Monday Motorway Music™, July 13 – Going Gaga Over All That Jazz…

Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga, Tivoli, Copenhagen, July 8

Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga, Tivoli, Copenhagen, July 8

As mentioned last week, I didn’t get to the Roskilde Festival this year. But – there is always next year – and of course, there was the Copenhagen Jazz Festival 🙂

6 concerts we managed altogether this year – you saw the picture from Malene Kjærgård Group’s very warm Sunday performance a week ago. Funnily enough, when we were at Danish singer Sinne Eeg‘s concert yesterday, Malene Kjærgård was in the audience and we got to have a wee chat with her about last week’s concert and jazz as such. Copenhagen’s like that – quite easy and laid back.

A trio of girls singing Andrews Sisters, Danish singer Katrine Madsen with a big band, Delta Blues Band – a venerable blues band (that I heard live when I was in high school!) and then, of course, the fabulous Tony Bennett and Lada Gaga duo. Man…!

Lady Gaga and some of her musicians had gone paiting the town – and ended up at La Fontaine, long, long-standing renowned jazz club in Copenhagen. And, of course, ended up performing. Here’s a clip of a casually dressed Lady Gaga singing La Vie en Rose.

And no – by that time, we were safely tucked in bed. Workday the next day, y’know…

And, by the way, the Lady also liked her Copenhagen audience…

It was a good Jazz Festival!

And while I have been – much – on the motorway today, the music I’ll leave for you to look up for yourself. Here a a few choices – all available on Spotify:

Down on West Fuxing Lu – Sinne Eeg
Let’s Face the Music and Dance – Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga
(the whole Cheek to Cheek album, in fact)
Rhode Island Is Famous For You – Malene Kjærgård
