SCCD 36003 Axen / Bent Axen Trio, Quintet & Sextet

"… These young Danes displayed a remarkable maturity and a sure grasp of the idioms of the day…Bent Axen, a pianist who showed tremendous facility in absorbing American influences…and transmuting them into something which was full of character…. The trio date represents NHØP's first recording session. You will simply not believe from the aural evidence that he was just 14 years old at the time. " (Richard Williams, Melody Maker)
