Danstrup (b. 1954) is one of the most significant, meticulous and versatile artists in Denmark if you compare him to any other bassist and composer at his age. After a remarkably carrier on the jazz, rock and fusion scene in the seventies to mid-nineties, he was the progressive director of the Rhythmic Music Conservatory 1997-2005. After that he has released record after record showing his talent as a composer and arranger as well as a writer and video director. His work is now tending to be extensive creations, embracing a broad variety of styles, often biting commentaries on contemporary life, performed with a never failing sense of humor and sarcasm. His bass playing is setting new standards for the acoustic bass guitar, echoing first movers from Steve Swallow to John Entwistle.
