Sahib Shihab: And the Danish Radio Jazz Group

Read "And the Danish Radio Jazz Group" reviewed by George Kanzler


Made in the mid-'60s, over a decade before Thad Jones led the Danish Radio Big Band, this gem of an album offers more evidence of the centrality of Denmark to the modern, post-World War II jazz scene. It's also a forceful reminder of the limitations of the “great names" approach to jazz history, where such worthy ...

Sahib Shihab: Sahib Shihab and the Danish Radio Jazz Group

Read "Sahib Shihab and the Danish Radio Jazz Group" reviewed by Douglas Payne


Sahib Shihab (1925-1989) played alongside such greats as Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Tadd Dameron, and Art Blakey in the 1940s and 50s.

Charlie Parker/Arne Domnerus: In Sweden (Nov. 22, 1950)

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
