BUY TICKET

Please note, the concert ticket includes entrance to the museum.

Harvey Mason’s sound and drum style is unavoidable and you must have heard him play. Mason is one of the most recorded drummers of all time. His credentials reflect mind-boggling versatility (Björk, James Brown, Celine Dion, Duke Ellington, etc). His most famous jazz work includes the groundbreaking Herbie Hancock album Headhunters.

Darryl Jones rose to fame touring with Miles Davis and in 1985, he became a member of Sting’s first solo band. He later joined the Rolling Stones and has toured and recorded with the band since 1994.

Saxophonist Bill Evans began his career at age 21 with Miles Davis. To date, he has recorded 26 solo CDs and toured with the biggest names in jazz.

Aside from performing, arranging, composing, and producing music Niels Lan Doky has worked as a film director, author, venue owner, and speaker. The international press have called him “the best pianist of his generation” and “one of the most important pianists that European jazz has given us in the last 45 years”. He is also head of The Niels Lan Doky International Jazz Collective; an association of prolific musicians from Europe, North America and South America, devoted to presenting unique and exclusive jazz performances which cannot be heard anywhere else.

The Niels Lan Doky International Jazz Collective (NLD IJC) will between June and December (excl. July) take up residence at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art to produce five unique, exclusive and highly innovative concert projects. Terri Lyne Carrington and Alvin Queen will each lead their own concert alongside selected members of the NLD IJC to take us on a musical journey through jazz interpretations of repertoire and genres not previously translated through the lens of jazz. Furthermore, the Jazz/Takes Supergroup (Harvey Mason, Darryl Jones, Bill Evans, & Niels Lan Doky) will perform highlights from current and past seasons.

The concert is supported by Augustinus Fonden, William Demant Fonden, Knud Højgaards Fond, Statens Kunstfond & Gangsted Fonden.
