New Joki FreundYogi Jazz ... CD
CBS/Sawano (Japan), 1963. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Tremendous early work from German saxophonist Joki Freund – a player who would go onto much greater fame in the progressive years at the end of the 60s, but who already sounds plenty darn great on this early combo side from 1963! The style of the work is incredibly hip – with a definite John Coltrane modal groove in place, but also a sense of globally conscious jazz that's very much in the spirit of classic Saba/MPS work, but which predates most of that by a number of years! Freund plays tenor and soprano sax here – in a sextet with Wolfgang Dauner on piano, Emil Mangelsdorff on flute and alto, Eberhard Weber on bass, Karl Theodor Geier on bass, and Peter Baumeister on drums – and the record is overflowing with great tunes that more than live up to the compelling title and cover image! Lots of "Eastern" styled numbers – and titles include "Aisha", "Carribean Ringo", "Yogiana", "HL 20", and "Killer Joe". CD

Wolfgang LauthNoch Lauther ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... $18.99 26.99
Early work from the great Wolfgang Lauth – a key figure in German modern jazz during the 50s, but an artist who never fully got his due on this side of the Atlantic! Lauth is in the lead on piano, but many of the tracks on this set also feature great work on vibes by Fritz Hartschuh – a wonderful player who has this hard, chromatic style that's a key bridge between late Lionel Hampton and young Bobby Hutcherson – fierce in tone, but also very sensitive to color shadings as well. The mix of vibes and piano is wonderful – different than the modes of Milt Jackson and John Lewis, even though clearly inspired by them – and the groups also feature appearances from players who include Joki Freund and Rudi Steuranagel on tenor, Albert Mangelsdorff and Egon Denu on trombone and the core rhythm duo of Wolfgang Wagner on bass and Joe Hackbarth on drums. Titles include "Festival 57", "Warum Bist Du Fortegagangen", "Claude", "Dentology", "Waltz For People Who Hate Waltzes", "Sunday Picnic", and "Tele Funky". CD
