Denzal Sinclaire (voc, p) Mads Kjølby (g) Graig Earle (b), Janus Templeton (drm)

A tribute to Nat King Cole and all the other great jazz vocalists

Denzal Sinclaire is known in the jazz world as one of the most elegant and fervent live interpreters of jazz standards around.

For the past four years, he has often performed with Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra – he has basically become their regular male vocalist for projects that require one – and has travelled around the world to play shows with, among others, Patrice Rushin, Dee Dee Bridgewater, The Count Basie Orchestra, Cleo Laine, Jimmy Heath, Bob Mintzer, Nicholas Payton and Brian Blade.

He has also been a guest at Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Jimmi Kimmel Live! and Manu Kathcé's One Shot Not (in France).

He has released three award-nominated and award-winning records at Verve/Universal Records USA and received the "Male Jazz Vocalist of the Year" award in the Jazz Report Magazine for four consecutive years.

Denzal Sinclaire cultivates the tradition of Nat King Cole and others from the same period. Nat King Cole is one of his greatest role models, who will be celebrated in the 100th anniversary of Nat King Cole's birth. It will be a unique concert experience.

The concert is part of the event series 100 years of jazz in Aarhus and is supported by the William Demant Foundation, the CAC Foundation and the Nordea Foundation "We support good living".
