Arne "Papa" Bue Jensen (8 May 1930 - 2 November 2011), known as Papa Bue, was a Danish trombonist & b&leader, chiefly associated with the Dixiel& jazz revival style of which he was considered an important proponent. He founded & led the Viking Jazz B&, which was active from 1956. Arne Bue Jensen was born in Copenhagen, Denmark. At an early age, he became fascinated with jazz, prompted by a pile of records from his brother with artists such as Harry James, Artie Shaw, Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller & Bert Ambrose. Some records by Bunk Johnson & George Lewis reviving the New Orleans musical made a particular impression. After World War II, Jensen became a sailor for a few years, visiting ports all around the world, where he had an opportunity to listen to enjoy their often lively music venues. It was around this time that he started to play jazz. For borrowed money, which it would take him years to repay, he bought a slide trombone. He was taught the seven basic positions of the slide by a musician from the Royal Danish Orchestra but apart from that he was self-taught. Soon he played with other young jazz musicians & performed in clubs & bars around Copenhagen. He played in b&s such as the Royal Jazzman (later the Bohana Jazz B&), Henrik Johansen's Jazz B& & the Saint Peter Street Stompers, participating as a sideman in several of their recordings. In the 1950s, Papa Bue worked with the Bonanza Jazz B&, Chris Barber, Adrian Bentzon & Henrik Johansen. In the mid 1950s, he was part of the musical environment of the entertainment district around Nyhavn. He jammed with other young jazz musicians in various informal arrangements &, along with six other musicians, he founded the New Orleans Jazz B& in 1956, after a jam session in the establishment 'Cap Horn'. Since Jensen was the eldest he became the b&leader &, as he was also the only b& member who was a father, he was given the nickname "Papa Bue" which stuck. In late 1957, Jensen renamed the ensemble the Viking Jazz B&. The name came from the American journalist & vocalist Shel Silverstein who attended one of their concerts at Cap Horn during a stay in Copenhagen. He subsequently wrote an article about them, calling them the Danish Vikings, explaining that they played the original New Orleans & Chicago jazz even better than any American b& at the time. The b& adopted the new name & released their first album as the Viking Jazz B& in 1958. In 1960 their "Schlafe Mein Prinzchen" sold over one million copies, & was awarded a gold disc. At a time when many jazz musicians worked in the Bebop idiom, his style remained based on the Dixiel& tradition but also with influences from early swing music. He is considered one of the most significant proponents of his genre. The group remained active into the 1990s, & recorded with musicians such as George Lewis (1959), Champion Jack Dupree (1962), Art Hodes (1970), Wild Bill Davison (1970, 1974), Wingy Manone, Edmond Hall & Albert Nicholas. They also played with George Lewis, Earl Hines, Stuff Smith, Ben Webster. Wild Bill Davison was a permanent b& member. Jensen released a large number of albums, many of them issued or reissued on Storyville Records, Timeless Records, & Music Mecca. It was Papa Bue's Viking Jazz B& which recorded Bent Fabricius-Bjerre's theme music for the Olsen Gang series, now a legendary sequence for the Danes. In 1969, Papa Bue's Viking Jazz B& was the only non-American b& to participate in the New Orleans Jazz Festival & Jensen was honored with the "Golden Keys to the City". Papa Bue died on 2 November 2011, at the age of 81.
