Robert Uno Normann

Robert Normann was, and still is, a legend far beyond the borders of Norway. One person that recognized the genius in Normann's playing was Django Reinhardt, who is reported to have said: “Why do you want me to come to Norway? You've got Robert Normann!”

Normann's career from the 1930's onward involved moving from a succession of bands, and from dance hall to dance hall. But not even the most rigorous demands for “dance music” could prevent Normann from developing into a world class jazz musician, immortalized on fabulous CD's with practically everything he has played in, Robert Normann's collective works.
