BILLIE HOLIDAY TRIBUTE AT BRØNNUM Featuring Ken Linh Doky, Ida Astrid & Hugues Morisset On the occasion of the cinema release of BILLIE - the new feature length documentary by James Erskine, about the brilliant, controversial and iconic jazz artist Billie Holiday, her turbulent life, and the timeless music she created - Brønnum proudly presents, in association with the Niels Lan Doky International Jazz Collective, a weekly tribute to the legendary singer, headed by pianist Ken Linh Doky and featuring vocalist Ida Astrid and the French trumpetist Hugues Morisset.
Pianist, producer and music director Ken Linh Doky lives in Paris where he works with Aya Nakamura (the #1 pop artist in France) as well as with several members of Madonna's live band. Following studies at Berklee College Of Music in Boston, Ken has established a reputation among musicians around the world as an artist of unique talent and professionalism. Son of the award-winning and internationally renowned pianist, composer and producer Niels Lan Doky, Ken was raised in the midst of his dad’s recording sessions and concert performances with the biggest icons in jazz. With influences ranging from Oscar Peterson to Kendrick Lamar and Erykah Badu, Ken has a style of his own which contains elements of jazz, hip hop, soul and gospel. Ida Astrid divides her time between Copenhagen and Los Angeles and her compelling and soulful voice is one of the strongest and most versatile in Denmark. The line-up is rounded up by the French trumpet prodigy, Hugues Morisset, who is flying in from Paris especially for this. Together they will perform a program of their interpretations of some of Billie Holiday’s most famous songs.
Join us every Thursday night starting September 16th.
