Fessor (a.k.a. Ole Lindgreen) is alive and well. He has become the quintessence of the love of jazz – real jazz. He’s the hero of the young ones in Denmark and has strong ties to three generations’ experience of live music with beat and feeling. Since WWII, almost 40 albums have been released in his name on Storyville and Olufsen Records. He has played from Kap Horn (a jazz joint in Copenhagen) to New Orleans, to most of Europe, West Africa and Brazil - with bands like Fessor’s Big City Band, Nulle and Verdensorkestret, and Papa Bue Revival. The music on this album was recorded around the dining table in Fessor’s living room with Morten Ærø in charge, an adroit soundman (and drummer). A totally relaxed atmosphere with feeling and warmth emanating from every tune. Morten Ærø also handles the drums on the album, where the rest of the line-up consists of Peter Maroti on trumpet and flugelhorn, Chris Tanner on clarinet, Jakob Dinesen on tenor saxophone, Marko Martinovic on piano, Jens Sølund on bass. Glad to Be Here consists of a variety of Fessors own compositions and songs that has had a meaningful impact on his life and career.
