Remembering Billy Strayhorn
feat. John Ruocco and Thomas Fryland
We were proud to present John Ruocco in Denmark for the first time ever!! He gave two concerts exclusively in Prøvehallen, an important event for musicians who are inspired by “the secret genius” – and a fantastic “once in a lifetime” experience for the jazz audience in Copenhagen. his concert was a tribute to Billy Strayhorn, who was the composer behind many of the Duke Ellington classics.
John Ruocco : tenor sax
Thomas Fryland ; trompet
Rasmus Ehlers; Piano
Thomas Raae; Kontrabas
Jacob Roved; Drums
The artists, who painted during the concerts were: Jeff Ibbo, Grethe Tranberg, Mogens Kischinovsky, Lisbeth Meinecke, Mikala Lykke, Morten Bertelsen m.fl.
There were 3 ways that the artpainters interacted with the music and the mucisians:
1) Artpainters painting in the koncerthall, insrirated by the jazzmusic.
2) Artbattle on 2,5 X 10 meter canvas in a hall, beside the koncerthall. More artist painted on the big canvas, and it was alowed to overpaint – to encourage and to coorberate.
Photos from the artbattle on one of the canvas. Lisbeth Meincke, Grete Tranberg og Mikala Lykke artbattled on the 2 big canvases.
The photos beneth shows how the process took place on one of the canvases.
