Hardly a set of minor meetings at all – given that tenorist Hans Koller works here in the company of a host of great musicians from the late 50s German scene, in a set of tracks that ranks with the best of his long career as a leader! By the time of these sides, Koller was already one of the ... CD
Wonderful lost work from Toby Fichelscher – a German bongo player with a hell of a great ear for an unusual groove – strongly demonstrated here in a set of previously-unreleased recordings! Toby draws plenty from American percussionists of the 50s – and works here in a modern ... CD
One of the greatest German jazz guitarists – heard here in some of his grooviest work of the 60s – an amazing batch of material recorded for the art house films of director Hansjurgen Pohland! Zoller already had a modern tone by the time of these recordings – a sublime sound on ... CD
Amazing music from the legendary Barney Wilen – previously unreleased African recordings, done around the same time as his classic Moshi album! Although Wilen was best known as a hardbop giant in both his later and early years, the late 60s also marked a period of really rich experimentation ... CD
Bold bass saxophone sounds from the overlooked Helmut Brand – a German player of the postwar years, and one with a sense of tone and texture to rival that of Gerry Mulligan at his west coast best! The work here is all previously unreleased, but shows Brand as one of the key reed innovators ... CD
One of the greatest records we've ever heard from pianist Mario Rusca – a really open, fluid sort of set – and one that features electric bass in the trio, which really gives things a different sort of vibe! Mario plays acoustic piano throughout, but the use of electric bass (played by ... CD
A brilliant portrait of the mid 70s NYC improvisation scene by the Music Ensemble – a collective featuring Billy Bang on violin, William Parker on bass, Roger Baird on drums, percussion and flute, Malik Baraka on trumpet and Daniel Carter tenor, alto, flute and percussion! The pieces ... CD
Beautiful work from pianist Larry Gelb – and a set that's as evocative as its title! Gelb balances his own great compositions with a host of well-chosen older numbers – standards, but tunes that are reworked here to fit in alongside the personal voice he brings to his own music – ... CD
A great early showcase for the writing talents of pianist Larry Gelb – a musician who's got this great ear for a lyrical tune! Larry's got this open, almost gentle touch on the piano here – which really helps balance out the sentiments in his tunes, and keep things from ever sounding ... CD
Pianist Larry Gelb works here with some great reed lines from Dick Oatts – a player who really gets a lot of room to open up and inflect the tunes with all these great colors and emotions – sounds that are especially fresh, given that all the tracks are new originals written by Gelb! ... CD
Great work from one of the funkiest periods in the career of the Jazz Crusaders – that point when they first dropped the "jazz" from their name, and started moving into groovier territory! The set's a bit electric, but never as much so as their later, bigger hits – just ... CD
One of the coolest, grooviest cats who ever cut a record – an an artist with a really unique conception at the time of these recordings! Roy Porter got his start as a drummer during the bebop years, and worked hard on the LA scene of the R&B and soul scenes of the 50s and 60s – but ... CD
