Nikolaj Bentzon & the New Funk

“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.

Talking about funky jazz in Denmark? If you are, pianist and composer Nikolaj Bentzon is the man! His group Bentzon Brotherhood has released six CDs and has proven to be a hard-hitter in that particular genre, through cooperation with a.o. jazz/funk-icons bassists Paul Jackson and drummer Mike Clark from legendary Headhunters. In this new group Bentzon presents the new generation of musicians, who have transferred the super-funky output to an acoustic approach – while keeping the tightness and the physical from the original output. In the centre of the music you still have Bentzons enthralling piano-playing, with a touch of keyboards. Off course still focusing on keeping the groovy beat.

Snakker vi funky jazz i Danmark, er pianisten og komponisten Nikolaj Bentzon ikke til at komme uden om. Hans gruppe Bentzon Brotherhood har med seks udgivelser bag sig markeret sig som en stensikker hardhitter i genren, bl.a. i samarbejde med giganterne fra legendariske Headhunters; bassisten Paul Jackson og trommeslageren Mike Clark. Her møder vi Bentzon i hans nyeste outfit, omgivet af den unge generation af musikere, der har overført det superfunky til et akustisk tonesprog – men har bevaret det tætte og kropslige. I centrum høres kapelmesterens medrivende klaverspil, krydret med en anelse keyboards - med et konstant fokus på det groovy beat.
