Jakob Bro/Palle Mikkelborg/Marilyn Mazur

“Premium” is Montmartre’s series of rare intimate concerts with jazz giants that you cannot normally meet on small intimate stages. These concerts are priced above the normal tickets to cover costs and travel for these heavy-weights.
Jakob Bro (Guitar / DK)Palle Mikkelborg (Trumpet / DK)Marilyn Mazur (Percussion / DK)

In 2018, Jakob Bro and Palle Mikkelborg released the album "Returnings" on the record company ECM. The music is described as calm and subtle as it floats through quiet details and creates sound paintings of depth, warmth and beauty. It is songs from this record they will send through the room with Marilyn Mazur.

Jakob Bros' delicate, simple, melodic, intimate playing meets Mikkelborg's soft and sometimes Miles-like horn and is spiced with Marilyn Mazur's always virtuoso and playful contact with her own magnificent collection of percussion. A meeting of three Danish stars in music of peace and joy with room for play and improvisation.

Our restaurant is open before concert.

I 2018 udgav Jakob Bro og Palle Mikkelborg albummet ”Returnings” på pladeselskabet ECM. Musikken er blevet beskrevet, som rolig og subtil, når den svæver gennem stille detaljer og skaber lydmalerier med dybde, varme og skønhed. Sammen med Marilyn Mazur vil de spille musik fra denne plade.

Jakob Bros delikate, enkle, melodiske, intime spil mødes med Mikkelborgs bløde og undertiden Miles-agtige horn og krydres med Marilyn Mazurs altid virtuose og legende kontakt med sin egen storslående samling af perkussion. Her mødes tre danske stjerner i musikkens ro og glæder med plads til leg og improvisation.

This is not a jam, not at all, it is inspired collaboration where musical wholeness is the goal. It's 8-0 at the break. The tunes catch on. And it swings”. - Henrik Woldsgaard, Jazzspecial.

Now the group is out with their second album: "Take The B - Train" which we have the pleasure of listening to this evening!

By taking up the vocals as a compliment to the trumpet he adds an extra color to the "palette" that's been highly appreciated by audiences and critics alike.

The group returns to our stage with the release of their second album ”The Start of Something Big” in the bag. It will be a hard-swinging night with a wide variety of styles within the American jazz idiom and a couple of original compositions.

Den internationalt anerkendte trompetist Björn Ingelstam med sine rødder i det sydlige Sverige har været en tilbagevendende figur på den skandinaviske jazzscene. Siden han flyttede til New York 2013 og senere Paris i 2018, har Björn udviklet sin lyd i jazztraditionen og taget den ind i moderne tid med et fokus på swing og groove. Med sin vokal komplimenterer han trompeten og tilføjer en ekstra farve til paletten, der er blevet særdeles værdsat af både publikum og kritikere.

Gruppen vender tilbage til vores scene med udgivelsen af deres andet album ”The Start of Something Big”. Det bliver en hårdt svingende aften med en bred vifte af stilarter inden for det amerikanske jazzidiom og et par originale kompositioner.

Thigpen has played with basically every big name within the jazz genre; Dinah Washington, Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Pettiford, Oscar Peterson, Nancy Wilson, Monty Alexander, NHØP and Svend Asmussen among others. He also appeared on more than 1500 record releases – including 50 recordings with Oscar Peterson Trio. In Denmark, he gave lessons and acted mentor for selected, young Danish musicians – and was not least a colossal inspirator for the entire Danish jazz milieu.

In 2020, Ed Thigpen would have turned 90 years old and is therefore celebrated with two exclusive concerts by his Danish “favorite musicians”. The outstanding musicians Carsten Dahl, Mads Vinding and Karsten Bagge will this evening perform music collected from Thigpen’s own repertoire, while anecdotes from his long life in the service of jazz are told simultaneously.

Our restaurant is open before the concert.

Den legendariske amerikanske trommeslager Ed Thigpen, der var bosat i Danmark i mange år, var højt elsket og beundret for sit elegante trommespil. Hans unikke spil på bækkener og med brushes gav ham det fortjente tilnavn ”Mr. Taste”. Thigpen har spillet med stort set alle de store navne i jazzen; blandt andre Dinah Washington, Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Pettiford, Oscar Peterson, Nancy Wilson, Monty Alexander, NHØP og Svend Asmussen. Han medvirkede ligeledes på over 1500 pladeudgivelser - heriblandt på 50 indspilninger med Oscar Peterson Trio. Her i landet underviste han og var mentor for udvalgte, yngre danske musikere – og var ikke mindst en kolossal inspiration for hele det danske jazzmiljø.

I 2020 ville Ed Thigpen være fyldt 90, og han hyldes derfor ved to eksklusive koncerter af nogle af sine yndlingsmusikere. De fremragende musikere Carsten Dahl, Mads Vinding og Karsten Bagge vil denne aften fremføre musik hentet fra Thigpens eget repertoire, mens anekdoter fra hans lange liv i jazzens tjeneste fortælles sideløbende.

The saxophonist Pernille Bévort presents her own trio - Bévort 3, with bassist Morten Ankarfeldt and drummer Espen Laub von Lillienskjold. Pernille Bévort is known for her lively and imaginative playing, especially on the tenor and soprano saxophone.

This is the kind of trio jazz, where each member gives all they got – together - and where improvisations and chances are taken. These three amazing musicians embrace everything from the moving swing to the lyrical, reflective and subdued tones. The open and curious listener will be taken on a journey through the emotional register ranging from joy of life to melancholy.

Det her er sådan en slags triojazz, hvor hvert enkelt medlem spiller sammen på livet løs, og hvor der improviseres og tages chancer. Disse tre fantastiske musikere favner alt fra det bevægende swing til det lyriske, reflekterede og afdæmpede. Den åbne og nysgerrige lytter vil blive taget med på en historiefortælling i et følelsesregister helt fra livsglæde til vemod.

Bollani/Bodilsen/Lund

“Premium” is Montmartre’s series of rare intimate concerts with jazz giants that you cannot normally meet on small intimate stages. These concerts are priced above the normal tickets to cover costs and travel for these heavy-weights.
Stefano Bollani (Piano / IT)Jesper Bodilsen (Bass / DK)Morten Lund (Drums / DK)

The concept of telepathic interaction fits perfectly with this trio. Here is three musicians who think and react the same and therefore constantly challenge and play with each other.

Bollani's almost supernatural technique and solid insight into all genres are the trio's natural centerpiece; it is from Bollani that most initiatives come. But as soon as the signal is sent from the piano chair, the two Danes are ready to enter the conversation, and from here music outbursts wave in an eternally entertaining and constantly challenging, but never predictable stream.

Stylistically, this is a "classic" jazz piano setup, but the gentlemen Bollani/Bodilsen/Lund have carried the format to a gifted and sparkling level musically. Peter H. Larsen wrote in a review: “(…) the interaction with the two Danes has reached a nirvana point that is completely original - an expression I dare to compare with what Keith Jarrett has achieved with Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette ..."

Begrebet telepatisk samspil passer perfekt til denne trio. Her har vi tre musikere, der tænker og reagerer ens og derfor konstant udfordrer og leger med hinanden - vel at mærke uden at det går hen og bliver pjattet.

Bollanis nærmest overjordiske teknik og solide indsigt i alle genrer er trioens naturlige midtpunkt; det er fra Bollani, de fleste initiativer kommer. Men så snart signalet er afsendt fra klaverstolen, står de to danskere klar til at gå ind i samtalen, og herfra bølger indfald og udfald i en evigt underholdende og konstant udfordrende, men aldrig forudsigelig strøm.

Stilistisk er vi henne i det ”klassiske” jazzklaver-setup, men d’herrer Bollani/Bodilsen/Lund har ført formatet begavet og gnistrende musikalsk videre. Peter H. Larsen skrev i en anmeldelse: ”(…) samspillet med de 2 danskere nu har nået et nirvanask punkt, der er helt originalt - et udtryk jeg godt tør sammenligne med det Keith Jarrett har nået med Gary Peacock og Jack DeJohnette...”

Jan Lundgren Trio ft. LaGaylia Frazier: Kind of Christmas

“Premium” is Montmartre’s series of rare intimate concerts with jazz giants that you cannot normally meet on small intimate stages. These concerts are priced above the normal tickets to cover costs and travel for these heavy-weights.
LaGaylia Frazier (Vocal / US)Jan Lundgren (Piano / SE)Mattias Svensson (Bass / SE)Zoltán Csörsz (Drums / SE)

For this year's Christmas concerts at Montmartre, Jan Lundgren Trio meets with singer LaGaylia Frazier. On stage, they will explore and combine the diverse emotions of jazz and the intense warmth of the soul with the very special Christmas atmosphere.

LaGaylia Frazier started her musical career within the classical genre before her grand, personal jazz vocal was discovered and she made her made her entry to the American jazz scene. Afterwards, she moved to Sweden and has since then managed to establish herself as a treasured crowd favorite with her phenomenal voice and bubbling stage personality.

The exquisite and dearly beloved Jan Lundgren Trio has played together for more than 20 years and has shared the stage with LaGaylia in connection with a wide range of critically acclaimed concerts. The musical motive force is within a shared curiosity in each other’s music and starting point in terms of genre, which they continually manage to take to a new level.

Til årets julekoncerter på Montmartre mødes Jan Lundgren Trio i et musikalsk samarbejde med sangeren LaGaylia Frazier. På scenen vil de udforske og kombinere jazzens mangeartede følelser og soulens intense varme med den helt specielle julestemning.

La Gaylia Frazier startede sin musikalske karriere inden for den klassiske genre, inden hendes store, personlige jazzvokal blev opdaget, hvorefter hun gjorde sit indtog på den amerikanske jazzscene. Efterfølgende flyttede hun til Sverige, og hun har siden da formået at etablere sig som en skattet publikumsfavorit med sin fænomenale stemme og sprudlende scenepersonlighed.

Den forrygende og højtelskede Jan Lundgren Trio har mere end 20 års samspil bag sig og har ligeledes delt scenen med LaGaylia i forbindelse med en lang række anmelderroste koncerter. Den musikalske drivkraft hos de to ligger i en fælles nysgerrighed i hinandens musik og genremæssige udgangspunkt, som de fortsat formår at hæve til nye niveauer.
