MUSICIAN Born:

Jakob Bro

The young guitarist Jakob Bro has not only made an impression on the Danish jazz scene; as part of the group led by legendary drummer Paul Motian, Bro also performs with many top American musicians. These can be heard on the Motian Group's album Garden of Eden (ECM 2006), where Bro enters a musical soundscape whose intense and atmospheric expression he has carried over into his own music. "Motian's way of writing and playing music has been a great source of inspiration to me. His melodies and harmonies are fantastically strong, which makes it easy to open up the sound without losing the actual core of the individual compositions." Bro has never received any musical training besides short periods spent at the Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, the Berklee College of Music in Boston and New School University in New York

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. This is a studio recording with richer sound, but the band's music shows considerable growth beyond that. The title tune opens the set, a rubato exercise in ...

A Northern Code: Boundaries

Read "Boundaries" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

A Northern Code is a collaboration between Norwegian guitarist Mathias Marstrander, Scottish double bassist Andrew Robb and Norwegian drummer Sigurd Steinkpf. The group balances improvisation with composition; one hallmark is the use of conceptual goals to help shape the improvisations. This is demonstrated right off the bat with opener “Slow Motion," which ably delivers on its ...

AkBank Jazz Festival Istanbul, Turkey October 18-25 2019 I arrived in Istanbul during the world-wide outrage that followed the United States pull-out from Syria and the consequent military intervention by Turkey. The new humongous airport looked rather empty compared to the crowded spaces of the old one; the trip to ...

Read "And I Love Her" reviewed by John Kelman

Trio Treats

Read "Trio Treats" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

This episode is dominated by trios, perhaps the most popular format in jazz today. Steve Lehman's new The People I Love debuts (with the addition of the formidable pianist Craig Taborn), definitely a must-hear for 2019. Golden Valley Is Now reunites Taborn with Dave King and Reid Anderson (they all grew up together), while another threesome ...
