A bold, brilliant record from one of the funkiest ensembles of the 70s – and proof that Peter Herbolzheimer could groove as great in a live setting as he could in the studios of MPS! The session's done in a style that's right in keeping with the combo's famous studio sets of the early 70s – full, tight formation from the whole group – a mixture of acoustic horns and electric rhythms – with loads of heavy organ and electric piano from Dieter Reith, driven forward by some soulful congas from Sabu Martinez! Horn players inlcude Benny Bailey and Ack Van Rooyen on trumpet, Jiggs Whigham and Herbolzheimer on trombones, and Ferdinand Povel on alto, flute, and soprano sax – all wrapped up beautifully over funky arrangements of "Peoytl", "That's Live", "The Catfish", "Corean Chick", "PM", and "Head Egg" – all prime MPS groovers from the 70s.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Verve (Germany), Early 60s. New Copy
Some of the coolest work Kai Winding ever recorded – two very odd albums, back to back on a single CD! Soul Surfin is hardly the trombone jazz outing you might have guessed from Kai's famous work with JJ Johnson – and instead, an electrified set that's got plenty of cool 60s touches! ... CD
