Simon Spang-Hanssen Epistrophy Septet

“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.

With the tireless and continuously curious saxophonist and composer Simon Spang-Hanssen as front man, we get an energetic and colorful tribute to a number of favorites from the history of jazz spiced up with the composer’s own interest in other musical cultures: Latin America, Africa, The Orient among others.

The format with four brass players plus rhythm section gives rich possibilities to orchestrate almost with a big band-feeling while maintaining the flexibility of a smaller group. In the group generations and stylistically approaches are mixed in an inciting and mutually challenging unit. Shapes, recurring themes and crooked riffs and imaginary folklore will be playfully intertwined. “Epistrophy” was Thelonius Monks’ signature tune and means something like a recurring, punctured ending phrase. This is used to end the manifold of improvisations – and to send off new ones.

Med den utrættelige og stadigt søgende saxofonist og komponist Simon Spang-Hanssen som frontmand får vi her en energisk og farverig hyldest til en række favoritter fra jazzhistorien krydret med kapelmesterens interesse for andre musikkulturer: Latinamerika, Afrika, Østen m.m.

Formatet med de fire blæsere samt rytmegruppe giver rige muligheder for at orkestrere nærmest Big Band-agtigt, samtidig med at det bibeholder smidigheden i en mindre gruppe. I bandet blandes generationer og stilistisk tilgang i en inciterende og gensidigt udfordrende enhed. Der leges med former, tilbagevendende motiver, skæve riffs og imaginær folklore. ”Epistrophy” var Thelonious Monks kendingsmelodi og betyder noget i retning af en tilbagevendende punkterende slutfrase. Her bruges netop dette til at afrunde de mangfoldige improvisationer - og til at sende nye afsted.
