An album of graceful, harmonically rich and rhythmically-alert jazz, “Forever Young” draws upon both long-established friendships and chance encounters. On his third ECM disc, Norwegian-American guitarist Jacob Young introduces a new quintet, in which he is joined by Trygve Seim and all three members of the Marcin Wasilewski Trio. Young and Seim have known each other since they were, respectively, 17 and 16, and attending the same Norwegian music high school. Already then they were in and out of each other’s bands, sharing some of the same musical influences. Paths diverged when Jacob went to New York and Trygve to Trondheim to study, but when Young made his first recordings for Norwegian labels in the late 1990s, Seim was a valued contributor on albums including “Glow” and “Pieces of Time”.
