Togetherness – Syskonparet Monica D & Palle D möts på scen!
Efter många år av musicerande på varsitt håll förenas nu Monica och Palle på konsertscenen, där vi får njuta av syskonens spontana och tajta dialogsamspel i ett livesammanhang.
Vi bjuds på välkända standards, en knippe Michel Legrand och lite annat. Även om Monica Dominique är en musikalisk mångsysslare har jazzen alltid varit i förgrunden och hon inspireras av artister som Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter och Herbie Hancock. Hon har både varit medlem i den legendariska sånggruppen Gals & Pals och i allmusikgruppen Solar Plexus. 2003 kom CD’n ”Bird Woman” med hennes kvintett MDQ (Monica Dominique Quintet). Palle Danielsson är en av våra internationellt mest kända jazzmusiker. Han turnerar flitigt i såväl Europa som Asien och har spelat med storheter som bl.a. Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett, Steve Kuhn, Michel Petrucciani, Peter Erskine och John Taylor. 1994 bildade han sin egen kvartett Contra Post med Rita Marcotulli, piano, Joakim Milder, saxofoner och Anders Kjellberg, trummor. Förutom trio-LP:n ”Tillägnan” som Palle & Monica spelade in med trummisen Leroy Lowe 1980, medverkar de båda i inspelningarna av Monicas storbandssviter ”Swedish love in the Southern Bronx” (1986) och ”Inside the rainbow” (1988). 2011 gav Monica och Palle ut den lovordade CDn ”Togetherness”.
In English: Since their childhood, the siblings' have been performing music together.
In concert, we are invited into their wondrous world of musicianship; full of spontaneous interaction, melodic lyricism and rhythmic subtleties, using songs composed by Cole Porter, David Raksin, Richard Rodgers, Michel Legrand, Thelonious Monk, Claude Debussy, Kenny Wheeler and Matt Dennis as a foil for their sonic flights of fancy.
Monica Dominique is a Swedish jazz pianist, arranger and composer. She took to
her family?s piano almost before she could walk and decided early that music was to
be in her life. When she entered the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm in 1957
she was already a well-established pianist. Since then she has played with musicians
like Monica Zetterlund, Carla Bley, Toots Thielemans, Tony Coe, Jim Hall and Wolfgang Puschnig. From 1969-1975 she was member of the cult prog-rock group Solar Plexus.
She is a composer of songs as well as music for big band, theatre, musicals, radio and TV.
In 2002 she formed her jazz quintet Monica Dominique Quintet (MDQ). For several years she has also played á quatre mains with her husband Carl-Axel classical as well as improvised music.
Palle Danielsson is the younger brother of Monica Dominique. When he was 18 he played with The Bill Evans trio and after that he has worked with well-known musicians such as Keith Jarrett, Jan Garbarek, Charles Lloyd, Kenny Wheeler and Michel Petrucciani.
During the 90?s he recorded and toured regularly with the pianist John Taylor and drummer Peter Erskine and was also a member of the Swedish folk music constellation Nordan. He has also for many years played with Bobo Stensen. In 1994 he formed his own quartet “Contra Post” with Rita Marcotulli, piano, Joakim Milder, saxophones and Anders Kjellberg, drums.
In 1980, together with drummer Leroy Lowe, Monica and Palle recorded the trio album, “Dedication”. Since then, they have both been involved in the recordings of Monica's big band suites; "Swedish Love in the Southern Bronx" (1986) and "Inside the Rainbow" (1988).
