RARITY # 30


BENNY BAILEY ALL STARS / JOE SCHMID COMBO
ARIOLA 65 122 A (EP)  
Germany / Switzerland, c.1960?



 Considering (i) the nearnest of the end of the world (less than one month left!) and (ii) the fact that free file-sharing is becoming more and more difficult (see Rapidshare new regulations / limitation of free use), I guess I better post what I have while it lasts.

So here is another obscure 45 rpm from Onxidlib's box of surprises.  No need to introduce Benny Bailey and his mates but I'd never heard of the Joe Schmid Combo.  

The A-side is the interesting one. Can't go wrong with a straight blues. Everybody has a short solo (but the bass player, that's not fair!) then the coda and that's it. Short but enjoyable!
The B-side is more lightweight, 50's middle jazz with  vibes and a good flute solo.  Couldn't find any info on the musicians on the web.  

Side A:  Benny Bailey All Stars

Benny (Billy!) Bailey, trumpet
Rudi Flierl, baritone saxophone
Albert Mangelsdorff, trombone
Horst Jankowski, piano
Günther Leimstoll, guitar
Götz Wendlandt, bass
Joe Harris, drums

"Tootie's Blues" (Simon)  3:21

Recorded in Berlin on September 29, 1959.

Side B: Joe Schmid Combo (from Zürich, Switzerland)
(unknown vb, bs, fl, b, dr, as)

"Exactly Like You" (Mc. Hugh)  2:26

Recording date and place unknown.

  2. Love these european sides,- these days only few people get the true meaning of the word "COOL"!

    Joe Schmid is (was?) a swiss musician of second rank (in terms of popularity not class); thus he was forced to compromise (like Hazy Osterwald did) in adopting more popular "jazz" styles like Dixieland or even Schlager music. Recorded an EP with Jo Roland, Werner Wollenberger & Tibor Kasics called Mövenpick Song which is about the (yeah!) famous swiss icecream. Later, in the 70s he founded a nonet called The Kindli Band which recorded the 12" "The Kindli Band Goes Dixie" (Kindli 30-340).

    Thanks for the music
