About: 
“Velvet Mood” (subtitled “Songs by Billie Holiday”) is an album by jazz singer Billie Holiday, released in 1956 on Clef Records. The music was recorded over the course of two sessions in Los Angeles, two days apart, which had also resulted in all the material for Billie Holiday’s previous album “Music for Torching”.  The album featured an all-star cast of musicians from the Norman Granz roster, that were given ample room for soloing in addition to their supporting roles behind Billie Holiday’s haunting vocals. The cast included Benny Carter (alto Saxophone), Harry "Sweets" Edison (trumpet), Jimmy Rowles (piano), Barney Kessel (guitar), Larry Bunker (drums) and John Simmons (bass).

Gerard Presenter (trumpet/UK)
Fredrik Kronkvist (alto sax/SE)
Calle Brickman (piano/SE)

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.
