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

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.
