Bent Fabric

Biography

Although pianist Bent Fabric (given birth to Bent Fabricius-Bjerre) formed his very own jazz combo after WWII and his very own label (Metronome) in 1950, it wasn’t until 1961, when Fabric’s Alley Kitty one hit his indigenous Denmark’s airwaves, that he really became known within the music world. The tune demonstrated infectious, and premiered world-wide in 1962, also garnering an American Grammy Prize for Best Rock and roll & Move Record. Though Atlantic released even more of his function in the years that implemented, Fabric never really had another strike like “Alley Kitty.” In 2006, nevertheless, the Dane received a little bit of interest once again after Jukebox, a remixed recording of a few of his function, was released.
