Svend Asmussen: Rhythm Is Our Business


Publisher: Storyville Records
Artist: Svend Asmussen
Format: Audio / Video | Recorded Performance
Svend Asmussen is a world famous jazz-violinist and entertainer. He is now 93 years old and still going strong.

He has had a lot of different groups during the years. On this CD with recordings from 1953, 1958 and 1963 he plays with his quintet, sextet and a duo with guitarist Ulrik Neumann. The recordings were made in Hamburg, Germany, a city to which he was a frequent visitor in those years. The sound is fantastic and so is the selection of the standard tunes they play. Svend Asmussen and his quintet/sextet were at their peak.

Storyville Records are very happy to be releasing this album of unissued material from one of the greatest jazz-musicians from Denmark.
