Description

This live recording from December 1, 1973 finds American jazz pianist Duke Jordan at the famed jazz club Montmartre in the heart of Copenhagen the night before the (studio) recording session of his best-selling album 'Flight To Denmark'.

Duke Jordan made Denmark his permanent home until his death in 2006. April 1, 2022 is Duke's 100th anniversary of birth.

Jordan's early success came as member of the Charlie Parker Quintet contributing some of the most endearingly apt introductions of the jazz' classic repertoires such as "Embraceable You". He composed quite a few great jazz tunes that became standard numbers like "Jor-du" and "No Problem" among others. After a lengthy hiatus due to his drug problems in the 6'0s Jordan was rescued by a handful of Danish jazz enthusiasts and started resuming his professional career in Europe and Japan.

'Montmartre 73' features the young tenorist Bent Jaedig, who shared the bandstand with Jordan during the years into the '80s. Along with Jaedig are two guest players were sitting in on a track each: bassists Eddie Gomez (in town with Bill Evans), and South African Johnny Dyani.

Personnel: Duke Jordan (piano), Bent Jaedig tenor saxophone), Allan Gregersen, Johnny Dyani, Eddie Gomez (bass), Jørn Elniff (drums)
