Norway Felix Peikli w/ Carl Nilsen & Norwegian Jazz Orchestra: Duke Ellington 120th Anniversary
International Jazz Day by UNESCO has been celebrated worldwide since 2011. This is an annual event to celebrate the global values that Jazz represent: diversity, acceptance, freedom of speech, and using music as a tool for the betterment of society. 2019 marks the 120th anniversary of the great Duke Ellington and we choose to pay homage to his legend who fought for artistic and political freedom.

Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn released their tribute to the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg’s “Peer Gynt Suite” in 1961, which received a very poor response in Norway. Headlines in the papers included “Norway horrified by Ellingtons Peer Gynt” (Aftenposten 1964). The Norwegian Composers Union, the Grieg Academy, and Aftenposten released statements such as “…a rape of our cultural and national hero”. The album was banned in stores and in radio for nearly 10 years.

The internationally acclaimed Jazz clarinetist Felix Peikli and the classically esteemed conductor Carl Nilsen have found inspiration in Ellingtons arrangements of Griegs Peer Gynt Suite and facilitated this music for the Norwegian Jazz Orchestra. With Peikli as soloist, Nilsen as conductor, and some of Norways finest Jazz and Classical musicians on stage, they invite you to a spectacular and trailblazing celebrations of IJD in Kulturkirken Jakob in Oslo: April 27th, 2019!

Thierry Lang «Heritage Trio» with special guest Olivier Ker Ourio

Olivier Ker Ourio: harmonica
Thierry Lang: piano
Darryl Hall: bass
Mario Gonzi: drums

Mit einer kurzen Tournee feiern die vier Musiker das Erscheinen der 44. CD der Serie «Swiss Radio Days» des Jazz-Labels TCB in Koproduktion mit der SRG.

Darauf enthalten ist ein Zusammenschnitt zweier Konzerte am Jazz-Festival Cully von 1989 und 1990 des damaligen Thierry Lang Trio mit Toots Thielemans. Die aktuellen Konzerte sind künstlerisch wie spirituell eine Hommage an den grossen, 2016 verstorbenen Harmonikaspieler, der sein Instrument wie kaum jemand sonst im Jazz etablierte und der einen Tag vor diesem Konzert, am 29. April, Geburtstag gehabt hätte. Und ebenfalls kaum jemand sonst ist so dafür geeignet, in die Fussstapfen seines Vorbilds Toots Thielemans zu treten wie der aus Réunion stammende und in Paris lebende Olivier Ker Ourio, der weltweit als eines der grössten Talente an der chromatischen Harmonika gilt. Das «Heritage Trio», vom grandiosen, inspirierten Pianisten und Komponisten Thierry Lang 2016 gegründet, um den Swing zu zelebrieren, der ihn seit seiner Kindheit begleitet hat, ist ein wahres Dreamteam für die seelenvolle und perfektionierte Interpretation der ausgesuchten Stücke. www.thierrylang.chwww.kerourio.com

###

With a short tour, these four musicians celebrate the release of the 44th CD of the series “Swiss Radio Days” by the jazz label TCB in co-production with SRG.

This includes a compilation of two concerts at the Cully Jazz Festival  from 1989 and 1990 of the then Thierry Lang Trio with Toots Thielemans. The current concerts are artistically and spiritually a tribute to the late great harmonicist, who established his instrument like no one else in jazz and who would have had a birthday before the concert on April 29, the day before. And hardly anyone else is more apt to follow in the footsteps of his role model Toots Thielemans, than Olivier Ker Ourio, a native of Réunion living in Paris and considered one of the greatest chromatic harmonica talents in the world. Founded in 2016 by Thierry Lang, the grandiose, inspired pianist and composer to celebrate the swing that has accompanied him since childhood, the “Heritage Trio” is a true dream team for the soulful and perfected interpretation of selected pieces. www.thierrylang.ch; www.kerourio.com
