"The music spans from fragile sincerity, to the embracing and challenging, where strong solistic performances and great compositions invites the listener into a organic and lyrical universe...” These are the words of a jury of well-established Danish jazz-musicians, announcing I Just Came From The Moon as the winners of the national Ung Jazz (Young Jazz) competition in May, 2016. The band recently released its debut album, Hoax, which captures everything from country ballads to ostinato-based improvisation, and in this connection, IJCFTM is looking forward to visiting Montmartre.

”Spændvidden går fra det helt inderlige og skrøbelige, til det altomfavnende og udfordrende, hvor de stærke solistiske præstationer og gennemarbejdede kompositioner inviterer lytteren indenfor i et organisk og lyrisk univers..." Sådan lød det fra juryen, da aarhusianske I Just Came From The Moon vandt Ung Jazz 2016. Nu er bandet pladeaktuelle med debut-LP'en Hoax, der rummer alt fra countryballader til ostinatbaseret improvisation, og i den forbindelse lægges vejen forbi Montmartre.

One of the greatest vocalists in Danish Jazz music Sinne Eeg will be performing together with Jacob Christoffersen, Kaspar Vadsholt and Zoltan Csörsz. Sinne Eeg is considered to be one of the jazz Queens of Denmark alongside with Cæcilie Norby. She has won many awards including the prestigious Ben Webster Award in 2014 and is a two-time Danish Music Award winner for "Best Vocal Jazz Album", which she won in 2007 and 2010. In spite of currently living in the US as well as having performed all over the world, Sinne Eeg keeps the Scandinavian melancholy settled in her music. Her sound is modern and Nordic with clear references to legendary jazz singers such as Nancy Wilson and Benny Carter. Her concerts are known for being filled with humor, a charming presence and musical bonanza, which comes to show by playfully taking chances on stage.

En af Danmarks helt store jazzstemmer Sinne Eeg optræder sammen med Jacob Christoffersen, Kaspar Vadsholt og Zoltan Csörsz. Sinne Eeg regnes for at være en af Danmarks jazzdronninger sammen med Cæcilie Norby. Hun har vundet et utal af priser, bl.a. den prestigefyldte Ben Webster pris i 2014 og dobbelt Danish Music Awards vinder for "Bedste Jazz Vokal Album" i både 2007 og 2010. Selvom Sinne Eeg har optrådt verden over og p.t. er bosiddende i USA, så har hun holdt solidt fast i sit skandinaviske udtryk. Hendes musik er moderne og nordisk i tonen, men med klare referencer til legendariske jazzsangerinder som Nancy Wilson og Betty Carter. Hendes koncerter kendetegnes ved stort nærvær, humor, charmerende sceneoptræden og et enormt musikalsk overskud, som bl.a. kommer til udtryk ved, at der tages chancer på scenen.

Denmark and the world recently lost a great jazz artist, namely Horace Parlan. He was resident in Denmark from 1973, where he played in Montmartre for the first time, and at the same occasion met his wife Norma.

Horace based his unique piano style on the possibilities left available to him, after suffering polio as a child, but he made the most out of it, and became a master of voicings, and lyricism. His roots in the blues tradition were always present, and he remained active up until nearly 80 years old, when blindness made it impossible to continue.

Horace leaves behind a unique body of important contributions to the jazz world. He is famous for his work with Charles Mingus, Archie Shepp, and not the least his fine albums on Blue Note, as a bandleader in trio and larger formats.

For Danish jazz, he became a blessing, and the Danish Jazz world has benefitted from Horace’s contributions through all the years he stayed here. With his kind and gentle being, and permanent encouragement to us all, he became a sort of holy man. Until the end, he continued going out and listen to American and Danish jazz artists, and whenever he was in the room, there was a certain magic.

This memorial concert is a tribute to Horace and his fantastic music, left behind for us to play and enjoy. The line of musicians performing the program all had a connection to Horace in one way or another. They all represent the top of Danish Jazz having paid their dues through long careers. The “Love & Peace Band” and “US Four” will play, and other combinations will present both Jan Lundgren and Christina von Bülow. This will be a very special and unique afternoon concert, a tribute to Horace Parlan.

The concert is sponsored by Ben Webster Foundation and Paradise Jazz.

Denne mindekoncert er en tribut til Horace Parlan og hans fantastiske musik, efterladt til os så vi kan spille og nyde den. Rækken af musikere, som skal spille har alle haft en tilknytning til Horace. De repræsenterer toppen af dansk jazz, og har alle betalt deres lærepenge gennem lange karrierer. ”Love & Peace Band” og ”US Four” spiller, og andre kombinationer præsenterer Jan Lundgren og Christina von Bülow. Denne hyldest til Horace bliver en helt speciel og unik eftermiddagskoncert.

Danmark og verden har for nylig mistet den store jazzkunstner Horace Parlan. Han var bosiddende i Danmark fra 1973, hvor han spillede på Montmartre første gang og ved samme lejlighed mødte sin kone Norma.

Horace baserede sin unikke piano stil på, hvad der var tilbage af motoriske muligheder efter at have haft polio som barn, men han fik det bedste ud af det, og blev en mester i harmonisering og lyricisme. Hans rødder i bluesmusikken var altid nærværende, og han forblev aktiv op til 80 års alderen, hvor blindhed forhindrede en fortsættelse af karrieren.

Horace efterlader en unik arv til jazz verdenen. Han er berømt for sit arbejde med Charles Mingus, Archie Shepp og ikke mindst sine fremragende album på Blue Note, som leder af trioer og større grupper. For dansk jazz blev han en velsignelse, og den danske jazzverden har haft gavn af Horaces bidrag i alle de år han var her. Med sit milde og venlige sind og permanente opmuntring af os alle, blev han en slags hellig mand. Til det sidste blev han ved med at gå ud og lytte til amerikanske og danske jazz artister, og når han var tilstede opstod der altid en særlig magi.

Koncerten er sponsoreret af Ben Webster Foundation og Paradise Jazz.

Claire Martin is one of the most prominent jazz singers in the UK, and she has toured all over the world in the past 30 years. Jazz Times USA and US Magazine Journal has previously rated her among the finest female jazz singers in the world. She has won numerous awards, which include two British Jazz Awards within the category "Best Vocalist" in 2009 and 2010. She has collaborated with famous musicians such as Kenny Barron, Richard Rodney Bennett and Martin Taylor. We look forward to three nights in Jazzhus Montmartre with top-notch vocal jazz when Claire Martin will take the stage.

Den prominente jazzsangerinde Claire Martin holder en hyldestkoncert til ære for en af jazzens betydeligste sangerinder gennem tiderne, Ella Fitzgerald, som ville være fyldt 100 år i år. Claire Martin har i de sidste 30 år turneret over hele verden, og Jazz Times USA og US Magazine Journal har tidligere udnævnt hende til at være blandt de fineste kvindelige jazzsangerinder i verden. I blandt de adskillige priser, hun har vundet, finder man bl.a. syv British Jazz Awards, hvor to af dem er inden for kategorien "Best Vocalist" fra 2009 og 2010. Hun har i øvrigt arbejdet med kendte musikere som Kenny Barron, Richard Rodney Bennett og Martin Taylor. Hun får selvskab af landsmanden Gareth Williams på piano, der har været med til at komponere adskillige sange for Claire Martin. Vi ser frem til tre aftner med en jazz stemme af højeste karat, når Claire Martin indtager Montmartres scene, hvor hun udover Gareth Williams vil blive akkompagneret af Morten Ramsbøl på bas og Kristian Leth på trommer.

The young award-winning mouth harpist Mathias Heise who won the prestigious Ben Webster Award as the youngest person ever will pay tribute to Toots Thielemans with a memorial concert. Toots Thielemans has set his name in stone in jazz history with his unique skills on the chromatic harmonica. He managed to effortlessly blend bebop with modern jazz. His album "Footprints" from 1990 is a beautiful demonstration of his artistic vision, and with this album as a point of departure Mathias Heise is going to honour one of his role models as well as giving his take on the future direction of the chromatic harmonica. He will be accompanied by Henrik Gunde who is one of the most in-demand jazz pianists in Denmark, and Felix Moseholm who is one of the absolute biggest talents on the double bass. Lastly, drummer Andreas Svendsen who frequently tours with international jazz acts shall lay the foundation for a jazzy night.

Den unge prisbelønnede mundharpist Mathias Heise, der i marts 2017 modtog den prestigefyldte Ben Webster Prisen som den yngste nogensinde, hylder Toots Thielemans med en mindekoncert. Toots Thielemans har sat massive fodspor i jazzhistorien med sin unikke håndtering af den kromatiske mundharpe. På ganske egen hånd formåede han at forene dette besynderlige instrument med bebop og moderne jazz. Hans album "Footprints" fra 1990 er et flot portræt af hans mangfoldige kunstneriske væsen, og med udgangspunkt i disse 'fodspor' vil Mathias Heise ære den gamle mester, men også give et bud på den kromatiske mundharpes næste skridt. Til formålet har han samlet et eminent hold af musikere: Henrik Gunde, en af Danmarks mest efterspurgte jazzpianister, Felix Moseholm, der med sine kun 18 år er et af de store nye håb inden for den stolte danske bastradition og Andreas Svendsen, der har taget sin master på Manhatten School of Music og jævnligt turnerer med store internationale jazznavne.

Mathias Heise Quadrillion: FuRoJazz!

The 23-year-old Mathias Heise has through his many accolades and extraordinary performances attracted a lot of attention both domestically and abroad. Besides mastering the difficult chromatic harmonica, he is an exceptional composer and pianist. At the mere age of 20, he was awarded as the world?s best on the chromatic harmonica at the World Harmonica Festival in Germany in 2013, and in 2015 he was awarded as the new best jazz act in Denmark. Immense talent surrounds him in his band Mathias Heise Quadrillion, which consist of other young talented jazz players, namely Mads Christiansen, David Vang and Aksel Stadel Borum. Mathias Heise Quadrillion has managed to create a very unique, personal and contemporary soundscape, which goes beyond any specific genre. The band has decided to label this genre blurring music as FuRoJazz. "Fu" stands for future, funk and fusion, while "Ro" stands for rock, and then of course jazz. Thus, the Mathias Heise Quadrillion ear catching compositions is a combination of jazzy harmonies and improvisation with rock and funk music. It is lined up to be a colourful and sophisticated night in the house!

23-årige Mathias Heise har med sin unge alder, sine mange fornemme anerkendelser og flotte præstationer tiltrukket meget opmærksomhed omkring sit virtuose spil i både ind- og udland. Han modtog i 2016 "Kronprinsparrets Stjernedryspris", en pris, der gives til yngre danske kunstnere med et helt særligt talent. Udover at mestre den svære kromatiske mundharpe er han en eminent dygtig komponist og pianist. Som kun 20-årig blev Mathias Heise i 2013 verdensmester i kromatisk mundharpe ved "World Harmonica Festival" i Tyskland, og i 2015 blev han kåret som "Årets Nye Jazzstjerne" i Danmark. Han omgiver sig med et yderst kompetent og voldswingende fusionshold i bandet Mathias Heise Quadrillion, der består af jævnaldrende og lige så talentfulde musikere i form af Mads Christiansen, David Vang og Aksel Stadel Borum. Mathias Heise Quadrillion har formået at skabe et meget unik og personligt nutidigt udtryk, der falder uden for de gængse genrebetegnelser. Bandet har derfor taget konsekvensen og opfundet en helt ny genre, de har døbt FuRoJazz. "Fu" for future, funk og fusion, "Ro" for rock og så selvfølgelig jazz, der hverken kan eller skal forkortes. I Mathias Heise Quadrillions iørefaldende kompositioner kombineres jazzens harmonier og improvisation med rockens og funkmusikkens. Det bliver farverigt og euforisk med elegancen og det sofistikerede som omdrejningspunkt.

Det unge fremadstormende danske mundharpefænomen, og verdensmester i kromatisk mundharpe ved mesterskaberne i Tyskland i 2013, Mathias Heise og hans gamle lærer, og multiinstrumentalist, Jacob Venndt har skabt en mindekoncert til ære for deres store instrumentale forbillede, Toots Thielemans. Toots har vist generationer af musikelskere, hvad det lille instrument er i stand til. Mundharpekoryfæet har givet verden ufatteligt mange musikalske gaver, og nu går to generationer af danske kromatiske mundharpespillere sammen om at hylde og mindes ham i en spektakulær trio-form i selskab med en af Danmarks bedste swing-guitarister Regin Fuhlendorf!
