NHØP is the greatest Danish jazz name ever. His name echoes all over the world. NHØP turned the bass into a solo instrument equal to other instruments; he created a different style and developed new ways for the double bass.

His technical level and musical understanding continues to challenge all other bassists. NHØP is where the Danish bass tradition origins and he is the reason why Denmark is the proud home to a series of bassists of international standards.

A great part of his own musical education took place on the Montmartre stage, where he played from the age of 15.

His most important inspiration was Oscar Pettiford who was also strongly connected to Montmartre.

Therefore, we are very proud to celebrate our great bassist in collaboration with BASS2012, Ole Kock Hansen, Alex Riel and a number of Danish and international star bassists for two days.

NHØP er Danmarks største jazznavn gennem tiderne. Et navn som giver genlyd over hele verden.

NHØP gjorde bassen til et soloinstrument på niveau med de andre instrumenter, en stilskaber, som udviklede en helt ny skole for kontrabassen.

Hans tekniske niveau og musikalske indsigt vil altid være en udfordring for alle andre bassister.

NHØP er stamfaderen til den danske nybassisme, som betyder, at Danmark kan bryste sig af en stribe bassister i international klasse.

Hans egen musikalske uddannelse foregik i vid udstrækning på scenen i Montmartre, hvor han spillede, allerede fra han var 15 år.

Selv var han inspireret af Oscar Pettiford, der også havde en stærk tilknytning til Montmartre.

Vi er derfor meget stolte over at kunne fejre vores store bassist i samarbejde med BASS2012, Ole Kock Hansen, Alex Riel og en stribe danske og udenlandske stjernebassister over hele to dage.
