MODERN STANDARDS SUPERGROUP features an international stellar cast of musicians that includes three of America’s greatest jazz legends of all time Billy Cobham, Randy Brecker, and Bill Evans, in addition to the French bass virtuoso François Moutin, and the Danish jazz pianist Niels Lan Doky.
The MODERN STANDARDS project was initiated by Niels Lan Doky who for most of his career has been a strong advocate for renewal of the jazz standard repertoire. Throughout his vast discography, he has experimented extensively with interpretations of contemporary pop songs.
Since January Niels Lan Doky has offered a monthly series of brand new jazz takes on current songs - including songs by The Weeknd, Billie Eilish, Anderson Paak, Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Black Eyed Peas, Shakira and the likes.
