Think of the dancefloors of the rare groove scene of the ’80s, with dancers strutting to the finest of jazz, funk and Latin tunes, and you’ll have a good idea where compilers DJ Wunderbaum and Master Fatman are coming from. Since Copenhagen served as a longtime haven to many expatriate American jazz musicians-including Kenny Drew and Dexter Gordon-the origin should come as no surprise. What’s surprising is the quality, depth and variety of these tracks, recorded in Denmark by musicians of all nations between the ’60s and the ’80s. A shining testament to the history of the Danish scene.
