The Billy Moore Collection

In 2008 and again in 2015, the library received from Flemming Sjølund Jensen a collection which had belonged to the composer, arranger and pianist Billy Moore (1917-1989), who resided in Copenhagen for the last 20 years of his life.
The collection includes handwritten arrangements and compositions for big band and for the vocal group Delta Rhythm Boys, which Moore accompanied on the piano for a number of years in the 1960s. In addition, the collection contains a number of private and professional letters, papers, and drafts of compositions and arrangements.
