Product Description

Product Description

German broadcaster NDR has recorded the stars of international jazz since the early 1950's and taken from this archive is a superb series of re-mastered albums featuring previously unreleased material. The first album in this series features two groups: one led by an American of real stature - trumpeter and bebop innovator Dizzy Gillespie - and the other by saxophonist Hans Koller, then at the helm of the most important modern jazz quintet in the German-speaking world. The LP version is pressed on 180g vinyl and includes a code to download the album.

All of the music was recorded at NDR's studios on March 9th 1953 and the five tracks featuring Gillespie see him fronting his tightly knit working band of the time in a melodic programme made up of three standards and two Latin pieces.

Vienna-born Koller was at that time influenced by Lennie Tristano and those in his orbit. Joining him on four pieces from the "Great American Songbook" were trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff and pianist Jutta Hipp, who would soon relocate to the United States and record for Blue Note.

Dizzy Gillespie Quintet: Dizzy Gillespie (trumpet), Bill Graham (baritone saxophone), Wade Legge (piano), Lou Hackney (bass), Al Jones (drums)

Hans Koller New Jazz Stars: Hans Koller (tenor saxophone), Albert Mangelsdorff (trombone), Jutta Hipp (piano), Shorty Roeder (bass), Karl Sanner (drums)


(5 stars) Diz was in superb form...The pairing of these two quintets offered an interesting and stimulating stylistic contrast, presenting equally valid approaches from the explosive heat of Gillespie to the measured cool of Koller. Both earn the five-star rating. --Jazz Journal, (Mark Gardner), December 2013

A revelation...Gillespie is poised, mellow and far less ornate than he later became. In fact, he sounds closer to his swing-era forebears than to the bebop pioneer of repute. Equally surprising are Hans Koller's New Jazz Stars, Germany's leading band of the day. The freedom of the interplay between Koller, Mangelsdorff and Hipp is a real ear-opener. --The Observer, (Dave Gelly), September 22, 2013

The trumpeter is in fine form on three familiar standards and two of his most famous Latin-jazz pieces, Manteca and Tin Tin Deo...An intriguing start to the series. --The Scotsman, (Kenny Mathieson), September 9, 2013

Two very decent sets,one by Gillespie's band the other Hans Koller from studio sessions 1953. The Gillespie in particular is excellent missing out on any vocal antics or throw away numbers, just pure high quality jazz. Koller is somwhat more muscular than some of his early material can be. Both sets are really in exceptionally good sound for the period. If you are familiar with either player then it'll need no further recommendation.
