Ola Åkerman feat. Tony Kofi: Celebrating Ellington

“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.

Last winter Ola Åkerman met Tony Kofi in London during London Jazz Festival. They both agreed they wanted to collaborate on a project together and the fundamental basis for their upcoming concerts became the always timeless and modern music by the legend, Duke Ellington. Ola Åkerman is no blank sheet in Swedish jazz. His perpetual playful and easy style on the trombone has made Åkerman a favorite on the scene and his optimistic grooves are defining for the modern jazz. Likewise, Tony Kofis place in jazz is firmly anchored. The award-winning British jazz multi-instrumentalist has established himself as a great musician, teacher and composer, and the respect for Kofi in jazz circles is unconditional. On stage this evening is also Mathias Landæus Trio, who in addition to Mathias Landæus consists of Johnny Åman (bass) and Cornelia Nilsson (drums). A very well playing and recognized trio that this evening helps to pay tribute to “The Duke”. The evening will see both interpretations of classics as well as originals based on Duke Ellingtons’ compositions. Modern mainstream jazz with a point of departure in one of jazz’s biggest chapters.

Ola Åkerman træffede sidste vinter Tony Kofi i London under London Jazz Festival. På mødet blev de enige om at prøve kræfter med et fælles projekt. Og for at have et interessant udgangspunkt til deres fremtidige koncerter blev referencerammen Duke Ellingtons stadig topmoderne og tidløse lyd. Ola Åkerman er langt fra et ubeskrevet blad i svensk jazz. Hans evigt legende lette spillestil på trombonen har gjort Ola til en favorit på scenen, og hans optimistiske grooves er definerende for den moderne jazz. Toni Kofis plads i jazzen er ligeledes fast forankret. Den prisvindende multi-instrumentalist har etableret sig som både en stor musiker, læremester og komponist, og respekten for Kofi i jazzens kredse er ubetinget. På scenen denne aften står også Mathias Landæus Trio, der udover Mathias Landæus består af Johnny Åman (bass) og Cornelia Nilsson (trommer). En særdeles velspillende og anerkendt trio, der denne aften er med til at hylde ”The Duke”. Aftenen kommer til at byde på både gruppens egne fortolkninger af klassikere, ligesom der også vil blive spillet originaler med udgangspunkt i Duke Ellingtons kompositioner. Moderne mainstream jazz med udgangspunkt i en af jazzens helt store koryfæer.
