Jakob Sørensen is now releasing his second album as a bandleader. Since finishing his studies in Aarhus Jakob Sørensen has been working on the record NOMAD, which stylistic is a natural sequel to the debut album Bagland.
The evocative cover has been created by the international recognized artist Nedko Solakov. Both the cover picture and the simple design, designed by Andreas Nordström creates clear references to the Nordic landscape, from which Jakob Sørensen finds so inspiring.
NOMAD will be released on a 10” vinyl and on digital platforms through the Aarhus label Jaeger Community Music.

Inhale, and prepare for a forward thinking, visceral album. This concept is constantly searching and each individual musician, along with the virtuoso playing of Yazz express their own individual feelings that reflect their own lives in our world today. The production is superb, and that wonderful artwork on the album cover seals in this mind blowing album. For the forward thinking Jazz head, this is one to spend time with. I believe Dizzy Gillespie would have seriously appreciated. George Prince.
I’m particularly impressed with the amount of blues that has been injected into this concept. It also displays a natural ability to flow between ballads and more vibrancy. The orchestration is beautifully arranged, and at times subtle elements of Miles early work. Impressive music. George Prince.
