About the album

PAPA BUE (Arne Bue Jensen) celebrated his 80th birthday on May 8th, an occasion which Storyville commemorates with a 4-CD boxed set containing 80 of his most memorable recordings. It is a remarkable journey that starts with two tracks by the Bohana Jazzband—the group that launched Papa Bue’s long recording career— and continues with a broad cross section of performances by Papa Bue’s Viking Jazzband.

This is the spirited group that for many years toured throughout Europe and across the sea, where even the Crescent City itself welcomed enthusiastically a joyous echo of its own tradition with that distinct Papa Bue touch.

The anniversary box comes with an illustrated booklet and contains guest appearances by some of the many distinguished jazz icons who shared stages and bandstands with the Vikings, legends like George Lewis, Wingy Manone, Edmond Hall, Art Hodes, Wild Bill Davison and Champion Jack Dupree.

The selections include some of the band’s biggest hits, such as the million-seller, Schlafe Mein Prinschen, Praise of Nyboder, The Olsen Gang Theme, Bonanza, Blueberry Hill, White Cliffs of Dover and What A Wonderful World. In short, this is a box filled with abundant sounds!
