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.

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.
