Kuba Więcek Trio

“Upcoming” is Montmartre’s series of talent concerts where upcoming artists test the boundaries of jazz.
Kuba Wiecek (Alto/Soprano Sax / PL)Michal Baranski (Bass/Electric Bass)Lukasz Zyta (Drums/Glockenspiel)

After living in Copenhagen for 3 years, Kuba Więcek moved to Warsaw, where he founded his own group made of the finest musicians in Poland; Michał Barański and Łukasz Żyta. Soon after, they recorded their debut album which was released by Warner Music as part of the legendary „Polish Jazz” series. This was the first release in the series in 28 years! The album brought a lot of attention to the group, and as a result they have played on several big festivals throughout Europe. They got some important awards like Fryderyk (Polish Grammy) and Mateusz (Polish Radio Award). Kuba Więcek and his trio were featured in the latest issue of Downbeat magazine on the page dedicated to European jazz:

"Any perceived shortcomings, though, easily were washed away as the Kuba Więcek Trio, led by its namesake saxophonist, gamboled through inventive compositions, aiming at various times to mimic a glockenspiel or solidify whatever it currently means to be a new-millennium Euro-based ensemble indebted to jazz’s history and pop music’s populism." - Downbeat Magazine (USA) at Jazzahead! 2018.

Tickets only sold in the door. 100DKK/50DKK for students and under 26.

Efter at have boet i København i 3 år er Kuba Więcek flyttet tilbage til hans hjemby Warszawa, hvor han har dannet en trio med to af de bedste musikere i Polen; Michał Barański og Łukasz Żyta. I 2017 udgav de deres debutplade "Another Raindrop" på Warner Music's legendariske "Polish Jazz"-serie. Albummet har vakt meget interessere hos presse og publikum, og siden udgivelsen har de spillet på store festivaler i hele Europa, vundet flere priser og fået overordentlig positiv omtale i selveste Downbeat Magazine!

Marialy Pacheco & Rhani Krija: Marocuba

“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.
Marialy Pacheco (Piano / CU)Rhani Krija (Drums/Percussion / MA)

The stations in the career of Cuban pianist Marialy Pacheco are impressive: her debut album was produced by Roberto Fonseca, pianist of the legendary Ibrahim Ferrer (Buena Vista Social Club) and in 2012 she became the first woman to ever win the Montreux Jazzfestival Solo Piano Competition. Percussionist and drummer Rhani Krija was born in Morocco and is currently one of the world’s most renowned percussionists - in the jazz & world music scene, as well as in the rock & pop scene. As a teenager, he emerged himself in the traditional music styles of northern Africa, which still today, form the foundation of his music and style of playing. With the musically diverse range he possesses, Krija has the ability to play almost any style with authenticity In the summer of 2013, Rhani Krija meet Marialy Pacheco for the first time and both musicians got along instantly - personally and musically. Together they have created “Marocuba”, a unique and fresh sound that arises in a mix of traditional Cuban music, afro-Moroccan rhythms and contemporary European jazz.

Cubanske Marialy Pachecos karriere er allerede ganske bemærkelsesværdig. Hendes debutalbum blev produceret af Roberto Fonseca, pianist for legendariske Ibrahim Ferrer (Buena Vista Social Club), og i 2012 blev hun den første kvindelige vinder af Montreux Jazzfestival Solo Piano Competition. Rhani Krija fra Marokko har for alvor indtaget jazz- og folkscenen, mens han alsidigt også har bevæget sig ind i genrene rock og pop. I ungdomsårene dannede den traditionelle Nordafrikanske musik bunden for hans musikalske stil, sidenhen har han udviklet evnerne til at spille de fleste stilarter autentisk. Pacheco og Krija mødte hinanden i sommeren 2013 og blev hurtigt venner – både personligt og musikalsk. Sammen har de nu skabt ”Marocuba”; en unik og frisk lyd, der opstår i et mix af traditionel cubansk musik, afro-marokkanske rytmer og kontemporær europæisk jazz.

Jeff Hamilton Trio

“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.
Jeff Hamilton (Drums / US)Tamir Hendelman (Piano / IL)Jon Hamar (Bass / US)

Jeff Hamilton's world-class drumming is characterized by being super swinging, very melodically performed with a touch, timing and a creativeness that one only experiences when a top of the line star occupies the scene. He is considered to be the most swinging drummer by many, and his CV clearly states that he is sought after by the big jazz icons. In 1977, he became a member of the Woody Hermans Orchestra, and from there recordings and tours all over the world started. L.A. Four, Ella Fitzgerald, Ray Brown, Monty Alexander, Count Basie Orchestra and not the least Oscar Peterson, whose group he was a regular member of for 5 years, and Natalie Cole, where Hamilton contributed to the two Grammy winning releases "Unforgettable" and "Still Unforgettable". With him in the trio, Hamilton has the Israeli pianist Tamir Hendelman and countryman Christoph Luty on bass. Both musicians live in Los Angeles with impressive careers. The three of them really makes the trio format shine bright when they meet on stage!

Jeff Hamiltons verdensklasse trommespil er kendetegnet ved at være super swingende, meget melodisk udført med et touch, timing og en idérigdom, som man kun oplever, når en stjerne fra jazzens øverste hylde indtager scenen. Af mange anses han for at være den mest swingende trommeslager, og hans CV bevidner klart og tydeligt, at han er eftertragtet af de store jazzikoner. I 1977 blev han medlem af Woody Hermans Orchestra, og derfra gik det løs med indspilninger og turnéer over hele verden med bl.a. L.A. Four, Ella Fitzgerald, Ray Brown, Monty Alexander, Count Basie Orchestra og ikke mindst Oscar Peterson, i hvis gruppe han var fast medlem af i 5 år, og Natalie Cole, hvor Hamilton medvirker på de to Grammy-vindende udgivelser ”Unforgettable” og ”Still Unforgettable”. Med sig i trioen har Hamilton den israelske pianist Tamir Hendelman og landsmanden Christoph Luty på bass. Begge musikere er bosiddende i Los Angeles med imponerende karrierer. Trio-formatet får virkelige lov at skinne igennem, når de tre mødes på scenen!

Seamus Blake/Jesse van Ruller

“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.
Jesse van Ruller (Guitar / NL)Seamus Blake (Tenor Sax / UK)Daniel Franck (Bass / SE)Ivars Arutyunyan (Drums / HU)

New York based saxophonist/composer Seamus Blake is recognized as a fine exponent of contemporary jazz and has been praised by John Scofield, who hired Blake for his "Quiet Band," and called him "extraordinary, a total saxophonist." Jesse Van Ruller is being praised for his bright, fluent guitar playing by fellow colleagues such as Pat Metheny, Jim Hall, and like Seamus Blake, by John Scofield. Here at Jazzhus Montmartre we are excited to present a brand-new collective consisting of some of the most celebrated improvisers on the international jazz scene right now. After playing together in various projects and constellations, Seamus Blake, Jesse Van Ruller, Daniel Franck and Ivars Arutyunyan decided to unite in one powerful collective to create a strong and unique musical statement by performing both original music and songs that they love.

Den New York baserede saxofonist og komponist Seamus Blake er anset som en særdeles fin eksponent for moderne jazz, og han er blandt andet blevet hyldet af John Scofield, der hyrede Blake til hans "Quiet Band" og kaldte ham "extraordinary, a total saxophonist." Jesse van Ruller har ligeledes modtaget international anerkendelse for hans lette, lysende og flydende guitarspil, og store navne som Pat Metheny, Jim Hall og John Scofield har tilkendegivet deres respekt for den virtuose hollænder. Denne aften er vi beærede over at kunne præsentere en helt ny konstellation af anderkendte improvisatører på den internationale jazzscene. Efter at have spillet sammen i forskellige projekter valgte Seasmus Blake, Jesse Van Ruller, Daniel Franck og Ivars Arutyunyan at forene kræfter i et stærkt kollektiv med det formål at skabe et unikt musikalsk statement med både original musik og numre, de elsker.

Marie Dahlstrøm

Marie Dahlstrøm (Vocal / DK)Mafro Waters (Guitar / UK)Jay Asafo (Bass / UK)Dandiggas (Keyboards / UK)Mickel Boswell (Drums / UK)Joshua Boswell (Vocal / UK)Jasmine Bourner (Vocal / UK)Liselotte Östblom (Vocal / SE)

Hailing from Roskilde, Denmark, Marie Dahlstrøm quickly became known for an output of beautifully crafted Jazz flavored RnB since she moved to London in 2010. Her eclectic and refreshing take on the genre has won her fans across the globe. The real joy of Marie Dahlstrøm’s music is that it seems to do so many things at once without ever seeming to do anything much at all, which is the epitome of gracefulness. It consists of wonderful layers of smooth harmony and infectiously sultry soulness. In July she release the EP “Kanel”, which is the Danish word for Cinnamon. The EP, produced by JNTHN STEIN was recorded in one week in Corsica.The intense yet rewarding session meant that they could get away from any distractions and focus solely on recording. The result is five soulful tracks with chorus hooks, where soul/jazz inspired instrumentale arrangements get to flourish in electronic beats and samples – while Dahlstrøm’s vocals is as beautiful as ever.

”It isn’t too much to say that ‘Kanel’ is a gorgeous collection of songs and indeed perfect for wine and dancing…and chilling, and socializing, and listening to on your own, as night time lullabies and as music to start the day to, to party to and to wind down too…in fact I can’t think of a single moment of your day when putting this record on wouldn’t enhance the moment beyond measure.” – Scandinaviansoul.com.

Marie Dahlstrøm kommer oprindeligt fra Roskilde, men flyttede i 2010 til London, hvor hun hurtigt blev kendt for sit output af smukt udformet jazz-inspireret RnB. Fans fra hele verden er blevet fortryllet af hendes eklektiske og fornyende tilgang til genren. Hendes musik synes at skabe en yndefuldhed ved at bestå af en helt masse, men samtidig lyde ganske enkelt, hvilket skyldes de mange lag af bløde harmonier og smittende lyrik. I juli udgav hun EP’en ”Kanel”, som blev optaget på kun en uge i Korsica med produceren JNTHN STEIN. Det intense afbræk fra distraktioner har resulteret i fem sjælfulde numre med stærke hooks, hvor soul/jazz inspirerede instrumentale arrangementer får lov til at blomstre i elektroniske beats og samples – alt imens at hendes skønne vokal stråler igennem.

FOLK: Trio Svin

Thyge Van Dassen (violin / DK)Søren Røgen (guitar / DK)Magnus Heebøll (percussion / DK)

As a resistance movement to ‘beautiful nordic folk music’ Trio Svin are fighting a brave battle to make the world a little uglier one concert at a time. Like scratching a mosquito bite or walking with a stone in your shoe that is annoying in just the right way – Trio Svin makes you think: “how can something so wrong, feel so right.” Catharsis in folk music form!

Som en modstandsbevægelse til den ‘smukke nordiske folkemusik’ kæmper Trio Svin en brag kamp om at gøre verden til et lidt grimmere sted én koncert af gangen. Som at kradse et myggestik, eller gå med en sten i skoen, der gør ondt på den gode måde, føles Trio Svin bare fantastisk, selvom det er lidt forbudt at elske dem. Katharsis i folkemusikform!

Toninho Horta ft. Piero Odorici: Tribute to Getz & Jobim

“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.
Toninho Horta (Guitar/Vocal / BR)Piero Odorici (Tenor Sax / IT)Gilson Silveira (Drums/Perc / BR)

TRIBUTE TO GETZ & JOBIM

Toninho Horta og Piero Odorici hylder med dette project Antônio Carlos Jobim, den vigtigste eksponent og komponist i genren bossanova, og Stan Getz, der især har repræsenteret og fortolket Jobims kompositioner på sin saxofon. Repertoiret til koncerterne består primært af Jobims kompositioner lige såvel som originale numre af Horta og verdenskendte standarder. Horta har gennem tiden vist sig som en indflydelsesrig guitarist og komponist på sine 10 solo udgivelser, hvor bl.a. Pat Metheny, Naná Vasconcelos og Eliane Elias har været med. Samtidig har han fra en ganske tidlig alder været en yderst eftertragtet akkompagnatør hos både brasilianske og internationale jazzstjerner. Piero Odorici startede sin musikalske liv i studierne af klassisk musik, men det endte med at blive jazzen, som han fordybede sig i. I hans karriere har han ledet eller medvirket i flere store italienske og internationale grupper og spillet Europa og USA tyndt. Vi er ikke et sekund i tvivl om, at de to, sammen med Gilson Silveira, vil fremføre bossa novaens rytmer og harmonier på en måde, som vil sende os alle mod varmere himmelstrøg.

TRIBUTE TO GETZ & JOBIM

Toninho Horta and Piero Odorici with this new project want to tribute Antônio Carlos Jobim the most important exponent and composer of the genre Bossa nova and the great Stan Getz the most representative saxophonist and interpreter of the compositions of Jobim. The repertoire consists primarily of the compositions of Jobim as well as original pieces of Horta and famous Jazz standards giving rise to harmonies and phrases decidedly appealing. Horta has proven himself as an influential guitarist and composer with 10 solo releases, with special guests such as Pat Metheny, Naná Vasconcelos and Eliane Elias. From a very early age, he has been a highly sought after accompanist for both Brazilian and international jazz stars. Piero Odorici started his musical life in studies of classical music, but it ended up becoming the jazz in which he immersed himself. In his career, he has led or participated in several major Italian and international groups and played all over Europe and USA. With Gilson Silveira, they will send us all to warmer lands with the rhythms and harmonies of the Bossa nova.

Steve Kuhn Trio

“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.
Steve Kuhn (Piano / US)Aidan O'Donnell (Bass / UK)Billy Drummond (Drums / US)

After a career of a half-century, Steve Kuhn has earned renown as a lyrical and affecting pianists, with an unfailingly beautiful touch and a sophisticated sense of swing. JAZZIZ Magazine has described Kuhn’s distinctive sound: “Few other pianists, regardless of genre, can tease such an evocative range of timbres from their instrument. Kuhn’s lower register is as dark and rich as Belgian chocolate, and his upper register has the light, translucent quality of ice-cold champagne.” As a composer, Kuhn’s songbook is one of quality rather than quantity. He has revisited many pieces repeatedly over the years, revealing their depth anew with each fresh interpretation, like gems held up to different light. This time Kuhn visits Montmartre with his trio consisting of Aidan O’Donnell on bass and Billy Drummond on drums and we are looking forward to seeing Steve Kuhn knock himself out in his favored trio format.

Efter mere end et halvt århundredes lang karriere er Steve Kuhn blevet anerkendt som en lyrisk og bevægende pianist med et smukt touch og en sofistikeret fornemmelse for swing. JAZZIZ Magazine har beskrevet Kuhns lyd således: “Few other pianists, regardless of genre, can tease such an evocative range of timbres from their instrument. Kuhn’s lower register is as dark and rich as Belgian chocolate, and his upper register has the light, translucent quality of ice-cold champagne.” Som komponist er Kuhns bagkatalog bundet op på kvalitet snarere end kvantitet. Han har genbesøgt mange af hans værker gentagne gange gennem årene og har for hver ny fortolkning afsløret nye og hidtil ukendte lag. Denne gang besøger Kuhn Montmartre med sin trio bestående af Aidan O’ Donnell på bas og Billy Drummond ved trommerne, og vi glæder os enormt til at se Steve Kuhn slå sig løs med sin favorit trio.

Jacob Young Quintet: Forever Young

“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.
Jacob Young (Guitar / NO)Trygve Seim (Tenor Sax / NO)Marcin Wasilewski (Piano / PL)Slawomir Kurkiewicz (Bass / PL)Michael Misklewicz (Drums / PL)

On Jacob Young's third ECM release he introduced a new quintet, in which he is joined by Trygve Seim and all three members of the Marcin Wasilewski Trio. As a composer, Young keeps his heart on display, balancing buoyant melodic lines with a slight touch of melancholy that suits the Polish rhythm section perfectly. There's a slow, deliberate approach to storytelling that is distinctly European. Young and Seim have known each other since they were, respectively, 17 and 16, and attending the same Norwegian music high school. This long-time partnership clearly shows when Seim is moving in breathy unison with Young's dark, organic acoustic tone. Seim has a presence and mood-setting ability that alludes to fellow Nordic saxophonist Jan Garberek. There's a multilayered delicacy to the music and performance of this quintet.

På Jacob Youngs tredje ECM-udgivelse introducerede han en ny kvintet, hvor han blev tilsluttet af saxofonisten Trygve Seim og alle tre medlemmer af Marcin Wasilewski Trio. Som komponist sænker Young paraderne, viser sit hjerte frem og balancerer flydende mellem melodiske linjer med et lille strejf af melankoli, der passer perfekt til den polske rytmesektion. Der er en langsom og fri tilgang til historiefortællingen. Young og Seim har kendt hinanden, siden de var henholdsvis 17 og 16, hvor de gik i samme norske musikhøjskole. Dette langtidspartnerskab ses tydeligt, når Seim bevæger sig i svævende samhørighed med Youngs mørke, organiske akustiske tone. Seim har en stemningssættende tilstedeværelse, der minder om landsmanden og saxofonisten Jan Garberek. Der er en flerlags delikatesse i denne kvintets musik og optræden.

Stereolog #1

“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.
Anja C. Andersen (Astrophysicist / DK)Ole Fogh Kirkeby (Philosopher / DK)Tao Højgaard (Guitar / DK)Kristor Brødsgaard (Bass / DK)

One of jazz's more playful and innovative characters, guitarist Tao Højgaard, drops saxophones and trumpets, and instead uses scientists as melodic carriers in a new concert form at Jazzhus Montmartre. Tao Højgaard has invited two of the most recognized scientific voices, astrophysicist Anja C. Andersen and philosopher Ole Fogh Kirkeby, to be soloists in a different concert form, under his alter ego Mute State. A concert form where a conversation between two scientists is made conductor in the music. The music becomes an abstract host which through sound structures, dynamic shifts and harmonious artifacts, divides the scientists' conversation into mood chapters.

Both musicians and professors will relate to the subject "Spirit and Structure", a topic that has a huge impact not just for art and science but for people in general. Anja C. Andersen is an astronomer and astrophysicist at the Niels Bohr Institute and a very active communicator of astronomical research. Ole Fogh Kirkeby is a philosopher, leadership theorist, author and professor at CBS. Therefore, this becomes not just a meeting between music and dialogue, but also a meeting between paradigms of both social and natural science.

En af jazzens mere legesyge og innovative skikkelser, guitaristen Tao Højgaard, sløjfer saxofoner og trompeter, og bruger i stedet videnskabsfolk som melodibærere i ny koncertform på Jazzhus Montmartre. Tao Højgaard har, under sit alter ego Mute State, indbudt to af tidens mest anerkendte videnskabelige stemmer, astrofysiker Anja C. Andersen og filosof Ole Fogh Kirkeby til at være solister i en anderledes koncertform. En koncertform, hvor en samtale imellem to videnskabsfolk gøres til melodistemme og dirigent i musikken. Musikken bliver en abstrakt vært og ordfører, der via lydlige strukturer, dynamiske skift og harmoniske kunstgreb inddeler videnskabsfolkenes samtale i stemningsmæssige kapitler.

Både musikere og professorer vil forholde sig til emnet ”Ånd og Struktur”, et emne, der har en enorm betydning, ikke bare for kunst og videnskab, men for mennesker helt generelt. Anja C. Andersen er astronom og astrofysiker ved Niels Bohr Instituttet og en meget aktiv formidler af astronomisk forskning. Ole Fogh Kirkeby er filosof, ledelsesteoretiker, forfatter og professor ved CBS. Dette bliver dermed ikke kun et møde mellem musik og dialog, men også et møde mellem natur- og samfundsvidenskabelige paradigmer.

Kenneth Dahl Knudsen Quintet: Album Release

“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.
Kenneth Dahl Knudsen (Bass / DK)Magnus Thuelund (Sax / DK)Brian Massaka (Guitar / PL)William Larsson (Piano / SE)Daniel Sommer (Drums / DK)

The Danish jazzmusician, composer, arranger and bandleader, Kenneth Dahl Knudsen, is an internationally in demand sideman due to his intuitive virtuosity on double bass, a mastery that led him to work with names like John Scofield or Aaron Parks. The release of his fourth album “Tété” sees him stepping into the limelight as a composer and bandleader of his international quintet. Musical influences from all over the world come together with a naturalness that implies Knudsen has the formula for successfully translating the fundamental idea of jazz into the age of globalisation. As a bandleader, he manages to unite all the experiences he made on his recent journey through 33 countries and tie them all up into one impressive complete work. Backed by the blindly intuitive interplay of his quintet Knudsen combines harmonies of the European music tradition with the playful rhythms of Africa and Latin America as well as the expressiveness of Jewish folksongs as if they belonged together naturally, sounding like no one else but himself.

Musikeren, komponisten, arrangøren og bandlederen Kenneth Dahl Knudsen er en internationalt efterspurgt sideman grundet hans intuitive virtuositet på kontrabassen. Hans evner har ført ham til samarbejde med musikere som John Scofield og Aaron Parks. På sin fjerde udgivelse ”Tété” træder han for alvor ind i rollen som komponist og bandleder med sin internationale kvintet. Musikalske indflydelser fra hele verden flettes ganske naturligt sammen og danner en fremvisning af Knudsens egenskab til succesfuldt at oversætte og fortolke de fundamentale idéer i jazzen i en globaliseret verden. Som bandleder formår han at forene sine oplevelser fra sin rejse gennem 33 lande og samle dem til et smukt sammenhængene værk. Kvintetten har et helt intuitivt samspil, og med Knudsen i front kombinerer de harmonier fra den europæiske tradition med folkemusikken og de legesyge rytmer fra Afrika og Latinamerika, helt som hvis de passede naturligt sammen.

Selvom Sinne Eeg har optrådt verden over og p.t. er bosiddende i USA, så har hun holdt solidt fast i sit skandinaviske udtryk. Hendes musik er moderne og nordisk i tonen, men med klare referencer til legendariske jazzsangerinder som Nancy Wilson og Betty Carter. Hendes koncerter kendetegnes ved stort nærvær, humor, charmerende sceneoptræden og et enormt musikalsk overskud, som bl.a. kommer til udtryk ved, at der tages chancer på scenen.

Sinne Eeg/Thomas Fonnesbæk

“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.
Sinne Eeg (Vocal / DK)Thomas Fonnesbæk (Bass / DK)

Sinne Eeg is here to stay, and for good reason. Her talent is beyond belief and her voice sounds like a choir of angels. After two evenings with Sinne Eeg Group, it?s time for Eeg and Fonnesbæk to present their amazing duo constellation. Danish bassists occupy a special position on the international jazz scene. Through NHØP, Mads Vinding, Bo Stief and Jesper Lundgaard, we have created a strong international bass brand. And this brand is being carried on today by a host of splendid bass players. One of the most remarkable names is Thomas Fonnesbæk, who plays with a technical surplus and a melodic sensibility that hasn't been heard since NHØP. Eeg and Fonnesbæk have a completely unique interplay and understanding of each other?s sound, and they do indeed take the meeting of vocal and bass to new heights!

Sinne Eeg er kommet for at blive, og det er af gode grunde, for hendes stemme er som sendt fra himmelen. Efter 2 aftener med Sinne Eeg Group skifter vi ud i line-up og sender mesterlige Thomas Fonnesbæk ind på scenen. Danske bassister har en særlig stjerne på den internationale jazzhimmel. Med NHØP, Mads Vinding, Bo Stief og Jesper Lundgaard i spidsen har Danmark skab sig et varemærke, som stadig vækker opsigt både herhjemme, men i særdeleshed også i udlandet. Og det danske varemærke holdes stadig i hævd af en stribe yngre, strålende bassister. En af de mest bemærkelsesværdige skikkelser er Thomas Fonnesbæk, som spiller med et teknisk overskud og en melodisk åre, som ikke er hørt siden NHØP. Eeg og Fonnesbæk har et helt unikt samspil og intern forståelse, som virkelig tager mødet mellem vokal og bas til nye højder.

Gauthier Toux Trio

“Upcoming” is Montmartre’s series of talent concerts where upcoming artists test the boundaries of jazz.
Gauthier Toux (Piano / FR)Simon Tailleu (Bass / FR)Maxence Sibille (Drums / FR)

With his third album “The colours you see” (out on UK label Naim Records on May 4th – a label home to Yazz Ahmed, Sons of Kemet…) as the leader of his trio, pianist Gauthier Toux has tried to highlight his very personal approach to colours. Ever since he was discovered to be colour-blind, he has never ceased to wonder about alternative ways in which they can be perceived, venturing beyond the names assigned to each of them. Each new composition is like the setting to music of anecdotes which relate me to these lights and shades.

Formed in October 2013, the Gauthier Toux Trio brings together three young exponents from the European jazz scene. All three are enthusiasts of the jazz tradition, but are also into electronic music, rock, hip-hop - they are on the same page both personally and musically.

After almost four years playing and travelling together and two albums, More than Ever (2015) and Unexpected Things (2016, NoMadMusic), both critically acclaimed (France Musique’s Choix award, ‘Albums of the month’ selection in Les Inrocks, April 2016, TSF Jazz radio, FIP’s ‘Club Jazz’) there is a sense of brotherhood and unity about these three musicians which manifests itself in music whose key quality is its sincerity.

The Gauthier Toux Trio won prizes at the 2016 Jazz à La Défense national competition, the 2016 Jazz Or Jazz competition, and Jazz à Vienne’s RéZZo Focal in 2017.

Upcoming får denne aften besøg fra Frankrig, når den prisvindende pianist Gauthier Toux spiller med sin trio igennem fem år. Trioen har to højt anmelderroste albums bag sig, og i maj måned udgav de det tredje album "The Colours You See" (udgivet på engelske Naim Records, som bl.a. udgiver Sons of Kemet).

Trioen består af tre unge eksponenter fra den europæiske jazz scene. Alle tre er dybt forankret i jazz traditionen, men henter også inspiration fra electronica, rock, hip-hop og meget andet.

Mest iørefaldende ved trioen er deres sublime sammenspil og den originale, moderne kompositionsstil. Vi glæder os til at præsentere dem!

Trine Lunau (sang, harmonika / DK)Peter Sund (sang, guitar / DK)Palle Hjort (klaver, keyboards / DK)

Writing simple songs is a hard art to master and at the moment very few songwriters in Denmark do this as well as Lunau&Sund. They have created a sound for themselves mixing americana with the danish song-tradition, and after 17 years as a duo they have ascended their interplay to beautiful heights. For this concert they are bringing keyboard wizard Palle Hjort with them, who is known as one of the most sought after musicians in all of Denmark.

At skrive stærke enkle sange er en særlig kunstart, og for tiden er der få på sangskriver scenen i Danmark, der gør dette ligeså godt som duoen Lunau&Sund. Deres lyd er en smuk blanding af americana og den danske sang- og visetradition og efter 17 år som duo har de opnået et sammenspil i særklasse. Med sig til koncerten på Montmartre tager de tangent-troldmanden Palle Hjort med sig, der bl.a. spiller med Savage Rose og Peter Sommer.

Sheila Jordan & Cameron Brown

“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.
Sheila Jordan (Vocal / US)Cameron Brown (Bass / US)

Jordan began singing as a child and by the time she was in her early teens was working semi-professionally in Detroit clubs. Her first great influence was Charlie Parker and, indeed, most of her influences have been instrumentalists rather than singers. She moved to New York in the early 50s, but it was not until the early 60s that she made her first recordings. She presented a uncompromising style and has through the years developed her unique musical trademarks, such as the frequent and unexpected sweeping changes of pitch, which still tend to confound an uninitiated audience. Her preference to the bass and voice set led to a remarkable collaboration with bassist Cameron Brown, whom she has been performing with all over the world for more than twenty years so far and they have released the live albums “I’ve Grown Accustomed to the Bass” and “Celebration”. Entirely non-derivative, Jordan is one of only a tiny handful of jazz singers who fully deserve the appellation and for whom no other term will do.

Jordan begyndte at synge som barn, og allerede da hun var i de tidlige teenage-år, arbejdede hun semi-professionelt på klubberne i Detroit. Hendes første store indflydelse var Charlie Parker og faktisk har de fleste af hendes indflydelser været instrumentalister fremfor sangere. Hun flyttede til New York i begyndelsen af 50’erne, men det var først i begyndelsen af 60’erne, at hun foretog sine første indspilninger. Hun præsenterede en kompromisløs stil og har gennem årene udviklet sit helt unikke musikalske varemærke. Det er bl.a. de hyppige og uventede ændringer i tonen, som stadig forbløffer publikum. Hendes præference til samspillet mellem bass og vokal førte til et bemærkelsesværdigt samarbejde med bassisten Cameron Brown. Sammen har de turneret verden rundt i mere end tyve år, og de har udgivet albummene “I’ve Grown Accustomed to the Bass” og “Celebration”. Jordan er en af kun en lille håndfuld jazz sangere, som virkelig fortjener at blive omtalt som en af de største!

Takykardia

Luna Matz (Vocal / DK)David Nedergaard (Keys / DK)Troels Dankert (Drums / DK)Pelle Lindsjö (Bass / SE)

The trip-soul group Takykardia, who has taken their name from the Finnish word for rapid heartbeat, presents a genre-breaking and playful universe with Luna Matz' seductive vocal in front. The pace is often slow, heavy and trip-hop like, sometimes interrupted by jazz-unpredictable rhythms. Their instrumental sound image has a beautiful contrast to Luna Matz' bright and playful vocal. The group met with different backgrounds in classical music, art punk, jazz and performance art and with a common fascination of trip-hop and a devotion to captivating aesthetics. In February 2018, they released their self-titled debut EP, which has been praised to the clouds of Danish and international blogs such as EARMILK, Noisey, Kaltblut Magazine, Dummy, HighClouds and Crack in the Road, which calls the EP: "A uniquely ambitious and massively exciting first step.” We look forward to leaning back into sensitive and imaginative musical dream sequences!

Trip-soul-gruppen Takykardia, der har hentet deres navn fra det finske ord for hurtig hjerterytme, præsenterer et genre-brydende og legesygt univers med Luna Matz forførende vokal i front. Tempoet er ofte slæbende, tungt og trip-hop lignende, som afbrydes af jazz-uforudsigelige rytmer. Deres instrumentale lydbillede får smukt modspil af Luna Matz lyse og legesyge vokal. Gruppen mødtes med forskellige baggrunde i klassisk musik, art-punk, jazz og performancekunst og med en fælles fascination af trip-hop og en hengivenhed for fængslende æstetik. I februar 2018 udgav de deres selv-betitlede debut-EP, som er blevet rost til skyerne af danske og internationale blogs som EARMILK, Noisey, Kaltblut Magazine, Dummy, HighClouds og Crack in the Road, som kalder EP’en: “A uniquely ambitious and massively exciting first step.” Vi glæder os til at læne os tilbage i følsomme og fantasifulde musikalske drømmesekvenser, når gruppen indtager Monten!

FOLK: Mynsterland

Henriette Ambæk Flach (violin / DK)Sofie Bollen (Violin / DK)Jonas Clausen (violin / DK)Gunver Lindeskov Søgaard (violin / DK)Lotte Wind (violin / DK)Justine Hald Boesen (accordion & vocal / DK)Maja Aarøe Freese (cello & vocal / DK)Martin Strange Lorenzen (clarinet / DK)Silje Waaler Pedersen (mandolin / DK)Michael Hornhaver Mortensen (guitar / DK)Sebastian Bloch (guitar / DK)Mathæus Bech (bass / DK)

Two years ago, Mynsterland played their debut concert in a completely packed Montmartre. Since then, they have established themselves as one of the most sought-after, ambitious and original bands on the Danish folk-scene. Even though their recent tour saw them visit some of the country’s bigger venues and concert halls, they have decided to play at Montmartre again, where it all started – despite the venue’s small size.

For 2 år siden debuterede Mynsterland med en totalt udsolgt koncert på Montmartre. Siden dengang har bandet etableret sig som et af de mest eftertragtede, ambitiøse og originale bands på den danske folkscene. Selvom deres seneste turné har bragt dem forbi nogle af landets større koncertsale og spillesteder, har de som noget ganske særligt valgt, at København-koncerten på den kommende turné skal være på Montmartre, hvor det hele begyndte – også selvom der kun er 80 pladser. Glæd jer til en aften hvor spilleglæden kommer til at flyde over i de små lokaler.
