Join the jazz festival with new releases, stars, surprises and fantastic summer nights

It's Festival season in Copenhagen now. As the Roskilde Festival kicks in today with opening act Outcast today the 03rd, the Copenhagen Jazz Festival starts tomorrow on the 4th. And along the Cph Festival there is also The Summer Jazz Festival in Valby beginning this friday the 4th July.

The line-up this year at Copenhagen Festival is as always a fantastic mix of classic and news. International and Danish jazz melting together making the city one big music stage of exciting sounds, vibes, grooves and jams.

Here from PG Special Agent most artist are out playing and the most easy way to find the dates is looking through the massive programming here:

There are many many highlights so its just about getting out there and feel the music.

I have a few recommendations here for you with new and established talents from the Copenhagen jazz scene.

Thomas Maintz + Aron Parks 05 July

Danish guitarist Thomas Maintz will be releasing new album ”Present” feat. bassist Scott Colley and drummer Johnathan Blake. Since the highly acclaimed debut ”This is The Color” the expectations for the followup album is high. I already had a close listen, and I think that Maintz has come up with an even stronger album. Can't wait till the album hits the streets/ shops.

Maintz will be playing several shows and there is one in particular to watch out for: his performance with US pianist Aron Parks.

Esben Brandt Quartet feat. Aron Parks 05 July.

Young guitarist Esben Brandt just released his 2nd album entitled ” Constants” and is feat. an international line-up with RJ Miller – Drums, Tomasz Dabrowski – Trumpet  and Anders Christensen – Double bass.

The music uses simple and intuitive melodies solidly founded in the Nordic jazz tradition. There is space, which enables the ensemble to create a whole music expression, to explore and react to each other and the music. The simplicity gives the music a great dramatic and dynamic potential. It creates tension and a fragility that is very aesthetically pleasing. It is very clear that there is an excess of technical ability and that makes the music speak very clearly and intently. 

Esben Brandt will be joined live at Krudttønden with his Quartet feat. 
RJ Miller – Drums,
 Tomasz Dabrowski – Trumpet, 
Anders Christensen – Double bass 
and special guest 
Aron Parks - Piano.

Carsten Dahl
Carsten Dahl, who is considered the most important pianist currently in Denmark  also has busy festival. I can strongly recommend two shows feat. Dahl.

07 July jazzhus Montmartre – Release concert 

Carsten Dahl/ piano - Lennart Ginman/ Bass - 
Frands Rifbjerg /drums

This afternoon, Carsten Dahl releases his new trio CD - A GOOD TIME. A recording he wanted to release for some time. The recording sparkles of joy and musicians who are comfortable in each other's company. Drummer Frands Rifbjerg and bass player Lennart Ginman both contributes with superb playing.

08 July at Betty Nansens Teater  

Carsten does not only perform at Copenhagen Jazz Festival but also Summer jazz  taking place in Valby & Frederiksberg.

Here Carsten Dahl join a line-up of international stars in the company of 

Michala Petri / Carsten Dahl / Scott Colley (US) / Benjamin Koppel / Henrik Dam Thomsen / John Hadfield (US)

A dazzling line-up of musicians and one of the most legendary theaters of Copenhagen. Not to be missed.

And not to forget: 
All the Ilk's, The Barefoot, the late night SpacelabSessions, Thorsten Moore from Sonic Youth crashing my favorite Record shop Soundstation  and more than 1000 other concerts during these fine Jazzdays here in Copenhagen. Now go out...feel the vibe !!!!

Stella Polaris Celebration of the local record store...RSD 2014 is coming

On the 19th april, just when you think it's time to leave the city for easter holiday and forget all about records and music, think again. Nope.. It's the annual RSD day that started back in 2007. And it's now you have to focus if you are a record collector. Vinyl is coming to you. And you better be prepared.

Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1000 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. There are Record Store Day participating stores on every continent except Antarctica.Read more and get into the background of RSD here

I am old enough to think back on the ”good old days” they are still here..actually
When it was all about being there on the day the records arrived. The excitement and energy in the room of the local record store when you came down. Packed with djs at the turntables, loud music, tons of records flying through the air. New tracks, remixes.... and the ”nooooo damnn, last one is gone” or the relief when getting the tune of the day..
And just imagine… How much music has and still is coming out of record digging ?  Where would hip hop been without + club music ?….and you ?
But... thats all gone. Many of my local hero stores around are gone..history. But ther are still beaitful islands of vinyl around if you take a closer look. And that's what its all about now. Getting you out in the streets, out in the shops and re-discover the vinyl digging.

The latest Moodymann album
But don't forget your local record store. Keep coming back. Keep digging. Celebrating your local record store is not just one day. It's a weekly routine, maybe even daily. Dropping in, getting inspired. Buy that old jazz record with Art Pepper and pay a bloody fortune. Or being one of lucky ones to get the new Moodymann LP before its gone – sold out.
Getting a quick coffee with the kids and your local vinyl pusher. Letting him keep you addicted by digging that record out that day and making you realize, that you can't continue life without it.... and home you go with a record you never thought of, and you in heaven. Feeling being spoiled.

And just maybe..maybe this record that I worked on getting ready for RSD 2014 is just that one, that will save your day. Together with StellaPolaris we have produced a limited edition 12'' inch in clear loving deep bloody murderous red. It's a first time vinyl release of these two classic Stella Polaris tunes, some of the most popular ever lasting remixes especially produced for the Stella Polaris event in mind:

Side A: Choir of Young Believers
"Hollow Talk "Lulu Rouge's Stella Polaris Remix"

Side AA: Tina Dickow "Break of Day"
"The Stella Polaris Allstars Remix"

The Chase - Get the record  & where to get it.
On the 19th april you will be able to walk into these stores
 (Follow Stella Polaris on facebook and twitter with stores update) in:


Soundstation / www.soundstation.dk
Route 66 / Link til Facebook 

Moby Disc / www.moby-disc.dk

Cafe Stardust / Link
Route 66 / Link to info

If you are not one of the lucky ones living close to a RSD shop, you can have a chance to order it online via the official Stella Polaris store. Stella Polaris cannot ship until the 28th april due to the release in intendted for the shops. But we acknowledge, that there are fans out there who simply do not have access to the sacret rooms of a local record store. And you should still have the chance to purchase this wonderful peace of vinyl.


New album coming with Hess/ AC/ Hess Spacelab + release concert 21 march in Jazzhouse - Copenhagen

Hess/ AC/ Hess Spacelab
First steps into the new album 

Nikolaj 'The Champ' Hess -Piano / Wurlitzer / Organ
Anders 'AC 'Christensen - Accoustic / Electric Bass

Mikkel Hess - Drums

Spacelab continuously celebrates their 25 year anniversary. Dating back to shared childhood in Vejle, Denmark, it is still unclear when this group was actually formed - but the musical explorations feels like they are really just getting started.
Spacelab released their long anticipated first album 'Spacelab - The Champ' in 2009. The album was produced by the now legend Jens Mikkelsen and features the music of Nikolaj 'The Champ' Hess in full glory. The album is a celebration of the 7 year long (and ongoing) residency that Spacelab has held at Copenhagen Jazzhouse with Nikolaj as the bandleader. A late night series that over the years has turned into one of the praised traditions of The Copenhagen Jazz Festival.
Spacelab was named one lengthy night in Copenhagen 1997 under the influence of Violin, Piano and Percussion.

The new album.

On March 13th 2014 Hess/ AC/ Hess Spacelab is releasing their second album.
The trio has been working on the album for a long time. Several of the tunes have been an integral part of the trio's signature repertoire for years, while others are completely new.
The record will present an entirely acoustic and more poetic, subtle, deep felt side of the trio, where the first, acclaimed "Spacelab - The Champ" with Hammond organ, released in 2009, showed a wilder and unrestrained live feeling, created on Copenhagen Jazz Festivals intense night concerts over many years.

The new album is a beautiful and soulful record with 9 original tunes, including some of Hess/AC/Hess’s compositions for movies.
You can look forward contemporary and present trio jazz in its finest form, where intimate compositions and catchy grooves create a virtuoso, poetic musical universe.

1. Jamil (AC)
2. Up (N. Hess)
3. Super 8 (M. Hess)
4. Concorde Je T'aime (AC)
5. Altona (N. Hess)
6. Sunday Grace (M. Hess)
7. Habibi (AC)
8. New & Gone (N. Hess)
9. Lu Bird (M. Hess)

The Release concerts:

The trio will perform exclusive celebrations of the music live 

13. march Slagelse Musikhus. (Tickets here)

21. march Jazzhouse in Copenhagen  feat. special guests:
Anne Trolle, Rune Olesen & Gustaf Ljunggreen

    En berømt, ældre dansk kunstner har angiveligt brugt mindreårige thaipiger som modeller på Gauguin-inspirerede nøgenfotos til sin kommende udstilling … på Statens Museum for Kunst.

    Sexskandalen’ eksploderer i de hjemlige medier, mens kunstneren går under jorden i sit thailandske eksil, nær den syndige badeby Pattaya. Skarpt forfulgt af to vidt forskellige danske journalister, der på hver deres måde forsøger at holde hovedet koldt i en dampende tropisk noir-kulisse fuld af korrupte politifolk, sociale kontraster, fristende kvinder og buddhistisk mystik …

    SOLEN SKINNER ALDRIG PÅ EN GO-GO-BAR er en hårdkogt, satirisk og sansemættet roman om mænd i krise, medier i selvsving og middelklasse på udebane i 2010’ernes globaliserede virkelighed.

    Romanen udkommer midt i vinterferie-højsæsonen for de omkring 150.000 danskere, som hvert år rejser til Thailand. Og det er ikke svært at se lighederne med den såkaldte Jørgen Leth-'skandale' for nogle år siden, når forfatteren Henrik List her i sin anden roman veloplagt spidder den kreative, politisk korrekte danske middelklasses forundring over, at resten af verden tilsyneladende hverken kan eller vil leve ligesom os

Forfatteren kan bookes her hos PG Special Agent fra januar 2014 til disse nye litteraturshows:

Henrik List: ”Solen skinner aldrig på en go-go-bar”
Oplæsning fra den topaktuelle roman fra det Thailand, som hvert år besøges af ca. 150.000 danske turister. Med feriehøjsæson lige nu i januar, februar og marts!

List - Live & Levende …
List er oppe på beatet, når han læser op fra sine nyere bøger – bl.a. ”Pussyland”, ”Scener fra Sunset Boulevard” og ”Solen skinner aldrig på en go-go-bar”. Et intenst, personligt og frit flydende oplæsningsshow - krydret med ’sex, drugs & rock’n’roll’-historier fra forfatterens eget liv.www.henriklist.dk

Henrik List med Simon Toldams Trio: Broken Word – Jazz & Prosa
List læser op, og Simon Toldams Trio river ned. Sanselig, hårdtpumpet prosa og skarp, dekonstruktivistisk bebop-jazz. Der bliver hældt historier i klaveret og øl i halsen i dette spoken word-show med Simon Toldams Trio + evt. Jokeren som special guest ( NB: Dette show kan KUN bookes for perioden juni 2014 til september 2014 og er velegnet til festivaler, højskoler etc.) Lyt her: 

I efteråret 2010 udkom Lists anmelderskamroste, kulturhistoriske rejsessay
”Scener fra Sunset Boulevard” (se anmeldelser på www.tiderneskifter.dk/default.asp?pid=2&bogid=512).

I foråret 2009 udkom den også særdeles velanmeldte og bredt medieomtalte debutroman ”Kære fucking dagbog” (se anmeldelser påwww.kaerefuckingdagbog.dk). Romanen er nu udsendt i fem oplag samt som henholdvis e-bog og lydbog (Lindhardt og Ringhof).
