Oslo Jazz Festival 1995

There was an extra concert this year, Svend Asmussen’s Quartet at the Gamle Logen, an event that was also broadcast live on Norwegian television. Just before the concert was to begin Svend asked the sold out audience, “How many of you were here the last time I played here.” About six hands were raised. He thanked them for coming back. The last time he’d played in this concert hall was before World War II in 1939.
