The great jazz double bassist Hugo Rasmussen from Denmark has passed away… He’s been active since the 60’s making great records in a multitude of styles, but like most people of my generation (born in Denmark in the 70’s) I know him best from the many children’s records and TV shows he performed on in the 70’s and 80’s. I think the subliminal influence on Danish kids from his playing, as well as the other great musicians working on those projects, is something to acknowledge. He definately put a groove to the soundtrack of my childhood way before I even had an idea about what that means.
