Joki FreundYogi Jazz (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
CBS/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
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!)

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. Used ... $14.99
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

Inge BrandenbergEasy Street ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $19.99 27.99
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".

✨✧ Jutta HippJutta Hipp Quintet – New Faces New Sounds From Germany (10 inch LP) ... LP
Blue Note, 1954. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
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!

Albert Mangelsdorff & His Frankfurt All StarsRhein Main Jump ... LP
Jazztone/Be! (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... $18.99
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".

✨✧ VariousBorn Free – The 12th German Jazz Festival 1970 (9CD set) ... CD
Be! (Germany), 1970. New Copy ... $129.99 199.99
A huge document of this incredible year in jazz in Germany – a time when free styles were breaking out all over, alongside some of the groovier styles of the MPS scene as well! This beautiful box documents the 12th German Jazz Festival in three different concerts – amazing music that really shows the transformation that was taking place at the time – and which is still revolutionary all these many years later – making for a listening experience that makes us feel like we're hearing music from the future, and not over 40 years in the past! The range of performers here is amazing – and CD 1 features a long performance The German Festival Big Band – with reeds from Emil Mangelsdorff, Heinz Sauer, Joki Freund, and Gerd Dudek; trombones from Albert Mangelsdorff and Peter Herbolzheimer, trumpets from Frederic Rabold and Manfred Schoof, guitar from Volker Kriegel, bass from Gunter Lenz, and drums from Kurt Bong and Rolf Hubner – plus four long tracks from the Dave Pike Set, with stellar vibes and guitar! CD2 features the Albert Mangelsdorff Quartet, with trombone from the leader, and alto and tenor from Heinz Sauer – plus a group led by Wolfgang Dauner on piano, clavichord, and ring modulator – with Ack Van Rooyen on trumpet, Joki Freund on tenor and soprano sax, Peter Herbolzheimer on trombone, and Gerd Dudek on flute and tenor. CD3 features Karin Krog singing on two long tracks penned by Dave Pike, who plays vibes in a group that also includes Albert Mangelsdorff on trombone – and the rest of the CD features Phil Woods European Rhythm Machine, with Gordon Beck on Fender Rhodes. CD4 features two long tracks by the Klaus Doldinger Quartet with Ingfried Hoffmann on organ; three more tracks from the Frederic Rabold Crew, with the leader on trumpet and alto horn; and one more track from the Jazzworkers Quintet. CD5 features the Frankfurter Trio Fur Improvisation, with Christian Mollers on clarinet, Wolf Burbat on flute, and Klaus Henning Usadel on bass – plus one long track by Just Music with Alfred Harth on tenor and clarinet, Johannes Kramer on guitar, Dieter Hermann on trombone, and Franz Volhard and Thomas Stowsand on cellos – as well as two tracks by the Modern Jazz Quintet Karlsruhe, which features Herbert Joos on flugelhorn and Wilfried Eichorn on reeds. CD6 features a long track by Free Jazz Group Wiesbaden – and another long track from Limbus 4 – a group that features a lot of flutes, percussion, and diverse instrumentation. CD7 features a reading of "F*ck Der Boere" by the Peter Brotzmann Group, which also includes Evan Parker and Willem Breuker on reeds, plus Malcolm Griffiths and Paul Rutherford on trombone – as well as Derek Bailey on guitar and Han Bennink on percussion. The CD also features a long track by the New Jazz Trio of trumpeter Manfred Schoof. CD8 features work by the Alexander Von Schlippenbach Trio, the Pierre Favre Group, and the quartet of Joachim & Rolf Kuhn. CD9 is maybe the most amazing – as it features a long track that merges German players with the Art Ensemble Of Chicago – billed as the European Free Jazz Orchestra Of The Art Ensemble Of Chicago – as well as work by Gunter Hampel with Jeanne Lee. An insanely wonderful package – filled with free, avant, and groovy jazz we've never heard before! CD

✨✧ VariousInternational Holy Hill Jazz Meeting ... CD
Be! (Germany), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99
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.

✨✧ Charly AntoliniDrum Beat ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the more fantastic jazz sides on MPS from the 60s! Drummer Charly Antolini was one of Germany's mainstays – a great drummer with a tight sense of rhythm that really helped bring the country's jazz scene into line with the rest of Europe. This album's one of his best – and it features Antolini working with a smoking octet that grooves away hard on 6 electric cuts. Organist Dieter Reith arranged the whole set, and also contributed 3 tracks to the lineup – but it's his work on the keys that really makes the album shine, as Reith's own firey style is a perfect match for Antolini's fast and frenetic work on the drums. There's a 5-part horn section that features some nice tenor work by a young Joki Freund – and the album includes some great groovers, like "Attention", "Drum-Organ", and "Drum-Pat". Great all the way through, though – and a sure sign that MPS was on the right tracks! CD

Sonorama (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... 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".
