A Swingin' and Dynamic Performance from Sweden's Jazz Pianist Extraordinaire Jorgensen!

Knud Jorgensen, one of Sweden's best swing pianists, here together with Sture Akerberg on bass and Johan Dielemans on drums. Knud offers his own, personal and dynamic interpretations of numerous classics of swing: Satin Doll, Too Late Now, You Look Good To Me, My Heart Stood Still, etc.

"Come now, there aren't any volcanoes in Denmark!" I hear you cry. As every schoolboy ought to know, the highest mountain in Denmark is so small that, standing on tiptoe, you can plant your flag on the summit without climbing an inch. True indeed - but you are forgetting Knud Jörgensen! Naturalized Swede he may be, but he makes no secret of his antecedents. His way of speaking tells you as much, though his musical language is international. This, then, is the Danish volcano. Do not be deceived by the titles on this record. No question here of easy jazz or cocktail piano. Musical Molotov Cocktails would be an adapter description. Primitive power, dynamite, and dynamics." - Lars O'Månsson

"The fact is, the piano playing is so abundantly varied that the recording is quite un-turn-offable. Elegantly weightless loops of melody mingle with raunchy harmonies in a high-voltage crackling" - Musik & Ljudteknik
