In the Heart of Nature: Køs and Mare Berger

Read "In the Heart of Nature: Køs and Mare Berger" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

Human beings have always tried to figure out their relationship with nature. We look at nature from a distance, but we are also a part of it.

Read "Live in Schauburg, Bremen, Germany, 1983" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

The history of jazz is not only a story of great individuals, but also a narrative of partnerships that have shaped the development of the music. Just think of Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong and Earl Hines and Al Cohn and Zoot Sims. There's also a proud tradition of combining saxophone and piano with ...

Javier Subatin: Variaciones

Read "Variaciones" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

When Argentinian guitarist Javier Subatin released his album Autotelic (Sintoma, 2018), it was a refreshing examination of form that took its point of departure in the intimate interplay between guitar and piano, occasionally enhanced by drums, bass and saxophone. It was a concept that did Subatin's complex compositions justice as he managed to find the right ...

Read "Déjà Vu: The Arista Recordings (1979-1994)" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

Every artist, even great ones, experiences peaks and valleys. When Dionne Warwick signed with Arista Records in 1979, she had nothing to prove, but her glory also seemed like a thing of the past.

Carsten Meinert: C.M. Musictrain

Read "C.M. Musictrain" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

Collectors of rare Danish jazz are in much better position in 2020 than they once were.

Jeremy Cunningham: The Weather Up There

Read "The Weather Up There" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

This can be done in many ways, but it is rare that an album connects emotion with complex layers of memory, interpersonal relations, politics and societal structures. Nevertheless, this is what drummer and ...
