DAS MICHAEL NAURA QUINTETT
TELEFUNKEN UX 4015 (EP) – GERMANY, 1958
The companion EP to Rarity #9 posted in July 2011 … 18 months ago already, ain't time flying quick!
This one is from Onxidlib's bottomless box of rarities.
If you’re visiting this blog you’re probably familiar already with the blokes playing on this EP.
Names like Michael Naura or Heinz von Moisy are household names among Eurojazz / Krautjazz collectors. . If you’ve never heard of them, you're probably on the wrong blog ... or Google ‘em if you're in an inquisitive mood! I’m feeling lazy today, so no extensive biographical notes. One of the reasons – apart from my laziness - is that most of the info you’ll find on the Web will be in German. Great! Isn’t that a wonderful opportunity to learn a foreign language? That’s what blogging is all about. Not only will you discover obscure records you never ever knew existed but you’ll learn one of the great European languages. Very soon you’ll be reading Goethe in the original text and listening to the Niebelungen while actually understanding the lyrics! All that thanks to yours truly, the Boogieman!
