Bert Boeren was all set to come to Copenhagen next week for a series of Bebop concerts that would blow the socks off of anyone lucky enough to be in the audience. We are still playing two of the concerts with a superb quartet that was put together to feature the world renowned trombonist. Bert, however, will not be with us.
Unfortunately, due to a number of venues making somewhat late alterations to there live music program, we have had to ask Bert if he would mind doing this tour at another time, when we will book a run of concerts that reflect his stature in the music world. We simply felt that he deserved better, even though he was perfectly willing to fulfil his promise and come and play the two concerts that we have remaining for next week.

In the summer of 2008 a few, short, video clips of an acoustic jazz duo received over 100,000 views on YouTube and the attention of American Express with regard to an advertising campaign. The combination of the English born bassist Peter Williams (known for his contribution to Woody Allen’s Grammy winning soundtrack for Midnight in Paris) and Danish vibraphonist Jacob Svensson had some serious appeal.
With Jazzy Shorts Peter Williams has composed a collection of original tunes to explore the sound-scape that such an exposed and somewhat eccentric combination of instruments makes possible.

‘Midnight In Paris‘ beat out ‘The Descendants‘, the Bob Marley documentary ‘Marley‘, ‘The Muppets‘ and the musical ‘Rock Of Ages‘. The soundtrack features music from various artists including Allen’s band mate, Conal Fowkes, and the actual recipient of the award is to be determined. The award was one of many that was awarded before the televised event.
Den britiske jazzmusiker og komponist Peter Williams, der er bosat i Danmark, er med på soundtracket til Woody Allens film Midnight in Paris. Soundtracket vandt en Grammy for ”Best Compilation Soundtrack For Visual Media” ved den 55. Grammy-uddeling, der fandt sted 10. februar
Da den 55. udgave af Grammy Awards forleden løb af stablen vandt soundtracket til Woody Allen-filmen Midnight In Paris en pris for ”Best Compilation Soundtrack For Visual Media”. På filmens lydspor finder man bla. danske Swing 41’s udgave af Seul Ce Soir. Bandets bassist Peter Williams er bosiddende i København og medlem af DMF’s københavnsafdeling.
I am full of anticipatory nerves as I wait to find out if I have contributed to a Grammy winning Album. It was more than enough reward for having worked hard on the swing 41 album that Woody Allen used a track from it. A grammy win would be amazing. http://movieline.com/2012/12/06/grammy-nominations-movies/
