I recently started doing soloconcerts which has been a very rewarding challenge to meet.

The first was during the 2012 Copenhagen Jazz festival. The second was in Vilnius, Lithuania where I performed for a filled Sct. Catherines Church with live radio recording.

The concert in Vilnius is a rare occasion to hear Jacob Fischer as a solo guitarist. The repertoire will contain standards from the classic jazzguitar repertoire, original compositions and reworkings of Scandinavian folk songs by Fischer as well as Choro and Bossa Nova music, inspired by his recent trip to Brazil.

Jacob Fischer
Born in 1967, guitarist Jacob Fischer made his debut at the Copenhagen jazz festival at 17 and has since then been one of the hardest working musicians in Scandinavia.
For nearly two decades Fischer has worked with the best Scandinavian musicians as well as with visiting jazz greats such as Art Farmer, Lee Konitz, Toots Thielemans, Scott Hamilton, John Abercrombie, Richard Galliano, Monty Alexander and Chris Potter.

He is credited with more than 150 CDs of which some have been selected jazz record of the year : In Sweden 1992(Peter Gullin) and in Denmark 1996(Thomas Fryland) and 2004(String Swing).

Since 1992 Jacob has been a member of violin legend Svend Asmussens quartet and in 2008 he finally decided to release an album in his own name, Jacob Fischer Trio (Gateway music) featuring Asmussen - still swinging at 92! on six tracks. A second album entitled "Blues" has just been released.

Popular with audiences and critics alike Fischer has recieved numerous awards : Django d'or - jazz performer of the year 2001, Silkeborg jazz price in 2003, and as the only Danish musician, the three "great" prizes, JASA prize 1992 (Danish jazz critics award), The Ben Webster prize in 1996 and Palaebar´s prize  in 1998.

Jacob Fischer recently returned from a trip to Brazil and a highly succesful tour and CD recording in the US.
