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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
