New Manfred SchoofMunich Recordings 1966 ... CD
Sireena (Germany), 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
A lost slice of German modern jazz from the 60s – material recorded for the Hans Wewerke sound library – done by a very hip group! The lineup features the groundbreaking Manfred Schoof Quintet – a group that featured Schoof on trumpet, Gerd Dudek on tenor, Alexander Von Schlippenbach on piano, and Jaki Liebezeit on drums – years before his work with Can! The players are all coming from a jazz perspective, but also hint at so many directions German music would take in the next few years – especially Liebezeit, whose percussion really gives the album an edge. The sound is very arch-modern – inflected with lots of angles, unusual timings, and pulsing rhythms – not entirely free, but proud and strong, and coming across with a really bold finish. Titles include "Virtue", "Blues For T", "Second Roof", "Inri", "Ingredience No 2", and "Axiom". CD

New Heiner StadlerBrains On Fire – Vols 1 & 2 ... CD
Labor, 1974. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Amazing sounds from Heiner Stadler – an artist who's not just remembered for his own work on piano, but for his great talent for choosing excellent players to work with! In fact, this album may well be best known for the musicians working with Heiner more than for his own talents – a well-chosen batch of sharp-edged, yet soulful early 70s musicians – including both Joe Farrell and Tyrone Washington on tenor, Reggie Workman and Barre Phillips on bass, Jimmy Owens on trumpet, Dee Dee Bridgewater on vocals, Manfred Schoof on cornet, Wolfgang Dauner on piano, and Lenny White and Joe Chambers on drums! With players like that, it's hard to miss – and Heiner makes music that's got some of the free, open exchange of the new thing generation, mixed with the spiritual undercurrents of the loft jazz period – really letting the key soloists express themselves strongly. CD features 8 tracks from both volumes of the albums – "No Exercise", "Three Problems", "Heidi", "Bea's Flat", "Love In The Middle Of The Air", "UCS", and "All Tones". CD

New Mal WaldronHard Talk ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Hard talk, and lots of heavy sounds from the great Mal Waldron – heard here in a set that may well be one of his greatest moments of the 70s! The album's a key illustration of Waldron's power on the European scene of the time – and it's noteworthy not just for Mal's bold vision as a leader, but also for key contributions from Steve Lacy on soprano sax and Manfred Schoof on trumpet! Both artists really bring a lot to Waldron's music – filling up the long tracks with voices that are as powerful and righteous as the leader's own – spurred on by some great rhythm work from Isla Eckinger on bass and Allen Blairman on drums. Recorded live, with a great sense of energy – and titles include "Snake Out", "Hard Talk", "Russian Melody", and "Hurray For Herbie". CD

New Don Cherry/Krzystof PendereckiActions ... LP
Klimt, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the most successful jazz-meets-modern classical albums we've ever heard – thanks largely to the supreme talents of Don Cherry! Cherry leads the large New Eternal Rhythm Orchestra – which includes Peter Brotzmann, Tomasz Stanko, Manfred Schoof, Kenny Wheeler, Gunter Hampel, Willem Breuker, and Albert Manglesdorf – and Krzystof Penderecki conducts the entire proceedings. Cherry plays mostly solo on his own composition "Humus", and other tracks include "Sita Rama Encores" (also by Cherry), and Penderecki's "Actions For Free Jazz Orchestra". LP, Vinyl record album
