MORE DANISH PASTRIES

NIELS THYBO QUINTET
SONGS FOR SASHA
LP STUNT RECORDS,  DENMARK, 1984

I haven’t seen this album anywhere in the blogsphere so far (except the track “Samba Song”).  It’s a fairly decent album.  Nice melodies, good playing, a couple of songs groove nicely (“Samba Song”).  All in all, it sounds very European / Nordic/ mid-eighties with obvious ECM influences.  Give it a listen!

Niels Thybo is a Danish pianist and composer.  His musical interest and activities encompass a wide range of  musical styles.


“... One of Denmark’s leading jazz pianists and composers.. Thybo is a world class musician with strong ties to the jazz tradition but very European roots...” (The Tenor Clef, London jazz festival)


Band members

Jan Zum Vohrde : alto & soprano saxophone / flute
Lars Togeby: flugelhorn
Bo Stief : bass
Niels Thybo: piano
Henrik Simonsen: drums
(The sleeve picture names two Henrik Simonsen, the bassplayer and the drummer but Brian pointed out that the bassman on the picture is Bo Stief.). 



Side one:

Samba Song (6:08)
Gratitude (8:10)

Side two
Welcome Home (5:15)

Lyon Love Song (4:10)
