MPS Records was a German jazz record label founded in 1968. MPS stands for "Musik Produktion Schwarzwald". Originally based in Villingen, MPS was founded as the successor to the SABA Label Records by Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer, together with Joachim Ernst Berendt, Willy Fruth and Achim Hebgen (who also worked as producers). MPS was the first German label to exclusively release jazz. MPS produced and released recordings by American, European and Japanese jazz artists. The hallmarks of MPS releases were the high quality of the recordings (some of the production was undertaken in the private atmosphere of label founder Brunner-Schwer's living room), the attractive design of the sleeves, and the detail of information about artists, instruments and performances.Blog with all info + coverart : http://dickdalaise.blogspot.be/2012/06/mojazz-36-mps-special-vol2.html
