JAKOB BRO TRIO
Award-winning Danish guitarist and composer Jakob Bro is currently leading a trio of “musical soulmates” with legendary drummer Joey Baron and double bassist Thomas Morgan. In 2016, the trio released their highly-acclaimed, pioneering record, Streams for ECM Records, applauded by critics for its “spherical, beautiful, and melancholic soundscapes,” and “fascinating reinvention of melodicism.” Bro’s previous record, Gefion (2015) earned him a Danish Grammy Award and the Carl Prize for “Jazz Composer of the Year.” In Streams, Bro continues to refine the trio, emphasizing melody, sound, space, and interaction. Exploring musical moods and layered textures in unexpected directions, the Jakob Bro Trio trusts their ears to go wherever the music takes them.
Bro is an accomplished bandleader, having released 13 records with acclaimed musicians such as Lee Konitz, Bill Frisell, and Paul Motian over the years. The Jakob Bro Trio share a mutual language of melodic, open, and floating composition that will enrich audiences with their live experiences.
