Niels Henning Orsted Petersen


Recommended Posts

I was hipped to this cat by a friend in Las Vegas. According to Mike Jones , Ray Brown was "the greatest URB player". Now Niels Henning Orsted Petersen holds that title. I'm going to be buying some CD's to check him out for myself.


I was curious if any of you other jazz kids out there have heard this guy play.


Oh yes, and if you're into solo jazz piano, Jonesy is absolutely terrifying.

I've heard him on various dates reaching back maybe into the sixties. I wasn't aware he'd slugged it out with Eddie Gomez, Charlie Haden, David Holland, or a few other cats. But I knew he was in their weight class.

Love the Chops recording with Joe Pass as well. I heard a cut on the radio one day of Roy Eldrige live at Montreaux and NHOP was the bass player. In fact I was so intrigued by the bass on that recording that I came home and called the radio station to find out what recording it came from. The tune they were playing was Bye Bye Blackbird.



I have basses to play, places to be and good music to make!
