On this one very special evening – Jazzhus Montmatre’s 1 year anniversary – two very special ensembles unite and reunite respectively.

Entrance: It was with the group Entrance that Palle Mikkelborg’s remarkable career solidly took shape. With the group Entrance Mikkelborg explored the electronic jazz sound of the 1970’s and 80’s and eventually co-recorded his composition Aura together with Miles Davis. Entrance was also the last group to perform at the Montmartre in Nørregade before the club closed down in 1995.

Montmartre Ensemble: As Entrance reunites for Montmartre’s 1 year birthday, another group unites for the very first time, but certainly not the last. Montmartre proudly presents the new Montmartre Ensemble. The ensemble is the jazz club’s new playground for musical initiatives; where seeds are planted and music harvested. Members of Montmartre’s Artistic Council will unite in the first concert of the Montmartre Ensemble presenting new compositions and arrangements. In the future the ensemble will invite the finest of Montmartre musicians onto the small stage of the jazz club as well as outside the Danish border.

With the re/union of old and new, we look to the past and the future and mark our 1 year anniversary in celebration!
