Beethoven Reimagined as Jazz

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
