RARITY #34


RUDI FLIERL 
"SPIELT EARL BOSTIC FAVORITEN"
BERTELSMANN 7589 (EP) – Germany, 1957


Looks like December is gonna be the Rarities Month.  From Onxilib seemingly bottomless treasure chest comes another rare German EP that will appeal to fans of good old instrumental Rhythm & Blues.  German tenor sax Rudi Flierl plays some classic Bostic tunes.  Very competent and soulful playing, it’s interesting to hear them played on tenor instead of Bostic’s alto.  Otto Weiss provides some soulful piano accompaniment and soli. 

I know little about Rudi Flierl (who turned 80 in July this year).  He’s been a mainstay of several German big bands and dance orchestras from the early fifties to the late seventies. 


1952 to 57: Orchester Hugo Strasser
1957 to 62 SWF-Tanzorchester led by American band leader / arranger Eddy Sauter
1963 to 65 Tanzorchester Max Greger
1965 to 80 back with the SWF-Tanzorchester, led by Rolf-Hans Müller 
1980-1999 Flierl directs the Musikverein Zell-Weierbach

  2. Thanks, onxidlib and boogieman. Fun stuff - I can remember Bostick when his Flamingo was in the hit parade but only just. I suppose it's on the web somewhere.

  5. Never heard of Rudi but if he's inspired by Earl Bostic that's alright by me!
