HELMUT BRANDT COMBO
"JAZZ FROM BERLIN"
EP METRONOME MEP 1039, Germany, 1955
I have the feeling this blog is becoming the leading resource on Helmut Brandt recordings.
It started about 18 months ago with Rarity #7, an EP from Paul D. I was at the time pretty ignorant of the musical achievements of Mr Brandt. Then onxidlib came onboard with a whole load of obscure EP and even bootlegs featuring Brandt. This one is a new addition to the series courtesy of onxidlib again. It was an education to me to discover a musician of such caliber. Thanks to all the blog collaborators!

Last week end I was zapping among the numerous satellite channels on the telly and landed on BR-Alpha, a German public channel, in the middle of an old black & white show entitled Deutsche All Stars 1963 starring ... well everybody in 60s German Jazz: the Mangelsdorf brothers, Hans Koller, Helmut Brand, Yoki Freund, Klaus Doldinger with Ingfried Hoffman, Michael Naura, Rolf Kuhn with Horst Jankowski etc ... I could n't believe my eyes. I could actually SEE all those blokes I had posted on my blog. Unfortunately I only saw half of the programme. Does anyone knows whether it is available on DVD or could be downloaded from somewhere? Couldn't find anything on Google.
