RARITY # 19

FREUND - MANGELSDORFF - SEXTETT
BRUNSWICK 10.804 EBP, GERMANY, 1957

First of all, thanks to all the visitors. More than 10,000 hits in June, that's quite something for a blog specialising in pretty obscure - often old - jazz records.
And thanks to all the visitors who take the time to leave a comment, it is most appreciated.

Since these forgotten German mid-fifties Jazz EP seem especially popular, I am pleased to post another Brunswick EP, recorded at the 1957 Jazz Festival in Frankfurt am Main.

A superb line up featuring the Mangelsdorff Brothers and Joki Freund, musicians who do not need an introduction.

Pianist Pepsi Auer is well-known through his collaboration with Kurt Edelhagen and various German Radio big bands.  I could not find any information on bassist Marcel Rigot, it seems he was Belgian (to be confirmed).   Drummer Rudi Sehring was very active during the fifties (Hans Koller, Attila Zoller, Lars Gulling, Zoot Sims, Stan Getz ...) but vanished from the scene in the 60s.

  4. Here is the EP cleaned by Paul D. It sounds much better than the flat rip of "Domicile" on the Now's The Time album.

    With thanks to onxidlib (for the rip) and Paul D. for the professional sound restauration work.
