One of the most beautiful albums Friedrich Gulda ever recorded for MPS – a wonderful session that features key solo work from players who include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, JJ Johnson on trombone, and Sahib Shihab on flute and baritone sax! The work has a somewhat serious feel, but isn't nearly as much so as some of Gulda's other work – and the presence of the soloists really keeps things soulful throughout – with a fluid sense of tone and color that's really wonderful. Gulda plays piano with a larger ensemble, but they really drop back nicely to give the soloists plenty of space! Titles include the 3 part title track – "Music For 4 Soloists & Band No 1" – plus "Minuet" and "Prelude & Fugue".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Amiga (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
A heavy serving of jazz from Amiga Records – the East German stalwart who did plenty to keep the music going on their side of the Iron Curtain! Some of the work here is in a trad mode – and shows that after the war, the older style found a great home in Eastern Europe – but as ... CD
Verschrankte Konstruktion
Amiga (Germany), 1986. New Copy
A wild set of duets, with a really unique feel – a rare date that brings the drums and percussion of Gunter Sommer into play with these massive musings on pipe organ from Hans Gunthe Wauer! There's only one other record we can think of like this – an FMP set that had Fred Van Hove ... CD
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

Philips/Universal (Germany), 1964. New Copy
A rare European gem from Johnny Griffin – recorded in quartet formation with backing from the rhythm trio of the Clarke Boland Big Band! Johnny was working with the trio in the bigger group at the time, but he gets plenty of space to state his case here – stretching out on hard-bitten, ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 1975. New Copy
One of the most amazing albums ever cut by reedman Herb Geller – a really unique overseas session from the 70s, and quite different than his initial recordings of the 50s! Herb's working here in a cool mix of electric and acoustic modes, with a vibe that's very much in the best funky MPS ... CD

Dave Mihaly, 2013. New Copy
Unusual sounds from drummer Dave Mihaly – a player who's well-schooled in jazz tradition, but also really opens himself up to more genre-crossing sounds on this set – a mode that partly echoes his participation in the group Mushroom, but which also shows a much more sensitive side too! ... CD
World Without Form
Sound Soul & Spirit (UK), 2012. New Copy
The deepest album to date from saxophonist Nat Birchall – a set that's steeped in all the spiritual elements of his previous records, yet also stretches forth into rich new dimensions as well! Birchall's reeds have this complexity we've never heard before – soaring, searching in these ... CD
