Asja Valcic & Klaus Paier Duo: Timeless Suite

“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.
Asja Valcic (Cello)Klaus Paier (Accordion)

WINTERJAZZ

The combination accordion and cello is rarely heard. Here is the possibility to enjoy two leading instrumentalists in a close, intense and challenging interplay. Classical Masters like Bach and Stravinsky as well as Dave Brubeck, a master in Jazz, provides the material and the music is played with joy, originality and compassion by two young musicians with a big wish to make the music take off. And when the music swings like this, this concert may well be an eye-, and ear opener for members of the classical as well as the jazz clan.

VINTERJAZZ

Kombinationen harmonika og cello er kun sjældent hørt. Her er muligheden for at høre to af Europas førende på de to instrumenter i et tæt, intenst og udfordrende samspil. Klassiske mestre som Bach og Stravinsky og jazzens Dave Brubeck har leveret materialet, der spilles originalt og medrivende af to unge musikere med stor lyst og evne til at få musikken til at lette. Og når det så oven i købet swinger ret fedt, kan denne koncert sagtens gå hen og blive en øjen-, og øreåbner for medlemmer fra såvel den klassiske som den jazzede lejr.

Rigmor Gustafsson Quartet: Come Home

“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.
Rigmor Gustafsson (Vocal / SE)Jonas Östholm (Piano / SE)Martin Höper (Bass / SE)Chris Montgomery (Drums / SE)

WINTERJAZZ

If Swedish Jazz singers often seem a little more controlled than their Danish colleagues, Rigmor Gustafsson is one of the few who does not hold back, but really gets into the music. Gustafssons starting point can be described as “Jazz and whatever comes next…”, and from here she is inspired by great ladies like Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone, from songwriters like Burt Bacharach and from swinging Big City Blues. Her warm voice and excellent and flawless phrasing is 100 % pleasure to listen to. Rigmor Gustafsson could easily be the one taking over from legendary Swedish jazz singer Monica Zetterlund.

VINTERJAZZ

Hvor svenske jazzsangerinder er en smule mere kontrollerede end deres danske søstre, er Rigmor Gustafsson en af de få, der ikke holder sig tilbage, men går fuldt og helt ind i musikken. Med udgangspunkt i ”jazz og derefter...” henter Gustafsson inspirationer fra store ladies som Joni Mitchell, fra mester-sangskrivere som Burt Bacharach og ikke mindst fra swingende storby-blues. Gustafsson kan sagtens placere sig som Monica Zetterlunds arvtager. Hendes varme stemme og fejlfri og naturlige frasering er en udelt fornøjelse at lægge ører til.

“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.

1. set:

Laura Toxværd (Alto Sax / DK)Cæcilie Trier (Cello / DK)

2. set:

Jakob Davidsen (Piano / DK)Jesper Egelund (Bass / DK)Thomas Strønen (Drums / NO)

A new musical meeting between Laura Toxværd on alto sax and Cæcilie Trier on cello. Laura Toxværd’s original compositions written for this special occasion will be the point of departure for the duo’s sonic explorations. After a tour in New York and Chicago, where Toxværd’s graphic notated compositions were performed, Chicago Reader wrote: “She’s embraced her own form of graphic scoring - marked by variable uses of color, shape, written instructions, and conventional notation”. Cæcilie Trier is part of the Danish band Choir of Young Believers who has received gold for their album “This Is for the White in Your Eyes”. Trier explores corners of string player music and tries to look at classic music with new eyes.

Silence Trio 3 is the third trio in Jakob Davidsen’s “Silence Trio Series”, which is made in three releases with three different trios during three years. The three releases have peacefulness, precision and freedom of genre in common. They can be seen as both an assembled work or as three isolated statements. Pianist and composer Jakob Davidsen is a part of all three releases. Besides from him the works are enriched by people from both the classic and rhythmical scene. Silence Trio 3 consists of Jakob Davidsen, the Danish bass player Jesper Egelund, who is known for being a member of Figura Ensemble and the Norwegian drummer Thomas Strønen, who at the moment is breaking through on the international stage with his band Time is a Blind Guide.

Et nyt musikalsk møde mellem Laura Toxværd på altsax og Cæcilie Trier på cello. Laura Toxværds originale kompositioner, skrevet til denne særlige lejlighed, vil være afsættet for duoens soniske udforskninger. I forbindelse med en turné til New York og Chicago, hvor Toxværds grafisk noterede kompositioner blev opført, skrev Chicago Reader: “She’s embraced her own form of graphic scoring - marked by variable uses of color, shape, written instructions, and conventional notation”. Cæcilie Trier er en del af det danske band Choir of Young Believers, som bl.a. har modtaget guld for sit album “This Is for the White in Your Eyes”. Trier afsøger afkroge af strygermusikken og eksperimenterer ved at se på den klassiske musik med nye øjne.

Silence Trio 3 er den tredje trio i Jakob Davidsens “Silence Trio Series”, som er lavet i tre udgivelser med tre forskellige trioer henover 3 år. Fællestræk for de tre udgivelser er ro, stringens og genrefrihed. De kan ses både som et samlet værk og som tre enkeltstående udsagn. Pianisten og komponisten Jakob Davidsen, som b.la. har vundet DJBFAs hæderspris og tre Danish Music Awards, er en del af alle tre udgivelser, men ellers beriges de af folk fra både den klassiske og rytmiske lejr. Silence Trio 3 består af Jakob Davidsen, den danske bassist Jesper Egelund, der blandt andet er kendt for sit mangeårige medlemskab af Figura Ensemble, og den norske trommeslager Thomas Strønen, der lige nu er i gang med at få sit internationale gennembrud med sin egen internationale gruppe “Time is a Blind Guide”.

Marilyn Mazur Group

“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.
Marilyn Mazur (Drums/Percussion/Vocal / DK)Fredrik Lundin (Sax/Flute / DK)Krister Jonsson (Guitar / SE)Klavs Hovman (Bass / DK)

Marilyn Mazur has in recent years concentrated on her own original music and today unites compositions with concerts around the world with her different groups. In Marilyn Mazur Group she has gathered some of her closest musical friends: the energetic Swedish guitarist Krister Jonsson, who in recent years has been one of Marilyn's favorites, Klavs Hovman - her bass partner for more than 35 years, collecting the group with his secure groove, and Fredrik Lundin, one of Denmark's most stylish, distinctive and creative saxophonists, who recently held his 30th anniversary as an active player in the Scandinavian jazz scene. Marilyn Mazur plays poetic and multicolored groove-based music full of energetic and dramatic playing. She enjoys when the music changes between being telepathically sensitive and extremely powerful, and behind her percussions she weaves beautiful sounds and mysterious melodies. This is intense, present and melodic music, where communication and momentary inspiration are crucial to the direction of music.

Marilyn Mazur har de seneste år koncentreret sig om sin egen originale musik og forener i dag komposition med koncerter verden over med sine forskellige grupper. I Marilyn Mazur Group har hun samlet nogle af sine nærmeste musikalske venner: den energiladede svenske guitarist Krister Jonsson, der de sidste år har været en af Marilyns foretrukne, Klavs Hovman – hendes baspartner gennem mere end 35 år, der samler gruppen med sit sikre groove, og Fredrik Lundin, en af Danmarks mest stilsikre, markante og kreative saxofonister, der nyligt afholdte sit 30 års jubilæum som aktiv spiller på den skandinaviske jazzscene. Marilyn Mazur spiller poetisk og flerfarvet groove-baseret musik fuld af energisk og dramatisk spilleglæde. Hun nyder, når musikken skifter mellem at være telepatisk følsom og voldsomt kraftfuld, og bag sit slagtøj spinner hun et væveri af smukke klange og mystiske melodier. Det er intens, nærværende og melodisk musik, hvor kommunikationen og øjeblikkets inspiration er afgørende for, hvilken retning musikken går.

Geoffrey Keezer Trio feat. Gillian Margot

Geoffrey Keezer (Piano / US)Richie Goods (Bass / US)Jon Wikan (Drums / US)Gillian Margot (Vocal / CA)

American pianist Geoffrey Keezer arrives in Montmartre with great honors in his luggage. At 18 he already played piano with drummer-legend Art Blakey – and that requires skills to the max! Keezer received many GRAMMY-nominations, he composed music to films and tv-series, and is a well-respected musician back home in the US. We will meet Geoffrey Keezer with his own group, featuring young singer Gillian Margot, whose voice and charisma opens doors to a brilliant career in jazz, pop and/or musical. Fusion/rock-legend Sting says the following about Geoffrey Keezer: “In the universe of piano players that I have been ex-posed to over the years, Geoffrey has proved himself to be not only a superb technician and improviser, but also above and beyond this, a composer and conceptualist who can maintain the overall line and the DNA of the song in everything he plays. A musician’s musician.”

Pianist Geoffrey Keezer kommer til Montmartre med en hel del hæder i bagagen. Allerede som 18-årig sad han på klaverstolen hos Art Blakey – og så skal man kunne sin metier! Han har modtaget flere GRAMMY-nomineringer, har leveret musik til utallige film og tv-serier, og er en velrespekteret musiker i sit hjemland. Her hører vi Keezer med egen gruppe, der bl.a. tæller den fine sangerinde Gillian Margot, hvis stemme og udstråling lægger op til en stor karriere inden for jazz, pop og musical. Selveste Sting udtaler bl.a. dette om Geoffrey Keezer: “In the universe of piano players that I have been ex-posed to over the years, Geoffrey has proved himself to be not only a superb technician and improviser, but also above and beyond this, a composer and conceptualist who can maintain the overall line and the DNA of the song in everything he plays.

Lambert is a Swedish bassist and producer. His musical focal point lies within hip-hop, funk and fusionjazz with a lot of free improv. Niels Overgård from the Danish blog Jazznyt has stated the following about Lambert: "If the intelligent phenomenon Thundercat alias Stephen Bruner was from a small fishing village in Sweden instead of Los Angeles, his name would be Cassius Lambert." Lambert released his first solo record "Quote" at the age of 17. His international breakthrough came in 2018, when he released his second album "Symmetri" - a record that has made journalists around the world believe that he will be the next big Swedish jazz star. Cassius Lambert composes music with textures from jazz, contemporary classical music, zen-funk, rock and hip-hop and he will enter the stage with a seven-people strong orchestra, containing not one, but two drum sets, guest artists, musical surprises and a myriad of instruments and sounds. After an intense tour throughout Europe, Cassius Lambert is ready for Monten, which will be his first performance ever in Copenhagen.

Cassius Lambert er en svensk bassist og producer. Hans musikalske fokus ligger i hip-hop, funk og fusionsjazz med stor improvisationsfrihed.

Lambert udgav hans første solo-album "Quote" i en alder af 17. Hans internationale gennembrud kom i 2018, da han udgav sit andet album "Symmetri" - et album, der har overbevist journalister verden over om, at Lambert er den næste store svenske jazzstjerne. Lambert komponerer musik med teksturer fra jazz, klassisk musik, zen-funk, rock og hip-hop, og han vil indtage scenen med et syv-mands orkester, der ikke medbringer ét, men hele to trommesæt, gæsteartister, musiske overraskelser og et utal af instrumenter og toner.

Parker/Solborg/Bruun Mark Solborg has since 2012 worked together with the English saxophonist and international giant in the field of improvisation, Evan Parker. Together the two of them have worked with Herb Robertson, Mats Eilertsen, Peter Bruun a.o and have performed at e.g. Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and Copenhagen Jazzfestival. Their album “The Trees” from 2013 received international acknowledgement for its artistic integrity and brilliant interplay. Jazznyt wrote: I won’t hesitate to call it a highlight in Danish improjazz. ‘The Tress’ is some of the most spectacular work Solborg has achieved in his long carrier.” Parker and Solborg is now back in Copenhagen and is testing the intimate trio format with the brilliant drummer Peter Bruun.

Anderskov/AC/Høyer Brand new trio who are playing a repertoire from Bud Powell and Velvet Underground to Brahms and Fats Waller to Duke Ellington and Bloody Valentine as an acoustic piano trio. They had a euphoric debut this summer and will start recording this fall. AC and Høyer has played with Paul Motian, Sort Sol, Trentemøller and Bill Frisell and the talented pianist Jacob Anderskov has been hailed to "expand the sonic landscape of Danish Jazz". It is new and ancient, it is spiritual and intriguing, the trio sparks in this ensemble!

Stereolog #2: Billedligt Talt

Martin Bigum (Painter / DK)Torben Svendrup (Historian / DK)Tao Højgaard (Guitar/Electronics / DK)Kristor Brødsgaard (Bass / DK)

The second edition of Montmartre and jazz guitarist Tao Højgaards dialectical concert, "Stereolog", offers both historical insight and artistic life. Historian Torben Svendrup and painter Martin Bigum will enter into a sincere and candid discussion about being human through time and space - all accompanied by Tao Højgaard and Kristor Brødsgaards cinematic jazz music. Guitarist Tao Højgaard, being a playful and innovative musician, excludes saxophones and trumpets, and instead uses scientists and artists as melodic carriers. The music becomes an abstract host which through sound structures, dynamic shifts and harmonious artifacts, divides the participants' conversation into mood chapters.

Torben Svendrup has written more than 30 books about culture- and mentality history and succeeds, with his imparable knowledge and colorful sources, to provide us with insights that we did not know we needed. Multi-artist Martin Bigum is known for having the ability to include his audience in a fascinating universe in form of dynamic paintings, full of interpretations. Once again, "Stereolog" will provide you with a musical experience, where dialogue provides the framework. This Stereolog-session will for sure provoke both your thoughts and your feelings.

Anden udgave af Montmartre og jazzguitaristens Tao Højgaards dialektiske koncertform Stereolog byder på historisk indsigt og kunstnerisk liv. Historiker Torben Svendrup og billedkunstner Martin Bigum vil tale inderligt og ærligt med hinanden om dét at være menneske over tid og rum - alt sammen akkompagneret af Tao Højgaard og Kristor Brødsgaards filmiske jazzmusik. Guitarist Tao Højgaard er en af jazzens mere legesyge og innovative skikkelser, der sløjfer saxofoner og trompeter og i stedet bruger videnskabsfolk og kunstnere som melodibærere. Her bliver musikken en abstrakt vært og ordfører, der via lydlige strukturer, dynamiske skift og harmoniske kunstgreb inddeler de deltagende parters samtale i stemningsmæssige kapitler.

Torben Svendrup har skrevet mere end 30 bøger om kultur- og mentalitetshistorie og formår dermed med sin umådelige indsigt og farverige kilder at tilføre os ny viden, som vi ikke vidste, at vi behøvede. Ligeledes er multikunstner Martin Bigum kendt for at have evnen til at tage sit publikum med ind i et fascinerende drømmeunivers i form af dynamiske værker, der er fulde af fortolkningsmuligheder. Endnu engang vil Stereolog tage dig med på en musisk rejse, hvor dialog danner rammen. Der er her tale om en Stereolog-session, som helt sikkert vil få dig til at både tænke og mærke efter.

Carsten Dahl Trinity

“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.
Carsten Dahl (Piano / DK)Nils Bosse Davidsen (Bass / DK)Stefan Pasborg (Drums / DK)

Carsten, Nils and Stefan are reaching out for the essence of interplay and improvisation through well-known standard songs, that invites the three musicians into a field of innovation as playing composers and composing players.

"This constellation is my favourite one. It’s like one big contemplative collective breath of air, where the horizontal and vertical understanding between us, become one. A seldom experience in music in fact and an inquestionable obligation to serve the universal language of music to the audiens. Being a complete trinity in music" – Carsten Dahl.

Carsten, Nils og Stefan skaber sammen essensen af ​​interplay og improvisation gennem de berømte velkendte amerikanske standardsange. Der opstår et kraftfelt imellem de tre musikere af nyskabende interaktion via deres tilgang som spillende komponister og/eller komponerende musikere.

"Denne konstellation er min favorit. Den er som een stor kontemplativ kollektiv vejrtrækning, hvor den horisontale og vertikale forståelse imellem os bliver eet samlet åndedrag. En sjælden oplevelse i musik faktisk og en ubestridelig forpligtelse til at betjene det universelle sprog i musikken. At være en fuldstændig treenighed sammen i musikken" - Carsten Dahl.

Snekkestad/Kjærgaard Group consists of saxophonist Torben Snekkestad and pianist Søren Kjærgaard. Both have had a major influence on Nordic jazz/improv music and are recognized as huge talents within their musical field. Norwegian Snekkestad has experimented with everything from classical chamber music to solo performances in major symphony orchestras to free improv-jazz. With a vast knowledge about the musical language and an ear for intuitive improvisations, he masters the perfect compositions. Danish Kjærgaard is recognized for his ability to play with different approaches to the sound of music, which has resulted in a large discography, international collaborations and critically acclaimed albums. Snekkerstad and Kjærgaard have played together in several constellations throughout the years, but this will be their first performance as a duo!

Ericson/Thomas/Strid Trio consists of Sture Ericson (saxophone and clarinet), Pat Thomas (piano) and Raymond Strid (drums). The members of the trio are all former participants in different quartet-, improv- and even electronic music constellations. With Ericson/Thomas/Strid Trio, we are dealing with a group of musicians with very different backgrounds, and thus a huge amount of different talents, which results in amazing improvisations and a vast musical perspective. The trio emphasizes that attending their concerts must be a memorable experience and they hope that the audience would like to join them on their unpredictable journey.

Snekkestad/Kjærgaard Group består af Torben Snekkestad på saxofon og Søren Kjærgaard på klaver. De har begge haft stor indflydelse på nordisk jazz/impro/nymusik og er anerkendt som store talenter inden for deres musikalske felt. Norske Snekkestad har eksperimenteret med alt fra både klassisk kammermusik til solooptrædener i store symfoniorkestre til fri improvisations-jazz. Med en enorm viden om det musiske sprog og et øre for intuitive improvisationer formår han at fuldføre kompositioner til perfektion. Danske Kjærgaard er kendt for at lege med forskellige tilgange til lyden, hvilket har resulteret i en bred diskografi, internationale samarbejder og anmelderroste albums. Snekkestad og Kjærgaard har tidligere spillet sammen i forskellige konstellationer, men denne koncert vil være deres første som duo!

Ericson/Thomas/Strid Trio består af Sture Ericson på saxofon og klarinet, Pat Thomas på klaver og Raymond Strid på trommer. Trioens medlemmer har alle tidligere været en del af forskellige quartet-, improvisations- og endda elektroniske grupper. Med Ericson/Thomas/Strid Trio er der altså tale om en gruppe af musikere med meget forskellige baggrunde og dermed en enorm mængde forskelligt talent, hvilket resulterer i fede improvisationer og stort musisk perspektiv. Trioen lægger vægt på, at deres koncerter skal være en mindeværdig oplevelse, og de håber på, at publikum vil tage med dem på deres uforudsigelige rejse.

Jesper Thilo with Olivier Antunes

“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.
Jesper Thilo (Tenor Sax / DK)Olivier Antunes (Piano / DK)Thomas Fonnesbæk (Bass / DK)Janus Templeton (Drums / DK)

The internationally acclaimed saxophonist Jesper Thilo has since the early 1960s positioned himself as a colossal in both the Danish and European jazz landscape. As part of the Arnvid Meyers Orchestra, DR's Big Band and various ensembles of national and international character, Jesper Thilo has made a significant impression on Danish jazz and always guaranteed music on top of the scale. He was the first to receive the Ben Webster award in 1977. A prize that was awarded to Olivier Antunes in 1999. Thilo and Antunes began their telepathic collaboration in 1995, where the mere 22-year-old Olivier entered the big scene along with the already internationally recognized Thilo. The mentor and protegé relationship has resulted in musical sparks over the years. The combination of Thilo's hot, crisp and melodic saxophone with Antunes' youthful, potent and temperamental piano forms an exquisite cocktail that any jazz connoisseur will enjoy. Not least when they are accompanied by the two virtuosos; Thomas Fonnesbæk on bass and Janus Templeton on drums.

Den internationalt anerkendte saxofonist Jesper Thilo har siden starten af 1960’erne positioneret sig som en kolos i både det danske og europæiske jazzlandskab. Med sine skridt i Arnvid Meyers Orkester, DR’s Big Band samt diverse ensembler af national og international karakter har Jesper Thilo sat et markant aftryk på dansk jazz og altid været garant for et tårnhøjt musikalsk niveau. Han var den første til at modtage Ben Webster-prisen i 1977. En pris, der i øvrigt blev tildelt Olivier Antunes i 1999. Thilo og Antunes indledte deres telepatiske samarbejde i 1995, hvor den blot 22-årige Olivier trådte ind på den store scene sammen med den allerede internationalt anerkendte Thilo. Mentor og protegé-forholdet lagde kimen til et samarbejde, der gennem årene har slået musikalske gnister. Kombinationen af Thilos varme, sprøde og melodiske saxofon oven på Antunes’ ungdommelige, potente og temperamentsfulde piano udgør en udsøgt cocktail, som enhver jazzkender vil nyde smagen af. Ikke mindst når de også bliver akkompagneret af de to virtuoser; Thomas Fonnesbæk på bas og Janus Templeton ved trommerne.

Few artists can unite the modestly beautiful with a burning intensity like singer and songwriter Sophie Zelmani.

Sophie Zelmani’s new album “Sunrise” is released in early 2019. This will be album number 12, since she made her first appearance in the mid 90’s.

Hannah Svensson (Vocal / SE)Jacob Fischer (Guitar / DK)Mattias Svensson (Bass / SE)Zoltán Csörsz (Drums / HU)Klas Lindkvist (Alto Sax/Clarinet / SE)

Singer Hannah Svensson has a special place in Swedish jazz. She is not only a jazz singer; she is very inspired by Americana as well as Swedish popular- and traditional music, and is also a fine piano player, as well as being a fine and tasteful painter – her paintings are off course inspired by her life in jazz. But her main profile is that of a jazz singer, already now belonging to the forefront of Swedish jazz singing in 2018.

Blandt de unge svenske jazzsangerinder indtager Hannah Svensson en særstilling. Ikke kun inddrager hun inspirationer fra Americana og fra både svensk populærmusik og folkemusik. Hun er en glimrende pianist, hvor hun med enkelt spil akkompagnerer sine smukke sange. Og hun er faktisk også en dygtig og smagfuld malerkunstner, der selvfølgelig lader sig inspirere af jazzen. Men det er som sangerinde, at hun for alvor viser sit format som en fremtidig formidler af jazzsang med svenske fortegn. Hannah Svensson tilhører toppen af svensk jazzsang anno 2018.

Tyler Blanton (Vibes / US)Jon Cowherd (Piano / US)Massimo Biolcati (Bass / US)tba (Drums)

Jazz is rapidly developing these years. Young musicians appear regularly and show guts, talent and above all maturity. This Californian-born, now living in New York, vibe player Tyler Blanton is one of these. Thorough studies of the instrument and its possibilities and a natural ability to create music that makes sense, has rushed Blanton up among the leading vibe-players of the US. Blanton brings thought out music that seems inspired by classical American jazz as well as classical European music.

Photo: Vincent Soyez

Jazzen udvikler sig mest og hurtigst i disse år. Unge musikere dukker hele tiden op og viser talent, vovemod og ikke mindst modenhed. Den unge Californiske, nu i New York bosatte vibrafonist Tyler Blanton er en af disse. Grundige studier af instrumentets muligheder og en medfødt evne til at skabe musik, der giver mening, har katapultet ham op blandt USA's førende vibrafonister. Tyler Blanton kommer med et gennemtænkt og –ført musikalsk univers, der bringer tankerne i retning af både klassisk amerikansk jazz og klassisk europæisk kompositionsmusik.

Danish pianist Zier Romme has been named greatest talent in many years. And well deserved it is. He has an impressive technique; his musical ideas flow like a thundering river and he respectfully follows the fine path of instrumental predecessors. Zier Romme Trio plays jazz with joy and innovation which proves that the formation piano, bass and drums still can produce great music – as long as the musicians on stage have something on their mind. Enjoy excellent music played by excellent musicians.

With Swedish Sven-Erik Lundekvist Trio we are a little further ahead in jazz history. He brings his own music, but off course has the necessary respect for the tradition. His music is aggressive and in-your-face, but don’t worry; you are not pushed away. The three musicians know what they are doing and join each other – and the audience – in a fruitful and ever commenting and supportive cooperation. New Swedish jazz with heart, soul and energy.

Danske Zier Romme er blevet kaldt det største klavertalent i mange år. Og noget er der om det. Hans teknik er imponerende, hans musikalske idérigdom nærmest uudtømmelig, og så nærer han en kæmpe respekt for den ”klassiske” jazzklavertrio. Vi får jazz fyret af med glæde og nytænkning tilsat en stor del bravour af denne skønne trio, som beviser at der sagtens kan lokkes endnu mere ud af besætningen klaver, bas og trommer – når bare de rette står på scenen. Se frem til et medrivende sæt med fremragende musikere i absolut hopla.

Fra Sverige kommer Sven-Erik Lundekvist Trio. Her er vi lidt længere fremme i jazzhistorien. Lundekvist medbringer egen musik, men naturligvis med den fornødne respekt for traditionen. Og denne trio holder sig ikke tilbage. Musikken er aggressiv og pågående, men uden at skubbe lytteren af ladet – der er en mening med galskaben. Og de tre musikere kan deres metier og indgår i et frugtbart og hele tiden kommenterende og støttende samarbejde. Ny svensk jazz med hjerte, sjæl og energi.

ILK Sessions: Duo Campanula + Anker/Sandell Duo

“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.

1. set:

Anders Banke (Saxophone / DK)Peter Danstrup (Bass / DK)

2. set:

Lotte Anker (Saxophone / DK)Sten Sandell (Piano / SE)

Duo Campanula consists of Anders Banke on saxophone and Peter Danstrup bass. The duo is named after a wild growing flower, deeply rooted in the Danish soil, yet distinctly influenced by the international music environment. This constellation, consisting of saxophone and bass guitar, investigates both the improvisational and composed music, which creates a unique music experience. Banke and Danstrup have worked together for years and get a lot of their inspiration from groups such as Reptiles and Klökkeblömst. The duo emphasizes an open and intimate approach for their compositions, which results in exciting new songs that range widely in genres.

Anker/Sandell Duo consists of Lotte Anker (saxophone) and Sten Sandell (piano). The duo has worked together on and off for 4 years, but their relation goes way back. For more than 20 years, Anker and Sandell have been a part of the same orchestras, such as Art-Out, Konvoj Ensemble and Pans Scan Ensemble. Both have a vast knowledge about, and talent within, their musical field, which results in adventurous and innovative compositions. They are both well-known artists within the European improv-stage and have worked with numerous international musicians. Sandells music is inspired by a deeply personal and explorative expression. He masters the piano as well as the organ and the clavichord. Moreover, he composes music for both radio and theatres. Likewise, Ankers musical expression is inspired by a personal and lively expression. Anker has even been the initiator of groups such as Taborn, Anker and Electic Habitat.

Duo Campanula består af Anders Banke på saxofon og Peter Danstrup på bass. Duoen er opkaldt efter en vildtvoksende gevækst med rødder dybt plantet i den danske muld, dog med en klar international påvirkning. Denne konstellation af saxofon og bass afsøger både den improviserende og den komponerede musik, hvilket skaber en enestående musisk oplevelse. Banke og Danstrup har samarbejdet gennem flere år og trækker tråde tilbage til grupper som Reptiles og Klökkeblömst, hvorfra duoen får meget af deres inspiration. Duoen lægger dog vægt på en åben og intim tilgang til deres kompositioner, hvilket resulterer i spændende nye numre, der genremæssigt spænder bredt.

Anker/Sandell Duo består af Lotte Anker på saxofon og Sten Sandell på klaver. Duoen har samarbejdet on and off igennem 4 år, men deres bekendtskab går mere end 20 år tilbage, hvor de gennem tiden har været medlem af flere af de samme orkestre, eksempelvis Art-Out, Konvoj Ensemble og Pans Scan Ensemble. Begge har en enorm viden om og talent inden for deres musiske felt, hvilket resulterer i eventyrlige og nytænkende kompositioner. De er begge kendte navne på den europæiske improvisations-scene og har samarbejdet med utallige internationale musikere. Sandells musik præges af et dybt personligt og udforskende udtryk, og han mestrer både klaveret, orglet og clavichorden. Han komponerer desuden musik for både radio og teater. Ankers musiske udtryk præges ligeledes af det personlige og levende udtryk. Hun har blandt andet været initiativtager på grupper som Taborn, Anker og Electic Habitat.

Charles McPherson Quartet: American Jazz Legend

“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.
Charles McPherson (Alto Sax / US)Albert Palau (Piano / ES)Mark Hodgson (Bass / UK)Stephen Keogh (Drums / IE)

Alto player Charles McPherson’s fine sound played a leading role in Clint Eastwood’s excellent movie about the life of jazz-legend Charlie Parker, ”Bird”; providing the sound for actor Forest Whitaker’s brilliant performance as Parker. McPherson was for many years closely connected to jazz-legend Charles Mingus, and he was an often-used sideman when the authentic jazz-feeling was needed. McPherson also led own groups, always focusing on genuine and heartfelt swing – more than on a ground-breaking approach. His playing today contains the same values. Charles McPherson – now in his 80th year – still represents onrushing, physical and a devil-may-care musical expression, directly from the heart of jazz itself.

I Clint Eastwoods fine film om legenden Charlie Parker, ”Bird”, havde McPhersons altsaxspil en fremtrædende rolle; den gav simpelthen lyd til Forest Whitakers præstation som Parker, og modtog fine omtaler verden over. McPherson var i mange år tæt knyttet til Charles Mingus, og han var en ofte benyttet sideman, når den autentiske lyd stod i centrum. Han har også ledet egne grupper, og altid med fokus på det gedigent swingende, og mindre på om musikken var grænsenedbrydende. Og sådan er det stadigvæk i Charles McPhersons 80. år; fremadbrusende, fysisk og fanden-i-voldsk musikalsk udtryk fra jazzens inderste sjæl.

ECM 50 Years: Ralph Towner

“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.
Ralph Towner (Guitar / US)

American guitarist and pianist Ralph Towner has been a member of groundbreaking west-American acoustic groups, Paul Winter Consort and Oregon. His cooperation with e.g. Gary Burton, John Abercrombie and early Weather Report and – maybe most importantly – his many releases on the highly respected German record label ECM, has established Towners reputation as one of the absolute masters of the acoustic guitar. His playing is esoteric, focusing deeply on the timbre and constant harmonic development. His playing is never predictable, it is constantly lustful and ever satisfying. This is truly msic from a master.

Den amerikanske guitarist, pianist og komponist Ralph Towner har været skabende medlem af to banebrydende vestamerikanske akustiske grupper, Paul Winter Consort og Oregon. Hans samarbejde med bl.a. Gary Burton, John Abercrombie og Weather Report, og ikke mindst en lang række udgivelser på det respekterede pladeselskab ECM, har cementeret Towners ry som en af den akustiske guitars absolutte mestre. Vi er henne i den esoteriske del af guitartraditionen, med dybt fokus på klang og stadige harmoniske udviklinger. Aldrig forudsigelig, konstant lystfuld og altid tilfredsstillende musik fra denne mester.

Mette Juul (Vocal/Guitar / DK)Heine Hansen (Piano / DK)Klavs Hovman (Bass / DK)Morten Lund (Drums / DK)

Only a few Danish singer/songwriters has an equal charisma and so much to offer musically as Mette Juul. We are offered Americana with a lot of jazz on board and with inspirations from the Grand Ladies of American music. Mette Juul is an excellent singer, in total control over the range and possibilities of her voice. And above all she has a sure touch as her own leading lady, she knows from where the music originated and she knows where she wants to take it. London Jazz News wrote: "Danish singer/songwriter Mette Juul is one of those artists who creep up on you and grow upon you and, as you absorb the melodies and the intriguing lyrics, suddenly you're in love with a voice”. Mette Juul is on stage accompanied by three of the finest jazz musicians in the country.

Få danske singer/songwriters har en så stor udstråling og så meget på hjerte rent musikalsk som Mette Juul. Stilistisk er vi henne i nutidig americana med masser af jazz i bagagen, og inspirationen kommer fra de store damer i amerikansk musik. Mette Juul er en fremragende sangerinde, der har fuld kontrol over stemmens muligheder, og fremfor alt er hun en stilsikker og moden frontfigur, der ved, hvor musikken kommer fra, og hvor hun vil have den hen. London Jazz News skriver: "Danish, singer/songwriter, Juul is one of those artists who creep up on you and grow upon you and, as you absorb the melodies and the intriguing lyrics, suddenly you're in love with a voice”. Her bliver Mette Juul akkompagneret af tre af landets absolut bedste jazz-musikere.

Marc Ribot Solo

“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.
Marc Ribot (Guitar / US)

In the 1980s US-guitarist belonged to the wave of young jazz musicians who took apart jazz and put it back together in unexpected ways. His often brutal and atonal playing turned off traditionalists, but everyone agreed that he was a musician with a message and able to penetrate all prejudice. Today Marc Ribot is an icon! Not just among guitar players, but the entire jazz world hails him as an innovator and uncompromising artist. Not that he has changed his way of playing; but the history of jazz has finally caught up with him, and is now moving along the same path. Marc Ribot is member of another icon’s group, singer and songwriter Tom Waits, when he is recording and touring. Face a change in your perception of jazz and expect to receive a once-in-a-lifetime experience when Marc Ribot enters the stage.

Tilbage i 80erne var den amerikanske guitarist Marc Ribot en del af bølgen af yngre jazzmusikere, der skilte musikken ad og satte den skævt sammen. Hans ofte brutale og atonale spil skilte vandene, men alle var enige om, at han var en musiker med noget på hjerte og en evne til at trænge igennem alle fordomme. I dag er Marc Ribot et ikon! Ikke kun blandt guitarister, men den samlede jazzverden hylder ham som en innovator og en kompromisløs kunstner. Ikke fordi han har ændret spillestil; jazzhistorien er blot kommet op på siden af ham og kører nu et smukt parallelt løb. Marc Ribot er fast med, når et andet ikon, sangeren og komponisten Tom Waits, går i studiet og spiller sine ganske få koncerter. Få rykket ved forudbestemte forestillinger om, hvordan jazz skal lyde og få en ordentlig en på opleveren med Marc Ribot på scenen.

Monten: Røgsignal

Jakob Lauritsen (Rhodes / DK)Nikolaj Bugge (Guitar / DK)Henrik Lauritsen (Bass / DK)Jonas Møller Andreasen (Drums / DK)

The Aarhus based band Røgsignal has created their own sound in a world of pulsating beats and experimental soundscapes. Their songs are inspired by modern indie rock and a longing for the deserted country roads of Western Jutland.
Røgsignal has a dreamy and inexplicable sound, which is both beautiful and calming. The release of their album “Pletter På Solen” lead to them playing concerts at the biggest Danish Jazz festivals and music venues in Denmark, with great reviews and getting played in frequent rotation on the radio. Since then the band has been touring in Denmark and made two music videos. Røgsignal has also worked with Anders Boll from the band Efterklang and their releases has been described as fusion jazz incorporating different sounds and influences from Denmark and the wider world of music.

I et væld af pulserende beats og eksperimenterende lydflader har Aarhus-baserede Røgsignal skabt sit helt eget instrumentale univers. Deres sange er inspireret af moderne indierock og hjemve efter øde landeveje i Vestjylland. Røgsignal har en drømmende og uforklarlig lyd, som er smuk og beroligende. Udgivelsen af debutalbummet “Pletter På Solen” medfødte stor opmærksomhed herhjemme: Koncerter på de største, danske jazzfestivaler og spillesteder og begejstrede anmeldelser samt et halvt år i fast rotation på DR P8-Jazz. Siden har bandet turneret hele landet rundt og sideløbende udgivet to musikvideoer som akkompagnement til albummet. Røgsignal har også samarbejdet med Efterklangs Anders Boll, og deres udgivelser beskrives som fusionsjazz, som både lyder dansk og internationalt på samme tid.

Benjamin Koppel (Alto Sax / DK)Scott Colley (Bass / US)

The art of jazz is based on communication and dialogue between the musicians and the audience. Very few master this art form and communication better than American bass player Scott Colley and Danish alto sax player Benjamin Koppel. They have worked together for more than 10 years and are able to light the fire and keep it going throughout an entire concert. Remarkably intense, powerful and highly inspiring music from two musicians, who masters the interplay and the mutual inspiration to maximum extend.

Jazz er et levende kunstnerisk udtryk baseret på kommunikation og dialog. Mellem musikere på scenen og mellem kunstneren og publikum. Få udvikler og værner bedre om kunstformen og kommunikationen end disse to fremtrædende virtuoser på jazzscenen – den amerikanske bassist Scott Colley og den danske altsaxofonist Benjamin Koppel. Med 10 års samarbejde bag sig evner de virtuost at tænde flammen og holde den i gang uden ophør gennem en hel koncert. Uhyre intens, magtfuld og dybt inspirerende musik fra to musikere, der mestrer sammenspillet og den gensidige inspiration til fuldkommenhed.

American drummer Alvin Queen have a close relationship with Denmark. He was member of Danish icon Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen’s trio for many years, and is a regular guest here. One of the last occasions was at Danish Music Awards Jazz in 2017, where he, with pianist Zier Romme and bass player Ida Hviid, played an enchanted concert, which proved that trio jazz of today definitely not is a sorry excuse for itself! With his constantly swinging and attentive playing, Alvin Queen is a drummer who in the finest way passes on the Afro American playing. Meet Alvin Queen with his group, consisting of musicians who share his musical focus - highly satisfying!

Den amerikanske trommeslager har et nært forhold til Danmark. Han var fast trommeslager i ikonet NHØPs sidste gruppe og har siden gæstet landet ved utallige lejligheder. En af de seneste lejligheder var DMA jazz 2017, hvor han, pianist Zier Romme og bassist Ida Hvid i den grad fyrede den af og beviste, at triojazz i dag bestemt ikke kravler undskyldende langs væggen. Med sit levende, swingende og opmærksomme spil er han en af de trommeslagere, som bedst viderefører den afroamerikanske spillestil. Her er Alvin Queen med en flot gruppe bestående af musikere, der har samme fokus - dybt tilfredsstillende!

Seamus Blake (Tenor Sax / UK)Hayden Powell (Trumpet / UK)Espen Berg (Piano / NO)Jesper Bodilsen (Bass / DK)Anders Thorén (Drums / NO)

From England, via Canada and New York now living in Paris – here is one of the best tenor sax players of today; Seamus Blake. He played with almost everyone over the years, and has created his own style; cleaning up in the phrases, and only playing the ones that make sense. Seamus Blake’s playing on the tenor sax and the electronical EWI is highly satisfying – whatever genre you as a listener may prefer. Constantly melodically perfect, raunching if necessary and intense when needed. Here you can enjoy Seamus Blake with a group who is more than capable of laying out the fine blanket under his playing and providing him with the best possible backing.

Oprindelig fra England, senere bosat i Canada og New York og nu i Paris – her møder vi en af tidens mest velspillende saxofonister, Seamus Blake. Han har spillet med dem alle sammen og har med årene udviklet sin helt egen stil; han rydder op i tonerne og lader kun dem, der giver mening blive. Seamus Blakes spil på saxofonen og på den elektriske EWI er yderst tilfredsstillende, uanset hvilken genre man som lytter foretrækker. Konstant melodisk perfekt, fræsende hvis nødvendigt, og intenst insisterende når det kræves. Her er Blake med en gruppe, der kan lægge det nødvendige musikalske tæppe ud, og giver ham den bedst tænkelige backing.

Aaron Parks (Piano / US)Greg Tuohey (Guitar / NZ)DJ Ginyard (Bass / US)Tommy Crane (Drums / US)

Danish Jazz Federation invited American pianist Aaron Parks to Denmark for one month in 2013, to inspire, perform with and generally join the Danish jazz scene. During his stay, he made many new friends among musicians and – especially among the attentive jazz audience. Parks has returned many times and is a treasured guest on the piano benches all over our country. His highly emotional and attentive playing may remind you of the great ones (Jarrett, Evans et al), but Aaron Parks is quite unique. He could be one of the great ones himself in the years to come. Please greet Aaron Parks with his steady US-group that delivers his musical ideas in the finest way.

I 2013 blev den amerikanske pianist Aaron Parks inviteret til at tilbringe en måned i Danmark for at spille med og inspirere danske musikere. Under sit ophold fandt han mange nye venner, og hans smukke spil skaffede ham mange fans. Parks har siden gæstet Danmark ved utalige lejligheder og er en kær og skattet gæst bag flyglerne landet over. Hans følelsesladede og opmærksomme spil kan give mindelser om de helt store (Jarrett, Evans m.fl.), men Parks er helt sin egen. Fortsætter han sin udvikling, kan Aaron Parks blive en af de helt store pianister. Her er han med sin faste amerikanske gruppe, der på allerbedste vis forløser hans musikalske visioner.
