HANS KOLLER QUINTET / NEW JAZZ STARS
DAS IS JAZZ
If you’re a regular of this blog - and a few other ones of the same inclination in the blogsphere – you are probably already familiar with Austrian saxplayer Hans Koller. If not, google his name and you’ll learn everything that you need to know.
About a week ago, onxidlib (of Inconstant Sol fame, for those who wouldn’t know yet) asked me in the comments of a post whether I’d be interested in posting some early Hans Koller sides he came across in the most unlikely place: an airport shop!
I always welcome collaboration and good music, so here it is, recorded almost 59 years ago – only a few weeks younger than me - la Crème de la Crème du Jazz Allemand of the Fifties::
Hans Koller, tenor saxophone
Albert Mangelsdorff, trombone
Jutta Hipp, piano
Shorty Roeder, bass
Rudi Sehring, drums
