Bjørn Fred Jensen trio on the radio



When we played our last gig 21/7 at Tango Y Vinos in Copenhagen, a journalist named Anne smaakjær was present and decided to make a review of the concert. In this radio podcast you can hear her being interviewed about the music, the place and about Django. And you can hear one of the tunes from the concert; "I'll see you in my dreams". 

Our spot starts from around 2h14

Bjørn Fred Jensen trio - Acoustic jazz in the style of Django Reinhardt

Since i heard the beautiful Django Reinhardt piece "Nuages" for the first time around 2003 i've been a huge fan and I've been listening, practicing, jamming and travelled to France several times to be part of and to play this wonderful music.

Here's a video from my latest concert the 21th of july 2012 at Tango Y Vinos in Copenhagen. With me is a great and swingin' rhyhtm section: Robert Pilgaard and Christian Henriksen.

Vocal Jam at Café Intime

Every tuesday at Café Intime at Frederiksberg, there's a nice and vibrant vocal jam session called " Happy Singers night". There's a great rhythm section and lots of brave and talented singers:

On this one i play the famous tune "The Lady is A tramp" with a charming singer called Jette Barr.
