Welcome

Downbeat, The Village Voice and New York City Jazz Record select So Many Roads for 'Best of 2014' lists!!! 

"Danish bassist Anne Mette Iversen is now based in Berlin, though her leading role in the Brooklyn Jazz Underground has had a huge impact on the New York scene. Her Double Life ensemble combines jazz quintet and string quartet with extraordinary results: Just behold the profusion of harmonic color and naturally flowing swing on the group's second release, So Many Roads. The album says a lot in just under 37 minutes." - David R. Adler, The Village Voice

We made it into spot #4 on The Village Voice's Top 10 Jazz Albums of 2014, among the 'Best of 2014' in the catogory 'New releases' in The New York City Jazz Record and onto Downbeat's 'Best of' 2014.      If you had any doubts whether or not to buy So Many Roads you can feel safe and secure doing it now! Purchase So Many Roads through this link.   

 

"Highly and wildly creative" - "Bartok-like strings, bop rhythmes and lyrical solos" - "It's a wonderful example of art reflecting life"; plus 4 to 4 1/2 star reviews in major jazz publications.   - Just a few excerpts from the press about So Many Roads

"The recent proliferation of excellent young female bassists is heartening. Anne Mette Iversen brings instrumental dexterity as well as sharp compositional and band-leading skills with her."                          The New Yorker

"...Iversen's playing being constantly subtle and suggestive, dropping hints that seem to linger in the air."      Shaun Brady, Downbeat

"It's incredibly compelling music, full of gorgeous musical ideas."   Michael J. West, The Washington City Paper

"Her ability to combine modern themes and classic structures into something that reaches a deeply personal level with each record is rare among composers in recent years."       Stephan Moore, JazzWrap

"Iversen's intelligent writing style organically balances intricate, through-composed ensemble playing and wide-open improvistaion in a chamberjazz aesthetic."  Bill Milkowski, JazzTimes  

"The thing with Iversen is that her artistry divulges a little more of itself with each listen until the music I thought was pretty good at first listen turns into an exquisite work of art by the 5th or 6th."  S. Victor Aaron, Something Else

"Her picturesque compositions cross all musical strata and shatter genre in her able hands....It is, in a word, Brilliant!"     Brent-Anthony Johnson, Bass Musician Magazine
