It's a Limited Edition of 25 numbered CD-Rs in a gatefold card case with a booklet. The front cover art and the CD print is pressed from the linocut carved by the musicians. Cover art by Malwa Grabowska/Hipermania & Tomo Jacobson.
The double bass player Tomo Jacobson and the tubaist Rasmus Kjærgård Lund are doing two parallel solo projects - each of them is releasing a new solo album every month, based every time on a new solo concept. That is 12 solo albums each in 2017!
The February album was all about wood. Every sound on this album was produced either with wooden pieces contacting different parts of the double bass, or with Tomo's hands contacting the wooden parts of the double bass.
This album is dedicated to Jerzy Jacobson, Tomo's forest grandfather who died a few years ago.
Total time: 40 minutes.
Recorded on March 4, 2017 at Koncertkirken in Copenhagen, Denmark. All music on the album is improvised.
Cover art is hand painted by the musicians using the linocut technique.
"This is a monumental and excellent project, showing both the technical mastery of Tomo, as well as his sensibility, sensitivity, empathy, attentiveness, creativity and imagination. A monumental achievement!!!"
