Jacob Young Quintet: Forever Young

“Premium” is Montmartre’s series of rare intimate concerts with jazz giants that you cannot normally meet on small intimate stages. These concerts are priced above the normal tickets to cover costs and travel for these heavy-weights.

On Jacob Young's third ECM release he introduced a new quintet, in which he is joined by Trygve Seim and all three members of the Marcin Wasilewski Trio. As a composer, Young keeps his heart on display, balancing buoyant melodic lines with a slight touch of melancholy that suits the Polish rhythm section perfectly. There's a slow, deliberate approach to storytelling that is distinctly European. Young and Seim have known each other since they were, respectively, 17 and 16, and attending the same Norwegian music high school. This long-time partnership clearly shows when Seim is moving in breathy unison with Young's dark, organic acoustic tone. Seim has a presence and mood-setting ability that alludes to fellow Nordic saxophonist Jan Garberek. There's a multilayered delicacy to the music and performance of this quintet.

På Jacob Youngs tredje ECM-udgivelse introducerede han en ny kvintet, hvor han blev tilsluttet af saxofonisten Trygve Seim og alle tre medlemmer af Marcin Wasilewski Trio. Som komponist sænker Young paraderne, viser sit hjerte frem og balancerer flydende mellem melodiske linjer med et lille strejf af melankoli, der passer perfekt til den polske rytmesektion. Der er en langsom og fri tilgang til historiefortællingen. Young og Seim har kendt hinanden, siden de var henholdsvis 17 og 16, hvor de gik i samme norske musikhøjskole. Dette langtidspartnerskab ses tydeligt, når Seim bevæger sig i svævende samhørighed med Youngs mørke, organiske akustiske tone. Seim har en stemningssættende tilstedeværelse, der minder om landsmanden og saxofonisten Jan Garberek. Der er en flerlags delikatesse i denne kvintets musik og optræden.
