The Copenhagen Jazz House claims to be Denmark's best jazz house. They focus on presenting high quality domestic and international jazz acts. Jazz house has an interesting way of delineating between musical tastes and genres, and has split its club into 10 profiles:
For those who love swing music, from 'the golden era'. Toe-tapping, hip shaking swing played by an in-house band and various high profile guests. Magicians and tap dancers work through the crowd, and absinthe is served... a real throwback to the early 20th century.
A fusion of electronic music and instruments with the tempos and standards of jazz.
Self explanatory; international guest performers playing high class jazz.
Copenhagen Jazz House's more experimental side.
A combination of poetry, jazz and visuals.
Taking some of Denmark's most talented young jazz musicians, Jazz House gives them a platform to show their skill and make a name for themselves.
Some of Denmark and the world's best jazz players are given space to improvise and experiment with this theme.
Showcasing musical fusion styles from around the world; Latin, afro, hip hop, flamenco, and some less well known genres. Speaking between countries with the common language of music.
Classic Jazz Club
A modern day traditional jazz club, offering international soloists the stage for consecutive days (with a Danish backing band.) Fine, classical jazz in modern surroundings.
Nights hosted independently of Jazz House.
Copenhagen Jazz House has a very long and rich history and considers itself a direct descendent of the most famous and important jazz club in Denmark, the Jazzhus Montmartre that began in the sixties.
