BLUES FOR MONTMARTRE

 Montmartre in Copenhagen was in the 1960’s one of the true jazz corners of the world. Many great musicians were on the run from American racism and the New York drug scene. In Denmark they were admired for their artistic values - and the friendly Danish girls were a special attraction. Ben Webster, Stan Getz, Dexter Gordon, Lee Konitz, Stuff Smith and Bud Powell appear in the film.

Jazz enthusiasts, who remember Montmartre, tell funny and moving anecdotes, and the film also includes several Danish musicians for whom it was invaluable to play with the greatest soloists in their early youth, among them tenorist John Tchicai, drummer Alex Riel and bassist Bo Stief .

 
The Danish press was enthusiastic:
 
"A film about the love for jazz, beautiful, swinging and with respect for tradition." - Politiken.
 
"The music carresses the ear." - Jyllandsposten.
 
"Exciting performances, lots of information and enthusiasm." - Berlingske Tidende.
