Weightless: A Film on Jakob Bro

image 0

In our brand-new July/Aug. guitar issue, Thomas Conrad profiles the singular guitarist Jakob Bro, a sideman to trumpeter Tomasz Stanko and an exciting bandleader in his own right. His most recent project, Balladeering (Loveland), is a gorgeously atmospheric document that features a heavyweight band of Lee Konitz, Bill Frisell, Ben Street and Paul Motian. Included with the deluxe edition of the album is a DVD entitled Weightless. Directed by Sune Blicher, the film documents the recording sessions at Avatar Studios in New York and allows viewers an intimate perspective into Bro’s creative process. Visit Bro’s official site and click on the Media tab to view clips from the film.
