These are videos that I like: Jakob Bro Trio at the Bimhuis


jakob-bro-streamsToday’s featured videos come courtesy of the Jakob Bro Trio, who perform “Evening Song” and “Oktober” at Amsterdam’s Bimhuis.

Later today, I’ll be posting a rundown of some recent ECM Records releases.  Bro’s newest album Streams will be counted among them.  Be sure to check back in this afternoon.

These videos are part of an excellent series put out by the Dutch Public Broadcast channel VPRO Vrije Geluiden.  I love how the view from the Bimhuis stage shows the city on the other side of those huge windows.  I’ve always thought there was something cool about the dichotomy between the peaceful music on one side of the glass and the bustle of city traffic on the other.

Now, here’s those videos…

Your video personnel:  Jakob Bro (guitar), Thomas Morgan (double bass) and Joey Baron (drums).

“Evening Song”


And if you don’t feel like waiting for that write-up and just want to buy the album right now, you can scoop it up on Amazon.
