An American and a Frenchman join a Dane on his home ground at Copenhagen's famous Tivoli Gardens. But jazz is the real home ground and the common language of these world-class musicians, and the magic of their artistry fills the air of a summer night in Denmark. Stephane Grappelli, a mere youngster of 71 when this was recorded in 1979, was and is the dean of jazz violinists; Joe Pass one of the great guitarists of the second half of the 20th century; Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen a bassist whose power, sophistication, and swing have made him a cherished colleague of many of the reigning jazz masters. Their encounter here may have been carefully rehearsed, but it has the characteristics of a jam session full of surprises and joy.
