About the album

On September 28, 2011, the pride of Peter Bangs Vej burned to the ground. The empty lot conjures up memories for several generati-
ons of athletes and rock and jazz fans with each his own story of KB Hallen. Originally built for sports, jazz music often filled the hall with sweating audiences and atmosphere. This double CD set is a musical documentation of KB Hallen – the most important concert
venue in Copenhagen of the 1950’s. For a decade the hall was the setting for initial encounters with many of the finest American jazz
artists. From old New Orleans giants to the young comets in Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, whose playing hinted at what would be
happening on stages around the city from the 1960’s and onwards. We have presented the music chronologically. It has not been pos-
sible to find recordings from all of the many concerts, but there is plenty of music to discover. It is a delight listening to the CD from beginning to end – with many pleasant surprises along the way – but we are certain that you will soon find your own personal
favorites.
