Description

Like Martin Jacobsen's well-received SteepleChase debut album 'Current State' this live recording from Copenhagen's Jazzhouse features Doug Raney on guitar and Rick Hollander on drums, with Jesper Lundgaard joining on bass. They perform classic jazz compositions by the likes of Benny Golson, Charles Lloyd, Duke Ellington and Hank Mobley.

It is of certain significance to think of the fact that Martin Jacobsen was born and grew up in Copenhagen, which has been arguably the European capital of jazz. Martin basically taught himself jazz at the age of nineteen in this richly jazz-orientated city. He later moved to Paris, another European hot-spot of jazz.

"Martin Jacobsen, Danish saxophone star with a rich and smooth sound, well confirmed in the Coltrane tradition. Doug Raney, American guitarist launched by the Chet Baker Trio, the excellent descendant of the highly distinguished Jimmy Raney. Two acclaimed musicians both evolving in an aesthetic of their own which are not necessarily similar. The result, performed with a quartet deluxe, has chances to surprise many a listener!" - Jazzman, France

Personnel: Martin Jacobsen (tenor saxophone), Doug Raney (guitar), Jesper Lundgaard (bass), Rick Hollander (drums)
