The Allan Bo Quintet combines blues, swing and bebop with contemporary jazz.
The quintet consists of Finn Odderskov on the Tenor Saxophone, Ole Kock Hansen on the Piano, Bjarne Roupé on the Guitar and Aage Tanggaard on the Drums, with Allan Bo as bandleader. All five musicians have received great acclaim – Hansen was awarded the prestigious Django D’Or prize for his work with Danmarks Radio’s Big Band while Roupé is considered a Guitar legend in Denmark. The arrangements featured on this CD allow the artists to shine - both individually and as a group.
Allan Bo has been a bandleader for over 40 years and has worked as a sideman for several well-known jazz artists, including Finn Ziegler and Ben Webster. His vocals demonstrate unmistakable Harlem roots and he has been described as being ‘steady as a rock’ on Bass.
This CD includes the songs Good Morning Blues, Sister Sade, That Lucky Old Sun, Groovy Samba, Unchain My Heart, There'll Never Be Another You, You Don't Know Me, Sweet Emma, I Can't Give You Anything But Love and Watching The River Flow.
