„Villa Nova“  – the Jakob Bro Trio with

Jakob Bro on guitar,
Jakob Høyer on drums and
Anders AC Christensen on bass.

„Anders Christensen – better known as AC – has been one of a group of Danish bassists, who during the 90s gave up the purist approach to their instrument, and instead began playing with an attitude rather than concentrating on making the bass sound clean, tending towards a ‚classical‘ ideal. AC’s style is in this sense ‚physical‘ – he really dives into the music with his instrument – and at the same time highly dexterous, allowing him to adopt different genres easily and still maintaining his personal features. AC has toured and played with a great number of internationally renowned jazz artists, such as Paul Motian, Billy Hart, George Garzone and Kurt Rosenwinkel as well a being a regular member of Once Around the Park, The Raveonettes and countless other groups.“ (

    Noch relaxter, reine Magie, ist für mich, Heilmittel gegen die Hitze, Steve Tibbetts‘ letztes Album auf ECM!
