Mike andersen kl vers big band

Klüvers Big Band is a Danish big band. It was formed in 1977 by a group of young music students under the leadership of Jens Klüver. Since then the orchestra has worked with a long line of international and Danish soloists. It has recently toured in Europe with Kurt Elling.


In 2002 Klüver received the Ben Webster Prize in recognition of his work with the big band.

In 2012 Klüver retired, handing over to Lars Møller, at which point the band was renamed the Aarhus Jazz Orchestra.
