|Jakob Bro Gefion Limited Vinyl LP + Download
The trio of guitarist Jakob Bro, bassist Thomas Morgan and drummer Jon Christensen made its ECM recording debut with ‘Gefion’. Now this “brilliant” album is made available in an audiophile vinyl pressing, with a free mp3 download.
“Though the mood here is muted, the ghostly themes are very lyrical, and the group’s closeness unmistakable. Bro is a texture player, often restricting himself to warm, slow-moving chords and gleaming harmonics, and Christensen is an old master of saying everything that’s needed while staying out of the way - so it’s Morgan who is often the busiest presence, pressing quick, high-register countermelodies against echo-shimmers and soft mallet patterns from the others.” - John Fordham, The Guardian
“Gefion does not reveal its secrets quickly, and there is no hurry to this music, but there is great depth. Absence is as powerful as presence for Bro; each phrase is perfectly plucked from the ether.” - Jon Carvell, London Jazz News
