Svend Asmussen celebrates his 100th birthday on February 28, 2016. Storyville Records celebrates the Danish Jazz legend's centenary with a 5 cd + 1 dvd box set which explores his musical production through the years.
“Svend Asmussen is light, precise, and yet profound; a consummate entertainer, a creative thinker, and an artist. And that combination is rare!” (Finnish jazzviolinist Ari Poutianinen, Jazz Special 149)
