Recorded at the 9th Deutsches Jazz-Festival, Volkbildungsheim, Frankfurt am Main, Germany, May 9, 1964. (In the booklet and on the rear sleeve the date is May 9, and not May 6 as on the original LP.)
Track 7 is previously unreleased, and in mono.
This is the legendary Eje Thelin Quintet’s concert recording from Frankfurt am Main in 1964, once released in a small LP edition. Later on cd and with a previously unreleased extra number.
Eje Thelin (1938–90) plays the trombone in a way that makes one understand that he became one of our most internationally acclaimed jazz stars. He was even offered a job by Charles Mingus himself. There are also tenor saxophonist Ulf Andersson, drummer Rune Carlsson, Polish bassist Roman Dylag and Belgian pianist Joel Vandroogenbroek – a band that put the European festival audience at their feet and shared the stage with both Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk.
Classic songs by George Gershwin, Jerome Kern and Cole Porter are mixed with their own compositions and a number signed by Lars Sjösten. Do not miss this brilliant album!
