Svend Asmussen - Swing Violin Masterpieces Volume 1 - 1935-1940

Svend Asmussen, the legendary jazz violinist from Denmark has had an amazing career spanning more than 70 years in two centuries. In fact, as of 2009, Svend is still "svinging" at the age of 92! This four-volume collection contains 80 classic performances gleaned from his first 15 years as a recording artist.

The program includes selections from his first session recorded in Copenhagen, 1935, as well as the historic tracks he did with the Argentine swing guitar master Oscar Aléman. Svend was also a ground-breaking jazz vocalist and vibraphonist in Europe and his unique arrangements, vocal and instrumental, are featured here extensively.
