Ranked 2nd in 'Le top jazz' of Mezzo TV (French National TV)

Jan. 2017

-------------------------------------------

'We Want You' won the title 'Album of the Year' in the Danish jazz magazine Jazz Special.


Jazz Special, Feb. 2017

-------------------------------------------

‘We Want You is an attractive, strongly swinging release rich in both song-soaked melody and diversely turned rhythmic urgency.. The trio shape a fine post-Jarrett album of considerable emotional warmth, melodic freshness and rhythmic conviction.’


**** Jazz Journal, Michael Tucker (UK). Mar. 2017

-------------------------------------------

‘This Danish piano virtuous is something extraordinary. We are talking about the fastest fingers of Northern Europe, an equilibrism exploding into crazy improvisations that mesmerizes its audiences.  Fantasy, magic and playfulness…’


Karlskoga Tidning, Björn Reimers (SE). Feb. 2017

-------------------------------------------

‘Ce n'est pas une coïncidence si Jacob Christoffersen est l'un des pianistes danois les plus demandés. Sa technique est impressionnante et le public apprécie particulièrement son jeu à la fois simple et brillant.’

 

Gilbert Joseph (Fr). Jan. 2017

-------------------------------------------

‘En intens og medrivende trio-plade… Christoffersen får det komplicerede til at lyde ukompliceret. Han spiller med en flydende musikalsk ligefremhed, der nok har et nordisk afsæt og alligevel er så meget andet..’


Jazznyt, Niels Overgaard (DK). Jan. 2017

-------------------------------------------

‘The groove goes straight into your feet… Christoffersen has a deep and touching tone - an album absolutely worth giving a listen!’


SWR2, Ursula Böhmer (DE). Dec 2016

-------------------------------------------

‘Et uhyre vellykket album … medrivende, melodisk og mættet af fortælling og tyngde. Et næsten telepatisk naturligt sammenspil.’


**** Ivan Rod (DK). Oct. 2016

-------------------------------------------

‘We Want You’ is a dynamic trio record filled with musical joy and melodic inventiveness… Christoffersen's playing is virtuosic, but at the same time completely natural and there is an immediate clarity about his melodic lines. He simply makes the piano sing!’


Jacob Baekgaard, All About Jazz. Oct. 2016

-------------------------------------------

‘Et nesten utrolig swingende pianospill og med noen perler av noen komposisjoner ...Fra start til mål er dette en av de fineste, streite piano-trioene jeg har hørt på lang tid! Nydelig!’


Salt Peanuts, Jan Granlie (NO). Sep. 2016
