SCCD 31228 Johnny Lives / Pierre Dørge & New Jungle Orchestra

As its name suggests the undertone of this almost big band is African music, for which the South African bassist Johnny Mbizo Dyani had been a great contributor. A few months after Dyani’s untimely death, the guitarist/bandleader Dørge dedicated this recording to the bassist.

“… In Pierre Dørge and Jungle Orchestra, jazz and the world music meet in harmony…the best band in today’s universal jazz …” (Jens Gjedsted, Det Fri Aktuelt)
