Bent Fabricius-Bjerre (b. December 7, 1924)—better known for many years as Bent Fabric—is a Danish jazz and pop pianist and composer whose long career spanning numerous genres, and spare, lyric piano style, has often been overshadowed by his longtime signature composition and hit, the 1962 instrumental “Alley Cat.”
The 21st Century saw him make a comeback in pop music, under the stage name by which he’s best known, with a dance/pop project that leaned in part on modernising many of his earlier songs including “The Alley Cat.” The title track from the project, Jukebox, became a hit in his native Denmark, a chart-topper in Japan, and a sleeper hit in the United States; its title track was used in a Coca Cola campaign in Germany and now used on ten different soundtracks for American movies.
