NEW SOUND FROM … GERMANY - VOL. 5
HANS KOLLER AND HIS NEW JAZZ STARS
25 CM VOGUE – LD 144 (FRANCE, 1953)
This is the 50th installment in the Rarity Series already. As the name of the series implies, it is dedicated to rare and often obscure 45 rpm and 25cm, mostly European Jazz although there have been a few exceptions (e.g. the French EPs of Mickey Baker and Tony Milton, rare but more rock/soul than jazz). The series would never have reached #50 without the contributions of Paul D. and onxidlib and a few other occasional collaborators. Viele dank, Merci Beaucoup, Thanks a Lot & Dank U Wel to all of them.
This 50th installment comes from the vault of Paul D. It is ripped from the original French Vogue 10 inch. 33 1/3 RPM. Paul was adamant that it had never been re-issued but in fact there has been a Japanese facsimile in 1998. The re-issue was fairly confidential and has been long OOP so I have no second-thought about posting a rip. It's 60 years old..
The music sounds very West Coast. Should we call it German Cool? And if you think it's an oxymoron, just give it a listen!
