Bentzon began winning awards at the age of 19, when he was selected best soloist at the Dunkerque Jazz Festival. In 1983 he was selected as the first jazz musician to receive the prestigeous Jacob Gade Award, and soon afterward went on to Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he won the Oscar Peterson Jazz Award in 1985, and from which he graduated i 1986.
Bentzon continues to win awards, such as the Danish Jazz, Rock and Folk Composers´ Honorary Award for original compositions. Double prizewinner at the Annual International Jazz Theme Competition in Monaco and winner of European Jazz Federation´s annual "Jazz Contest". Co-composing and piano duo performances with his father, the well-respected composer Niels Viggo Bentzon, brought Bentzon early critical attention and acclaim.
As a working jazz musician, Bentzon has played with the likes of Clark Terry, Red Rodney, Phil Woods, Michael Gibbs, David Sanborn, Maria Schneider, John Scofield, Van Morrison, Bob Brookmeyer, Palle Mikkelborg, NHOP, Toots Thielemans, Herb Pomeroy, Tom Harrell, Joe Lavano, Steve Swallow, Carla Bley, Ivan Lins, and Joe Henderson. Member of Basie-arranger Ernie Wilkins´ "Almost Big Band", and the critically acclaimed Nikolaj Bentzon Trio ( with five CD releases of their own ) was the mainstay of the rhythm section of the US grammy-award winning Danish Radio big band for several years. Bentzon plays a key role in the running and developement of the Danish Radio big band as a pianist, conductor, composer, and arranger.
