Nikolaj Hess feat. Marc Mommaas

Buy tickets via link – entry 100,-

“The mastery of Mommaas and Hess completely overwhelms any feeling of normal. This is art of the highest standard, and a record which will most definitely be a “best of.” (Allaboutjazz)

Nikolaj Hess’s samarbejde med den New York baserede Amerikansk/Hollandske saxofonist Marc Mommaas rækker tilbage til 1998, og har resulteret i en række internationale udgivelser og turneer i USA, Spanien, Holland og Skandinavien. Seneste udgivelse er albummet Ballads Standards på Sunnyside Records (US), hvor Hess og Mommaas spiller kreative bearbejdninger af nøje udvalgte standard ballader med vinkler, elementer og ideer fra deres frie improvisationspraksis og originalkompositioner. 


Til denne early Saturday afternoon koncert vil Hess og Mommaas udforske en række jazz klassikere blandet med frit improviserede forløb i en samlet reflektion over deres mangfoldige fælles kreative mødepunkter. Melodisk, harmonisk, rytmisk interaktivt flow og musikalsk kommunikation på allerhøjeste niveau. 

Det bliver et mix det Nordiske univers kombineret med den internationale jazztradition og et sublimt interplay og sans for klang og stemning, med evigt legende og lyttende under- og overtoner, kombineret med melodisk nerve og ekspressivitet. Syngende melodilinjer, hypnotiske grooves og swing, filmiske lydflader og stemningsfulde ballader.
