“Trying to put your finger on Jakob Bro’s guitar style can be like trying to describe the essence of air,” the New Yorker 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 the Tomasz Stańko Quintet. Bro leads his own quartet in the first part of his Pierre Boulez Saal debut, performing a number of his own compositions. Trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire and percussionist Marilyn Mazur join for the second set.
