Forever Young features melodically inventive, harmonically sophisticated and rhythmically alert jazz, composed by Norwegian-American guitarist Jacob Young and played by a spirited team of contemporaries. Young and saxophonist Trygve Seim are friends since school days, and have been heard on the Norwegian jazz scene in numerous combinations and contexts over the years. They are joined on this album by the Polish pianist, bassist and drummer widely known as the Marcin Wasilewski Trio, a group with its own 20 years playing history.
Death is the ultimate insult to the scientific mind. While science, technology, and medicine have advanced in leaps and bounds during the past century, humans have still not cracked the most elemental challenge of all: how to overcome our mortality and live for hundreds of years. Forever Young explores the age-old pursuit of increasing human longevity and reveals where our quest for immortality could eventually take us. Forever Young challenges us to reconsider our conventional notion of life, aging, and death. During the past century, global human life expectancy has doubled and it continues to increase every year. People are living longer lives due to a combination of better nutrition, healthier lifestyles, and spectacular advances in medical science and health care.
