Andrea Motis Scandinavian Quartet

ANDREA MOTIS (Trumpet/Vocal / ES)Ignasi Terraza (Piano / ES)Jesper Bodilsen (Bass / DK)Martin Andersen (Drums / DK)

Andrea Motis has, at the age of only 23, taken the jazz world by storm. The young singer and trumpeter, who also plays magnificent alto sax, will guest Montmartre and Copenhagen for the first time in the company of pianist Ignasi Terraza and the terrific rythm-team Jesper Bodilsen and Martin Andersen. With over eight praised records and a maturity and experience from travelling and performing all over the world, Motis moves with a rare elegance through the standard repertoire of jazz as well as her own compositions. On her latest record “Do Outro Lade Do Azul” – a party made up by Brazilian Bossanova and Samba – this new star on the Spanish jazz sky shows a new side of her impressive musicianship.

Andrea Motis har trods sine kun 23 år taget jazzverdenen med storm. Den unge fremadstormende sangerinde og trompetist, som også spiller helt forrygende altsax, gæster nu for første gang Købehavn og Montmartre i selskab med hendes faste pianist, Ignasi Terraza, og det forrygende rytmegruppe-team Jesper Bodilsen og Martin Andersen. Med 8 anmelderroste albums i baggagen og en modenhed og erfaring, som over de sidste år har kunnet opleves på klubber og festivaller verden over, bevæger Motis sig med sjælden elegance igennem jazzens repertoire af standards og hendes egne kompositioner. På hendes seneste album ”Do Outro Lade Do Azul” - et festfyrværkeri med brasiliansk bossanova og samba - viser denne nye stjerne på Spaniens jazzhimmel en ny side af sit imponerende musikerskab.

Moussa Diallo Trio: Musikalske eventyr fra Mali

Moussa Diallo (Bass/Vocal/Narrator / DK)Preben Carlsen (Guitar / DK)Salieu Dibba (Percussion/Vocal / SE)

Glæd dig til sangen om den lille mariehøne Kimi Komo, som er baseret på en historie, Moussas bedstemor fortalte ham en dag, han ikke havde lyst til at gå i skole. Moussa synger også om Yolo og den forfængelige prinsesse, om pigen Fanta Cissé og historien om venskabet mellem hanen og firbenet. Sangene bygger på de afrikanske eventyr, som Moussa fik fortalt af sin bedstemor, da han var barn i Mali. Det er sjove historier, du også kan blive lidt klogere af, og musikerne spiller på spændende afrikanske instrumenter, bl.a. koraen, et strengeinstrument i familie med harpen med en smuk lyd. Man får helt lyst til at danse blot ved tanken om Moussas eventyr og sange!

Blonde Bass

Ida Hvid (Bass/Vocal / DK)Kristin Korb (Bass/Vocal / US)Helle Marstrand (Bass/Vocal / DK)

In the bass family, it isn’t uncommon to get together to play duos or other ensemble pieces for fun. Publicly, though, it is rare for bass players to be the entire ensemble. Ida Hvid, Kristin Korb, and Helle Marstrand knew each other for years as established bassists and band leaders in Denmark and out in the world. Jamming together one day, they had so much fun they decided to follow the groove deeper, added vocals, percussion, original songs, and came up with a name: Blonde Bass. Blonde Bass mixes jazz standards, original compositions, bass tributes, and 3-part vocal harmonies to make a show that is entertaining, engaging, and unique. Truly, this is a celebration of sisterhood in the groove.

Students / under 26: 112,5 DKK

Bassister elsker at hænge ud sammen, men i jazzverdenen spiller de sjældent sammen – som regel spiller de i hver sit orkester. Så selv om jazz-bassister mødes og spiller lidt duo eller ensemble, sker det sjældent i fuld offentlighed. Ida Hvid, Kristin Korb og Helle Marstrand kendte hinanden som etablerede bassister i ind- og udland. En dag, ved en meget vellykket bas-jam, besluttede de at udbygge det gode groove med udvidede vokal-arrangementer, percussion og originalt materiale. Og dermed blev Blonde Bass skabt. Blonde Bass blander jazz standards, originale kompositioner, bass tributes og 3-stemmige korarrangementer – og præsenterer hermed et show, der er underholdende, medrivende og helt unikt. En sand hæder til et groovy søsterskab.

Camille Bertault/Thomas Fonnesbæk

“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.
Camille Bertault (Vocal / FR)Thomas Fonnesbæk (Bass / DK)

Once in a while it happens that a new voice emerges, with the ability to captivate a whole world. A voice with qualities so unique and so breathtaking that everyone must give in and indulge in the melodiousness. This is what happened a few years ago when the young French singer Camille Bertault uploaded some homemade videos onto Youtube. Here, she is singing in such a unisonally manner with iconic instrumental solos, performed by artists such as John Coltrane, Hermeto Pascoal, Cory Henry and more. Camille Bertaults crystal clear voice, perfect phrasings and endearing charm on these homemade recordings made her a Youtube-darling in no time and we have all been waiting for a chance to hear her sing live. Luckily, we have succeeded to convince this French nightingale to come to Denmark and perform as a duo with the Danish bassist Thomas Fonnesbæk. An instrumentalist whose sense of the bass’ opportunities seems endless. He instinctively chooses the correct tones at the correct moments and his ability to ’melt together’ with other musicians is very unique. What the two musical talents decide to present together is not to be known yet, but one thing is for certain; their musical playfulness and great abilities to improvise open the doors to endless possibilities.

Det sker engang i mellem, at en ny stemme dukker op, som betager en hel verden. En stemme, hvis kvaliteter er så unikke og så betagende, at alle må give efter og svøbe sig i vellyd. Det var, hvad der skete, da den unge franske sangerinde Camille Bertault for nogle år siden lagde nogle hjemmeoptagelser op på YouTube. Her synger hun unisont med ikoniske instrumentale soli, spillet af mestre som John Coltrane, Hermeto Pascoal, Cory Henry m.fl. Camille Bertaults krystalklare stemme, perfekte fraseringsevne og indtagende charme på disse hjemmeoptagelser gjorde hende på ingen tid til YouTube-darling, og vi har alle sukket efter en mulighed for at høre hende synge live. Det er lykkedes at overtale denne franske nattergal til at komme til Danmark og optræde i duoformat med den danske bassist Thomas Fonnesbæk. En instrumentalist, hvis fornemmelse for bassens muligheder synes uendelige. Han vælger instinktivt de retter toner på de rette tidspunkter i musikken og hans evne til at smelte sammen med andre musikere er ganske unik. Hvad de to naturtalenter beslutter sig for at fremføre sammen vides ikke p.t., men et er sikkert; deres musikalske legesyge og storslåede improvisationsevner åbner dørene for utallige muligheder.

Vivian Buczek feat. Gerard Presencer: A Woman’s Voice

“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.
Vivian Buczek (Vocal / SE)Gerard Presencer (Trumpet / UK)Martin Sjöstedt (Piano / SE)Jesper Bodilsen (Bass / DK)Morten Lund (Drums / DK)

The Swedish jazzsinger Vivian Buczek has with her newest release ”A Woman’s Voice” put emphasis on the woman’s journey through life; from childhood to youth to adult life and old age. Buczek’s inspirations come from the classic jazz female vocalists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Abbey Lincoln, Carmen McRae, Shirley Horn, Sarah Vaughn and of course Monica Zetterlund. This evening, Montmartre will host the presentation of this record release, where Vivian Buczek is accompanied by a super-team consisting of the same Danish, Swedish and English musicians who is backing her on her record. Look forward to a concert with a vocalist who knows and comprehends the tradition and who proudly carries the torch of female jazz singers. Henrik Wolsgaard-Iversen writes in his review of Buczeks previous record: ”Very high musical quality, new paths using old routes. Recommended. Warmly.”

Den svenske jazzsangerinde Vivian Buczek har med sin nyeste udgivelse ”A Woman’s Voice” sat fokus på kvindens rejse gennem livet; fra barndom over ungdom til voksenlivet og alderdommen. Buczeks inspirationer er de klassiske fra jazzens mangfoldighed af kvindelige vokalister; Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Abbey Lincoln, Carmen McRae, Shirley Horn, Sarah Vaughan og selvfølgelig Monica Zetterlund. Her lægger Montmartre scene til præsentationen af denne udgivelse, hvor Vivian Buczek akkompagneres af et superhold af de samme danske, svenske og engelske musikere, der backer hende på CD’en. Se frem til en koncert med en vokalist, der kender og behersker traditionen, og som stolt fører den lysende fakkel videre. Henrik Wolsgaard-Iversen skriver i sin anmeldelse af Buczeks forrige CD bl.a. dette: ”Meget høj musikalitet, nye stier ad gamle ruter. Anbefales. Varmt.”

“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.
Veronica Mortensen (Vocal / DK)Mads Bærentzen (Piano / DK)Kristor Brødsgaard (Bass / DK)Janus Templeton (Drums / DK)

Singer/composer Veronica Mortensen has placed herself in the tension field between jazz and singer/songwriter as a concept. Her beautiful and well-conceived songs belong to the second category, but her vocal output definitely has its outspring in jazz. And that actually is a highly satisfying fusion. Veronica Mortensen has been featured soloist with big bands in many countries, she has five releases in her own name on her resumé and her music is often played on various jazz-radiostations. On this occasion she is heard with her own band, who conceives her beautiful and challenging songs the best way possible.

Sangerinden/komponisten Veronica Mortensen ligger i spændingsfeltet mellem jazz og begrebet singer/songwriter. Hendes meget smukke og gennemkomponerede sange peger hen i sidstnævnte kategori, mens hendes vokal-udtryk er udpræget hentet fra jazzen. Og det er faktisk en yderst tilfredsstillende fusion. Veronica Mortensen har været solist med big bands i mange lande, hun har fem udgivelser i eget navn bag sig og er en ofte spillet kunstner på diverse radiostationer. Her høres hun med eget band, der formidler hendes smukke og spændende sange på bedste vis.

Hania Rani

Hania Rani (Piano / PL)

Hania Rani is a pianist, composer and musician who splits her life between Warsaw, where she makes her home, and Berlin where she studied and often works. Her compositions for solo piano were born out of a fascination with the piano as an instrument, and her desire to interpret its sound and harmonic possibilities in their entirety and in her own way. As she says herself: “I think I am the same as an artist and as a person. Music is my way of communication and I see the art, the music as a whole thing, with no borders, divisions, or even genres.” She definitely a versatile composer who has written for strings, piano, voice and electronics and has collaborated with the likes of Christian Löffler, Dobrawa Czocher and Hior Chronik.

Hania Rani er en pianist, komponist og musikere, som splitter sin tid mellem Warszawa, hvor hendes hjem er, og Berlin, hvor hun har studeret og ofte arbejder. Hendes klaverkompositioner er affødt af fascinationen af klaveret som instrument og en lyst til at fortolke dets lyd og harmoniske muligheder i deres helhed og på hendes helt særegne måde. Som hun selv siger: ”Jeg tror, at jeg er den samme både som kunster og som person. Musik er min måde at kommunikere på, og jeg ser kunsten og musikken som en helhed uden grænser, opdeling og endda også uden genre.” Hun er en alsidig komponist og har skrevet musik til både strengeinstrumenter, klaver, vokal og electronics og har samarbejdet med bl.a. Christian Löffler, Dobrawa Czocher og Hior Chronik.

Paul Marinaro/Jan Lundgren Trio:100 Years w. Nat King Cole

“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.
Paul Marinaro (Vocal / US)Jan Lundgren (Piano / SE)Mattias Svensson (Bass / SE)Zoltán Csörsz (Drums / HU)

Acclaimed vocalist Paul Marinaro is dubbed as having “one of the most beautiful vocal instruments in the business today”. Over the course of his career, Marinaro has performed to sold-out crowds at some of the most recognizable rooms in jazz music, including Chicago’s Green Mill and Jazz Showcase, Birdland, and Jazz at the Lincoln Center. Known both for his ability to swing hard and leave you breathless with his lush intricacies and unmistakable baritone, Marinaro brings his own voice both to standards you know and love as well as the hidden gems he manages to unearth and bring to life. For these concerts, he’s joined on stage by a supertrio led by Jan Lundgren. The concerts are presented by Céline Peterson, daughter of Oscar Peterson, and pays tribute to Nat King Cole, who would have turned 100 years old in 2019.

Students / under 26: Half price

Her kommer en af USA's fineste sangere i den klassiske croonertradition. Paul Marinaro fra Chicago er en etableret solist i sit hjemland og er fast gæst i USA's førende jazzklubber og festivaler. Hans fraseringer går rent ind og sætter sig fast i lytterens sind, ganske som hans forgængere i genren; Sinatra, Bennett, Tormé m.fl., har gjort det. Paul Marinaro fortolker klassikerne, og han finder ukendte musikalske ædelstene frem, pudser dem af og giver dem nyt liv. Her høres han som solist med en supertrio anført af Jan Lundgren. Koncerten præsenteres i samarbejde med Céline Peterson, datter af Oscar Peterson, og er en hyldest til Nat King Cole, der ville være blevet 100 år i 2019.

Papa Kotji præsenterer: Django – en sand historie!

Jesper Lund Jakobsen (Basbalajka/Historiefortælling / DK)Jacob Kolkur (Guitar / DK)Andreas Ugorskij (Guitar / DK)

Kom med på en veloplagt udflugt med sigøjnerjazz trioen Papa Kotji, når de med fuld fart i mol fortolker den fantastiske historie om den geniale og stilskabende mesterguitarist, Django Reinhardt. Django Reinhardt kunne spille så hurtigt, at hans fingre brændte. Og du skal også være med! Så husk at medbringe din luftguitar. Men pas nu på, at du ikke spiller så hurtigt, at dine fingre smelter! Papa Kotji er en stærkt sammentømret trio, der har turnéret med deres koncertfortælling om Django i 6 år i Sverige og Danmark. I 2018 udgav Papa Kotji LP’en Macho Drom, som betyder ‘En herre god rejse’ – kom med på sådan én, når Papa Kotji spiller koncert på Montmartre!

Balvig/Bülow/Christensen

“Upcoming” is Montmartre’s series of talent concerts where upcoming artists test the boundaries of jazz.
Christian Balvig (Piano / DK)Frederik Bülow (Drums / DK)Adrian Christensen (Bass / DK)

Balvig/Bülow/Christensen started off as musical playmates six years ago. At that point, the goal was to investigate jazz and improv. This resulted in an extremely close teamwork with a completely unique sound. The trios debut album “Associated With Water” has been praised to the skies, by London Jazz News and Raidió Teilifís Éireann (Ireland's National Public Service Broadcaster) amongst others. The trio’s music moves fluently around jazz, classical and folklore and is a poetic contribution to the Nordic jazzscene. It contains emotional, impressionistic colors, Balkan-inspired bass, modern jazz themes and at times ”Chopin-like” rubato-islands. To find a new jazz direction is a main focus for this trio. To develop new, small ”islands” with musical ingenuity and interaction while also making poetic and energetic choices of improv that fits the given composition in an unpretentious manner.

Students / under 26: half price

Balvig/Bülow/Christensen startede som musikalske legekammerater for seks år siden. Målet var at udforske jazz og improvisation. Dette resulterede i et ekstremt stærkt samspil med en helt unik lyd. Trioens debutalbum “Associated With Water” er blevet rost til skyerne, blandt andet i London Jazz News og Raidió Teilifís Éireann (Ireland's National Public Service Broadcaster). Trioens musik bevæger sig flydende rundt i jazz, klassisk og folklore og er et poetisk bidrag til den nordiske jazzscene. Den indeholder emotionelle impressionistiske farver, balkaninspirerede basgange, moderne jazztemaer og til tider Chopin-lignende rubato-øer. At finde en ny jazzretning er et hovedfokus for denne trio. At udvikle nye, små "øer" med musikalsk opfindsomhed og interaktion samt at lave poetiske og energiske improvisationsvalg, der passer til den givne sammensætning på en uprætentiøs måde.

60 years with Alex Riel: Riel/Mazur/Løkke/Pasborg/Tuxen

“Upcoming” is Montmartre’s series of talent concerts where upcoming artists test the boundaries of jazz.
Alex Riel (Drums / DK)Marilyn Mazur (Drums / Perc / DK)Birgit Løkke (Drums / Perc / DK)Stefan Pasborg (Drums / Perc / DK)Jeppe Tuxen (Keys / DK)

If you could go back 60 years in time you would have the opportunity to experience Alex Riel at his first gig. Since then we have had the great pleasure of his sublime drumming. Not least at Montmartre, where he was the preferred Danish drummer of many of the great Americans visiting. We are celebrating his 60 years in the industry with four evenings in three widely different constellations, giving audiences the opportunity to enjoy Danish jazz's unconditionally greatest drummer ever. Alex Riel's genius in all three sets is allowed to sparkle, and he is constantly challenged by similarly playful and competent musicians.

The first night is devoted to percussion and organist Jeppe Tuxen will be the only one in charge of the harmonies. Tuxen has been praised for his ability to play the keys in a way that reminds you of the time, the Hammond organ and the rotating Leslie-speaker made jazz ultra-funky. This constellation will furthermore be accompanied by Stefan Pasborg who has a great sense of timing and the ways he uses the relatively simple setup seems endless. We will also have the pleasure of having Marilyn Mazur on percussion. Mazur has been called ”a rhythmic colorist who paints the music with her tremendous percussion skills” – the perfect addition to this constellation. Last but not least, Birgit Løkke will be joining the stage this night. She is known as being the percussionist of the band Savage Rose and has since played in many different orchestra and theatre settings.

Går vi 60 år tilbage i tiden kunne man opleve Alex Riel til hans første spillejob. Siden da har vi haft den store fornøjelse af hans sublime trommespil. Ikke mindst på Montmartre, hvor han var den fortrukne danske trommeslager hos mange af de store amerikanere. Vi fejrer hans 60 år i branchen med fire aftener i tre vidt forskellige konstellationer, hvor publikum får mulighed for at nyde dansk jazz’ ubetinget største trommeslager nogensinde. Alex Riels genialitet får i alle tre opstillinger lov til at funkle, og han bliver konstant udfordret af tilsvarende legesyge og kompetente musikere.

Denne aften er helliget slagtøjet, og organist Jeppe Tuxen står ene mand om at lægge harmonierne. Tuxen er blevet rost for sin evne til at spille på tangenterne på en måde, der vækker minder om dengang hammondorglet og den roterende Leslie-højtaler, gjorde jazzmusikken ultrafunky. Denne konstellation vil ligeledes akkompagneres af Stefan Pasborg, som bag trommerne har en uforlignelig sans for timing, og måderne han bruger det relativt simple setup på er tilsyneladende uendelig. Vi også glæden af at have Marilyn Mazur med på percussion. Mazur er blevet kaldt ”en rytmisk kolorist, der farver musikken med sit enorme forråd af perkussion” – og altså den perfekte tilføjelse til denne konstellation. Sidst, men ikke mindst, vil også Birgit Løkke berige os med sit talent denne aften. Hun er tidligere perkussionist i bandet Savage Rose og har siden spillet i mange orkester- og teatersammenhænge.

This second night we’ll have the classic Montmartre-trio setting on stage. Here, Riel will be accompanied by Carsten Dahl on the piano. With out-of-this-world improvisation skills, two solo records, and a DMA Jazz-award for the best record of the year in 2004 and 2011, there are plenty to look forward to. We will also be joined by bassist Bo Stief, who might be the most versatile Danish bassist ever and with a 50-year career within music. A great night to come!

If you could go back 60 years in time you would have the opportunity to experience Alex Riel at his first gig. Since then we have had the great pleasure of his sublime drumming. Not least at Montmartre, where he was the preferred Danish drummer of many of the great Americans visiting. We are celebrating his 60 years in the industry with four evenings in three widely different constellations, giving audiences the opportunity to enjoy Danish jazz's unconditionally greatest drummer ever. Alex Riel's genius in all three sets is allowed to sparkle, and he is constantly challenged by similarly playful and competent musicians.

These two nights two virtuoso giants of jazz will join the celebrating of Alex Riel; Norwegian Arild Andersen and American Jerry Bergonzi, who will definitely take the music to even higher altitudes. Carsten Dahl will also be joining on the piano this night. With his out-of-this-world improvisation skills, two solo records, and a DMA Jazz-award for the best record of the year in 2004 and 2011, there are plenty to look forward to. And one thing is for sure: It will not be boring!

Går vi 60 år tilbage i tiden kunne man opleve Alex Riel til hans første spillejob. Siden da har vi haft den store fornøjelse af hans sublime trommespil. Ikke mindst på Montmartre, hvor han var den fortrukne danske trommeslager hos mange af de store amerikanere. Vi fejrer hans 60 år i branchen med fire aftener i tre vidt forskellige konstellationer, hvor publikum får mulighed for at nyde dansk jazz’ ubetinget største trommeslager nogensinde. Alex Riels genialitet får i alle tre opstillinger lov til at funkle, og han bliver konstant udfordret af tilsvarende legesyge og kompetente musikere.

Disse to aftener vil to kæmpe virtuoser deltage i fejringen af Alex Riel; nemlig norske Arild Andersen, samt ikke mindst amerikanske Jerry Bergonzi. De to vil uden tvivl løfte musikken op i de højere luftlag. Carsten Dahl vil ligeledes akkompagnere på klaver. Med hans improvisation i yderste konsekvens, to soloplader og en DMA Jazz-pris for årets bedste plade i 2004 og 2011 er der masser at glæde sig til, når han tilslutter sig denne konstellation. Og ét er sikkert for disse aftener: det bliver ikke kedeligt!
