Malene Mortensen is a Danish jazz singer with eleven albums
out. Malene has recorded with some of the biggest names in
modern jazz: Chris Potter, Mike Stern, Christian Sands, George
Whitty and Niels Henning-Orsted Pedersen. This year she will be
on an American tour with musicians like Chad Wackerman,
Jimmy Haslip, Mitch Forman and Jeff Richman.
Malene is the incarnation of what the spirits of jazz are: pursuing
freedom, improvisation, cultivating an exquisite taste with a
sensibility that goes deep down into gospel, soul and R&B to find
and reveal new treasures. Above all this, naturally, stands her
voice: warm, rich in color and expression, a voice guided by a
sense of rhythm and technical mastership going from moaning,
caressing, soaring, roaring, culminating with an ability to scat
that leaves you speechless.
Malene holds a Master’s Degree from The Royal Danish Jazz
(rhythmic) Conservatory. Fanart Banner
