John Scofield: Country For Old Men

“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.

One of the greatest innovators of modern jazz guitar and a three-time Grammy award-winning artist, John Scofield, is coming to Montmartre.

In 2016, the guitar legend went into a new conceptual territory, bringing his lifelong love of American Country music out of his toolbox to share with his jazz audiences. In his “Country for Old Men” recording, which won two Grammy awards, Scofield redesigns classic country melodies, performing with several of his closest musical associates from the jazz community. In Scofield’s words, “We’re going to turn “outlaw” country tunes into jazz vehicles. Rather than go to Nashville and record with “real” country players in a country style, I’m joining forces with my jazz cronies to play the songs with our jazz approach. We improvise while keeping the integrity, character and twang of this wonderful American music. I’ve always loved Country music and am super excited to put my treatment of them into play.” Scofield and company will sculpt jazz renditions of classic tunes by George Jones, Hank Williams, Patti Page and even Shania Twain to name a few! He will be accompanied by Gerald Clayton on the organ and piano, Vincente Archer on the bass, and Bill Stewart on the drums.

This is a rare opportunity to experience John Scofield up close, in our small and intimate music hall.

NB: It's not possible to book table or dinner for these two concerts.

Sjælden intimkoncert med verdens måske bedste jazz-guitarist John Scofield.

Gå ikke glip af det, når en af de største inden for moderne jazzguitar og modtager af tre Grammy Awards, John Scofield, gæster Montmartre.

I 2016 bevægede guitarlegenden ind i et nyt musikalsk territorium, hvor han bringer sin livslange kærlighed til amerikansk countrymusik til livs. På John Scofields album ”Country for Old Men”, som har vundet to Grammy Awards, udtaler han således ”Vi vil forvandle country sange til jazz melodier (…) Vi vil improvisere samtidig med, at vi holder country musikkens integritet og karakter. Jeg har altid elsket country musik og er meget begejstret for at give genren min egen twist.” Scofield og Co. vil optræde med jazzede udgaver af klassiske country melodier fra kunstnere som George Jones, Hank Williams, Patti Page og Shania Twain. Han vil blive akkompagneret af Gerald Clayton på orgel og piano, Vincente Archer på bas og Bill Stewart på trommer.

Dette er en unik mulighed for at opleve John Scofield helt tæt på, i vores intime og hyggelige musiksal.

OBS! OBS! Der er ikke åbent for spisning eller bordbooking til disse to koncerter. Det er først til mølle med pladserne.
