Jepsen, Jørgen Grunnet locked


(b Aug 1927; d Copenhagen, Aug 24, 1981). Danish discographer. As a member of the staff of Orkester journalen from 1953 to 1965 he wrote a regular column and compiled discographies of such musicians as Clifford Brown, Gerry Mulligan, Sonny Rollins, Art Pepper, Benny Carter, and Cecil Taylor; in all he contributed more than 100 discographies to this journal and to English, American, French, and Belgian periodicals. From the late 1950s he also compiled discographies that were published separately; these cover the careers of Thelonious Monk, Bud Powell, Fats Navarro, Brown, and others. His most important work, Jazz Records, 1942–[1969] (1963–70), was the first widely available general jazz discography to give information on recordings of the postwar era.
