Søren Lee Diversity 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.
Søren Lee (Guitar / DK)Linley Marthe (Bass / MU)Niclas Campagnol (Drums / SE)

After more than a year of a forced corona break, guitarist Søren Lee finally returns to Montmartre with his strong trio consisting of bassist Linley Marthe and drummer Niclas Campagnol. It's terrific contemporary guitar jazz, with Lee borrowing from the six-string heroes like John Scofield and Jeff Beck. Søren Lee is an insanely captivating guitarist and manages to seduce even the most skeptical anti-jazzers with his dynamic and melodic sound. The super funky bassist Linley Marthe gathers and pushes the music in a constant and hugely inspiring direction. Drummer Niclas Campagnol's eager play ensures that the pot is always kept boiling.

The three musicians have created their very own sound. In contrast to the wild energy, Søren Lee has written beautiful Nordic-sounding songs, which create a youthful and contemporary version of the guitar trio.

Guitaristen Søren Lee kommer endelig tilbage til Montmartre med sin stærkt spillende trio bestående af bassisten Linley Marthe og trommeslageren Niclas Campagnol. Det er forrygende nutidig guitar-jazz, hvor Lee låner fra de seksstrengede helte som John Scofield og Jeff Beck. Søren Lee er en vanvittigt medrivende guitarist og magter at forføre selv de mest skeptiske antijazzere med sin dynamiske og melodiske lyd. Den super funky bassist Linley Marthe samler og skubber musikken i en konstant og enormt inspirerende retning. Trommeslager Niclas Campagnols ivrige spil sørger for at gryden altid holdes i kog.

De tre musikere har skabt deres helt egen lyd. Som kontrast til de vilde energiudladninger har Søren Lee skrevet smukke nordisk klingende sange, som skaber en ungdommelig og nutidig version af guitartrioen.

“Upcoming” is Montmartre’s series of talent concerts where upcoming artists test the boundaries of jazz.
Jonas Dannerbugt (Guitar / DK)Andreas Enrique Bergholt (Keys / DK)Mads Dalum Poulsen (Bass / DK)Mikkel Noe (Drums / DK)

The winning quartet of this year’s Jazzkonkurrencen, Metroscope, is going to blow you away! Metroscope is an incredebly talented quartet from the Danish city of Aalborg that plays modern, instrumental music. The music combines the improvisational universe of jazz with a solid groove-based expression. The group's sound is expressed through original compositions that are characterized by energetic rock grooves, crooked beats and inciting Latin American rhythms.

In 2020, the debut single “Alabur” was released, which is a tribute to the band's hometown Aalborg, where the group's Nordic roots are expressed through a simple and down-to-earth sound universe. In 2021, Metroscope has released two new digital single releases and looks forward to releasing their upcoming debut album.

Metroscope is one of the four finalists in Jazzkonkurrencen 2020 and has in that context been given the possibility to perfom as a headliner at Jazzhus Montmartre. The concert is presented in collaboration with JazzDanmark and Gangstedfonden.

Oplev vinder-kvartetten Metroscope fra Jazzkonkurrencen 2021 blæse Montmartre bagover! Metroscope er en uhyrlig talentfuld kvartet fra Aalborg, som spiller moderne, instrumental musik. Musikken kombinerer jazzens improvisationsunivers med et bastant groovebaseret udtryk. Gruppens lyd viser sig gennem originale kompositioner, der bærer præg af energiske rock-grooves, skæve taktarter og inciterende latinamerikanske rytmer.

I 2020 udkom debutsinglen “Alabur”, som er en hyldest til bandets hjemby Aalborg, hvor gruppens nordiske rødder kommer til udtryk gennem et simpelt og jordnært lydunivers. I 2021 har Metroscope udgivet to nye singleudgivelser og ser snart frem til at udgive deres kommende debutalbum.

Metroscope er en af de fire finalister i Jazzkonkurrencen 2020 og har i den forbindelse fået muligheden for en headliner-koncert på Jazzhus Montmartre. Koncerten præsenteres i samarbejde med JazzDanmark og Gangstedfonden.

Dahl/Bergonzi/Jormin/Nussbaum: The Composing Musician

“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)Jerry Bergonzi (Tenor Sax / US)Anders Jormin (Bass / SE)Adam Nussbaum (Drums / US)

The pianist, composer and painter Carsten Dahl is a man with many dishes in the oven. This latest is certainly one of the most alluring to lovers of his music. Dahl has called in three musicians, each of whom masters their own expression to perfection, and together they are seeking the sublime on these three exclusive concerts.

American saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi belongs to the absolute top of his instrument. Every single note in his highly physical play makes sense, but it never goes away and becomes superficial. The Swedish bassist Anders Jormin approaches the music with a desire that always inspires and always impresses. By the drums sits one of Danish jazz lovers' favorites. Adam Nussbaum is 110% present in the music and with his ultra-dynamic and fiery playing, he inspires his fellow musicians to always perform their best. Carsten Dahl's unique desire and ability to create great music is here given the optimal opportunities to once again give the audience the great and sparkling musical experience.

Pianisten, komponisten, kunstmaleren m.m. Carsten Dahl er en mand med mange retter i ovnen. Denne nyeste er bestemt en af de mere dragende for elskere af hans musik. Dahl har tilkaldt tre musikere, der hver især behersker deres eget udtryk til fuldkommenhed, for sammen at søge det sublime ved disse tre eksklusive koncerter.

Den amerikanske saxofonist Jerry Bergonzi tilhører den absolutte top på sit instrument. Hver en tone i hans stærkt fysiske spil giver mening, men det går aldrig hen og bliver overfladisk. Den svenske bassist Anders Jormin går til musikken med en lyst og en iver, der altid inspirerer og altid imponerer. Ved trommesættet sidder en af danske jazzelskeres yndlinge; Adam Nussbaum er 110% til stede i musikken og kan med sit ultradynamiske og iltre spil inspirere sine medmusikere til altid at yde deres optimale. Carsten Dahls unikke lyst og evne til at skabe stor musik får her optimale muligheder for atter at give publikum den store og brusende musikalske oplevelse.

Tobias Stavngaard Sextet: Album Release

“Upcoming” is Montmartre’s series of talent concerts where upcoming artists test the boundaries of jazz.
Tobias Stavngaard (Trombone / DK)Jakob Sørensen (Trumpet / DK)Aske Drasbæk (Saxophones / DK)Carl-emil Dons Christensen (Piano / DK)William Mannerland (Bass / SE)Nikolaj Bangsgaard (Drums / DK)

Tobias Stavngaard is a young trombone player and composer living in Copenhagen. Despite his mere 22 years, he is already an established musician on the Denmark's jazz stages - among other things by virtue of his position as trumpet player in the Aarhus Jazz Orchestra. However, it is with this sextet that he really makes his debut as a soloist and composer on the Danish jazz scene.

Tobias Stavngaard Sextet plays original contemporary music with respect for the tradition. Large parts of the music are thoroughly composed, but there is still room for improvisational elements from the group's skilled soloists. Precisely the group's detailed work with the relationship between the composed and improvised elements gives the music its refined and elaborate expression. The upcoming release "Historier om dette og hint" focuses on a handful of stories that have made an impression on the composer. The stories range widely from great literary works like The Odyssey to more whimsical stories about animals and more. Thus, the music is placed in an intertextual context and at the same time it tells its own story.

Tobias Stavngaard er en ung basunist og komponist bosat i København. På trods af sine blot 22 år er han allerede en etableret musiker på landets jazzscener - blandt andet i kraft af sin stilling som basunist i Aarhus Jazz Orchestra. Det er imidlertid med denne sekstet, at han for alvor gør sin debut som solist og komponist på den danske jazzscene.

Tobias Stavngaard Sextet spiller original kontemporær musik med respekt for traditionen. Store dele af musikken er gennemkomponeret, men der er alligevel plads til improvisatoriske indslag fra gruppens habile solister. Netop gruppens detaljerede arbejde med forholdet mellem de komponerede og improviserede elementer giver musikken dens raffinerede og gennemarbejdede udtryk. Den kommende udgivelse ”Historier om dette og hint” sætter fokus på en håndfuld historier, der har gjort indtryk på komponisten. Historierne spænder vidt fra store litterære værker som Odyséen til mere finurlige historier om dyr og andet. Således placeres musikken i en intertekstuel kontekst og fortæller på samme tid sin egen historie.

Scott Hamilton/Jan Lundgren Quartet

“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.
Scott Hamilton (Tenor Sax / US)Jan Lundgren (Piano / SE)Hans Backenroth (Bass / SE)Kristian Leth (Drums / DK)

Tenor saxophonist Scott Hamilton is always up for a fiery solo. Few, like him, have gained inspiration from all the tenor giants, mixed it all in a large tub, and from there created their very own sound and their deeply personal musical expression. Some will find his style a bit outdated, while others - probably most - enjoy Hamilton's genuine and heartfelt grip on the best sides of classical jazz; it swings, it sounds good, and it is with guarantee an honest and genuine musical statement from a musician who has always been true to what he loves.

Listening to Scott Hamilton is like cruising around New York City in a 1958 Cadillac DeVille; 100% American and 100% honest music. These evenings he is accompanied by the magnificent trio consisting of Jan Lundgren, Hans Backenroth and Kristian Leth.

Tenorsaxofonisten Scott Hamilton er altid god for en fyrig solo. Få musikere har som han suget til sig fra alle tenorgiganterne, mikset inspirationerne i en stor balje, og derfra skabt sig sin helt egen lyd og sit dybt personlige musikalske udtryk. Nogle vil finde hans stil en anelse outdated, mens andre – nok de fleste – nyder Hamiltons ægte og dybtfølte greb om den klassiske jazz’ bedste sider; det swinger, det lyder godt, og det er med statsgaranti et ærligt og ægte musikalsk udsagn fra en musiker, der altid har været tro mod det han elsker.

At lytte til Scott Hamilton er som at cruise rundt i New York City i en 1958’er Cadillac DeVille; 100% amerikansk og 100% ærlig musik. Disse aftener høres han med den eminente trio bestående af Jan Lundgren, Hans Backenroth og Kristian Leth.

I Think You’re Awesome

Lars Fiil (Keys / DK)Alex Jønsson (Guitar / DK)Morten Kærup (Guitar/Banjo / DK)Jens Mikkel Madsen (Bass / DK)Frej Lesner (Percussion/Electronics / DK)Andreas Skamby (Drums / DK)

With a wealth of sold-out concerts all over Denmark, several nominations for prestigious jazz awards and over a million streams on Spotify, the Danish group "I Think You're Awesome" has really made a great impression on both the Danish and international jazz scene.

As the band's name indicates, "I Think You're Awesome" is a fantastically refreshing project, from which great amounts of good vibes and love radiates, as seen on their big hit "Be Kind to Your Neurosis" from the hit album "Løft Mig Op, Så Jeg Kan Nå” from 2014.

Most recently, the group released the album "Suite to Be You and Me" in 2020, which like the rest of the discography offers an invigorating genre mix from Americana and African rhythms to Nordic jazz and indie pop. We look forward to seeing one of the very top jazz groups of modern time unfold their infamous joy of playing at Jazzhus Montmartre.

Med et væld af udsolgte koncerter over hele landet, adskillige nomineringer til fornemme jazz-priser og over en million streams på Spotify har den danske gruppe ”I Think You’re Awesome” for alvor sat et flot aftryk på både den danske og internationale jazzscene.

Som bandets navn indikerer, er ”I Think You’re Awesome” et fantastisk forfriskende projekt, hvorfra der udstråles enorme mængder af gode vibes og kærlighed, som det eksempelvis ses på deres store hit ”Be Kind to Your Neurosis” fra succes-albummet ”Løft Mig Op, Så Jeg Kan Nå” fra 2014.

Senest udkom gruppen med albummet ”Suite to Be You and Me” i 2020, der ligesom resten af diskografien tilbyder en opkvikkende genreblanding af alt lige fra Americana og afrikanske rytmer til nordisk jazz og indie pop. Vi ser frem til at opleve en af tidens helt store og relevante grupper udfolde deres så eftertragtede spilleglæde og virtuositet på Jazzhus Montmartre.

Mario Bakuna Band: Brazilian Landscapes

“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.
Mario Bakuna (Vocal/Guitar / BR)Felippe Oliveira (Bass / BR)Uccio Gaeta (Drums / BR)

It's always great to hear authentic Brazilian music, and here is your chance! Guitarist and singer Mario Bakuna and his close trio take on the classic Brazilian compositions by Djavan, Joao Bosco, Gilberto Gil, Marcos Valle and the other giants and give them their very own personal touch, which also draws on inspiration from the contemporary American jazz scene.

The music is tight and with his richness of color and desire, Bakuna will be able to inspire anyone listening. With this project, Bakuna wants to innovate and update the bossa nova, the samba and the other golden Brazilian genres, and one has to say that he does it extremely well. His scat-singing is quite enchanting and goes formidably in line with the rhythm group's close interplay. Expect a terrific concert where joy and desire will be ruling the show.

Det er altid dejligt at høre autentisk brasiliansk musik, og her kommer chancen! Guitaristen og sangeren Mario Bakuna og hans tætte trio tager fat i klassiske brasilianske kompositioner af Djavan, Joao Bosco, Gilberto Gil, Marcos Valle og de andre giganter og giver dem sit helt eget personlige touch, der tilmed trækker på inspiration fra den nutidige amerikanske jazzscene.

Musikken sidder lige i skabet og med sin farverigdom og lyst vil Bakuna kunne inspirere hvem som helst. Med dette projekt ønsker Bakuna at forny og opdatere bossanovaen, sambaen og de andre gyldne brasilianske genrer, og man må sige, at han gør det rimeligt godt. Hans scatsang er ganske fortryllende og går formidabelt i hak med rytmegruppens tætte sammenspil. Forvent en forrygende koncert, hvor glæden og lysten styrer showet.

Jan Kaspersen Quintet

“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.
Jan Kaspersen (Piano / DK)Simon Spang-Hanssen (Trumpet / DK)Bob Rockwell (Tenor Sax / US)Niels Ryde (Bass / DK)Ole Rømer (Drums / DK)

The conductor Jan Kaspersen behind the piano is leading this classic quintet after almost 40 years. Here we have a highly respected band with veteran status, who have played together at a level that is rarely heard in Denmark as well as abroad!

Simon Spang-Hanssen and Bob Rockwell are in front as soloists of absolute international class accompanied by Niels Ryde, Ole Rømer and the conductor himself. It is music with drive, imagination and energy. With its immediate and raw swinging expression, sometimes added a splash of humor, the quintet conveys a lively and warm musical experience. There is plenty of room for play in the music, that draws on inspirations from jazz, blues, rock and latin. Do not be surprised if a few Monk titles or jazz standards sneak into the concert program along the way.

Rumpistol: Isola

Jens B. Christiansen (Keys / DK)Line Felding (Cello / DK)Maria Jagd (Violin / DK)Kristian Hoffmann (Lap Steel / DK)Andreas Markus (Bass / DK)Emil de Waal (Drums / DK)

On 1st of April 2022 the album "Isola" will be released, which is the seventh album by musician and composer Jens B. Christiansen, also known under the name Rumpistol. The album is based on the stress-related burn-out that Christiansen experienced in 2018, which radically changed the way he works and creates music. This revelation resulted in the critically acclaimed release "After the Flood" from 2020, which Gaffa's critic described as "Organic, tactile and unstoppable ... Alluring and sensually beautiful".

Throughout his 20-year career, Rumpistol has evolved from singlehandedly creating detailed electronic music that has taken him around the world, to now slowing down the pace and reaching out to musicians from the world of jazz and classical music. This could be experienced through his work with the band Kalaha, but also with his own Rumpistol Ensemble, which is characterized by the meditative and cinematic sound, that lies somewhere between ambient, jazz and neo-classical music.

Den 1. april 2022 udkommer “Isola”, som er det syvende album af musiker og komponist Jens B. Christiansen også kendt under kunstnernavnet Rumpistol. Albummet bunder i den stress-relaterede burn-out som Christiansen oplevede i 2018, der radikalt ændrede den måde han arbejder og laver musik på. Denne åbenbaring resulterede i den anmelderroste udgivelse ”After The Flood” fra 2020, som Gaffas anmelder beskrev som "Organisk, taktil og uafrystelig... Dragende og sanseligt smukt".

Rumpistol har igennem sin 20 år lange karriere udviklet sig fra som ene mand at skabe detaljerig elektronisk musik, der har bragt ham verden rundt, til at skrue ned for tempoet og række ud til musikere fra jazzens og den klassiske musiks verden. Dette har bl.a. kunne opleves igennem hans arbejde med bandet Kalaha, men også med sit eget Rumpistol Ensemble, som kendetegnes ved den meditative og filmiske lyd, som ligger sig et sted imellem ambient, jazz og neo-klassisk musik.

Regnfang

“Upcoming” is Montmartre’s series of talent concerts where upcoming artists test the boundaries of jazz.
Niels de Fine Olivarius (Trumpet / DK)Christian Holm-Svendsen (Tenor Sax/Clarinet / DK)William Steffensen (Guitar / DK)Emil Madsen (Bass / DK)Nikolaj Bangsgaard (Drums / DK)

Regnfang exists in the borderland between the improvising language of jazz and the soundscapes of indie rock. The music draws threads to i.a. the Nordic jazz tradition and the melodic universe of the danish songbook. Regnfang’s songs are inspired by the Scandinavian weather, landscape, and poetry. There are tracks that describe experiences and moods - from large underground railway stations in Sweden to reflections of the finest yellow summer flowers that grow by the roadside.

In June 2021, Regnfang released their debut album "Fuglene Flyver", and the group was one of the four selected finalists for this year's edition of the jazz competition. Regnfang consists of Niels de Fine Olivarius on trumpet, Christian Holm-Svendsen on saxophone and clarinet, William Steffensen on guitar, Emil Madsen on bass and Nikolaj Bangsgaard on drums.

Regnfang is one of the four finalists in Jazzkonkurrencen 2020 and has in that context been given the possibility to perfom as a headliner at Jazzhus Montmartre. The concert is presented in collaboration with JazzDanmark and Gangstedfonden.

Regnfang eksisterer i grænselandet mellem jazzens improviserende sprog og indierockens klangflader. Musikken trækker tråde til bl.a. den nordiske jazztradition og højskolesangbogens melodiske univers. Sangene er inspireret af det skandinaviske vejr, landskab og poesi. Der er numre, der beskriver oplevelser og stemninger – lige fra store underjordiske banegårde i Sverige til betragtninger af de fineste gule sommerblomster, der vokser i vejkanten.

I juni 2021 udgav Regnfang deres debutalbum ”Fuglene Flyver”, og gruppen var en af de fire udvalgte finalister til årets udgave af jazzkonkurrencen. Regnfang består af Niels de Fine Olivarius på trompet, Christian Holm-Svendsen på saxofon og klarinet, William Steffensen på guitar, Emil Madsen på bas og Nikolaj Bangsgaard på trommer.

Regnfang er en af de fire finalister i Jazzkonkurrencen 2020 og har i den forbindelse fået muligheden for en headliner-koncert på Jazzhus Montmartre. Koncerten præsenteres i samarbejde med JazzDanmark og Gangstedfonden.

Holmström/Osgood Quartet Plays the Music of Bent Jædig

“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.
Gilbert Holmström (Tenor Sax / SE)Kresten Osgood (Drums / DK)Ben Besiakov (Piano / DK)Anders 'AC' Christensen (Bass / DK)

This quartet consists of old and new friends who have all played together in a wide range of different constellations. The musical focus is here the compositions by the Danish tenor saxophonist and legend Bent Jædig whom every member of this group have a strong connection to.

Bent Jædig was a prominent representative of the bebop jazz and has had enormous impact on the Danish and international jazz scene. This evening, he is celebrated by four of his close colleagues. The eminent Gilbert Holmström is born same year as Jædig and they learned to play the saxophone from the same Charlie Parker album. Pianist Ben Besiakov, who is one of the most creative musicians on the Danish jazz scene, was Jædig’s preferred accompanist since the 90s. The exceptional Kresten Osgood has worked with the jazz legend in Osgood/Jædig Quartet and has played with the sought-after bassist Anders Christensen for more than 20 years.

Denne kvartet består af gamle og nye venner, der alle har indgået i samspil med hinanden i en lang række forskellige konstellationer. Det musikalske fokus er her kompositionerne af tenorsaxofonisten og legenden Bent Jædig, som denne kvartets medlemmer alle har haft en stærkt forhold til.

Bent Jædig var en fremtrædende repræsentant for bebop-jazzen og har været en enorm inspirationskilde på den danske og internationale jazzscene. Denne aften hyldes han af fire tætte kollegaer. Den fremragende Gilbert Holmström er født samme år som Jædig, og de lærte at spille saxofon ud fra det samme Charlie Parker-album. Pianisten Ben Besiakov, der er en af de mest kreative musikere på den danske jazzscene, var Jædigs foretrukne akkompagnatør fra 90’erne og frem. Den enestående Kresten Osgood har arbejdet med jazzlegenden i Osgood/Jædig Quartet og har spillet med den eftertragtede bassist Anders Christensen i mere end 20 år.

Abekejser

Jon Døssing Bendixen (Keys/Vocoder / DK)Jeppe Lavsen (Guitar / DK)Adrian Christensen (Bass / DK)Frederik Bülow (Drums / DK)

Abekejser shows again and again that modern jazz and party vibes are the freshest cocktail of the future. It is full on when Abekejser invites the crowd on a world tour in their mix of all sorts of genres and moods. Only few things are certain: It needs to be fun, and it needs to sound cool. This is the mantra when the band writes their songs, as well as when they perform their concerts.

The quartet's second initiative "Blueprint", which was published in September 2021, and was incredibly positively received by the critics, who among other things stated: "The joy of playing radiates from Abekejser on their latest single "Hey Girl", and the band members manage to combine the original approach to pop music with a jazzy expression that testifies to an enormous musical knowledge." - Bands of Tommorow.

The musical inspirations draw threads to bands like Jaga Jazzist, Snarky Puppy and Weather Report, but Abekejser still contains a completely new sound that is difficult to put in a box. Since the latest release, the band has spent time perfecting their live performance, and is now more cohesive than ever before. We can look forward to a firework of a concert, when Abekejser visits Jazzhus Montmartre!

Abekejser viser gang på gang, at moderne jazz og party-vibes er fremtidens friskeste cocktail. Den får aldrig for lidt, når Abekejser inviterer på en jordomrejse i deres blanding af alverdens genrer og stemninger. Kun få ting er sikre: Det skal være sjovt, og det skal lyde fedt. Dette er mantraet, når bandet skriver deres numre, såvel som når de spiller koncerter.

Kvartettens andet udspil ”Blueprint”, som udkom i september 2021, blev utroligt positivt modtaget af anmelderne, der bl.a. udtalte: ”Spilleglæden stråler ud af Abekejser på deres nyeste single “Hey Girl”, og så formår de fem bandmedlemmer at kombinere den originale tilgang til popmusik med et jazzet udtryk, der vidner om enormt musikalsk overskud.” – Bands of Tommorow.

De musikalske inspirationer trækker tråde til bands som Jaga Jazzist, Snarky Puppy og Weather Report, men Abekejser rummer alligevel en helt ny lyd, der er svær at sætte i bås. Tiden efter udgivelsen har bandet brugt på at perfektionere deres live-performance, og de er nu mere samspillede og sammentømrede end nogensinde før. Vi kan derfor se frem til et festfyrværkeri af en koncert, når de lægger vejen forbi Jazzhus Montmartre!

Norma Winstone (Vocal / UK)Percy Pursglove (Trumpet / UK)Mike Murley (Tenor Sax / CA)David Braid (Piano / CA)Johnny Åman (Bass / FI)Anders Mogensen (Drums / DK)

The Canadian/English trumpet player, composer and trendsetter Kenny Wheeler is celebrated these two evenings. He became an icon in his extremely active years, where he was part of creating and developing the special “ECM-sound” – named after the record company. Here, focus was on the sound, the serenity, the breaks and not the least on the compositional element.

These concerts may prove to be iconic. Not just because of the contributing musicians all belonging to the respectively English, Finnish and Danish elite of jazz, but also because the group is visited by the English singer Norma Winstone, who worked together with Kenny Wheeler in a period of years. She can without any doubt pass on the special melancholic and heartfelt feeling that was one of Wheeler’s distinguishing characteristics. Enjoy the beautiful melody lines and the enriching serenity in the music.

Den canadisk-engelske trompetist, komponist og stilskaber Kenny Wheeler fejres disse to aftener. Han blev et ikon i sine uhyre aktive år, hvor han var med til at skabe og udvikle den særlige ”ECM-lyd” – opkaldt efter pladeselskabet af samme navn. Her var fokus sat på klangen, roen, pauserne samt ikke mindst det kompositoriske islæt.

Disse koncerter kan vise sig at blive ganske ikoniske. Ikke kun fordi de medvirkende musikere alle tilhører henholdsvis den engelske, den finske og den danske jazzelite, men også fordi gruppen gæstes af den engelske sangerinde Norma Winstone, der arbejdede sammen med Kenny Wheeler i en årrække. Hun kan om nogen videregive den særlige melankolske og dybfølte ’feeling’, der var Wheelers særkende. Nyd de smukke melodilinjer og den berigende ro i musikken.

Steen Rasmussen/Josefine Cronholm: Milton på Svenska

“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.
Josefine Cronholm (Vocal / SE)Steen Rasmussen (Piano / DK)Anders Banke (Baritone Sax / DK)Frederik Damsgaard (Bass / DK)Celso de Almeida (Drums / BR)

The Brazilian composer and singer Milton Nascimento is one of his home country's greatest musical personalities. His unique voice and gripping melodic songs opened the ears of the rest of the world to newer Brazilian music when he broke through in the 1970s. Here, Nascimento's music is interpreted by a handful of musicians who want to provide a contemporary take on his timeless music.

Nascimento's often highly emotional lyrics are here "Scandinavianized" by the singer Josefine Cronholm. The pianist Steen Rasmussen is one of Denmark's leading interpreters of Brazilian music through his many years of focus on this beautiful country. Together with tenor saxophonist Anders Banke, the groove-oriented bassist Frederik Damsgaard and not least the incredibly swinging Brazilian drummer Celso de Almeida, the duo Cronholm/Rasmussen will surely seduce the audience with their personal interpretations of Milton Nascimento's beautiful and moving music.

Den brasilianske komponist og sanger Milton Nascimento er et af sit hjemlands allerstørste musikalske personligheder. Hans enestående stemme og gribende melodiøse sange åbnede resten af verdens ører for nyere brasiliansk musik, da han for alvor slog igennem i 1970’erne. Her fortolkes Nascimentos musik af en håndfuld musikere, der vil give et nutidigt bud på hans tidløse musikalske udtryk.

Nascimentos ofte stærkt følelsesladede tekster er her ”skandinaviseret” af sangeren Josefine Cronholm. Pianisten Steen Rasmussen er en af Danmarks førende fortolkere af brasiliansk musik gennem sine mange års fokus på dette skønne land. Sammen med tenorsaxofonisten Anders Banke, den grooveorienterede bassist Frederik Damsgaard og ikke mindst den voldswingende brasilianske trommeslager Celso de Almeida, vil duoen Cronholm/Rasmussen med garanti forføre publikum med deres personlige fortolkninger af Milton Nascimentos smukke og gribende musik.

Xhud

“Upcoming” is Montmartre’s series of talent concerts where upcoming artists test the boundaries of jazz.
Glen Montanaro (Guitar / DK)Anders Bak Julsgaard (Drums / DK)Jan Sedlák (Bass / DK)Mathilde Bistrup (Visuals / DK)

The music from the Aalborg based group Xhud draws on sounds from the ambient and experimental genre. It is a project that explores the interplay between emotions and spaces in music and art, and which therefore results in contemporary and modern jazz compositions. The music is even performed with vivid, graphic drawings that are part of the group's artistic expression. The graphic element has become a major feature of the band and has seriously put a big emphasis on the originality of their musical project.

The band was established during the first corona lockdown, which gave them an incredible peaceful time for creative immersion and not the least a lot of time to refine the project and bring the graphic and musical ideas to life. The result is a musical project, which reached all the way to the finals of the Jazz Competition 2021, and which is seriously pushing the boundaries of modern jazz.

Xhud is one of the four finalists in Jazzkonkurrencen 2020 and has in that context been given the possibility to perfom as a headliner at Jazzhus Montmartre. The concert is presented in collaboration with JazzDanmark and Gangstedfonden.

Musikken fra den Ålborgensiske gruppe Xhud trækker på lyde fra den ambiente og eksperimenterende genre. Det er et projekt, der udforsker samspillet mellem følelser og rum i musik og kunst, og som derfor resulterer i nutidige og moderne jazz-kompositioner. Musikken udføres tilmed med levende, grafiske tegninger, der indgår som fast del af gruppens kunstneriske udtryk. Det grafiske element er blevet et stort kendetegn for bandet og har for alvor sat en stor streg under originaliteten i deres musikalske projekt.

Bandet blev etableret under den første corona-lockdown, hvilket gav dem en helt utrolig ro til kreativ fordybelse og ikke mindst tid til at forfine projektet og føre de grafiske og lydmæssige idéer ud i livet. Resultatet blev et musikalsk projekt, der nåede hele vejen til finalen i Jazzkonkurrencen 2021, og som for alvor rykker ved grænserne i den moderne jazz.

Xhud er en af de fire finalister i Jazzkonkurrencen 2020 og har i den forbindelse fået muligheden for en headliner-koncert på Jazzhus Montmartre. Koncerten præsenteres i samarbejde med JazzDanmark og Gangstedfonden.

Døssing

Mathilde Døssing Bendixen (Vocal/Trombone / DK)Jon Døssing Bendixen (Keys/Synthesizer / DK)Aske Døssing Bendixen (Percussion)

Døssing is a newly formed sibling trio consisting of Jon, Aske and Mathilde Døssing Bendixen. Musically, they move within instrumental jazz, which is greatly emphasized by a playful approach as well as an unmistakable chemistry in their compositions and expressions on stage. When you as a listener are introduced to Døssing, it is clear that the trio comes from a background where music and the creative touch have been a deeply rooted part of their life’s. As children of the folktronica pioneers from Sorten Muld and with their upbringing in the community of Toustrup Mark in East Jutland, the trio have received music, community and co-creation from childhood.

Døssing's musical universe invites the audience to sit back in the chair and let their thoughts flow, and at other times to loosen up on the dance floor. With keys, synthesizers and effect machines on trombone and vocals, Døssing’s music is approaching the meeting between the electronic and the analogue, thus creating an atmospheric and dreamy universe that associates to David Lynch's Twin Peaks and Wes Anderson's Grand Budapest Hotel.

Døssing er en nydannet søskendetrio bestående af Jon, Aske og Mathilde Døssing Bendixen. Musikalsk bevæger de sig indenfor instrumental jazz, der i høj grad er betonet af en legesyg tilgang samt en umiskendelig kemi i deres kompositioner og udtryk på scenen. Når man som lytter introduceres til Døssing, fremgår det tydeligt, at trioen kommer med en baggrund, hvor musikken og det kreative islæt har været en dybt forankret del af livet. Som børn af folktronica-pionererne fra Sorten Muld og med deres barndom i bofællesskabet Toustrup Mark i Østjylland, kan trioen siges at have fået musik, fællesskab og samskabelse ind fra barnsben.

Døssing musikalske univers inviterer publikum til at læne sig tilbage i stolen og lade tankerne flyde, og andre gange til at slå sig løs på dansegulvet. Med keys, synthesizers og effektmaskiner på basun og vokal leger Døssing med mødet mellem det elektroniske og analoge og skaber på den måde et stemningsfyldt og drømmende univers, der henleder tankerne på David Lynch’s Twin Peaks og Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel.
