About this image

Jakob Bro and Palle Mikkelborg - two notable musicians from different generations, but with several things in common. They are both characterized by a lyrical tone and an alluring musical universe. They have constantly explored new musical possibilities - and therefore they have both put an unmistakable fingerprints on the Danish jazz. Jakob Bro's luminous talent is no longer a secret, either at home or abroad. With projects like Jakob Bro Trio, Bro / Knak, Jakob Bro Tentet, a trilogy with Lee Konitz - and much else - he is a musician who constantly develops and redefines the jazz language. So it is only natural that Bro soon publish his second trio album at the renowned German label ECM Records. At the very same company, Jakob Bro and Palle Mikkelborg only a week after this concert they will record their first album together, also as a quartet with Thomas Morgan and Jon Christensen in Rainbow Studios in Oslo. The two have through a number of years had this project in the pipeline, and the concert here and the subsequent ECM recording is in many ways the culmination of their musical friendship

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
