Manfred SchoofLight Lines ... LP
Japo (Germany), 1978. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A wonderful 70s set from trumpeter Manfred Schoof – laidback and mellow, with lots of warm tones at the bottom! Schoof recorded some sets in the 70s with a more avant approach, but this one has a really cool and soulful feel – and bubbles forth with work on electric piano and organ by Jasper Van't Hof, and some really great round basslines from Gunter Lenz. Titles include "Source", "Light Lines", "Criterium", "Resonance", and "Lonesome Defender". LP, Vinyl record album
(German pressing. Cover has a cutout notch and peeling gloss.)

✨✧ Manfred SchoofMunich Recordings 1966 ... CD
Sireena (Germany), 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
A lost slice of German modern jazz from the 60s – material recorded for the Hans Wewerke sound library – done by a very hip group! The lineup features the groundbreaking Manfred Schoof Quintet – a group that featured Schoof on trumpet, Gerd Dudek on tenor, Alexander Von Schlippenbach on piano, and Jaki Liebezeit on drums – years before his work with Can! The players are all coming from a jazz perspective, but also hint at so many directions German music would take in the next few years – especially Liebezeit, whose percussion really gives the album an edge. The sound is very arch-modern – inflected with lots of angles, unusual timings, and pulsing rhythms – not entirely free, but proud and strong, and coming across with a really bold finish. Titles include "Virtue", "Blues For T", "Second Roof", "Inri", "Ingredience No 2", and "Axiom". CD

Don Cherry/Krzystof PendereckiActions ... LP
Philips (Germany), 1971. Near Mint- ... $39.99
One of the most successful jazz-meets-modern classical albums we've ever heard – thanks largely to the supreme talents of Don Cherry! Cherry leads the large New Eternal Rhythm Orchestra – which includes Peter Brotzmann, Tomasz Stanko, Manfred Schoof, Kenny Wheeler, Gunter Hampel, Willem Breuker, and Albert Manglesdorf – and Krzystof Penderecki conducts the entire proceedings. Cherry plays mostly solo on his own composition "Humus", and other tracks include "Sita Rama Encores" (also by Cherry), and Penderecki's "Actions For Free Jazz Orchestra". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later non-gatefold German pressing on Wergo – still very nice!)

Heiner StadlerBrains On Fire – Vols 1 & 2 ... CD
Labor, 1974. Used 2CD ... $6.99
Amazing sounds from Heiner Stadler – an artist who's not just remembered for his own work on piano, but for his great talent for choosing excellent players to work with! In fact, this album may well be best known for the musicians working with Heiner more than for his own talents – a well-chosen batch of sharp-edged, yet soulful early 70s musicians – including both Joe Farrell and Tyrone Washington on tenor, Reggie Workman and Barre Phillips on bass, Jimmy Owens on trumpet, Dee Dee Bridgewater on vocals, Manfred Schoof on cornet, Wolfgang Dauner on piano, and Lenny White and Joe Chambers on drums! With players like that, it's hard to miss – and Heiner makes music that's got some of the free, open exchange of the new thing generation, mixed with the spiritual undercurrents of the loft jazz period – really letting the key soloists express themselves strongly. CD features 8 tracks from both volumes of the albums – "No Exercise", "Three Problems", "Heidi", "Bea's Flat", "Love In The Middle Of The Air", "UCS", and "All Tones". CD

✨✧ Globe UnityCompositions ... LP
Japo (Germany), 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most sensitive, almost fragile albums we've heard from the legendary Globe Unity Orchestra – a set that makes beautiful use of brass patterns from players that include Enrico Rava, Gunther Christmann, Paul Rutherford, Manfred Schoof, Kenny Wheeler, and Albert Mangelsdorff! The tones and colors of the set are wonderful – out there at times, but often a bit more restrained than you'd expect from these players – almost in the mode of some of Mangelsdorff's best work in a more subtle time from the decade. Other players include Steve Lacy, Evan Parker, Gerd Dudek, Paul Lovens, and leader Alexander Von Schlippenbach – and titles include "The Forge", "Nodagoo", "Trom-bone-it", "Flat Feet", and "Boa".

✨✧ VariousBorn Free – The 12th German Jazz Festival 1970 (9CD set) ... CD
Be! (Germany), 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
