Lars Danielsson: Liberetto III

“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.
Lars Danielsson (Bass / SE)Grégory Privat (Piano / MQ)John Parricelli (Guitar / UK)Magnus Öström (Drums/Percussion / SE)

The Swedish cellist and bassist Lars Danielsson will honor Montmartre with a visit. He has an inimitable sound, which comes both from his background and from his classical education. His unparalleled talent for simple and catchy melodies characterizes his music as leader, as well as his feel for sounds and arrangements, and by his flair for putting together very special groups of musicians. This time around the talented group of assembled musicians shall include Gregory Privat on the piano, John Parricelli on the guitar and Magnus Öström on both drums and percussion.

Den svenske superbassist Lars Danielsson, der er efterspurgt over hele verden for sit smukke lyriske og rytmiske spil, lægger vejen forbi Montmartre. Lars Danielssons unikke lyd kan bl.a. krediteres til hans klassiske musikalske baggrund. Hans uovertrufne talent for enkle og fængende melodier karakteriserer hans musik som leder, såvel som hans følelse af lyde og arrangementer samt hans flair for at sammensætte unikke og talentfulde grupper af musikere. Denne gang vil gruppen af musikere bestå af Gregory Privat på piano, John Parricelli på guitar og Magnus Öström på både trommer og perkussion.

Live on Vinyl & Dansk Fløde

Julia Werup (Vocals/Spoken Word / SE)Bjørn Vidø (Guitar/Concept / DK)Peter Stenbæk (Percussion / DK)Simon Littauer (Modular Synth / DK)Rasmus Juel (Trumpet / DK)Simon Dyhr (Bass / DK)Mikael Fleron (Baritone Sax / DK)Marte Schau (Vocals / NO)Jørgen Lauritsen (Piano / DK)Ole Stenum (Synth / DK)Kristoffer Raasted (Percussion/Modular Synth / DK)Lars Nybo (Drums / DK)Jørgen Saabye (Keys / DK)No1 (Cut Master / DK)Jesper “Jokeren” Dahl (Spoken Word/Rap / DK)

This is a unique chance to experience a concert being cut directly on vinyl. Each set lasts 12 minutes - exactly the time available on a 10" vinyl. Dansk Fløde will bring the vintage machine and with the rest of the Live On Vinyl team they will show the delicate art of cutting a vinyl record whilst the music is playing.

Live on Vinyl is a battle between the acoustic and electronic. Between the planned themes and the unpredictable. An intense fight for getting as much juice on the vinyl as possible. The musical style will present electric and acoustic elements, spiced up with spoken words and singing. Live on Vinyl has played at Pumpehuset and Roskilde Festival (The headphone concert). Cause the vinyl machine is so heavy and cumbersome, it’s only the 2nd official concert in Copenhagen, besides a series of closed concerts in the band’s studio Freezone Sound Design.

Dette er en unik chance for at opleve en koncert blive skåret direkte ned på vinyl. Hvert sæt varer 12 minutter – lige præcis, hvad der er plads til på en 10” vinylplade. Dansk Fløde medbringer maskinen og fremviser, sammen med resten af Live on Vinyl-holdet, den fornemme kunst at skære en vinylplade, samtidig med at musikken buldrer afsted.

Live on Vinyl er en kamp mellem det akustiske og elektriske. Mellem de planlagte temaer og det uforudsigelige. En intens kamp for at få så meget juice ned i rillen som muligt. Stilen er elektrisk jazz med akustiske elementer, krydret med spoken word og sang. Der bliver spillet fire sæt med forskellige konstellationer, hvor Dansk Fløde lægger ud. Live on Vinyl har tidligere spillet i Pumpehuset og på Roskilde (høretelefon-koncerterne). Men da maskinen er tung og besværlig, er det kun den 2. officielle koncert i København, efter en række lukkede koncerter i bandets studie Freezone Sound Design.

Paolo Fresu/Daniele di Bonaventura

Paolo Fresu (Trumpet/Flugelhorn / IT)Daniele di Bonaventura (Accordion / IT)

The Italian trumpet and flugelhorn player, Paolo Fresu, is one of the most important jazz musicians on the European scene today. He has collaborated with a large part of the European elite as well as top-shelf artists from the US. However, his well-deserved reputation is due to his creative outings as a solo artist and band leader, which has earned him a large following that admires his expansive performances and fine soft tone, which, according to some critics, carries much resemblance to a certain Chet Baker. Paolo Fresu will perform together with fellow countryman, Daniele di Bonaventura, who is a bandoneonist, whose collaborations extend from classical music to contemporary music, from jazz to tango and world music.

Den italienske trompetist og flygelhorn mester Paolo Fresu er en af de vigtigste europæiske jazzmusikere i dag og har samarbejdet med stort set hele eliten fra Europa og i øvrigt også med en hel del fra USA. Det er dog som solokunstner og bandleder, at han har skabt sig et følge, der beundrer hans ekspansive udfoldelser og nyder hans fine bløde tone, der ifølge visse kritikere bærer mindelser om selveste Chet Baker. Han optræder sammen med landsmanden Daniele di Bonaventura, som er en mester på Bandoneónen, hvis musikalske projekter spænder fra klassisk musik til nutidig musik, fra jazz til tango og verdensmusik.

Bo Stief: One Song Now

Bo Stief (Bass / DK)Ayi Solomon (Percussion / GA)Krister Jonsson (Guitar / SE)

The Danish virtuoso bassist Bo Stief has an unusual ability to put together musical projects with extremely talented musicians, which always results in both captivating and original output. This time around we will have the pleasure of hearing Bo Stief perform together with Swedish guitarist Krister Jonsson and Ghanaian percussionist Ayi Solomon. At the tender age of 17 Bo Stief was already making his mark at Jazzhus Montmartre where he used to be a substitute musician who would perform with the likes of Dexter Gordon, Yusef Lateef and Ben Webster. Since then he has toured all over the world with the biggest stars in jazz, but he still returns to his roots and musical home at Montmartre from time to time.

Den danske virtuose kontra- og elbassist Bo Stief har en udsædvanlig evne til at sammensætte musikalske projekter med yderst talentfulde og spilleglade musikere, hvilket altid resulterer i et både medrivende og originalt output. I denne omgang får vi glæden af at høre Bo Stief optræde sammen med svenske Krister Jonsson på guitar og ghanesiske Ayi Solomon på perkussion. Som kun 17-årig dukkede Bo Stief op i det gamle Montmartre og begyndte at spille som afløser med Dexter Gordon, Yusef Lateef og Ben Webster. Siden har han turneret vidt og bredt med de største stjerner i jazzen, men vender stadig hjem til rødderne på Montmartre.

Justin Kauflin is a fascinating and rather new act on the international jazz scene. As a young boy he became blind, and when sports, computer games etc. became impossible, the piano took a central role in his life. Justin Kauflin is a blessed musician, who only needs to hear a song once to learn it while playing with a sensitivity that instantly grabs the attention of the audience. There is a good reason why Quincy Jones has produced both the documentary “Keep On Keepin’ On” about Justin Kauflin’s life and his debut album. He will bless the stage together with one of the most prominent

Justin Kauflin er en ny, fascinerende skikkelse på den internationale jazzscene. Som ung blev han blind, og da sport, computerspil osv. blev en umulighed, trådte klaveret i stedet. Justin Kauflin er en gudsbenådet musiker, som kun behøver at høre et nummer én gang for at lære det og samtidig spiller med en følsomhed, som tryllebinder publikum. Der er en god grund til, at Quincy Jones har produceret både dokumentarfilmen ”Keep On Keepin' On” om Justin Kauflins liv og hans debutalbum. Han indtager scenen sammen med en af de store danske musikere på den danske jazzscene, Thomas Fonnesbæk, hvis kontrabas synger, så man mindes om NHØP.

Scandinavian/British jazz trio Phronesis have the ability to excite, inspire and move people in a way that few bands are able to do. Formed in 2005 by Danish double-bass player Jasper Høiby, their charismatic live performances have captured the hearts and minds of audiences worldwide and prompted Jon Newey (editor of Jazzwise Magazine) to describe them as “the most exciting and imaginative piano trio since EST”.

Den internationale trio Phronesis har længe hørt til de mest interessante navne på den moderne europæiske jazz-scene. De begejstrer publikum med deres vitale, rytmisk komplekse og dog dybt fængende udtryk. De tre musikere er hver især store tekniske og musikalske begavelser, og gennem årene har de som trio opnået et sammenspil, som har gjort dem til en af Europas førende trioer – en trio, der forener klingende skønhed, avancerede rytmer og sofistikeret intelligens. Sidste års ‘Parallax’ var således en veritabel magtdemonstration af moderne triojazz, og i år blev albummet fulgt op af ‘The Behemoth’, hvor trioen prøvede kræfter med en større orkestrering sammen med Frankfurt Radio Big Band. ‘The Behemoth’ modtog som forgængeren store kritikerroser. Bl.a. kaldte Politiken pladen for »smuk jazz af allerfineste kaliber«, mens All About Jazz skrev: ”a must-hear release”.
