Melissa Stylianou Quartet (US/CAN/DK)

Denne eftermiddag kommer New York til Bispetorvet



Melissa Stylianou er et af de store yngre navne på New Yorks jazzscene. Hun er især kendt især for sin virtuositet som vokalist og sin evne til at bygge bro fra moderne jazz og improvisation til bebop og brazil-jazz i sine arrangementer af jazzstandarder og egne kompositioner.



Hun har spillet med blandt andre Matt Wilson, Billy Drewes, Fred Hirsch og Ben Monder og optrådt steder som Carnegie hall, The Blue Note og Birdland.



Melissa Stylianou har haft en fast månedlig residency på den berømte 55 Bar i over 10 år, hvor hun har udviklet materialet til sine fem album, de seneste to udgivet på Anzic Records.



Hun var finalist på Downbeat Magazines Critics Poll i­ Rising Star- kategorien, og hendes seneste album No Regrets var udpeget som en af 2015's Top 50 Jazz Records af JazzTimes Magazine.



Melissa Stylianou har ved denne lejlighed medbragt sin faste New York-pianist Jamie Reynolds, den canadiske bassist Graig Earle og Janus Templeton – med aarhusianske rødder – på trommer.




New York comes to Bispetorvet for an evening



Melissa Stylianou is one of the younger acts on the New York jazz scene. She is particularly known for her virtuosity as a vocalist and her ability to bridge modern jazz, improvisation, bebop, and Brazilian jazz in her arrangements of jazz standards and original compositions.



She has played with the likes of Matt Wilson, Billy Drewes, Fred Hirsch, and Ben Monder and has performed at venues such as Carnegie Hall, The Blue Note, and Birdland.



Melissa Stylianou had a permanent monthly spot at the famous 55 Bar for over 10 years, where she developed the material for her five albums of which the most recent two were released on Anzic Records.



She was a finalist in Downbeat Magazine's Critics Poll in the Rising Star category and her most recent album No Regrets was listed as one of 2015's top 50 jazz records by JazzTimes Magazine.



For this occasion, Melissa Stylianou has brought her permanent New York pianist Jamie Reynolds, the Canadian bass player Graig Earle, and Janus Templeton, who has roots in Aarhus, on drums.
