Papa Bue’s Viking Jazzband began its recording career in 1956 and went on until Arne “Bue” Jensen died in November 2011.

The band was one of the most popular traditional Jazz Bands in Europe. The big three were Chris Barber, Papa Bue and Acker Bilk.

Papa Bue did a lot of recordings and was number one on the Hit Parade in many countries with Schlafe Mein Prinschen. It sold more than a million records, which was a lot for a jazz record. During their career they many American jazz musicians visited Denmark. The first was George Lewis with whom they toured and recorded. The second was the hilarious New Orleans born blues singer and piano player Champion Jack Dupree. Then came clarinet player Edmond Hall and trumpet player Wingy Manone. After them piano player Art Hodes and clarinet player Albert Nicholas and finally trumpet player Wild Bill Davison. There are 2 or 3 tracks with all of them on this CD.

Reviews

"Always out of date, but still timeless in its quality and energy, traditional jazz is served amazingly well and hot here on this collection of sessions lead by the Danish trombone legend. American artists that join him here reads like a Who's Who: George Lewis, Champion Jack Dupree, Edmond Hall, Wingy Manone, Art Hodes, Albert Nicholas, and Wild Bill Davison. Just the names of these guys alone tell you the difference between the musicians on this disc and the stars of today. Just who now has a nicname even REMOTELY as cool as 'Wingy'? The music here is full of energy, and above all, each guy playing has his own sound. WHAT A CONCEPT! Dupree's vocals on 'See See Rider' will get your head spinning, while Manone will split your sides as he wisecracks through 'Dark Eyes'. Nicholas teams up with local licorice stick player Jorgen Svare for some sinewy sensations on 'Stack O'Lee Blues' and a swinging 'I've Found A New Baby'. Davison's horn stomps through 'Rosetta' while Edmond Hall floats like a screwball on 'Ed's Blues'. As a true confession, I'm not even the biggest fan of this kind of playing, but you can't help but appreciate that these guys are playing with a joy and energy that is about as common these days as a shrimp at a bar mitzvah. It reminds me of the story of a famous atheis who used to hear sermons preached by Charles Haddon Spurgeon. When he as asked if he was going because he believed the message, he replied, 'No, but HE does'. Sometimes that makes all the difference." George W. Harris
