MOONBOW, also known as a lunar rainbow, is a rainbow produced by light reflected off the surface of the moon, as opposed to direct sunlight. It lives in the opposite part of the sky from the moon. MOONBOW is quite rare to be spotted, and is relatively faint, due to the smaller amount of light reflected from the surface of the moon. It is friendly, but firm. It grows freedom on the left side of its upper back.

MOONBOW is an international septet playing freedom music full of pure energy, levitating improvisations, ecstatic grooves, and unforgettable themes.
The band consists of seven accomplished, internationally recognized improvisers from five different European countries. It was founded in early 2015 in Copenhagen, Denmark, where their paths suddenly crossed. The music for MOONBOW was composed by the bass player Tomo Jacobson, but the imperative of working with the band was to give the band members freedom to shape the material their own way, fully engaging their unique, strong, and diverse creative intuitions. This way MOONBOW's music always stays alive and forever keeps surprising audiences around the planet Earth.

MOONBOW is into, about, and for freedom. It was created and it is executed with an intention to express the conviction that we are all free within, and to inspire earthlings to freedom.

"Like all true artists, Jacobson is on a spiritual quest and the music on the impossibly titled album is filled with hymns and anthems of wild beauty."
4/4 stars
(Jakob Baekgaard -
"Jacobson's compositions are strong, straight through, and the ensemble is a wonderful, untamed beast. (...) A distinctive and appealing sound."
4/4 stars
(Dan McClenaghan -
“The six-part suite «When the sleeping...» indeed dances and grooves. The septet sound as small big band, playing with intense passion and conviction but also with a great sense of freedom.”
(Eyal Hareuveni -
"Mr. Jacobson obviously spent time writing and arranging these pieces to keep this ensemble on their toes and focused. (...) I get the feeling that is going to take several listening sessions before I figure out where all those buried treasures are lurking."
(Bruce Lee Gallanter -
“Denn Musik wäre, so Parker, nicht Musik, wenn sie nicht die Liebezum Leben über alles stellen würde. Mit miesen Resentiments schafft man kein C Dur.”
(Rigobert Dittmann - Bad Alchemy #92 -
“The pieces that Jacobson has produced here are winding and elaborate, and they require a great deal of attention on the part of the listener. However, the rewards to be reaped are great - like every maze, a prize awaits the patient seeker.” 4.5/5 stars

(Derek Stone - Free Jazz Blog -
“This is one of the most exciting albums I’ve heard all this year.”
(Dave Sumner - Bird is the Worm -
"Ambitious set, with its broad sweep and towering heights, moody colors."
