Jesper Thilo with Olivier Antunes

“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.

The internationally acclaimed saxophonist Jesper Thilo has since the early 1960s positioned himself as a colossal in both the Danish and European jazz landscape. As part of the Arnvid Meyers Orchestra, DR's Big Band and various ensembles of national and international character, Jesper Thilo has made a significant impression on Danish jazz and always guaranteed music on top of the scale. He was the first to receive the Ben Webster award in 1977. A prize that was awarded to Olivier Antunes in 1999. Thilo and Antunes began their telepathic collaboration in 1995, where the mere 22-year-old Olivier entered the big scene along with the already internationally recognized Thilo. The mentor and protegé relationship has resulted in musical sparks over the years. The combination of Thilo's hot, crisp and melodic saxophone with Antunes' youthful, potent and temperamental piano forms an exquisite cocktail that any jazz connoisseur will enjoy. Not least when they are accompanied by the two virtuosos; Thomas Fonnesbæk on bass and Janus Templeton on drums.

Den internationalt anerkendte saxofonist Jesper Thilo har siden starten af 1960’erne positioneret sig som en kolos i både det danske og europæiske jazzlandskab. Med sine skridt i Arnvid Meyers Orkester, DR’s Big Band samt diverse ensembler af national og international karakter har Jesper Thilo sat et markant aftryk på dansk jazz og altid været garant for et tårnhøjt musikalsk niveau. Han var den første til at modtage Ben Webster-prisen i 1977. En pris, der i øvrigt blev tildelt Olivier Antunes i 1999. Thilo og Antunes indledte deres telepatiske samarbejde i 1995, hvor den blot 22-årige Olivier trådte ind på den store scene sammen med den allerede internationalt anerkendte Thilo. Mentor og protegé-forholdet lagde kimen til et samarbejde, der gennem årene har slået musikalske gnister. Kombinationen af Thilos varme, sprøde og melodiske saxofon oven på Antunes’ ungdommelige, potente og temperamentsfulde piano udgør en udsøgt cocktail, som enhver jazzkender vil nyde smagen af. Ikke mindst når de også bliver akkompagneret af de to virtuoser; Thomas Fonnesbæk på bas og Janus Templeton ved trommerne.
