JAN JANKEJE – Zum Trotz feat. B. LAGRENE
LP Jazzpoint Records – 1016 Germany, 1983
This is not gypsy jazz despite the presence of Birelli Lagrene and a violinist. It is high-energy contemporary jazz with hard bop and latin jazz influences. The themes are all original. Highly recommended!
Piano – Klaus Wagenleiter
Violin, Viola – Matthias Buck
Guitar – Bireli Lagrene (guest)
Bass – Jan Jankeje

FAREWELL EVERY ONE ....
This will be my last post for quite a while I’m afraid. I have taken a new long term overseas job which will leave me with little free time for the blog. Moreover all my LPs will remain in Belgium, I won’t be able to rip anything any longer.
I wish to thank the "old" bloggers who've inspired me (Bacoso, Simon, El Rezah, Ish, Katonah, Arkadin, Inconstant Sol , E-mile, Rodney at BritJazz and many more...), all the contributors, friends and fellow bloggers who have contributed to the success of this blog (onxidlib and Paul D. especially), all the visitors, the regulars who always left a comment … but also the (more numerous) anonymous visitors (about 15 000 every months, sometime even more).
I will continue to visit the blogworld and see how it develops. If circumstances permit I may revive the blog at a later date, I still have a good number of obscure albums never seen in the blogs to this date. In a few years, I’ll have much more free time and, hopefully, improved equipment and skills.
In the meantime, farewell every one, thanks for your support.
