interesting jazz guitarists on the modern scene. Since 2012, he has been nominated for a Danish Music Award Jazz no less than nine times! Jønsson’s fourth album as a leader, ‘Heathland’, was released in February 2020.

Alex Jønsson: Heart Of Gold: Live In Aarhus

Read "Heart Of Gold: Live In Aarhus" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Recorded live at a living room concert, Heart of Gold presents an intimate portrait of Danish guitarist/composer Alex Jønsson and his trio. The title tune opens the set: it's not the well known Neil Young song, but it does have an Americana tinge. Drummer Andreas Skamby sets up a pillow of sound using mallets, bassist Jens ...

In a world that is fast-paced and in constant movement, contemplation has become an increasingly important value. However, it is a value that it is sometimes hard to achieve.
