Danish guitarist Jakob Bro had the good fortune to play in bands with American drummer Paul Motian and Polish trumpeter Tomasz Stańko, two brilliant jazz masters who are no longer with us. It is no surprise, then, that the poetry that characterized their work also flows from his playing. Stańko's expressiveness and Motian's subtlety filter, perhaps unconsciously, into the music of Uma Elmo, Bro's project for the trio, which pits the craft of the storyteller against the speed of contemporary forgetfulness. Bro is joined by Norwegian trumpeter Arve Henriksen, whose flute-like sound and links to Zen Buddhism make him one of today's most original jazz players, and by Barcelona drummer Jorge Rossy. Behind the oneiric universe, the dense fabric of Bro's notes and Henriksen's whispered melodies, lies an all-encompassing music drawn northward by life.
