On my way to Montreux Jazz this summer, I stopped by in Copenhagen and went to Blågårds Café at Nörrebro where Jacob Fischer Trio plus Francesco Cali played that evening. It was a very warm summer evening and the accordeon-like-jazz filled our minds as sure as the beers in our glasses did and it became a very memorable evening. I found a shaky video on my iPhone where you can see and listen on a short clip and try to imagine the summer cosmopolite feeling in that Copenhagen where so many great jazz artists has lived.
