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.
