Ben Webster was a frequent presence at Jazzhus Montmartre in the 60s and one of the most prominent jazz figures in Copenhagen back then. Alex Riel will pay a tribute to the American saxophone legend. For over 60 years has Alex Riel enriched the jazz audience in particular, being one of the most important drummers in Europe. He has played with jazz legends such as Bill Evans, Dexter Gordon and said Ben Webster. Jesper Thilo, Heine Hansen and Jesper Lundgaard will accompany Alex Riel for his Ben Webster tribute. Jesper Thilo has previously been compared to Ben Webster when it comes to playing style. Phenomenal jazz awaits.

Ben Webster spillede flittigt på Jazzhus Montmartre tilbage i 60'erne og var et af symbolerne på den amerikanske jazzindvandring i København dengang. Hans musikalske arv vil blive hyldet med Alex Riel i førersædet. I snart 60 år har Alex Riel beriget især jazzpublikummet, som en af Europas mest betydningsfulde trommeslagere. Foruden sin medvirken i Savage Rose, har han spillet med jazzlegender som Bill Evans, Dexter Gordon og Ben Webster. Sidstnævntes musikalske virke vil blive hyldet sammen med Jesper Thilo, Heine Hansen og Jesper Lundgaard. Netop Jesper Thilo er før blevet sammenlignet med Ben Webster, når det kommer til spillestil. Fænomenal jazz er i vente. BEMÆRK: Pga sygdom er Bo Stief trådt til som bassist.

The Swedish jazz pianist and artistic leader of Montmartre play with a superb poetic sensitivity that goes straight to the heart of the listener. He lifts the legacy of Sweden's great pianist, Jan Johansson, like no other. And when he interprets Jan Johanssons musical legacy, it is with great respect and curiosity. These tribute concerts are primarily based on the music from "Jazz på Svenska", "Jazz på Ryska" og "Jazz på Ungerska". The harmonies are retained but Lundgren has certainly put his own imprint on the music. With Mattias Svensson, who has also been a regular part of Jan Lundgren Trio, and the string quartet something additional unique is added. Jan Lundgren opens this year's Copenhagen Jazz Festival at Jazzhus Montmartre with a seductive and unforgettable concert experience, which has been a great success with sold-out houses around Europe.

Den svenske jazzpianist og kunstneriske chef for Montmartre spiller med en uovertruffen poetisk følsomhed, der går lige i hjertet på lytteren. Han løfter arven fra Sveriges store pianist, Jan Johansson, som ingen anden. Og når han fortolker Jan Johanssons værker, så er det med stor omhu og nysgerrighed. Disse hyldestkoncerter er primært baseret på musikken fra "Jazz på Svenska", "Jazz på Ryska" og "Jazz på Ungerska". Grundharmonikken er bevaret, men Lundgren har bestemt også sat sit eget aftryk på musikken. Med Mattias Svensson, som også har været en fast del af Jan Lundgren Trio, og strygekvartetten tilføjes der yderligere noget helt unikt. Jan Lundgren åbner ballet til dette års Copenhagen Jazz Festival hos Jazzhus Montmartre med en forførende og uforglemmelig koncertoplevelse, som har været en stor succes med udsolgte huse rundt i Europa.

The extremely talented and versatile drummer Morten Lund brings together a stellar team of musical friends to this year's Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2017. Already as a 6-year-old Morten Lund sat for first time on the drum chair and beat rhythms and bars. It was the start of a career which has over 60 releases as a sideman, critically acclaimed albums and concerts around the world in the constellation with Stefano Bollani and Jesper Bodilsen and not least numerous concerts at Jazzhus Montmartre. Besides the three major Danish jazz talents; Jesper Riis, Jacob Christoffersen and Morten Ramsbøl, Morten Lund also invited the Italian saxfonist Max Ionata, which by critics has been credited for pushing the boundaries of jazz. This constellation is guaranteed to showcase a playful approach to the musical works of the great legends of jazz.

Den yderst talentfulde og alsidige trommeslager Morten Lund samler et stjernespækket hold af musikalske venner til dette års Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2017. Allerede som 6-årig sad Morten Lund første gang på trommestolen og slog rytmer og takter. Det var starten på en karriere, som bl.a. tæller mere end 60 udgivelser som sideman, kritikerroste albums og koncerter i hele verden i konstellationen med Stefano Bollani og Jesper Bodilsen og ikke mindst utallige koncerter på Jazzhus Montmartre. Udover de tre store danske jazztalenter Jesper Riis, Jacob Christoffersen og Morten Ramsbøl har Morten Lund også inviteret den italienske saxfonist Max Ionata, som af kritikere er blevet krediteret for at skubbe grænserne i jazzen. Denne konstellation vil med garanti fremvise en legesyg tilgang til de musikalske værker af jazzens legender.

The Danish guitarist and composer Jakob Bro has won the Danish Music Awards for best jazz album several times, most recently in 2015 with the album "Gefion". He will perform with his trio, which consists of bassist Thomas Morgan and drummer Joey Baron. In September last year Jakob Bro released the critically acclaimed album "Streams" on ECM Records. ECM-founder and producer Manfred Eicher har previously mentioned that Thomas Morgan is one of the most interesting and talented bassists he has heard. The American avant-garde drummer Joey Baron was a member of the Bill Frisell Band for a decade and has played with an impressive list of musicians including Dizzy Gillespie, Chet Baker, John Scofield and Stan Getz. It is truly going to be a jazz tour de force, when this trio takes over the Montmartre stage during this year's Copenhagen Jazz Festival.
