Jens Jefsen: Music Between Gigs

Read "Music Between Gigs" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Danish bassist Jens Jefsen returns with another bass-centric album which is definitely not “solo bass," a sequel to A Secret Sigh (Gateway Music, 2016). Like the previous album the music emphasizes melody--which Jefsen finds in standards, modern pop songs and his originals--and varied, colorful arrangements. Jefsen's “Esto Es Lo Mio" opens the set with a sprightly ...

Mette Juul: Change

Read "Change" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard


Change is an inevitable part of life and music.

Claus Waidtlow: A New Beginning

Read "A New Beginning" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard


Saxophonist Claus Waidtløw has been a vital part of the Danish jazz scene for many years.

Jan Lundgren: Potsdamer Platz

Read "Potsdamer Platz" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


Pianist Jan Lundgren is a fine example of a classically-trained European musician with a strong empathy with mainstream jazz. Potsdamer Platz is, in turn, a fine example of Lundgren's ability to compose fresh-sounding and often beautiful tunes, allied to a talented quartet of players who know just how to bring the pianist's ideas to life.

Jens Jefsen: A Secret Sigh

Read "A Secret Sigh" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Veteran Danish bassist Jens Jefsen could be a one-man band, but instead he accomplishes a rare feat here: a bass-centric recording that does not sound like a “bass album." Each track includes multiple bass parts--pizzicato and arco--along with percussive bass sounds and other percussion by Jefsen. While this description may sound like an endless bass solo, ...
