RARITY #33


ROLF KÜHN - HOLIDAY IN EUROPE 
EP JAZZ STARSERIE 27
(COLUMBIA, Germany, 1959)


We continue our (re)discovery of rare German EP from the late fifties / early sixties, thanks to Onxidlib. 

The title “Holiday in Europe” refers to the fact that at the time Rolf Kuhn was residing and working in the USA. 

Although the record is under the name of Rolf Kuhn it is actually Rolf Kuhn & Horst Jankowski Trio 

Better known for his successful easy listening albums - including the famous 1965 world-wide  hit “"Eine Schwarzwaldfahrt", released in English as "A Walk in the Black Forest", Jankowski (1936-1998) was a more than competent jazz pianist.

ROLF KÜHN  "HOLIDAY IN EUROPE"

Side A:

  1. But Not For Me (Gershwin)  1:32
  2. Cute (Neal Hefti)  4:14


Side B:

  1. They Can't Take That Away From Me (Gershwin)  1:56
  2. Easy Living (Robins/Rainger)  3:52



Recorded in Köln, Germany on July 7, 1959.
COLUMBIA C 41 164 / SEGW 7918



With many thanks to onxidlib who did an excellent job in cleaning the EP.
