Jepsen, Jørgen Grunnet
(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– (1963–70), was the first widely available general jazz discography to give information on recordings of the postwar era.
