Katie Thiroux

“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.

After a summer with 10 weeks as artist in residence at Quincy Jones’ jazz club in Dubai, Katie Thiroux returns to Montmartre. This time, the outstanding American bassist and jazz singer will perform two nights with her trio. Thiroux is quickly on her way to become a big name on the international jazz scene. The debut album 'Introducing Katie Thiroux' from 2015 received 'Best Debut Album' prizes from several important media and her latest album 'Offbeat' was awarded one of the best albums in 2017 by Downbeat Magazine.

Thiroux has a refreshing and modern approach to jazz favorites and continues the swing tradition inspired by bass masters like Ray Brown and John Clayton. At the same time, she has a vocal finesse, which is both soft, remarkable and often surprising. In the words of the music icon Quincy Jones: "This girl is IT!". Experience her at Montmartre with countryman Matt Witek behind the drums and Danish Martin Schack at the grand piano.

Efter en sommer med 10 uger som artist in residence på Quincy Jones jazzklub i Dubai vender Katie Thiroux tilbage til Montmartre. Denne gang byder den fremragende amerikanske bassist og jazzsanger på hele to koncerter med sin trio. Med hastige skridt er Thiroux på vej til at blive et stort navn på den internationale jazzscene. Debutalbummet ’Introducing Katie Thiroux’ fra 2015 modtog ’Best Debut Album’-priser fra flere anerkendte medier, og hendes nyeste album ’Offbeat’ blev kåret som et af de bedste albums i 2017 af Downbeat Magazine.

Thiroux har en forfriskende og moderne tilgang til jazzfavoritter og viderefører swingtraditionens arv fra basmestre som Ray Brown og John Clayton. Samtidig har hun en vokal finesse, som både er blød, i ørefaldende og ofte overraskende. Som musik-ikonet Quincy Jones selv siger: ”This girl is IT!”. Oplev hende med landsmanden Matt Witek bag slagtøjet og danske Martin Schack ved flygelet.
