Niels Lan Doky International Jazz Collective kicks off its Autumn jazz programme with the concert JAZZ/TAKE ON JIMI HENDRIX and presents one of the greatest guitarists of all time Mike Stern alongside another highly accomplished guitarist Leni Stern. With them on stage they have François Moutin, the French bass virtuoso, and his charismatic and energetic twin brother Louis Moutin on drums, along with guest vocalist Nana Nørgaard (aka Neu Sierra). Together, they will embark on a musical journey, reinterpreting Hendrix's timeless songs through jazz!
American jazz/fusion guitarist Mike Stern is widely acclaimed as one of the most innovative, influential, and original guitarists of his generation. When first exposed to a larger audience as a member of Miles Davis’ celebrated comeback band of the early 1980s, Stern’s personal and refreshing blend of rock, blues, and jazz influences didn’t sound like anything anyone had ever heard before.

Furthermore the programme includes presents Niels Lan Doky on 8 December, when he performs his first-ever solo piano concert in Denmark as part of his new concert series The Radius Of Now, showcasing his original compositions, as well as improvisational ‘Explorations’; spontaneous, abstract-poetic creations that delve deep into the present moment, rendering each performance a singular and extraordinary experience that cannot be replicated.
