In New York’s legendary Avatar Studios the young Danish guitarist Jakob Bro has gathered some of the most renowned contemporary jazz musicians, including Lee Konitz, Paul Motian and Bill Frisell. They have two days to create an album – two days to turn Jakob’s compositions into a genuine musical experience. Jakob’s songs are all new compositions that have never been played, but somehow the musicians manage to find into the fragile and dreamlike nature of the songs in just one or two takes. Together they create a telepathic connection that gives room to each individual and creates a common sound. It is a certain way of being together.
