Günther Wiesemann - Flabbergasting

 
Style: Contemporary Piano / Experimental Jazz

Format: LP
Label: Vivid Music

Year: 1983

Condition: NM/VG+

 

The pianist Günther Wiesemann recorded only a few Jazz LPs for his own label Vivid Music before he went on to write Neue Musik. His play gives me the same kind of feeling that also Krysztof Komeda's music gives me. Unfortunately I'm not an expert on piano to verify my feelings stylistically. The subtitle is Interspektionen ... if anybody knows what an interspection (not introspection) is please let me know.

Günther Wiesemann on piano, Dietmar Hippler on drums and flute plus Ali Haurand and Benno Gromzig on bass.

Chris Beier - Hinterland

 
Style: Pensive Liberty / Solo Piano

Format: LP
Label: Océan

Year: 1983

Condition: NM/NM

 

I save you from all this mad rare, never seen before bs and go straight to the vibe of this beauty. 5 out 7 tunes are unparalleled laid back and contemplative pieces. Beiers language is straight and honest, sometime playful. They make it easy to fall in everlasting love...  I've also added one of the two hotter jams for you consideration.

Thomas Stabenow - Chiara

 
Style: Contemporary Jazz

Format: LP
Label: Not On Label

Year: 1984

Condition: NM/VG+

 

Thomas Stabenow's solo album from 1984 is a seldom seen rarity. All compositions on this release are written by bassmann Stabenow. From bass solo in Trio für Violone over duo and trios to quartet pieces - this record has it all. My fave is the drum and bass workout Stars but the pensive title track Chiara (8:12) is really wonderful either.

Style: Alphorns beatboxing

Format: LP
Label: Amadeo

Changing news about Trombones for news about thrombosen. Sorry.

Two artists and their trombones experimenting upon the ventilation.

Sometimes they sound like alphorns, sometimes like Ready Rock C

Lars Gullin & Ake Persson - S. T.

 
Style: Swedish Jazz

Format: LP
Label: Philips

Year: 1973

Condition: NM/NM

 

Modern Jazz from two swedish milestones that sounds pretty cool, if you know what I mean. Especially when it explores the world. If I wouldn't know it should have been Nasi Goreng from Indonesia I would have guessed for Harissa. Delicious anyway!

Jean-Pierre Llabador - Brussels

 
Style: Contemporary Breeze

Format: LP
Label: Ausfahrt

Year: 1987

Condition: NM/VG+

 

I first thought of filing it under Cocktails in oversized glasses (referring to the size of his instrument) but that other one fits it better. Breezy compositions without a hint of cheese. Playful but clear. Walking through the summer rain without an umbrella!

Stephan Kurmann Strings - Strings

Year: 1988

Condition: NM/VG+ punchhole

 

Contemporary Jazz with a modal feel, incredible string arrangements (did Dego & Marc Mac hear this before recording 4 pages?) and a SPIRIT. And with Doug Hammnond on drums by the way ... He also releassed this on his Idibib label. Sounding so damn fresh!!

Das Stuttgarter Jazz Trio - Bei Behr

 
Style: Modal Jazz / Oldtime

Format: 7" EP
Label: Private

Year: 1978

Condition: NM/VG+

 

Nicest copy of this uncommon jazz gem. All players are coming from a dixie or ragtime background. Nevertheless they have been playing with great names such as Mal Waldron or the local hero Joe Haider. When i discovered this i didn't expect much since the tunes are adaptions of german folk songs, but right the first track showed me that i was misdirected. Two of the four songs are fantastic modern jazz compositions. This is the original first issue with the foldout cover

Catalpa - Catalpa

Year: 1981

Condition: NM/VG+  

 

Most excellent and pretty soulful free jazz with the exception of  the hard bopping Straight No Chaser. The remaining tunes are self penned compositions / improvisations.

Catalpa were 5 hobby musicians from Munich who recorded their only album in Hamburg. In over 20 years of digging for german jazz this is the second copy I came across ...

Sigrid Meyer - Serene

 
Style: Vocal Jazz / Experimental Contemporaries

Format: LP
Label: Polydor

Year: 1982

Condition: NM/VG+

 

By far one of my favourite vocal jazz records made in Germany. If you dig the work of Monika Linges, Lauren Newton and Silvia Droste you need to hear this. A little more experimental than the average easy scat bossa ladies and mysteriously rare although released on Polydor. Anyway it's about the music and not the pressing quantities so please ...

Alfred Haurand - Solo Bass Vitamine A+D

 
Style: the maestro on the bass / Freedom Bass Suite

Format: LP
Label: Ring

Year: 1976

Condition: VG/VG+

 

One of the european kings on bass. And for sure the experimental bass kaiser. You wouldn't guess how entertaining a bass solo album can be. If his name doesn't ring a bell: Ali Haurand played with Third Eye, The Jan Huydts Trio, Tony Oxley, Wilton Gaynar, etc, etc. My first double copy went into the hands of Thurston Moore...

This copy here has an audible scratch in B1. No skips but quite a few pops (well around 20 rounds) Rest is NM. Priced accordingly

Style:  Experimental Fusion

Label: Avantgarage / Private

Year: 1983

Condition: NM/NM

 

Like new copy! This album is setting free a lot of energy and it's less experimental than you might guess from a look at the cover (and label).  The quartet plays a variety of styles on this LP not without showing skills in the fast tracks ;) My fave are the slow etc. and the interstellar overdrive tune Space Invaders

Various - At Night

 
Style: Swing / Modern Jazz / Spiritual Jazz

Format: 2LP
Label: Jazz Club Podium

Year: 1978

Condition: NM/VG+  

 

A private compilation released by a Frankfurt Jazzclub. Sides 1, 2 & 3 are filled with Swing and I must admit that it's not my cup of tea at all. Side 4 is what I bought this for. The Sextet "Sounds" plays three compositions by Nat Adderley, Cannonball Adderley and Benny Golson. My highlight is the self penned Sound Spirit - a ten minute long and very intense session!

Condition: NM/VG+  

 

Here's one of the harder to find records from the View-Records Jazz Series. Rob van den Broeck on piano, Harry Emmery on bass and Tony Levin on drums. Oldschool Piano Trio you might think. Well it's a piano trio, but it doesn't sound old school at all ; )
