Here at the agency I am really excited about this new trio. A trio feat. Some of the finest jazz players from both the Danish and american scene, building on a long musical tradition between these two musical worlds/countries, that started back in the 60s with american jazz musicians living in Copenhagen such as Ben Webster, Dexter Gordon, the old Jazzhus Montmarte. , Kenny Drew and many others.
CarstenDahl is among the greatest pianists on the European jazz scene. He has stirred international attention together with Mads Vinding and Alex Riel and, most recently, he has taken Montmartre by storm with the star bassist Eddie Gomez.
And earlier this year the lengedary Jazzhus Montmartre set up the musical meeting with Dahl and Gregory Hutchinson and Rueben Rogers taking on the standard repertoire. Offering his own suggestion of a sound between Copenhagen and New York.
Montmartre has a venerated tradition of this sort of meetings. Just think about Kenny Drew with Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen and Alex Riel.
Now the trio returns to Copenhagen and Jazzhus Montmarte. In feb 2014 the trio will be back playing standards, and this time also record the show. The recording is scheduled for release via Storyville Records in 2014.
