Jakob Bro "Time" feat. Bill Frisell, Lee Konitz, Thomas Morgan

Danish guitarist and composer Jakob Bro has just released his follow-up to the ground breaking "Balladeering" from 2009. The new album "Time"  is out now on his own label Lovelands. An album of remarkable musical and poetic qualities.

Again, Bro recorded the album at the Avatar Studio in New York. And again with Bill Frisell (gui) and Lee Konitz (sax). New to the list of international  musicians is Thomas Morgan (bas) with whom Bro is working with here for the first time. 

The album  has 8 tracks, all composed by Bro especially with line-up in mind. I rather not say too much about this masterpiece, but rather prefer you to embrace.

New artist representation: Jesper Zeuthen Trio + Henrik List

It's always special to start working with new artists. I am really proud to be able to introduce two new stars among the artists I work with. Both are maestro's within their field.

  • Jesper Zeuthen Trio - Jazz trio
  •  Henrik List - Writer and journalist

Jesper Zeuthen trio is a trio that I feel in love since their first release. Bandleader Jesper Zeuthen (sax) is a legend on the danish jazzscene. Since the late 60's he has been on the front of the scene. Musically and artistically he has always played with the spearheads of the new scene. His history include member og Pierre Dørge´s New Jungle Orchestra and sideman with Abdullah Ibrahim, Don Cherry, Paul Motian, Jakob Bro, Anderskov Accident and many more. 
Adam Pultz Melbye (bas) and Thomas Præstegaard (dr) are they young musicians and with their unique sense of rhythmic, intense playing they give Zeuthen the space and impro he deserves. Very strong and soulful. This is a very INTENSE live experince, which they have now also ready for release.
New album out soon. Listen and download free

Henrik List is one hell of a writer. More related to the late beat generation of american poetry, he surely has his very unique place on the danish litterature scene. Just check his website for links to his books and stories from both the gutter, punks, outsiders of the worlds with all that it takes.

Henrik Lists subjects are often provocative, sexual, intense characters. From the boulevards of L.A. to the streets of Bangkok where ladyboys sell themselves and downtown Copenhagen.

IKI video from release concert 20th June 2011 at Charlottenborg

ONE SPOT at Charlottenborg  finished the first season with The 9 voices in IKI, who performed a breathtaking performance at Café Charlottenborg here in Copenhagen. We were celebrating the release of their debut album, out now via ILK Music. IKI released the album in Scandinavia on the 20th 
June, and will also be out via worldwide download on Itunes.

It was a tremendous evening with the 9 girls performing along with special invited musicians from the jazz and improscene. They showed that they are one of the most innovative, expressive female groups currently on the new music scene in Scandinavia. 

The evening sun was shining through the windows, and the voices kept 200 stunning people captured for 1 hour or more. During the free improvised performance, musicians susch as Lotte Anker (sax/DK), Aino Juutilainen (cello), Tobias Wiklund (trp) and dancers from The Danish National School of Conetemporary Dance. It was a magical night.

The album is already receiving fantastic reviews in Filand, Denmark and Norway.

"Nordic Vocal Senstion" - Dagsavisen, Norway.

4 Stars in Gaffa, Denmark

And in Suomi Jazz they write:
”IKI relies on the guidance of the moment, the miracle of improvisation. Multicoloured harmonies, jammed rhythms and comps and strong lead vocals. Clarity and strong melodic musicality are in subtle discourse with experimental techniques. One can only hope for the opportunity to experience IKI live in concert” – Suomijazz (FIN)

IKI -. The power of pure vocal

Music has this special soul, voice, inner sense, and sometimes you just feel lucky, special and wonderful when music takes into a new world. 

I know it’s a clichy  but i somehow cant find other words when it comes to the very first meeting I had with the Scandinavian vocal group IKI. A 9 piece of pure impro vocals during  the annual The Musketeer Festival in Copenhagen in late December 2010.  It’s festival organized by Kresten Osgood  - one of the key drummers and jazz music man  here.

It was here that IKI suddenly got me laughing, smiling  disappearing into pure music of just vocals. How their style, sound, expression and pure improvisation captured me so strong, that I simply had to get back to them. 

And here they are, coming out with their debut album soon.  We are now teaming up together getting the world to know much more about IKI.  Soon more, but click here and get free downloads.

 For more info, just contact me. Will be delighted to introduce this wonderful all Scandinavian group to you
