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…
Was so cool so many young fans singing old jazz tunes at the show last night. So happy in Denmark. https://t.co/4k62v34mhf
