Joki Freund QuintetEuropean Jazz Sounds ... CD
Brunswick/Be! (Germany), 1957. New Copy ... $16.99
Some of the earliest work we've ever heard from German tenorist Joki Freund – a player who'd trip out a bit more in later years, but who blows here with a sound that's sharp, modern, and very swinging throughout! The group features trombone from Albert Mangelsdorff, who's also on the straighter side of the spectrum here – plus alto from Emil Mangelsdorff, sounding a lot more modern than on other recordings – really matching the energy of both hornmen, as they all step out in a piano-less group that only features the bass of Harry Schell and drums of Rudi Sehring on rhythm! The music has echoes of better-known 50s modernists – like Lee Konitz or Jimmy Giuffre on our side of the Atlantic, or Hans Koller in Freund's German scene – and the package features live material from a 1957 album, plus additional studio tracks from the rare Joki's Sparkle EP. Titles include "Nico", "Freund Point", "Vie La France", "Swinging Pigeons", "Domicile", "Rudy's Theme", and "From Lighthouse To Frankfurt". CD

Jutta HippJutta Hipp Quintet With Joki Freund (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
L+R Records/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1954. New Copy ... $13.99
Incredible postwar bop recordings by one of the hippest groups in Germany! During the 50s, pianist Jutta Hipp cut a number of straighter sides for Blue Note that were recorded in the US – but this CD features earlier German recordings, some later issued by Blue Note – all done with a killer quintet that features a young Joki Freund on tenor sax and Emil Mangelsdorff on alto! Jutta's core trio features Hans Kresse on bass and Karl Sanner on drums – but the real charm of the records is the horn players – working with amazing interplay that really makes the record shine – working in unison on many of the intros to the songs, cutting back and forth like a double-edged sword, then breaking out into wonderfully compact solos that easily rival the best of the west coast at the time! Titles include "Cleopatra", "Mon Petit", "Yogi", "Variations", "Laura", "Simone", "Two Oranges", and "Cool Dogs". CD

✨✧ Joki FreundYogi Jazz (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
CBS/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Tremendous early work from German saxophonist Joki Freund – a player who would go onto much greater fame in the progressive years at the end of the 60s, but who already sounds plenty darn great on this early combo side from 1963! The style of the work is incredibly hip – with a definite John Coltrane modal groove in place, but also a sense of globally conscious jazz that's very much in the spirit of classic Saba/MPS work, but which predates most of that by a number of years! Freund plays tenor and soprano sax here – in a sextet with Wolfgang Dauner on piano, Emil Mangelsdorff on flute and alto, Eberhard Weber on bass, Karl Theodor Geier on bass, and Peter Baumeister on drums – and the record is overflowing with great tunes that more than live up to the compelling title and cover image! Lots of "Eastern" styled numbers – and titles include "Aisha", "Carribean Ringo", "Yogiana", "HL 20", and "Killer Joe". CD
(Cool tri-fold version – just like the original album cover!)

VariousInternational Holy Hill Jazz Meeting ... LP
Be! (Germany), 1969. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $34.99
A legendary moment in European free jazz – performances all recorded on a single Sunday in 1969 – but which stand as some of the most powerful music of the time! The vibe here is often in the best spirit of early FMP, or maybe the most outside work of MPS – and the recording quality equals the best avant jazz on both labels – with very long performances on each track that represent the pinnacle of all players involved! One side alone is worth the price of admission – a searing track titled "Finally", performed by an octet with Peter Brotzmann at the helm, alongside Evan Parker on tenor and soprano sax, Fred Van Hove on piano, Paul Rutherford on trombone, Peter Kowald on bass, and Pierre Favre on drums. Favre returns on "Let's Talk About The Weather" – played by a trio with Kowad on bass and Irene Schweizer on piano. Other tracks include "Five To Five" and "Gluga Gluga Blues" by the Joki Freund Quintet, "In Memory Of John Coltrane" by Marion Brown, "Vibration" by the group of saxophonist Joe Fiera and trombonist Ed Kroger, and "Circus Live" by a quartet led by Rolf Kuhn on electric clarinet, with Joachim Kuhn on piano and Stu Martin on drums.

✨✧ Jutta HippJutta Hipp Quintet – New Faces New Sounds From Germany (10 inch LP) ... LP
Blue Note, 1954. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
An amazing early bop session from Germany! During the 50s, pianist Jutta Hipp cut a number of straighter sides for Blue Note that were recorded in the US – but this first album has her working with German contemporaries like Joki Freund on tenor sax and Emil Mangelsdorff on alto, carving out a dark little batch of tracks with a sharper edge than you'd expect! Although Hipp's the leader, it's the amazing horn interplay that really makes the record shine – as Mangelsdorff and Freund work in unison on many of the intros to the songs, cutting back and forth like a double-edged sword, then breaking out into wonderfully compact solos. About 3 tracks feature Hipp in a trio, but the remaining 5 feature this quintet – and it's just great! Titles include "Cleopatra", "Mon Petit", "What's New", and "Variations". 2015 Blue Note Authorized Dealer pressing – in celebration of Blue Note's 75th Anniversary – and the indie retailers that support them!

✨✧ Inge BrandenbergEasy Street ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really lovely vocal work from Inge Brandenburg – a German singer in the postwar years, but one who has an amazing ability to match the best of the American vocalists of the time! Inge's got a nicely icy style at times – a bit like Chris Connor or June Christy – but also warms up a bit at others, with an individual sense of swing that's mighty nice – and which gets superb backing here from top-shelf German jazzmen who include Emil Mangelsdorff on alto, Joki Freund on tenor, Albert Mangelsdorff on trombone, and Gunter Lenz on bass – and even a bit of trumpet from Dusko Goykovich too! The presentation of the material is wonderful – very much in the mode of some of the best female jazz sessions on 50s US labels like Emarcy, Mode, or Bethlehem – with a similar sort of space for the instrumentalists to shine too – and the CD features a total of 20 tracks that include "Yardbird Suite", "Easy Living", "Angel Eyes", "That Old Black Magic", "Moonglow", "I've Got To Pass Your House", "When Sunny Gets Blue", and "You Gotta Wail".

✨✧ Albert Mangelsdorff & His Frankfurt All StarsRhein Main Jump ... LP
Jazztone/Be! (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wicked modern jazz from the German scene of the 50s – a set that's billed on the back as "modern jazz to dance to", but which has a much deeper groove overall! True, the sounds are swinging – but the top-shelf talents in the group really make some magic with their solo work, and the way they come together – often aware of the best tones and timings to make each tune bristle with energy from the very first note! The lineup features the mighty Hans Koller on tenor, baritone, and clarinet – plus Joki Freund on tenor, Emil Mangelsdorff on alto, Albert Mangelsdorff on trombone, Pepsi Auer on piano, Peter Trunk on bass, and Rudi Sehring on drums. Titles are all originals, too – and very fresh at that – and tunes include "Old Hat With A New Rim", "Ending Ad Lib", "Adlon 1925", "You're On Hans", "Sound For Jazztone", "Golabki", and "Beard's Beard".

✨✧ Wolfgang LauthNoch Lauther ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Early work from the great Wolfgang Lauth – a key figure in German modern jazz during the 50s, but an artist who never fully got his due on this side of the Atlantic! Lauth is in the lead on piano, but many of the tracks on this set also feature great work on vibes by Fritz Hartschuh – a wonderful player who has this hard, chromatic style that's a key bridge between late Lionel Hampton and young Bobby Hutcherson – fierce in tone, but also very sensitive to color shadings as well. The mix of vibes and piano is wonderful – different than the modes of Milt Jackson and John Lewis, even though clearly inspired by them – and the groups also feature appearances from players who include Joki Freund and Rudi Steuranagel on tenor, Albert Mangelsdorff and Egon Denu on trombone and the core rhythm duo of Wolfgang Wagner on bass and Joe Hackbarth on drums. Titles include "Festival 57", "Warum Bist Du Fortegagangen", "Claude", "Dentology", "Waltz For People Who Hate Waltzes", "Sunday Picnic", and "Tele Funky". CD
