About

Den internationalt anerkendte saxofonist Jesper Thilo har siden starten af 1960’erne og frem til i dag positioneret sig som en kolos i det europæiske jazzlandskab. Kendt fra Arnvid Meyers Orkester, Danmarks Radios Big Band og diverse ensembler af national og international karakter, har Jesper Thilo sat et markant aftryk på dansk jazz og været garant for et tårnhøjt musikalsk niveau. Han var bl.a. den første til at modtage Ben Webster prisen i 1977. En pris som i 1999 blev tildelt Olivier Antunes.

Bl.a. viste Danmarks Radio en portrætudsendelse i prime time af pianisten i 1999, hvor Olivier blev bakket op af Alex Riel og Mads Vinding i et propfyldt Copenhagen Jazzhouse....

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!
