A nicely grooving mid 60s collective of Swiss All Stars
– led by George Gruntz – in a great set from '64! The set was captured at Studio Bern in September of that year, it's it's captivating stuff. Gruntz leads and plays piano in the set, and it really is tailored to let the individual players shine brightly – no one's work is overshadowed here, but they groove together brilliantly, too. The 11-piece group is incredible – featuring Bruno Spoerri on tenor and baritone (getting plenty of time for impeccable solos), Heinz Bigler on alto, a trumpet trio of Ray Court, Franco Abrosetti and Hans Kennel, Ueli Staub on vibes (also with some great solos here), drummer Rolf Banninger, Raymond Droz on trombone and Heinz Christen on bass. Includes" Perdido", "Dig The Scene-Sax Battle", "There'll Never Be Another You", "Boy Shooting", "Ballad Medley: Moonlight In Vermont/Everthing Happens To Me/I Can't Get Started" and "El Sino-Trumpet Battle".
