Allan Botschinsky Quintet - Live At The Tivoli Gardens 1996 - CD
Danish trumpeter Allan Botschinsky's legacy as one of the greatest Scandinavian musicians of all time is now the stuff of legand, with glimpses of his creative and virtuosic voice remaing in recordings. The tragically underappreciated trumpet and cornet player was named Danish Jazz Musician of the Year in 1963 and came to even greater notoriety in the 70s and 80s before moving to Germany and London and slipping into public anonymity.
Stunt Records have unearthed some particularly unique and inspiring material from a 1996 Allan Botschinsky Quintet concert at Jazzhus Slukefter in Copenhagen's Tivoli Gardens. The recording is fully intact and fresh with 'pure jazz cut from the cloth of standards and bebop.' It's simply jazz, at its very best.
Allan Botschinsky - flugelhorn; Bent Jaedig - tenor saxophone; Jacob Fischer - guitar; Jesper Lundgaard - bass; Alex Riel - drums
