Albert MangelsdorffDiggin – Live At Dug Tokyo (with bonus track) ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $19.99 24.00
Great live work by Albert Mangelsdorff – recorded during the height of his creative years at MPS, at a time when he was easily one of the most creative trombonists in the world! Mangelsdorff has risen to new heights by the time of this record – pushing the instrument to a level that only a few might hope to match – maybe just Roswell Rudd or Grachan Moncur – although we'd argue that Albert has an even wider range of expression, especially over the course of different records. This set shows his fiercest, most unbridled side – a great live date recorded in Tokyo, with a group that includes Heinz Sauer on tenor, Gunter Lenz on bass, and Ralf Hubner on drums. The interplay between Sauer and Mangelsdorff is excellent, never too free, and with that bit of swing that Mangelsdorff always put into his work, no matter how modern the idiom. Tracks include "Sing & Swing", "Open Space", "Triple Trip", and "Mahusale" – and they all run for a fairly long time. CD

Albert Mangelsdorff/Masahiko Sato/Peter Warren/AllSpontaneous ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
Definite spontaneous sounds from the great Albert Mangelsdorff – a set that has the trombonist working alongside the up-and-coming Japanese pianist Masahiko Sato, who also plays some ring modulator on the album! Sato's almost the driving force here – although that role might also go to drummer Allen Blairman, a player we don't know much at all, but who really pushes the group strongly forward from the bottom – as Sato serves up some of his most angular, inventive lines to date – and bassist Peter Warren shifts from bow to plucking, depending on the sonic needs of the moment. Mangelsdorff is great, as always – and as always, really knows how to step back when needed, then jump into the fray in just the right way. Titles include "Roots To Moods", "Ludwig Van Watches", and "Voices, Noises, Lungs N Tongues, Strings, & Things". CD

✨✧ Albert MangelsdorffMainhattan Modern ... CD
Sonorama (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Never-heard music from legendary trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff – easily one of the hippest talents on his instrument at the time of these recordings – a musician we'd easily rank right up there with American giants like Bob Brookmeyer or JJ Johnson! Albert's got the modern tones and sense of sound that make him an easy match with Brookmeyer – but he can also swing hard with a current of soul that reminds us of Johnson, especially in ensemble passages! Here, he works with some of the best of his scene, including Hans Koller and Joki Freund on tenor, Emil Mangelsdorff on alto, Gunter Lenz and Peter Trunk on bass, Attila Zoller on guitar, and Dusko Goykovich on trumpet – on recently-discovered recordings from the vaults that feature shifting lineups of players, always in rock-solid, creatively-conscious groups that really make the music sparkle. The whole thing's a key look at German modern before the MPS/Saba years – and titles include "Tower Blues", "Spicy", "Joe Und Joe", "Improvisation Zu Einem Klang", "Hersey Bar", and "Vierd Blues". CD

✨✧ Jutta HippJutta Hipp – The German Recordings 1952 to 1955 – Lost Tapes ... CD
Jazz Haus/SWR (Germany), Early 50s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Rare work from female pianist Jutta Hipp – an artist who's probably known to most for her Blue Note sessions of the 50s, but who's heard here on some German recordings from younger years! Most of the material is live, but well-recorded – and even at this point, Hipp's touch on the piano is sublime – very fluid, yet focused and hard-swinging too – at a level that made her one of the best hardbop pianists on the European scene of the postwar years. Other players on these tracks include Hans Koller on tenor on four tracks, Joki Freund on tenor on two more – plus a bit of guitar from Atilla Zoller and some trombone from Albert Mangelsdorff. Titles include "Serpentinen", "You Go To My Head", "Sound Koller", "Daily Double", "Gone With The Wind", "Erroll's Bounce", "Blues After Hours", and "What Is This Thing Called Love". CD

VariousNow's The Time 2 – Deep German Jazz Grooves 1957 to 1969 ... CD
Sonorama (Germany), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... $7.99 18.99
German jazz gems from the 60s – an amazing collection of rare work from the Rhineland scene – non of which we've ever heard before! The package is even sharper than the first volume in the series – and features some of the best German jazzmen of the time, working in styles that draw heavily from hardbop and modal jazz, but which are already beginning to take off strongly in the unique modes that would flourish strongly in the MPS/Saba years to come! Things are soulful, but swinging – modern, but pretty darn groovy too – a wonderful balance that makes these years a perfect time in German jazz – a moment when the scene was really finding its own groove, yet not getting too full of themselves either. Titles include "Many's Waltz" by Manfred Welsandt Trio, "Beat Bop" by Ingfried Hoffmann Big Band, "Nica's Dream" by Albert Mangelsdorff, "St Tropez Waltz" by Modern Jazz Crew Stuttgart, "Minor Conversation" by Hans Koller Septett, "Summertime" by Fritz Harschuh, "That Double Thing" by Harald Eckstein Sextett, and "Din A Bop" by Albert Mangelsdorff Jazztett.

✨✧ European All StarsEuropean All Stars 1961 ... CD
Metronome/Sonorama (Germany), 1961. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An incredible document of the growth of the European jazz scene in the postwar years – a set recorded in Berlin, but featuring a host of the best players from all over the continent! The mix of musicians here is wonderful – similar to some of the great boder-crossing experiments from Saba/MPS a few years later – but still wonderfully fresh in this setting – as modern jazz giants from the other side of the Atlantic come together with amazing clarity of sound – and a host of fresh ideas that really set them apart from their contemporaries in the US! The set features a driving take on "Haitian Fight Song" with Dusko Goykovich on trumpet, Albert Mangelsdorff on trombone, Arne Domnerus on alto, Hans Koller on tenor, and both Martial Solal and Tete Montoliu on piano. Other numbers include a version of "Am I Blue" with vocals by Monica Zetterlund, "Blue Monk" by a Montoliu trio, "Hittin The Blues" with vibes by Fats Said and guitar from Franco Cerri, "Gone With The Wind" with Arne Domernus on alto and Ronnie Ross on baritone, "3 + 3" with Domerus and ross – plus Koller on tenor and Cerri on guitar, and "Avertissez-Moi" by a larger group with Martial Solal on piano, Koller on tenor, Domerus on alto, Goykovich on trumpet, and Sadi on vibes!

✨✧ Hans KollerMinor Meetings 1958 ... CD
Sonorama (Germany), 1958. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 best and boldest saxophonists in postwar Europe – a player with a wonderful sense of tone and timing, and some occasional exotic tones that were influenced by his work on other reed instruments as well. And although Koller later went onto record a series of classic albums for the MPS label, these tracks predate those gems – and feature Hans in some unique live and studio settings. Two tracks feature a small combo with Zoot Sims on tenor and Hans Hammerschmid on piano – and Hammerschmid fitures on all other tracks as both pianist and arranger. Other musicians include Albert Mangelsdorff on trombone, Peter Trunk on bass, Kurt Sauer on trumpet, and Helmut Reinhardt on baritone sax. Titles include "Hard Blues", "Hi Fi", "Lippi's Tune", "Minor Meeting", "Saba", "Blues Around Joe", and "Sperie's Drums". CD
