About:
“Ella and Louis” is a studio album by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong released in October 1956 and recorded on August 16 of the same year at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles. This inspired collaboration was masterminded by producer Norman Granz. Both artists were riding high at this stage in their careers, and Granz assembled a stellar quartet of Oscar Peterson (piano), Buddy Rich (drums), Herb Ellis (guitar) and Ray Brown (bass). The album was called a "pinnacle of popular singing" and in 2000 it was added to Colin Larkin's All Time Top 1000 Albums. Björk chose the album as one of her favorites in a 1993 Q magazine feature. "I love the way Ella and Louis work together," she remarked. "They were opposites in how they sung, but were still completely functional together, and respectful of each other." Tonight’s performers previously stunned audiences and garnered standing ovations when they performed this same program for the  Autumn Jazz Festival 2018 at the National Museum.

Jazz fans may alternatively book a table at d’Angleterre’s Michelin-starred MARCHAL restaurant. In your booking notes, please mention which show and time you are attending so service staff will be prepared to ensure you have time to get to your seats prior to the start of the performance.

Jazz Masterworks Series:
In 2014, Niels Lan Doky began using the term “Jazz Masterworks Series” to present live performances and modern interpretations of iconic albums that have defined the genre at the now defunct The Standard Jazz Club in Copenhagen. “Unlike Classical music, jazz is mostly improvised and as a result we don’t have written scores of masterworks that can be read and played by other artists. But I have concluded that album recordings are the jazz world equivalent, hence the Jazz Masterworks Series concept was born.” Stellar casts of American, European and South American musicians from the Niels Lan Doky International Jazz Collective will perform and re-interpret the following selection of masterworks albums from Jazz’s iconic canon at Hotel d'Angleterre during Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2020: Oscar Peterson’s “Night Train” // “Ella and Louis” by Louis Armstrong & Ella Fitzgerald // Stan Getz & Charlie Byrd’s “Jazz Samba” // “Velvet Mood” by Billie Holiday.
