Ralph Sutton visited Copenhagen a number of times and played with the local musicians. On this CD he plays solo, duo, quartet, sextet and septet with the best Danish musicians. Ralph Sutton is a brilliant stride piano player who played timeless jazz. He was influenced by James P. Johnson and Fats Waller. On the sextet and septet session his fellow American Wild Bill Davison plays trumpet. His piano solo is Bix Beiderbecke’s famous composition In The Dark. This is a CD for fans that like timeless jazz played by very good musicians.


Wild Bill Davison - trumpet, Jesper Thilo - tenorsax, Ralph Sutton - piano, Lars Blach - guitar, Hugo Rasmussen - bass, Svend-Erik Nørregård - drums 

Recorded May 23-25, 1977 


"In Copenhagen reveals a restless, questing musical intelligence at work. But so, too, does it demonstrate someone striving for reconciliation with a life that, in the 1960s, saw him reduced to earning his living as a New York cab driver." Chris Mosey – AllAboutJazz
