Carsten Dahl Trinity

“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.
Carsten Dahl (Piano / DK)Nils 'Bosse' Davidsen (Bass / DK)Stefan Pasborg (Drums / DK)

A tough and raw trio constellation with the master pianist Carsten Dahl as the leader. Dahl brings one of the country’s most attentive bassists Nils ‘Bosse’ Davidsen and the ultra-dynamic drummer Stefan Pasborg. And the music? Aggressive, flexible, playful, right on the spot and of course tough and raw.

It’s trio music that doesn’t exist elsewhere, which constantly develops and digs out new musical expressions, which no one else has been in the proximity of. In other words: Music going forward with solid roots in and great respect for the already existing. The concerts are based on their recently release "Mirrors Within", released in December 2020 on Storyville Records. The dogma here was to record in a single run without talking to each other.

Her ses mesterpianisten Carsten Dahl som leder af en sine mest skrappe og rå konstellationer. Med sig i denne trio har Dahl en af landets mest opmærksomme bassister Nils ’Bosse’ Davidsen og den ultra-dynamiske trommeslager Stefan Pasborg. Og musikken? Aggressiv, fleksibel, legende, lige-på og selvfølgelig skrap og rå.

Det er triomusik, som ikke findes tilsvarende nogen steder, som til stadighed udvikler sig og finder nye musikalske udtryk frem, som ingen andre har været i nærheden af. Med andre ord: Fremtidig musik med solide rødder i og stor respekt for det allerede eksisterende. Koncerterne tager udgangspunkt i deres nyligt udsendte udgivelse "Mirrors Within" som udkom i december 2020 hos Storyville Records. Dogmet her var at indspille ud i en lang køre uden at tale sammen.

Seamus Blake (Tenor Sax / UK)Jesper Bodilsen (Bass / DK)Martin Andersen (Drums / DK)

This evening we’ll have a visit by the wonderful saxophonist and composer Seamus Blake. Blake is considered one of the great saxophonists of his generation. In recent years, he has unfolded his great musicianship as leader and co-leader of numerous ensembles and has released 13 albums in his own name. His collaborations with e.g., John Scofield, Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter have given him a place in the absolute international jazz elite.

The trio with Jesper Bodilsen and Martin Andersen saw the light of day on an international tour in the summer of 2019. Luckily for us, they are coming through Montmartre on this tour. This is a power trio and a cornucopia of intense interplay for everyone who loves high-class improvised music.

Denne aften får vi fint besøg af den vidunderlige saxofonist og komponist Seamus Blake. Blake betragtes som en af de store saxofonister i sin generation. Han har i de senere år udfoldet sit mageløse musikerskab som leder af talrige ensembler og har udgivet 13 albums i eget navn. Hans samarbejder med bl.a. John Scofield, Herbie Hancock og Wayne Shorter har givet ham en plads i den absolutte internationale jazzelite.

Trioen med Jesper Bodilsen og Martin Andersen så dagens lys på en international turné i sommeren 2019, og nu får vi æren af et besøg på Montmartre. Det er en ægte powertrio og et overflødighedshorn af intenst samspil for alle, som holder af improviseret musik af høj klasse.

Viktoria Tolstoy: Stations

“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.
Viktoria Tolstoy (Vocal / SE)Krister Jonsson (Guitar / SE)Joel Lyssarides (Piano / SE)Mattias Svensson (Bass / SE)Rasmus Kihlberg (Drums / SE)

International media characterizes Viktoria Tolstoy’s voice as crystal clear and unpretentious and natural, and the Swedish singer has also succeeded in manifesting herself as one of the most successful jazz singers in Scandinavia since her debut release in 1996. The new album “Stations” from 2020 is based on her own life story and deals with her strong connection to the home country Sweden and her search for her Russian heritage. Tolstoy elegantly balances genres as jazz, pop, and folk music in an emotional – at times melodramatic – musical universe. Accompanied by her regular band and the rising star Joel Lyssarides, she will present a musical repertoire consisting of both interpretations of newer Scandinavian music and also classical jazz standards.

Internationale medier karakteriserer Viktoria Tolstoys stemme som krystalklar samt uprætentiøs og naturlig, og den svenske sanger har da også formået at manifestere sig som en af de mest succesfulde jazzsangere i Skandinavien siden hendes debutudgivelse i 1996. Det nye album ”Stations” fra 2020 tager udgangspunkt i hendes egen livshistorie og omhandler den stærke tilknytning til hjemlandet Sverige samt hendes søgen efter de russiske rødder. Tolstoy balancerer elegant genrer som jazz, pop og folkemusik i et emotionelt – til tider melodramatisk – musikalsk univers. Hun bliver her akkompagneret af hendes faste gruppe samt jazz-stjerneskuddet Joel Lyssarides og vil præsentere et musikalsk repertoire, der både byder på fortolkninger af nyere skandinavisk musik og klassiske jazzstandarder.

Jacob Lindberg (Drums / SE)Oilly Wallace (Alto Sax / DK)Zier Romme (Piano / DK)Matthias Petri (Bass / DK)

Jacob Lindberg is one of the new exciting names on the Danish jazz scene, who you really must keep an eye on. The young Swede has in short time established himself as a competent sideman, but this evening he will be leading his very own quartet at Jazzhus Montmartre.

The drummer has assembled an exemplary quartet consisting of some of the great young jazz musicians in Denmark: Oilly Wallace, Zier Romme and Matthias Petri, who all, like Lindberg himself, are setting their mark in the jazz world. With this team, it’s guaranteed that the music's trembling swing will bring the crowd to a boil, and the band's joy of playing will be felt all the way down to the back rows of the audience.

Simon Spang-Hanssen Epistrophy Septet

“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.
Simon Spang-Hansen (Tenor/Soprano Sax / DK)Erik Kimestad (Trumpet / NO)Fredrik Lundin (Tenor Sax / DK)Mikkel Aagaard (Trombone / DK)Artur Tuznik (Piano / PL)Yasser Morejón Pino (Bass / CU)Anders Mogensen (Drums / DK)

With the tireless and continuously curious saxophonist and composer Simon Spang-Hanssen as front man, we get an energetic and colorful tribute to a number of favorites from the history of jazz spiced up with the composer’s own interest in other musical cultures: Latin America, Africa, The Orient among others.

The format with four brass players plus rhythm section gives rich possibilities to orchestrate almost with a big band-feeling while maintaining the flexibility of a smaller group. In the group generations and stylistically approaches are mixed in an inciting and mutually challenging unit. Shapes, recurring themes and crooked riffs and imaginary folklore will be playfully intertwined. “Epistrophy” was Thelonius Monks’ signature tune and means something like a recurring, punctured ending phrase. This is used to end the manifold of improvisations – and to send off new ones.

Med den utrættelige og stadigt søgende saxofonist og komponist Simon Spang-Hanssen som frontmand får vi her en energisk og farverig hyldest til en række favoritter fra jazzhistorien krydret med kapelmesterens interesse for andre musikkulturer: Latinamerika, Afrika, Østen m.m.

Formatet med de fire blæsere samt rytmegruppe giver rige muligheder for at orkestrere nærmest Big Band-agtigt, samtidig med at det bibeholder smidigheden i en mindre gruppe. I bandet blandes generationer og stilistisk tilgang i en inciterende og gensidigt udfordrende enhed. Der leges med former, tilbagevendende motiver, skæve riffs og imaginær folklore. ”Epistrophy” var Thelonious Monks kendingsmelodi og betyder noget i retning af en tilbagevendende punkterende slutfrase. Her bruges netop dette til at afrunde de mangfoldige improvisationer - og til at sende nye afsted.

Marilyn Mazur (Percussion / DK)Jon Balke (Piano / NO)Torben Snekkestad (Sax / NO)

Percussionist Marilyn Mazur is always a life-affirming experience with her many exciting instruments and timbres. In 2019, Marilyn was nominated for a Danish Music Award for “Jazz Composer of the Year”, and in 2020 she won a DMA for “Best Album of the Year” with Fredrik Lundin and Kasper Bai and the album "Maluba Orchestra".

In 2020 Marilyn has assembled this explosive trio with three personal and visionary voices within Nordic jazz improvisation. They have a kinship of sound and gather here in a completely fresh musical assignation. The trio will challenge each other in loosely structured shared rhythmical progressions. Look forward to big, intense and life-affirming music without boundaries.

Slagtøjsspilleren Marilyn Mazur er med sine mange spændende instrumenter og klangfarver altid en livsbekræftende oplevelse. Marilyn blev i 2019 nomineret til en Danish Music Award som Årets Danske Jazzkomponist, og i 2020 vandt hun en DMA sammen med Fredrik Lundin og Kasper Bai for årets jazzalbum med “Maluba Orchestra”.

I 2020 samlede Marilyn Mazur denne eksplosive trio med tre personlige og visionære stemmer indenfor nordisk jazzimprovisation, der grundet corona har måtte udskyde deres første koncert til i aften. De har et klangligt slægtskab og samles her i et helt dugfriskt musikalsk stævnemøde. Trioen vil udfordre hinanden i løst strukturerede fælles rytmiske forløb. Se frem til stor, intens og livsbekræftende musik uden grænser.

Nikolaj Svaneborg (Wurlitzer/Synthesizer/Piano / DK)Jonas Kardyb (Drums/Perc / DK)

2. set:

Gustaf Ljunggren (Keys/Strings / SE)Emil de Waal (Drums/Perc/Electronics / DK)

This Monten-night features two duos that combine the acoustic and the electronic in minimalistic soundscapes.

The Danish jazz duo Svaneborg Kardyb is a new hope in Danish jazz. After the release of the duo's debut album, “Knob”, in the spring of 2019 a heady year followed with massive attention and critically acclaimed concerts both at home and abroad. The duo made a name for themselves at the Danish Music Awards Jazz 2019 by receiving both the award for "New Talent of the Year" and "Danish Jazz Composer of the Year" for their meditative grooves and the exquisite interaction between them. In the autumn of 2020, the duo released the sequel, "Haven", which is a tribute to nature. The music is created in the earliest mornings over the blackest coffee and has a minimalist and airy expression, where electronic and acoustic sound unite in elegant harmony. Captivating melodies meet deep Nordic moods in a dreamy and groovy universe.

The Swedish multi-instrumentalist Gustaf Ljunggren and the Danish drummer Emil de Waal's musical universe creates a meeting with avant-garde, easy-listening and ethno, which turn into dreamy cinematic surfaces and then into angular destructiveness. Curiosity and transformation bind two versatile musicians together into a symbiotic and ever-evolving musical expression. After the release of the debut album in 2018, which led to a DMA nomination, 200 plays on DR P8 Jazz and numerous concerts on different continents, Gustaf Ljunggren and Emil de Waal are reunited on the new album "Moon". The music is, if possible, even more personally reflective than on the predecessor, and the songs travels deep into the duo's musical history.

Denne Monten-aften byder på to duoer, der forener det akustiske og elektroniske i minimalistiske lydlandskaber.

Den danske jazzduo Svaneborg Kardyb er et af de nyeste skud på stammen i dansk jazz. Efter udgivelsen af duoens debutalbum, ”Knob”, i foråret 2019 fulgte et hæsblæsende år med massiv opmærksomhed og anmelderroste koncerter både i ind- og udland. Duoen gjorde sig bemærket ved Danish Music Awards Jazz 2019 ved både at modtage prisen for ”Årets Nye Talent” og ”Årets Danske Jazzkomponist” for deres meditative grooves og den udsøgte interaktion imellem dem. I efteråret 2020 udgav duoen opfølgeren, ”Haven”, som er en hyldest til naturen. Musikken er skabt i de tidligste morgener over den sorteste kaffe og har et minimalistisk og luftigt udtryk, hvor elektronisk og akustisk lyd forenes i elegant harmoni. Fængende melodier møder dybe nordiske stemninger i et drømmende og groovy univers.

Den svenske multiinstrumentalist Gustaf Ljunggren og den danske trommeslager Emil de Waal musikalske univers møder avantgarde easy-listening og etno, som bliver til drømmende filmiske flader og derefter til kantet destruktivitet. Nysgerrighed og transformation binder to versatile musikere sammen til et symbiotisk og evigt udviklende musikalsk udtryk. Efter udgivelsen af debutalbummet i 2018, der bl.a. førte til en DMA-nominering, 200 afspilninger på DR P8 Jazz og talrige koncerter på forskellige kontinenter, er Gustaf Ljunggren og Emil de Waal atter forenet på det nye album ”Måne”. Musikken er om muligt endnu mere personligt reflekterende end på forgængeren, og numrene stikker dybt i duoens musikalske erindring.

Celebrating NHØP

“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.
Bo Stief (Bass / DK)Hans Ulrik (Tenor Sax / DK)Henrik Gunde (Piano / DK)Alex Riel (Drums / DK)

National Danish acoustic bass-icon Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen (NHØP) left our world way too soon in 2005. As tradition goes, this evening four musicians show their deep respect and pay their homage to this great innovator.

Bo Stief has been a close ear and eyewitness to NHØP's life, mainly because the two friends had large parts of their musical upbringing at Montmartre. Stief talks about his experiences with NHØP, and the music played will be related to these stories. Stief will be accompanied by three great Danish musicians; Hans Ulrik, Henrik Gunde and the drummer, who has been touring endlessly with NHØP, Alex Riel.

The group enters NHØP’s musical universe and gives us their interpretations of his musical output. We will witness a glorious journey in music, where US-jazz walks hand in hand with traditional Danish songs. And through the entire concert, the spirit of NHØP and his enormous position in Danish jazz will be present.

Danmarks nationale jazz-ikon bassisten Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen forlod alt for tidligt vores verden i 2005. Traditionen tro hyldes NHØP på original og ærefuld vis af musikere, der respekterer hans enorme betydning for jazzen,

Bo Stief har på tæt hold været både øre- og øjenvidne til NHØPs liv, herunder ikke mindst fordi de to venner havde store dele af deres musikalske opvækst på Montmartre. Stief fortæller om sine oplevelser med NHØP, og musikken vil være relateret til beretningerne, hvilken spilles med et hold af store og originale musikere, nemlig Hans Ulrik på sax, Henrik Gunde ved pianoet og trommeslageren, der har været NHØPs kompagnon på utallige turnéer, Alex Riel.

Det bliver en smuk og ærefuld rejse, hvor såvel solid US-jazz som den danske folkehøjskolesangbog danner de musikalske oplæg. Og hele tiden svæver mindet om NHØPs enorme betydning for dansk jazz rundt i lokalet.

Max Ionata (Tenor Sax / IT)Dado Moroni (Piano / IT)Jesper Bodilsen (Bass / DK)Martin Andersen (Drums / DK)

One of the great European north/south collaborations in jazz can be found in this distinguished quartet. Two Danes and two Italians: four musicians who joins together with love and honesty in a musically extremely successful project. Here the authenticity of the countries' uniqueness is preserved. Both the musicians and the audience are challenged and delighted with the endless possibilities that comes, as long as you let the music decide.

Stylistically, the music is difficult to classify, because all four musicians each play with their own personality and desire to take the lead. But do not expect a war on the stage - rather look forward to a blissful musical experience with a happy common outcome.

Et særdeles vellykket europæisk nord/syd-samarbejde findes i denne fornemme kvartet. To danskere og to italienere: fire musikere, der med kærlighed og ærlighed finder sammen i et musikalsk uhyre vellykket projekt. Her bevares og her høres ægtheden i landenes egenart, her udfordres og glædes såvel musikerne som publikum over, hvad der kan lade sig gøre, når bare man lader musikken bestemme.

Stilistisk er musikken svær at rubricere, for alle fire byder ind med hver deres personlighed og lyst til at tage føringen. Men forvent ikke en krig på scenen – se hellere frem til en lyksalig musikalsk holmgang med en lykkelig fælles udgang.

Klara Kristin's debut album "Lullaby & Drum Machine" is packed with iconic French song gems from the 60's and 70's, and will without question make any Francophile heart melt. With her seductive and velvety smooth voice, Klara Kristin pays homage to French culture and the Nouvelle Vague, when she interprets Brigitte Bardot, Francoise Hardy and Serge Gainsbourg with an almost supernatural elegance.

Klara Kristins debutalbum ”Lullaby & Drum Machine” er spækket med ikoniske franske sangperler fra 60’erne og 70’erne og vil uden tvivl få ethvert frankofilt hjerte til at smelte i vinterkulden. Med sin forførende og fløjlsbløde sangstemme hylder Klara Kristin fransk kultur og nouvelle vague, når hun med en nærmest overjordisk elegance fortolker Brigitte Bardot, Francoise Hardy og Serge Gainsbourg.

Dreamcatcher 3.0 feat. Mathias Heise

“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.
Per Gade (Guitar / DK)Mathias Heise (Keys/Harmonica / DK)Peter Hansen (Bass / DK)Rasmus Lund (Drums / DK)

Dreamcatcher was originally formed 25 years ago with Jørgen Emborg behind the piano. The group re-emerged in 2019 with the two new members Mathias Heise and Rasmus Lund. Heise’s phenomenal playing adds an extra dimension to the band’s melodic fusion of funk, jazz, latin and rock. Rasmus Lund is an extremely popular drummer characterized by his versality and appears therefore in many different musical constellations.

Dreamcatcher additionally consists of Per Gade who has been a regular member of DR’s Bigband during the past several years and has played and toured most of the world with the legendary drummer Billy Cobham. The other founder, bassist Peter Hansen, has been a regular member in Jørgen Emborg’s ensembles and is furthermore the composer of most of Dreamcatcher’s songs. The group has just finished a new album, which is expected to be released in the spring of 2021.

Dreamcatcher blev oprindeligt dannet for 25 år siden, i 1995. Dengang var det pianisten, Jørgen Emborg, der sad bag tangenterne. I 2019 genopstod bandet med Mathias Heise og Rasmus Lund som nye medlemmer. Med Mathias Heise´s fænomenale mundharpespil er der lagt en ekstra dimension til af bandets sound og udtryk, som kan beskrives som melodisk fusion med ingredienser af funk, jazz, latin og rock. Rasmus Lund er en særdeles efterspurgt trommeslager, der kendetegnes af sin alsidighed og derfor optræder i mange forskellige konstellationer.

Dreamcatcher består derudover af Per Gade, der har været fast medlem af DR’s Bigband de sidste mange år og har spillet og turneret i det meste af verdenen med den legendariske trommeslager Billy Cobham. Stifter af bandet, bassist Peter Hansen, har været et fast medlem i Jørgen Emborgs ensembler og er endvidere komponisten bag de fleste af Dreamcatchers numre.
Gruppen har været i studiet og udgiver nyt album, som udkommer her i foråret 2021.

Mathias Heise Quartet: From Toots to Infinity

“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.
Mathias Heise (Harmonica / DK)Pelle Von Bülow (Guitar / DK)Thomas Fonnesbæk (Bass / DK)Zoltán Csörsz (Drums / SE)

Toots Thielemans has set massive footsteps in jazz history with his unique approach to the chromatic harmonica. On his own he managed to unite this peculiar instrument with bebop and modern jazz and thus became one of jazz's legends. Mathias Heise is an award-winning Danish harmonica player who has won the World Cup in chromatic jazz harmonica and is seen by many as Toots' successor.

On this evening, in the company of an eminent team of musicians, he will take up the mantle of the famous Belgian and at the same time show new and exciting roads for this particular instrument. The repertoire will feature both Toots' big hits, but also exciting, original compositions.

Toots Thielemans har sat sig 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 og blev således en af jazzens helt store koryfæer såvel som en efterspurgt studiemusiker. Mathias Heise er en prisbelønnet dansk mundharpist, der har vundet verdensmesterskabet i kromatisk jazz mundharpe og af mange bliver set som Toots’ efterfølger.

På denne aften vil han i selskab med et eminent hold af musikere tage arven op fra den berømte Belgier og samtidig vise, hvilke nye og spændende veje der er for dette særlige instrument. Repertoiret kommer både til at indeholde Toots’ store hits, men samtidig også spændende, originale kompositioner.

Mathias Heise Quadrillion

“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.
Mathias Heise (Harmonica/Keys / DK)Mads Christensen (Guitar / DK)David Vang (Bass / DK)Aksel Stadel Borum (Drums / DK)

Mathias Heise Quadrillion has been playing together since 2012 and has since managed to create a different, unique and very personal contemporary expression that appeals to both young crossover fans and hardcore jazz fusion nerds. This evening, the elegance of jazz and the hard-hitting rhythms of funk music will merge into an exuberant set up, with four amazing musicians.

In addition to mastering the chromatic harmonica, 27-year-old Mathias Heise is an outstandingly skilled composer and pianist, and he surrounds himself with a skilled fusion-team consisting of peers and equally brilliant musicians who play a fusion of funk, rock and jazz. Ivan Rod from GAFFA describes the music as "Deeply original, engaging and totally elaborate."

Mathias Heise Quadrillion har spillet sammen siden 2012 og har siden formået at skabe et anderledes, unikt og meget personligt nutidigt udtryk, der appellerer til både unge crossover-fans og hardcore jazz-fusion nørder. Denne aften vil jazzens elegance og funkmusikkens hårdtslående rytmer fusionerer i et sprudlende set up med fire fantastiske musikere.

Udover at mestre den svære kromatiske mundharpe er 27-årige Mathias Heise en enestående dygtig komponist og pianist. Og han omgiver sig med et dygtigt fusionshold, der består af jævnaldrende og lige så fantastiske musikere, som sammen spiller fusion af funk, rock og jazz. Ivan Rod fra GAFFA beskriver musikken som ”Dybt original, medrivende og totalt gennemarbejdet.”

Bjarke Falgren Quartet

“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.
Bjarke Falgren (Violin / DK)Henrik Halberg (Guitar / DK)Morten Lundsby (Bass / DK)Janus Templeton (Drums / DK)

Denmark has a kind of patent on fine jazz violinists: Svend Asmussen was the first. Then followed by Kristian Jørgensen, Mads Tolling and also this evening's main character, Bjarke Falgren. With an uncontrollable musicality, a fine sense of playing the right notes at the right time and a distinguished ability to refine and integrate his playing in all contexts, Falgren is something completely out of the ordinary. Falgren plays with everyone around the world. He composes music for films and TV series, and then he has this quartet that picks up colors from the entire palette: jazz, classical, Brazilian, and not least folk music.

With his irresistible swing, Bjarke Falgren stands out as something very special in contemporary Danish jazz music. He deservedly received the very first "The Ellen & Svend Asmussen Prize" in 2017. Look forward to enjoying a great musician at one of his rare concerts on Danish soil.

Danmark har en slags patent på fine jazzviolinister: Svend Asmussen var den første. Siden fulgte bl.a. Kristian Jørgensen, Mads Tolling og således også denne aftens hovedperson, Bjarke Falgren. Med et ustyrligt musikalsk spil, en fin sans for at spille de rigtige toner på det rette tidspunkt og fornemme evne til at forfine og integrere sit spil i alle sammenhænge er Falgren noget helt ud over det sædvanlige. Falgren spiller med Gud og hvermand verden over. Han komponerer musik til film og tv-serier, og så har han denne kvartet, der henter farver fra hele paletten: jazz-, klassisk-, brasiliansk- og ikke mindst folkemusikken.

Med sit uimodståelige swing står Bjarke Falgren frem som noget ganske særligt i nutidig dansk musik. Han modtog således fortjent den allerførste ”The Ellen & Svend Asmussen Prize” i 2017. Se frem til at nyde en stor musiker ved en af sine sjældne koncerter på dansk grund.

Mikkel Ploug Solo + Nikolaj Hess Solo

“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.
Mikkel Ploug (Guitar / DK)Nikolaj Hess (Piano / DK)

An evening that offers two very authentic Danish solo performers, playing each their instrument with their own musical personality.

Guitarist Mikkel Ploug is a dynamic musician in rapid development. His playing moves effortlessly in between genres with a strong focus on preserving the groove and the melodic originality of the music. During Denmark's first COVID-19 shutdown, Mikkel Ploug played 28 nights in a row from his balcony - both for neighbors and fans who listened from all over the world. The lullabies and evening songs in new guitar solo arrangements are gathered on the album "Balcony Lullabies", and this evening Ploug moves from the balcony to Montmartre’s stage.

The pianist Nikolaj Hess is one of the most original figures in Danish jazz. He is constantly looking for new ways of expression and has a constant retention of the music's strong rhythm. With the project "Impressions of Bob Dylan Revisited", Hess tackles songwriter Bob Dylan's rich archive of fantastic songs, which he gives completely new life through his ability to maintain and constantly offer new suggestions for variations on the well-known and beloved songs.

En aften der tilbyder to særdeles hørværdige danske solo-performere på hvert sit instrument og med hver sin musikalske personlighed.

Guitaristen Mikkel Ploug er en særdeles dynamisk musiker i rivende udvikling. Hans spil bevæger sig ubesværet rundt i genrerne med et stærkt fokus på at bevare groovet og musikkens melodiske oprindelighed. Under Danmarks corona-nedlukning spillede Mikkel Ploug 28 aftener i træk fra sin altan – både for naboer og fans, der lyttede med fra hele verden. De velkendte viser og aftensange i nye guitarsolo-arrangementer er samlet på albummet ”Balcony Lullabies”, og denne aften rykker Ploug sangene fra altanen til Montmartres scene.

Pianisten Nikolaj Hess er en af de mest originale skikkelser i dansk jazz. Han er hele tiden på udkig efter nye udtryksmåder og har en konstant fastholdelse af musikkens stærke rytmik. Med projektet ”Impressions of Bob Dylan Revisited” tager Hess fat i sangskriveren Bob Dylans rige arkiv af fantastiske sange, som han giver helt nyt liv via sin evne til at fastholde og hele tiden give nye bud på variationer over de kendte og elskede sange.

Cathrine Legardh Trio: A Tribute to Monica Z

“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.
Cathrine Legardh (Vocal / DK)Jacob Christoffersen (Piano / DK)Jesper Thorn (Bass / DK)

Among the country's many fine singers, Cathrine Legardh marks herself as one of the very versatile and brave. She has released children's records, played jazz standards and has on the release "En Sång I En Dröm" dared to give her interpretations - in the original language - of the Swedish icon Monica Zetterlund. And the result is nothing short of breathtaking! Not only does Legardh manage to capture and pass on the magic that was always in Zetterlund's phrasings, she also adds her own sweetness and vocal charm to the songs.

Here she is accompanied by one of the country's highly skilled vocal accompanists, Jacob Christoffersen, and the bassist with the great tone and confident intonation, Jesper Thorn. Among many songs, we can look forward to enjoying “Jag vet en dejlig ros”, “Sakta vi går genom stan”, “Monicas vals” and many more. Come join the celebration of one of Scandinavia's great jazz icons, led by one of Scandinavia's truly notable jazz singers.

Blandt landets mange fine sangerinder markerer Cathrine Legardh sig som en af de alsidige og modige. Hun har udgivet deciderede børneplader, leget med jazz-standards og har på udgivelsen ”En Sång I En Dröm” vovet sig ud i at give sine fortolkninger – på originalsproget - af det svenske ikon Monica Zetterlund. Og resultatet er intet mindre end betagende! Ikke kun formår Legardh at fange og videregive den magi, der altid var i Zetterlunds fraseringer, hun tilfører også sangene sin egen sødme og vokale charme.

Her bliver hun akkompagneret af en af landets dygtige vokalakkompagnatører, Jacob Christoffersen og bassisten med den store tone og den sikre intonation, Jesper Thorn. Vi kan bl.a. se frem til at nyde: ”Jag vet en dejlig ros”, ”Sakta vi går genom stan”, ”Monicas vals” og mange flere. Kom og vær med til fejringen af et af Skandinaviens helt store jazzikoner, anført af en af Skandinaviens særdeles høreværdige jazzsangerinder.
