German Jazz: German Hard Bop And Beyond Pt. 1

Playing tracks by

Modern Jazz Archive, Manfred Ludwig Sextett, Harald Eckstein Sextet, Michael Naura Quintet, Modern Jazz Group Freiburg and more.

Chart positions

This show was 98th in the global jazz chart.

German jazz. An exciting topic for me as a record collector. There is still so much to discover. German jazz was certainly multi-faceted. In this mix, among other things, you will hear hard bop / post bop tracks that are perhaps not well known to everyone and you’re gonna stumble upon combos like the „Harald Eckstein Sextet“ from Bremen or the „Modern Jazz Crew Stuttgart“ - since I have only focused on German artists. But well-known names like Michael Naura or Albert Mangelsdorff are certainly represented as well. There will be more mixes in the future, including "Cool Jazz from Germany" or "international artists who have recorded in Germany" and of course - as the title suggests - a second part of "German Jazz - Hard Bop And Beyond".

For the art work I used a photo of the Manfred Ludwig Sextet (represented here with 2 great tracks). The band was a relevant jazz ensemble in the GDR in the 1960s, later a pure dance band.

Enjoy, this vinyl-only mix (albums & 45s) selected by Matt Fox
