Sheila Jordan & Cameron Brown

“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.
Sheila Jordan (Vocal / US)Cameron Brown (Bass / US)

Jordan began singing as a child and by the time she was in her early teens was working semi-professionally in Detroit clubs. Her first great influence was Charlie Parker and, indeed, most of her influences have been instrumentalists rather than singers. She moved to New York in the early 50s, but it was not until the early 60s that she made her first recordings. She presented a uncompromising style and has through the years developed her unique musical trademarks, such as the frequent and unexpected sweeping changes of pitch, which still tend to confound an uninitiated audience. Her preference to the bass and voice set led to a remarkable collaboration with bassist Cameron Brown, whom she has been performing with all over the world for more than twenty years so far and they have released the live albums “I’ve Grown Accustomed to the Bass” and “Celebration”. Entirely non-derivative, Jordan is one of only a tiny handful of jazz singers who fully deserve the appellation and for whom no other term will do.

Jordan begyndte at synge som barn, og allerede da hun var i de tidlige teenage-år, arbejdede hun semi-professionelt på klubberne i Detroit. Hendes første store indflydelse var Charlie Parker og faktisk har de fleste af hendes indflydelser været instrumentalister fremfor sangere. Hun flyttede til New York i begyndelsen af 50’erne, men det var først i begyndelsen af 60’erne, at hun foretog sine første indspilninger. Hun præsenterede en kompromisløs stil og har gennem årene udviklet sit helt unikke musikalske varemærke. Det er bl.a. de hyppige og uventede ændringer i tonen, som stadig forbløffer publikum. Hendes præference til samspillet mellem bass og vokal førte til et bemærkelsesværdigt samarbejde med bassisten Cameron Brown. Sammen har de turneret verden rundt i mere end tyve år, og de har udgivet albummene “I’ve Grown Accustomed to the Bass” og “Celebration”. Jordan er en af kun en lille håndfuld jazz sangere, som virkelig fortjener at blive omtalt som en af de største!
