Django was born in a house near New Beckenham Station. A ropy, semitone flat D'Almaine Piano was the most fascinating toy in the house. He found the clatter of railway workers working throughout the night comforting, but had reoccurring nightmares about a Hippopotamus head slowly moving from one side of the ceiling to the other, and of having fluttering moths stuck between his toes.

The door kept flying open as they trundled through France, Austria, Italy, Romania and Yugoslavia

At seventy-seven, the Norwegian bassist offers the almost entirely improvised Affirmation. Andersen is joined by ...
