Fischer had his debut at the age of 17 when he played at the Copenhagen Jazz Festival. Around the same time he also won a competition arranged by national Danish newspaper Berlingske Tidende with a band which included Chris Minh Doky on bass and Nikolaj Hess on piano. This led to the first engagement at the legendary jazz club Jazzhus Montmartre in Copenhagen. In 1992 he became a member of Svend Asmussen quartet. Since then he has played in numerous ensembles and with the entire Danish jazz elite, including Allan Botschinsky, Jesper Thilo, Finn Ziegler, Bob Rockwell and The Danish Radio's bigband.
He has also formed duos with the guitarist Doug Raney and the bassists Hugo Rasmussen and Mads Vinding. He has also played with international jazz musicians such as Toots Thielemans, Art Farmer, Lee Konitz, Gary Bartz, John Abercrombie, Scott Hamilton, Adam Nussbaum, Putte Vickman, Jan Allan and Jerry Bergonzi.
