Svend Asmussen

"Viloniste danois né à Copenhague le 28 février 1916. Influencé par Stuff Smith, est un des musiciens de jazz européens les plus réputés."

 

Here Panassié doesn't mention he's white. In the 50's when you're from Europe you had to be white and at the time othe book was published he should have been one of the most reputated jazz musicians. Is this because of the influence of Stuff Smith or did Panassié indeed evaluate him on his own merits. If so why doesn't he mention any records Asmussen recorded or musicians he played with?
