Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen, 
"Dancing On The Tables", 1979

Famous for his work as a teenager in Europe playing with veteran American greats, and for his many recordings as a sidemen with the veteran straight-ahead jazz all-stars for the Pablo label (including Oscar Peterson), bassist Niels Pedersen's own projects tend to be more modern than bop-oriented. Dancing on the Tables songs For this set, Pedersen's quartet includes three rather notable sidemen: the then fairly unknown guitarist John Scofield; drummer Billy Hart; and Dave Liebman on tenor, soprano, and alto flute. Dancing on the Tables album The bassist contributed four compositions, which are joined by a Danish folk song. ~ Scott Yanow
