RARITY #21


MAX BRÜEL / ATTILA ZOLLER / GARY PEACOCK 
"JAZZ SALON DORTMUND 1957"  
METRONOME MEP 1139 


Another rare EP from the vault of onxidlib.  A Danish saxophonist, an Hungarian guitarist and an American bassist, recorded in Germany and issued on the Swedish Metronome label.  

Max Brüel (July 14, 1927 - March 31, 1995) was a Danish architect and jazz musician, an accomplished pianist and saxophonist.  He is the designer of Denmark's tallest building, the Herlev Hospital in Copenhagen.  Brüel was among the few baritone players actively involved in hard bop and later free playing in Europe. He co-led a band with fellow Dane John Tchicai in early '60s. 
Attila Zoller and George “Gary” Peacock do not need any introduction.   Peacock was in the US Army at the time, stationed in Germany.

TRACKS
A.  Stella By Starlight  (Ned Washington, Victor Young)
B1. Indian Summer  (Al Dubin, Victor Herbert)
B2. Yesterdays  (Jerome Kern, Otto Harbach) 

Recorded: 17th March, 1957 at Universum-Filmtheater, Dortmund, Germany.

Discographer Paul Dpointed out that Stella By Starlight had been re-issued on Danish CD  “Max Brüel – Recordings 1950-57
 (Music Mecca CD4025-2).

The two other tracks have not been re-issued on CD to the best of my knowledge.

  10. Looks a crazy lineup in retrospect, but all good musicians.

    And Max, inquisitive enough to take part in Cadentia Nova Danica with John Tchicai a decade later!

    Thanks a lot ox and BM!
