“Jazz Standards” are for the most part just pop songs from the 1930s and 1940s that jazz artists started to interpret as their own. Icons like Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong, John Coltrane and numerous others created their own jazz renditions of the most famous pop songs of their time, in order to offer audiences a radically different perspective on extremely familiar songs. And in most cases, their renditions have outlived the original versions by far, being played and re-recorded by thousands of new jazz artists in the decades that followed. As a result, these songs are now widely identified as the classic jazz repertoire.
We are taking this concept into the present and gather a seasoned international all-star jazz trio led by the “knight of Jazz,” Danish piano icon Niels Lan Doky, featuring French bass virtuoso Francois Moutin and, for the first time in Denmark, his identical twin brother, Louis Moutin, who is also a highly acclaimed drummer on the international jazz scene, not least in the USA and his native France. The spectacular young Danish vocalist Amanda Thomsen returns from the USA to complete the lineup – to explore some of today’s biggest pop songs in a jazz setting. Come and join us on this adventurous journey and experience history in the making as we develop tomorrow’s new jazz standards.
