The next installment of the Danish Jazz compilation is now available on ITunes, Google Play & Spotify. This time Storyville Archive brings you Danish Jazz Vol. 2 featuring the late great Danish Jazz pianist and composer Leo Mathisen. The songs have previously not been available on vinyl, except "Eps" and "De 24 røvere". They were originally released on Tono and have been collector’s items a long time. They originally came from the two last occupation years and the first post-war years, which were considered a very prolific period for Leo and his orchestra.
