I’m very proud an honored to be receiving the Ellen & Svend Asmussen Prize!

To me Svend was one of the greatest musicians we have ever had in Denmark. His musicality, whit and showmanship was outstanding and until the end he was curious about new talent in jazz and even came out to my concerts. I’m humbled and proud to be able to call him my friend and to receive this prize.
