MORE SWISS JAZZ


THE SWISS JAZZ QUINTET
TELL’S SHOT
Gold Records ‎– LP 11 117,  Switzerland - 1980

Two weeks holiday in Brussels involving more cratedigging, a presentation at the Sweet & Hot Jazz Club on Friday and recovering from  a 60th Birthday party (mine!) this Saturday.  Great party with a superb live band (alto sax, guitar, acoustic bass, drums), lotsa friends and plenty Belgian Beer (I drank Brown Grimbergen, smooth and no headache the day after!).

Today I took it easy and managed to find a bit of time to post El Reza’s second contribution to the Boogieman’s Blog.  A fairly rare album, at least outside Switzerland: The Swiss Jazz Quintet ‎– Tell's Shot

I haven’t found much info on this album on the Web.  Excellent music though, this album should please fans of late 70s Eurojazz with modal and soul jazz touches !

  3. Haven't tried the Grimbergen double, but had a superb blonde the other day (on tap). The music could be delicious, too!
