Jacob Artved is the youngest of a very talented new generation of Danish jazz guitar players. At the age of 20 he has already been a working musician for years, being introduced on the scene by Danish guitar legend Jacob Fischer at the age of 15. He was admitted to the Royal Academy of Music as the youngest student ever, but chose to drop out, move to New York and spent the long nights jamming instead.
On this live-recording from the legendary Jazz club Montmartre in Copenhagen he is featured by one of the greatest drummers of all time, Mr. Louis Hayes. Commenting on the experience, Jacob says: “To play this music with someone you feel so much admiration for can almost be an intimidating experience and, in some cases, make you hold back your creativity in utter respect and fear of doing something wrong. This feeling is something that I think most young musicians, including myself, have experienced at some point in their career. Of course, those situations are what make you stronger, practice more, and think even harder! Although sometimes you’re lucky enough to find someone that you admire and feel all the same respect for, yet don’t feel the big gap between you in age difference, experience, mindset and accomplishments.”
In a very special way Hayes is the connection back to the most legendary period of jazz when he in 1962 sat behind the drums backing Bud Powell and Nat & Julian “Cannonball” Adderly. The creators of Bebop and modern jazz. It is great to see that in the year 2020 this is still relevant to the youngest of talents in the business. On this release, Jacob Artved bridges multiple generations and shows us why this artform is more alive than ever.
