New music with respect for old traditions

At 19-years-old, Peter Marott became the youngest ever member of legendary pianist and arranger Niels Jørgen Steen's big band, which led to countless collaborations with some of the best big bands in Denmark, including Tivoli Big Band and DR Big Band.

Peter Marott has always had a fondness for New Orleans music in all its forms and has managed to bring the old traditions into modern music. This won him the prestigious Palæ Bar award in 2011.

He moves freely between genres such as hip hop, tango, electronica, brazil, and pop, and has worked with the Danish hip hop pioneer MC Einar, the electronics artist Mike Sheridan, Lars HUG, and the Los Angeles-based singer and producer Georgia Muldrow. He has also been featured in a number of theater performances, including at Tivoli (Dirch 2016/Spamalot 2017) and at the Royal Theater (Cabaret 2015/Come Fly Away 2020).

As conductor, Peter Marott has led countless bands, including the former house band of the Copenhagen Jazzhouse, Swinghouse Orchestra, and his own quartet. In addition to arranging/composing and being a busy live musician, he has recorded two solo albums and been featured on more than 70 albums.

The many releases include When My Dreamboat Comes Home (Peter Marott), Ms. One (Georgia Muldrow), Wall Of Books (Mika Vandborg), Phasewide Exitsigns (Martin Hall), At First Sight (Mike Sheridan), X-tra Large (Pasborgs Odessa 5), and Find Me Here (Per Vers).
