RARITY # 18

HELMUT BRANDT COMBO  
"GOOD-BYE, HELMUT BRANDT"
EUROPÄISCHER PHONOCLUB/OPERA 3218 (10", Germany, 1958)

Three rarities in a month!  All German and all three thanks to onxidllib.
Here is another contribution to the discography of forgotten German sax wizard, Helmut Brandt:  this time a rare 25 cm (10") dating from 1958. 

Versatile is the name of the game, Brandt could play in any style.


Side A offers typical fifties jazz, boppish, west coast oriented.

Side B - as the title indicates - is pure swing in the Benny Goodman - Lionel Hampton style.  Enjoyable but already dated in 1958 (IMHO). .

  Musicians:

Helmut Brandt, baritone saxophone, clarinet
Conny Jackel, trumpet
Gerhard Mann, piano, vibes
Klaus Gernhuber, bass
Heinrich Schroeder, drums
