* Svend Asmussen, 93-year-old elder statesmen of jazz violin, still makes excellent music! A household name in Scandinavia, he has performed with Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Hoagy Carmichael, and Fats Waller.
* This CD presents a rare opportunity to hear a legendary jazz violinist who played with both cult-guitarist gypsy Django Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grappelli.
* Asmussen is joined by his Danish guitarist of 15 years, Jacob Fischer, and their joyful musical empathy is wonderful to hear.
"While striving to avoid clichés like the plague, there seems only one way to describe Danish jazz violinist Svend Asmussen: he is still going strong ... While it must be daunting to play with a living legend, guitarist Jacob Fischer--25 when this was recorded--puts in sterling work throughout." -- All About Jazz
