Thanks to my dear friend Max the 100 CD’s Project has taken “No More, No Less” to Copenhagen, Denmark!

Max was the original keyboard player in my band Water Babies and one of the sweetest guys I know. He and his wife have been globe-trotting the last few years and recently landed in Copenhagen. They are expecting their first child any day now. But in the middle of it all they found time to drop some CD’s around town in the freshly fallen snow!

Here are the photos, along with Max’s commentary:

CD #66: A Lonely Bench

CD #66: A Lonely Bench

Waiting for a soul to brave the snow and lend some company to this lonely record. When I walked by again a couple of hours later, the disc was gone!

CD #67: What a Cool Bike!

Hitchin’ a ride…

CD #68: Niels Bohr's Grave

CD #68: Niels Bohr's Grave

This is the grave of Niels Bohr, the world famous Danish physicist, Nobel Prize winner, and founder of the institute that I’m working at.

CD #69: How Cool is This???

Looks like she’s trying to convince him of the beauty of jazz… (“Just try this album, it’ll blow your mind!”). The white field in the background is actually a frozen lake.

CD #70: Kaffeebar, Copenhagen

CD #70: Kaffeebar, Copenhagen

Waiting for customers in one of my favorite Copenhagen coffee shops. The owner always has great music playing, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he snatched up the CD and put it into rotation at the cafe.


Thanks Max & Kari! I hope you didn’t freeze in the process.

And as it turns out, as I was writing this post, Kari gave birth to their son Eli!!!! Congrats you two (I mean three). Can’t wait to meet him.

For your listening pleasure, here’s a tune from Water Babies called “Rainczech” featuring Max on keys:

Hi Jason,
I am Erika from Hungary. I spent a few days in Copenhagen in February and imagine what happened!?:-) I found one of your CD:-) It was behind that statue where the girl tries to convince the boy…I was very happy to found it (besides on that day was my birthday). I like your idea very much. Your letter was fantastic and your music is very good, too. I hope you don’t mind if I popularize your music in Hungary:-)))
Erika
