Old Friends




Recorded at Copenhagen Jazz House, November 30, 1994. All titles previously unissued! Bob Brookmeyer was very pleased with this session, taped by the jazz department of the Danish Broadcast Corporation."I've played with this working trio of Thomas Clausen, Mads Vinding and Alex Riel many times. We're old friends and the fact that we are so familiar with each other's approaches certainly makes all the difference. I feel these performances are very representative of our work. They are truly the cream of those sessions. The tunes, with one exception, are old popular standards which are great to play on. I've recorded them at other times and in different contexts and it was good to get back to them for detailed exploration in this intimate setting."
