Mette Juul Quartet

“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.
Mette Juul (Vocal/Guitar / DK)Peter Rosendal (Piano / DK)Kasper Vadsholt (Bass / DK)Zoltán Csörsz (Drums / SE)

The Danish singer Mette Juul does not make it harder and more complicated than it is. There is a liberating calm in her vocal, whether she sings standards or presents her own very beautiful and melodic songs.

As a listener you are captured by Mette Juul's honest communication of the deeply personal lyrics, sat to beautiful melodies. She is developing from release to release, from concert to concert, and has earned a place at the very top of Scandinavian song soloists. The musical trio backing Juul does simply not come any better and will surround Juuls vocal in a beautiful harmonic blanket.

Den danske sangerinde Mette Juul gør det ikke sværere og mere kompliceret, end det er. Der hviler en befriende ro over hendes sangforedrag, hvad enten hun synger standards eller præsenterer sine egne, meget smukke, melodisk originale og indsmigrende sange.

Mette Juuls evne til at forenkle og nærmest underfrasere de smukke melodier er en særlig evne, der er ganske hendes egen. Som lytter indfanges man af Mette Juuls ærlige formidling af de dybt ærlige og personlige tekster, sat til smukke melodier. Mette Juul udvikler sig fra udgivelse til udgivelse, fra koncert til koncert, og har fortjent en plads i toppen af skandinaviske sangsolister. Supertrioen bag Mette Juul fås heller ikke bedre og vil svøbe hende i det smukkeste harmonitæppe, der findes.

This new established trio will make their grant debut in front of a Danish audience performing at Jazzhus Montmartre.

Imagination, feeling and interplay are the three key words that make this trio an extraordinary unit of spectacular creativity and impact. This is indeed a trio you do not want to miss.

Denne nyligt etablerede trio står foran deres danske debut, når de giver koncert på Jazzhus Montmartre. Trioen samler tre vaskeægte europæiske jazzgiganter fra tre forskellige lande: Pianisten Enrico Pieranunzi; måske en af de mest beundrede italienske jazzmusikere, trommeslageren André Ceccarelli; et stort ikon på den franske jazzscene, og ikke mindst den altid enestående danske bassist Thomas Fonnesbæk. Fantasi, følelse og samspil er de tre nøgleord, der gør denne trio til en ekstraordinær enhed fyldt med spektakulær kreativitet. Alt i alt en trio man bare ikke må gå glip af.

Oliver Skou-Due Kvintet / Jazzkonkurrencen

“Upcoming” is Montmartre’s series of talent concerts where upcoming artists test the boundaries of jazz.
Oliver Skou-Due (Piano / DK)Isak Schiødt (Tenor Sax / DK)Malthe Kaptain (Trumpet / DK)Lukas Loeb (Bass / DK)Mikkel Blæsild Vuust (Drums / DK)

Oliver Skou-Due Kvintet is based on the 21-year-old pianist Oliver Skou-Due's compositions from his debut album "Just an Album". Jazz reviewer Niels Overgård has stated about the record: "With charming modesty, the mere 21-year-old pianist, Oliver Skou-Due, has called his debut album" Just An Album” (…) Yes, in the vast amount of music that is out there, Oliver Skou-Due's record is just another album. But for Oliver Skou-Due, it is a huge step into the world of music"

With an unimpressed freshness, the quintet's music jumps between the different styles of jazz, alternating between pompous numbers and a more playful impro-jazz. The whole thing is spiced with large amounts of high spirits and a good portion of madness, which to a great extent leaves respect, and a desire to hear more from the young musicians.

Oliver Skou-Due Kvintet is one of the four finalists in Jazzkonkurrencen 2020 and has in that context been given the possibility to perform as a headliner at Jazzhus Montmartre. The concert is presented in collaboration with JazzDanmark and Gangstedfonden.

Students/under 26: 50% off

Oliver Skou-Due Kvintet tager udgangspunkt i den 21-årige jazzpianist Oliver Skou-Dues kompositioner fra hans debutalbum ”Just An Album”. Jazzanmelder Niels Overgård har udtalt om pladen: ”Med charmerende beskedenhed har den blot 21-årige pianist Oliver Skou-Due kaldt sit debutalbum for ”Just An Album” (…) Ja, i den store mængde af musik, der findes derude, er Oliver Skou-Dues plade bare endnu et album. Men for Oliver Skou-Due er den et kæmpeskridt ind i musikverdenen”.

Med en uimponeret freshness springer kvintettens musik rundt mellem jazzens stilarter, og der veksles mellem pompøse numre og en mere legende impro-jazz. Det hele er krydret med store mængder af højt humør og en god portion vanvid, der i højeste grad efterlader respekt og en lyst til at høre mere fra de unge musikere.

Oliver Skou-Due Kvintet er en af de fire finalister i Jazzkonkurrencen 2020 og har i den forbindelse fået muligheden for en headliner-koncert på Jazzhus Montmartre. Koncerten præsenteres i samarbejde med JazzDanmark og Gangstedfonden.

Manu Le Prince: Tribute to João Gilberto & Tom Jobim

Manu Le Prince (Vocal / FR)Julian Le Prince Caetano (Piano / BR)Acelino de Paula (Bass / BR)Frederic Sicart (Drums / FR)

It’s always interesting to follow the development in music in other countries; especially when the bet is on personal contributions to already established music. The French singer and composer Manu Le Prince is in front of the row when we talk of Brazilian music; whether bossa-nova, samba or newer still-growing forms. Le Prince has experience in fusion music as well as more pop-oriented music, but her current expression approaches the authentic Braz-jazz more and more. Here, she presents, with her own group consisting of Brazilian musicians, a repertoire that celebrates the Brazilian songwriter giants João Gilberto and Tom Jobim.

Det er altid interessant at følge udviklingen i musik fra andre lande; specielt når der satses på personlige bud på allerede etableret musik. Den franske sanger og komponist Manu Le Prince står allerforrest i rækken, når talen falder på brasiliansk musik; det være sig bossa-nova, samba eller de nyere former, der stadig ligger og bobler. Le Prince har baggrund i fusionsmusik såvel som i mere pop-orienteret musik, men hendes nuværende udtryk nærmer sig mere og mere den autentiske brasser-jazz. Her præsenterer hun med egen gruppe bestående af brasilianske musikere et repertoire, der hylder de brasilianske sangskriver-giganter João Gilberto og Tom Jobim.

Espen Eriksen (Piano / NO)Lars Tormod Jenset (Bass / NO)Andreas Bye (Drums / NO)Andy Sheppard (Tenor Sax / UK)

Norwegian jazz musicians are not afraid to highlight their own qualities. Nor does the pianist Espen Eriksen, who is visiting Montmartre with his fine trio, expanded with the fine English tenor saxophonist Andy Sheppard. The constellation has played sold-out jazz houses all over Europe, has visited several jazz festivals and is one of Norway’s most sought-after artists. All fully deserved.

Eriksen & co. delivers some of the most beautiful and intense acoustic jazz on the Scandinavian stage. The music is of course inspired from the Norwegian melancholy, with Sheppard's British sound added. But above all, we have the essentials of contemporary jazz - openness, desire, and freedom to play whatever you want. A concert with music that points forward to that extent!

Norske jazzmusikere er ikke bange for at fremhæve egne kvaliteter. Således heller ikke pianisten Espen Eriksen, der her gæster Montmartre med sin fine trio udvidet med den fine engelske tenorsaxofonist Andy Sheppard. Konstellationen har spillet for udsolgte huse over hele Europa, har gæstet flere jazzfestivaller og hører til blandt vort nordlige broderlands mest efterspurgte kunstnere. Alt sammen fuldt fortjent.

Eriksen & co. leverer noget af den smukkeste og mest intense akustiske jazz på den skandinaviske scene. Der spores naturligvis inspirationer fra den melankolske norske musiktradition, ligesom Sheppards britiske lyd tilføjes. Men fremfor alt har vi fat i det essentielle i nutidig jazz - nemlig åbenhed, lyst og frihed til at spille hvad man ønsker. En koncert med musik, der i den grad peger fremad!

Julia Werup (Vocal / SE)Thomas Blachman (Drums/Producer / DK)Sven Erik Lundeqvist (Piano / SE)Johnny Åman (Bass / SE)

The poet and singer Julia Werup move into new territory in her latest musical project entitled ‘The Thrill of Loving You’. As a singer she is self-taught and has found her ability to effortlessly hit the notes precisely, far from the music conservatory's rehearsal rooms. Her voice and narrative have acquired a special and recognizable sound through an often complex life.

With her on stage are pianist Sven Erik Lundeqvist, bassist Johnny Åman and drummer and producer Thomas Blachman. The group experiments with some of the mythical tracks from the great songbook of jazz and is searching for a sound that is meditative and groovy. This is music that rises from a style-conscious, Nordic collaboration that will sound elegant and swinging and at the same time reach to the soul's longing for clarification and hope.

Digteren og sangeren Julia Werup bevæger sig ind på nyt terræn med sit musikalske projekt med titlen ”The Thrill of Loving You”. Som sanger er hun selvlært, og hun har fundet sin ubesværede evne til at ramme tonerne præcist langt fra musikkonservatoriets øvelokaler. Hendes stemme og fortælling har fået sin egen, særlige og genkendelige lyd gennem et ofte komplekst liv.

Med sig på scenen har hun pianisten Sven Erik Lundeqvist, bassisten Johnny Åman og trommeslageren og produceren Thomas Blachman. Gruppen eksperimenterer med nogle af de mytiske numre fra jazzens store sangbog og søger mod en lyd, der er mere meditativ og groovy. Det er musik, der udspringer af et stilbevidst, nordisk samarbejde, der vil være elegant og swingende og samtidig nå ind til sjælens længsel efter afklaring og håb.

Driving Miles

“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.
Hans Henrik Clemensen (Actor / DK)Anders Malta (Trumpet / DK)Zier Romme (Piano / DK)Rune Fog-Nielsen (Bass / DK)Cornelia Nilsson (Drums / SE)

The performance "Driving Miles" revolves around Svein Åge's fictional friend, the scrap dealer Steinar, and his encounter with Miles' music at a legendary concert in Montreux in 1989. The concert becomes a revelation for Steinar, and it completely changes his attitude towards life. The performance becomes the classic tale of the meeting between the ordinary man and the great art with the music as the focal point. Steinar's encounter with Miles' legendary music therefore forms the framework for a poetic, deeply personal and nuanced tribute to the power of art and music.

Vigga Bro has instructed the play. Hans Henrik Clemensen plays the role of Steinar. On stage he is surrounded by a jazz quartet consisting of Anders Malta, Zier Romme Larsen, Cornelia Nilsson and Tune Fog-Nielsen. After the performance “Driving Miles”, the quartet will play a short concert.

This show is presented in a collaboration between Parteatret Frederikssund og Jazzhus Montmartre.

Forestillingen ”Driving Miles” kredser omkring Svein Åges opdigtede ven, skrothandleren Steinar, og dennes møde med Miles’ musik ved en legendarisk koncert i Montreux i 1989. Koncerten bliver nærmest en åbenbaring for Steinar, og den ændrer fuldstændig hans indstilling til livet. Forestillingen bliver til den klassiske fortælling om mødet mellem den jævne mand og den store kunst med musikken som omdrejningspunktet.
Steinars møde med Miles’ legendariske musik danner derfor rammen for en poetisk, dybt personlig og nuanceret hyldest til kunstens og musikkens kraft.

Vigga Bro har instrueret forestillingen. Hans Henrik Clemensen spiller rollen som Steinar. Han står på scenen omgivet af en jazzkvartet bestående af Anders Malta, Zier Romme Larsen, Cornelia Nilsson og Rune Fog-Nielsen. Efter forestillingen ”Driving Miles” spiller aftenens kvartet en kort koncert.

Forestillingen præsenteres i et samarbejde mellem Parkteatret Frederikssund og Jazzhus Montmartre.

Alex Riel (Drums / DK)Marian Petrescu (Piano (RO))Joel Locher (Bass / DE)

The members of this trio got to know each other back in 2017 on a small tour in Germany and Switzerland. And with such experienced musicians behind the instruments, the trio's musical concept cannot be described as new and untested. Instead, it is designed for an experienced interplay that moves through different styles and time periods - from Oscar Peterson to Keith Jarrett.

With a spectacular elegance and virtuoso technique, the Romanian star pianist, Marian Petrescu, will take lead in these concerts. By his side is the internationally renowned bassist Joel Locher from Stuttgart, and behind the drums sits none other than the Danish drum legend, Alex Riel, who in the autumn of 2020 celebrated his 80th birthday with a series of fabulous concerts at Jazzhus Montmartre. This is trio jazz from the very top shelf, filled with swing, eccentricity and a unique level of quality.

Denne trio lærte hinanden at kende tilbage i 2017 på en lille turné i Tyskland og Schweiz og med så garvede musikere bag instrumenterne kan trioens musikalske koncept ikke betegnes som nyt og uprøvet. I stedet er der lagt op til et rutineret samspil, der bevæger sig gennem forskellige stilarter og tidsperioder - lige fra Oscar Peterson til Keith Jarrett.

Med en spektakulær elegance og virtuos teknik vil den rumænske stjernepianist, Marian Petrescu, lede koncerterne. Ved hans side er den internationalt anerkendte bassist Joel Locher fra Stuttgart, og ved trommerne sidder ingen ringere end den danske trommelegende, Alex Riel, der i efteråret 2020 fejrede sin 80-års fødselsdag med en række fabelagtige koncerter på Jazzhus Montmartre. Der er lagt op til triojazz fra allerøverste hylde fyldt med swing, excentricitet og et enestående niveau af kvalitet.

Kathrine Windfeld took everyone by storm when she appeared not so long ago. And she has since built on her formidable abilities to create music for large ensembles. The music is not only captivating and melodic, but with respect, Windfeld builds on the form of composition that was introduced by i.a. Thad Jones.

Here we get Kathrine Windfeld with her explosive sextet consisting of young Nordic and Polish musicians. It's quite a treat to get the chance to enjoy this music on the stage of Jazzhus Montmartre. The room will be enveloped in the most beautiful tunes when Kathrine Windfeld Sextet starts counting in, and we will have the opportunity to take in what is guaranteed to be a big part of the expression for jazz music in the future.

Hun var der lige pludselig. En hamrende talentfuld, selvstændig og ikke mindst original komponist, arrangør og pianist. Det hele på en gang! Kathrine Windfeld tog alle med storm, da hun dukkede frem for ikke så længe siden. Og hun har siden da bygget videre på sine formidable evner til at skabe musik for store ensembler. Musikken er ikke alene medrivende og melodisk, men med respekt bygger Windfeld videre på den kompositionsform, der blev introduceret af bl.a. Thad Jones.

Her får vi Kathrine Windfeld med hendes eksplosive sekstet bestående af unge nordiske og polske musikere. Det er noget af en treat at få chancen for at nyde denne musik på Jazzhus Montmartres scene. Lokalet vil blive indhyllet i de flotteste og smukkeste toner, når Kathrine Windfeld Sextet tæller for, og vi får mulighed for at indtage hvad, der med garanti vil være en stor del af fremtidens jazzmusikalske udtryk.

Hvalfugl feat. Jakob Sørensen

Jonathan Fjord Bredholt (Piano / DK)Jeppe Lavsen (Guitar / DK)Anders Juel Bomholt (Bass / DK)Jakob Sørensen (Trumpet / DK)

The Aarhus trio Hvalfugl belongs to an exciting young generation of Danish musicians who build a bridge between Nordic folk music and the sound of jazz. The trio's third album "Øjeblikke Vi Husker" from 2020, ended up on Jazznyt's top-10 list of best Danish jazz releases, and the group has really stormed forward in the Danish jazz landscape - and with good reason. On this evening the trio will feature the award-winning trumpetist Jakob Sørensen, who, like Hvalfugl, seeks the deep, Nordic sound.

There is a bubbling freshness in Hvalfugl's bid on how jazzed folk music should sound in our time. It is music that with its Nordic sound is able to strike down into the Danish soul, and at the same time follow the virtues of trio jazz in a very elegant way. With their playful interplay and dreamy sound, you are led towards hilly landscapes and bright Nordic summer nights. The tones of Hvalfugl are able to break down boundaries and at the same time open up new paths, where jazz and nature merge into one.

Den Aarhusianske trio Hvalfugl tilhører en spændende ung generation af danske musikere, som bygger bro mellem den nordiske folkemusik og jazzens klang. Trioens tredje album ”Øjeblikke Vi Husker” fra 2020 havnede på Jazznyt’s top-10 liste over bedste danske jazzudgivelser, og gruppen er for alvor stormet frem i det danske jazzlandskab – og med god grund. Med sig har trioen denne aften den prisvindende trompetist Jakob Sørensen, der ligesom Hvalfugl søger mod den dybe, nordiske lyd.

Der er en perlende friskhed i Hvalfugls bud på, hvordan jazzet folkemusik skal lyde i vores tid. Det er musik, der med sin nordiske klang evner at ramme ned i den danske folkesjæl, og samtidig følge triojazzens dyder på særdeles elegant vis. Med deres legende samspil og drømmende lyd føres man mod bakkede landskaber og lyse nordiske sommernætter. Hvalfugls toner evner at nedbryde grænser og samtidig åbne op for nye veje, hvor jazzen og naturen smelter sammen i ét.

One of Denmark’s absolute great national orchestras in jazz is called New Jungle Orchestra. Due to COVID-19, we unfortunately had to cancel the concert that was to celebrate the orchestra's 40th anniversary in 2020. Fortunately, we can celebrate the orchestra's 41 years with this concert!

NJO has through their traveling all over the world established their sound and a musical expression that collects inspiration from music from the Nordic countries to Sibiria, India, Bali, USA, Africa, The Middle East and The Deer Park in Denmark – all these sources of inspiration are mixed, intertwined and interpreted so there is something for every listener. Incarnated jazz haters have been converted to unconditional jazz lovers after spending two sets with NJO, and even those who have heard NJO multiple times still have a sensational experience every time Pierre Dørge and his troop of well-trained improvisers take the stage. This night we can expect a sublime mixture of newly composed music and old NJO-hits in new versions. You’ll never leave a New Jungle Orchestra concert unaffected!

Et af Danmarks store nationale orkestre på jazzfronten hedder New Jungle Orchestra. Grundet corona måtte vi desværre aflyse koncerten, der skulle fejre orkestrets 40-års jubilæum i 2020. Heldigvis kan vi så få lov til at fejre orkestrets 41 år med denne koncert!

NJO har via orkestrets rejser verden rundt defineret en lyd og et musikalsk udtryk, der opsamler inspirationer fra musik fra de Nordiske lande over Sibirien til Indien, Bali, USA, Afrika, Mellemøsten og Dyrehaven – inspirationer, der blandes, bindes sammen og formidles, så alle lyttere får noget med hjem. Inkarnerede jazzhadere er blevet omvendt til ubetingede jazzelskere efter to sæt i selskab med NJO, og selv de der har hørt NJO utallige gange får stadig en ordentlig en på opleveren, når Pierre Dørge og hans flok af veldresserede improvisatorer slår sig løs. Ved denne koncert kan vi forvente en sublim blanding af nykomponerede værker og gamle hits i nye versioner. Man går aldrig upåvirket fra en koncert med New Jungle Orchestra!

Dameronia's Legacy Allstars: New York Meets Europe

“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.

Eight musicians representing the homeland of jazz, the United States, as well as Austria, Italy and Germany, gather in this distinguished group to celebrate the music created by the iconic pianist and composer Tadd Dameron. As one of the creators of bop music, Dameron's uncompromising style was a constant inspiration for his contemporary musicians. And his music still presents challenges to contemporary musicians and delight among audiences worldwide.

This group is an excellent example of how Dameron's music is still current, can still delight and is still relevant. Fine musicians all around, all showing their dedication to one of jazz's great personalities and original composers. The memories of Tadd Dameron live on beautifully in this group's reverent continuation of his music.

Otte musikere repræsenterende såvel jazzens hjemland, USA, som Østrig, Italien og Tyskland samles i denne fornemme gruppe for at fejre musikken, der blev skabt af den ikoniske pianist og komponist Tadd Dameron. Som en af bop-musikkens skabere var Damerons kompromisløse stil en konstant inspiration for sin samtids musikere. Og hans musik giver stadig udfordringer til nutidige musikere og glæde blandt publikum verden over.

Denne gruppe er et ypperligt eksempel på, at Damerons musik stadig er aktuel, stadig kan henrykke og stadig er relevant. Fine musikere hele vejen rundt, der alle viser deres dedikation til en af jazzens helt store personligheder og originale komponister. Minderne om Tadd Dameron lever smukt videre i denne gruppes ærbødige videreførelse af hans musik.
