After leaving the group Blood, Sweat and Tears, the legendary American guitarist Mike Stern took the jazz world by storm in 1981 as part of the Miles Davis comeback band, when he introduced a totally new and innovative style of guitar playing consisting of a unique blend of elements from bebop, blues and rock. The now 66 year old guitar icon - originally from Boston but a New Yorker for many decades - is considered one of his generation's greatest and most influential guitarists. Last year Mike Stern delivered a mind-blowing concert run with us at the National Museum paying tribute one of his greatest idols - Jimi Hendrix. This time around we are going to expand the concept to include a broader range of artists from the 1960s psychedelic rock, including Pink Floyd, The Doors, Cream, Jefferson Airplane and of course, Jimi Hendrix.
Joining Mike Stern on stage is compelling cast of musicians including Danish icon Niels Lan Doky on piano, French bass virtuoso Francois Moutin and, for the first time with us, 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.
Behind the scenes:
This show is presented by the NIELS LAN DOKY INTERNATIONAL JAZZ COLLECTIVE with partners Nørrebro Theater, Nørrebro Bryghus, Qvartz, Mejlshede Låse, Nørrebro Handelsforening and NørrebroLiv. The NLD IJC is an association of prolific musicians from three different continents (Europe, North America and South America) - who are devoted to presenting unique and exclusive jazz performances of the highest order, which they curate and produce themselves and which cannot be heard anywhere else. The collective is led by jazz pianist and producer Niels Lan Doky, who was knighted by HM the Queen of Denmark. The NLD IJC was founded in September 2017 and has produced a total of 60 events at the National Museum of Denmark, located in the capital of Copenhagen. This Summer, the collective is proud and excited to take up residence at Nørrebro Theater, a prominent venue located in the heart of Nørrebro - one of Copenhagen’s most progressive neighborhoods with its many cafés, restaurants, shops, and theatres. Nearby sights include the gravesite of Danish literary icons Hans Christian Andersen and Søren Kierkegaard and of legendary American jazz expats Ben Webster and Kenny Drew, not to mention that Niels Lan Doky grew up just around the corner from Nørrebro Theater.
