Info zu Live at Montmartre
Jacob Artved is the youngest of a very talented new generation of Danish jazz guitar players. At the age of 20 he has already been a working musician for years, being introduced on the scene by Danish guitar legend Jacob Fischer at the age of 15. He was admitted to the Royal Academy of Music as the youngest student ever, but chose to drop out, move to New York and spent the long nights jamming instead.
On this live-recording from the legendary Jazz club Montmartre in Copenhagen he is featured by one of the greatest drummers of all time, Mr. Louis Hayes. Commenting on the experience, Jacob says: “To play this music with someone you feel so much admiration for can almost be an intimidating experience and, in some cases, make you hold back your creativity in utter respect and fear of doing something wrong. This feeling is something that I think most young musicians, including myself, have experienced at some point in their career. Of course, those situations are what make you stronger, practice more, and think even harder! Although sometimes you’re lucky enough to find someone that you admire and feel all the same respect for, yet don’t feel the big gap between you in age difference, experience, mindset and accomplishments.”
In a very special way Hayes is the connection back to the most legendary period of jazz when he in 1962 sat behind the drums backing Bud Powell and Nat & Julian “Cannonball” Adderly. The creators of Bebop and modern jazz. It is great to see that in the year 2020 this is still relevant to the youngest of talents in the business. On this release, Jacob Artved bridges multiple generations and shows us why this artform is more alive than ever.

Louis Sedell Hayes
was born May 31, 1937 in Detroit Michigan. He was always surrounded by music, actually first starting with the piano, before his father gave him a set of drums at age 10. A cousin noticed his talent, took him under his wing and made sure that his approach to the instrument would serve him well. And well it did, for after developing his skills in the fertile musical ground of Detroit in the 1950's with the likes of Yusef Lateef, Kenny Burrell, Doug Watkins and others, Louis found himself at the tender age of 18 in New York as a member of the great Horace Silver Quintet. His first recording with Horace, the classic Six Pieces Of Silver would introduce him to the jazz world as a new force to be acknowledged. Louis Hayes with Oscar Peterson and Sam Jones ...during which time he and bassist Sam Jones became known as the "dynamic duo", recognized as the most powerful rhythm duo in jazz. Louis continued to enhance his reputation with Horace from 1956 until 1959 when he joined Cannonball Adderley where he propelled the quintet to joyous musical heights and timeless recordings through 1965. He joined piano master Oscar Peterson from 1965-67 during which time he and bassist Sam Jones became known as the "dynamic duo", recognized as the most powerful rhythm duo in jazz. Louis would rejoin Oscar in 1971 for a year.
For the next decade or more he became leader or co-leader of a series of electrifying groups which included musicians such as Freddie Hubbard, Kenny Barron, Junior Cooke, Woody Shaw and Dexter Gordon. Louis also spent several years touring with McCoy Tyner. The Louis Hayes Group with Herald Mabern and Frank Strozier culminated four years of artistry with the album; Variety Is The Spice which received five stars, truly an accomplishment during a period when his style of hard driving, "bebop" was less preferred. In 2002 he formed and led the Cannonball Adderley Legacy Band and produced 3 successful CDs: Dreaming of Cannon, Maximum Fire Power, and Louis Hayes and The Cannonball Adderley Legacy Band. Band members were Vincent Herring, Jeremy Pelt and bass players Vincent Archer, Richie Goods and Dezron Douglas at various times.
...he became leader or co-leader of a series of electrifying groups... Louis has played and recorded with jazz greats such as John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, J J Johnson, Sonny Rollins, Jackie McLean, Wes Montgomery, Joe Henderson, Cedar Walton, George Benson as well as Ravi Shankar, John Lee Hooker and others. He has had numerous honors and awards, here is just a sampling:
His current endeavor is a project entitled "Serenade for Horace" which is a tribute to his friend and mentor, Horace Silver, and his debut as a leader on Blue Note Records.
