Beethoven Reimagined as Jazz

by

For the past 16 years, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey has been reinventing impressionistic and improvisational contemporary jazz. LUDWIG is their most beautifully belabored project to date — a reinterpretation of Beethoven’s 3rd and 6th symphonies in jazz, three years in the making.

JFJO’s new album, Stay Gold, is a treasure trove of melodic experimental jazz magic — we highly recommend it.

Thanks, @teddyz
