Tribute to Mr. Taste – Ed Thigpen

“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.

The legendary American drummer Ed Thigpen, who resided in Denmark for several years, was dearly beloved and admired for his elegant drum playing. His unique play on cymbals and with brushes got him the well-deserved name “Mr. Taste”. Thigpen has played with basically every big name within the jazz genre; Dinah Washington, Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Pettiford, Oscar Peterson, Nancy Wilson, Monty Alexander, NHØP and Svend Asmussen among others. He also appeared on more than 1500 record releases – including 50 recordings with Oscar Peterson Trio. In Denmark, he gave lessons and mentored a selected group of young Danish musicians – and was not least a colossal inspirator for the entire Danish jazz scene.

In 2020, Ed Thigpen would have turned 90 years old and is therefore celebrated with two exclusive concerts by some of his favorite musicians. This evening, the distinguished quintet consisting of Carsten Dahl, Jesper Bodilsen, Tomas Franck, Anders Bergcrantz and Karsten Bagge will perform music in the spirit of Thigpen. The music, which is collected from Thigpen’s own repertoire, will also be accompanied by anecdotes from his long life in the service of jazz.

Students/under 26: 50% off

Our restaurant is open before the concert.

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

I 2020 ville Ed Thigpen være fyldt 90, og han hyldes derfor ved to eksklusive koncerter af nogle sine danske yndlingsmusikere. Denne aften vil den fornemme kvintet bestående af Carsten Dahl, Jesper Bodilsen, Tomas Franck, Anders Bergcrantz og Karsten Bagge fremføre musik helt i Thigpens ånd. Musikken, der er hentet fra Thigpens eget repertoire, vil ligeledes blive ledsaget af anekdoter fra hans lange liv i jazzens tjeneste.
