Jazz drummer, composer, producer and cultural personality. He was born in 1963 in Copenhagen and studied percussion at The Royal Danish Academy of Music with Hans Fulling. Later on, he went to Boston to study jazz composition and arrangement at the Berklee College of Music.
As a musician he started as drummer in the band Page One, with whom he recorded the album Beatin’Bop. From 1998-1999 he was head of the record company ManRec. He has won five Danish Grammies both as musician, songwriter and producer, has written prize-winning film music, and has worked with a lot of internationally known jazz musicians. His genre-transcending work navigates nonchalantly along the border between the mainstream and the ultra-hip.
