Knud JørgensenKnud (* 1928) was a pianist and organist. He played with the Harry Arnold Orkester in the 1950s and with Rolf Billberg (Darn That Dream) in 1964. From the 1960s he led his own formations, such as the Knud Jørgensen Jazz Trio, Knud Jørgensens Kvartett and the Knud Jørgensens Orkester. In 1961/62 he recorded his debut album Piano & Voices in Rhythm (Metronome Records) in Stockholm with Jimmy Woode (double bass) and Sture Kallin (drums); the arrangements of jazz standards such as Cherokee, Exactly Like You, I Got Rhythm and Memories of You came from Georg Riedel. In 1961 he accompanied (with Jimmy Woode and William Schiøpffe) the singer Ella Fitzgerald at a studio session in København.
In the late '60s he put forth easy listening productions such as the LPs Beat on Hammond and What a Sound before returning to Modern Jazz. Knud died in 1992.
