Melody Gardot & Aarhus Jazz Orchestra (US/DK)

Et hovednavn med bid og karisma



Musikhuset Aarhus fortsætter traditionen og præsenterer igen under dette års jazzfestival et af genrens største navne i et nyt og unikt samarbejde med dygtige Aarhus Jazz Orchestra.



32-årige Melody Gardot er både komponist, guitarist, pianist og sangskriver. Hendes følsomme og udtryksfulde numre fylder publikum med begejstring.



Melody Gardot fik sit store gennembrud med albummet My One and Only Thrill, som har solgt 1,5 millioner eksemplarer siden 2009. Albummet blev skabt i samarbejde med den grammy-vindende producer Larry Klein, som især er kendt for sit mangeårige samarbejde med Joni Mitchell (med hvem han var gift og lavede Both Sides Now), samt artister som Herbie Hancock, Freddie Hubbard og Tracy Chapman.



Herhjemme har anmelderne rost både hendes album og betagende livekoncerter. GAFFA kaldte hendes seneste besøg i Danmark for “En ubesværet kraftpræstation af den karismatiske amerikaner og hendes forrygende orkester” og uddelte seks stjerner, mens Berlingske beskriver The Currency of Man som et smukt album med bid og karisma.



Melody Gardots kraftpræstation skal ses i lyset af, at hun stadig kæmper med fysiske mén fra en trafikulykke, der skulle komme til at ændre hendes musikalske rejse. Som 19-årig blev hun hårdt kvæstet, da hun på cykel blev ramt af en jeep. Hun var indlagt i over et år og kunne ikke spille klaver i en længere periode. 




A headliner with teeth and charisma



During this year's jazz festival, Musikhuset Aarhus continues its tradition and presents one of the genre's biggest names in a new and unique collaboration with the talented Aarhus Jazz Orchestra.



32-year-old Melody Gardot is a composer, guitarist, pianist and songwriter. Her sensitive and expressive tunes fill audiences with excitement. 



Melody Gardot had her breakthrough with the album My One and Only Thrill, which has sold 1.5 million copies since 2009. The album was created in collaboration with Grammy-winning producer Larry Klein, who is particularly known for having worked with Joni Michell (to whom he was married and worked on Both Sides Now with) for many years as well as artists such as Herbie Hancock, Freddie Hubbard, and Tracy Chapman.



Here at home, reviewers have praised her album and breathtaking live performances. GAFFA described her most recent visit to Denmark as 'An effortless tour de force from the charismatic American and her excellent band' and gave her a six-star rating, while Berlingske described The Currency of Man as a beautiful album with teeth and charisma.



Melody Gardot's tour de force should be seen in the light of her continuing struggle with injuries stemming from a traffic accident, which would change her musical journey. As a 19-year-old, she was badly injured as she was hit by a jeep while cycling. She was hospitalised for more than a year and was unable to play the piano for a prolonged period.
