Jakob Bro & Midori Takada

Set 2
Jakob Bro, Palle Mikkelborg, Anja Lechner & Marilyn Mazur

“Trying to put your finger on Jakob Bro’s guitar style can be like trying to describe the essence of air,” a critic once said about the Danish guitarist. Praised for his minimalist yet emotionally charged playing, he is a former member of Paul Motian’s Electric Bebop Band and of the Tomasz Stańko Quintet. In the first part of his Pierre Boulez Saal debut, Bro is joined by Japanese multi-percussionist and composer Midori Takada for a fully improvised set. He then leads a quartet, performing new music as well as compositions from his 2018 album Returnings together with trumpeter Palle Mikkelborg, cellist Anja Lechner, and percussionist Marilyn Mazur.
