Frankfurt All Stars feat. Hans Koller
RHEIN MAIN JUMP
One of the long forgotten masterpieces of European – especially German – Modern Jazz is the legendary “Rhein Main Jump” album! The original was issued in 1958 by the Jazztone label. If you are in any way familiar with jazz just check the line-up and you will have an idea of the music’s quality. As far as we know the music has never been re-issued anywhere – so here we go with a truly fantastic LP!

Barney Wilen was famous for being included in Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers and Miles Davis’ European tours, and this is his excursion into free jazz, dedicated to the mystical signs of the Zodiac! One of the very early masterpieces of 1960s European avantgarde jazz! Wilen was a brilliant tenor player who flirted with many music fashions in his thirty-years career. The music here is avantgarde school, and this excellent pressing finally captures the timbre and the resonance of the instruments.
