Scott Hamilton/Jan Lundgren Quartet ft. Ulf Wakenius

“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.
Scott Hamilton (Tenor Sax / US)Jan Lundgren (Piano / SE)Ulf Wakenius (Guitar / SE)Hans Backenroth (Bass / SE)Kristian Leth (Drums / DK)

This is music for the sweet tooth. If you are a sucker for the good melodies, tastefully played by world class musicians, this is the concert for you. The repertoire is picked from the rich treasure-box of popular songs from the 20th century’s Denmark. Songs that we all know and that is part of our cultural inheritance. You will also hear music, closely connected to US-musicians like Stan Getz and Oscar Pettiford, who lived in Copenhagen way back in the late 50s, but whose legacy is still present. This all-star group is led by the American tenor saxophone player Scott Hamilton, who is a master at conveying beautiful melodies. Complimented by the Swedish pianist Jan Lundgren’s personal style and sublime phrasing, which is very close to fellow countryman and Swedish jazz-icon Jan Johansson’s, and the Swedish super-guitarist Ulf Wakenius, whose melodic and technically perfect string work is known from his years with Oscar Peterson and Danish bass-icon Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen. The rhythm-team consist of the experienced and swinging Swedish bassist Hans Backenroth and the versatile Danish drummer Kristian Leth. These concerts mark the release of Hamilton’s new album “Danish Ballads & more”.

Her er lidt af en lækkerbisken for yndere af de gode melodier, smagfuldt spillet af fremragende musikere. Repertoiret er blandt andet udvalgt fra den danske sangskat fra det 20. århundrede. Sange, som vi alle kender og elsker; Forelsket i København, Alley Cat, Det Var En Lørdag Aften og I Skovens Dybe Stille Ro samt standards, der blev spillet af dengang herboende amerikanske musikere, som Stan Getz og Oscar Pettiford. Stjerneholdet anføres af den amerikanske tenorsaxofonist Scott Hamilton, der om nogen formår at formidle smukke melodier, den svenske pianist Jan Lundgren, hvis sublime spil og tilgang til musikken ligger meget tæt op af landsmanden Jan Johanssons, den ligeledes svenske superguitarist Ulf Wakenius - kendt fra bl.a. NHØPs trio og Oscar Petersons gruppe, samt det stærke rytmehold, bassisten Hans Backenroth og trommeslageren Kristian Leth. En walk down memory lane, men også et bud på nutidige fortolkninger af stor musik. Koncerterne markerer også udgivelsen af Hamiltons dugfriske album ”Danish Ballads & more”.
