GEORGE RIEDEL QUINTET
METRONOME MEP 107 (EP) – Sweden, 1955
Until recently I don’t think there was much music by Swedish composer / cellist George Riedel floating around the blogsphere. And suddenly it comes from all directions!
First El Reza sent us the rare RIEDAIGLIA LP – which, by the way, has become the most visited and downloaded post on this blog! Merci Reza!
Then about a week ago, a guy named Matthias F provided a copy of Jazz Ballet which was posted on Bacoso's OIR.
And now our good friend onxidlib send us this rare EP dating from 1955, with all the usual suspects you can expect from a Swedish recording of the mid-fifities (Domenrus, Wallin …).
Isn’t music blogging a marvelous media for preserving obscure and forgotten music?
Why then are we considered as vulgar delinquents by Web regulators? We ain't stealing nothing from no one.
