Without making any fuss, Jakob Bro keeps on being a rare and brilliant guitarist. Sound, space, melody, silence… the freshly-forty-year-old Danish musician isn’t a member of ECM for nothing. With Streams, his second album for Manfred Eicher’s Munich label released in 2016 with bass player Thomas Morgan and drummer Joey Baron, he continued to refine the values and playing style that suit him so well. Under the influence of his peer Bill Frisell, Bro knead some stretched textures and overlaid them with impeccable virtuosity. Two years later, the three men met again for this Bay Of Rainbows album recorded live at New York Jazz Standard in July 2017. A new zero gravity adventure which sees the fascinating relationship between Bro and Morgan continue (Bro calls Morgan his “musical soulmate”). The elder of the trio, Baron, isn’t here by chance, as Bro met Morgan when he was playing in Baron’s band… For this live album, their back-and-forths are whispered and the improvisations are almost like innuendos. This soft restraint never leads to monotony, quite the contrary, it’s what gives the album its radical grace.  – Marc Zisman
