Svend Asmussen - Extraordinary Life and Music of a Jazz Legend DVD (Zone 1)
In terms of technical skill and performance, Copenhagen-born jazz violinist Sven Asmussen ranks among the best of the best - dexterous enough to draw instant comparisons to protégés Stephane Grappelli and Joe Venuti. A showman among showmen, Asmussen could hold an audience, rapt, in the palm of his hand. In the process, he worked with everyone from Edith Piaf to Fats Waller. This release actually consists of two programs featuring Asmussen - "The Good Old Days," an autobiographical treatment that intercuts fond reminiscences with archival footage, and "Music with Svend Asmussen," a feature-length compilation of performance clips headlined by the master musician, that extend back

into the 1930s.
