Radio Jazz Group Stuttgart - February 1974 (1/7)

This is the first of a little series of posts dedicated to reza. He asked for some shows with Wolfgang Dauner, in return for a favour.

some useful info:
wiki (german)
biography (english)

Dauner was born in Stuttgart on December 30, 1935. In 1963 he founded his first jazz trio with Fred Braceful and Eberhard Weber. A few years later he started playing around with synths and jazz-rock, and for fifteen years, starting in 1969, he led the "Radio Jazz Group Stuttgart", which is the subject of my little series.
All of these shows have been shared on dime, and I am offering them here just as I got them (the only difference being I had to rip them from my CDRs, as I don't keep FLAC files - I'd need a dozen 1TB drives to do that... anyway, EAC logs are included).

The Radio Jazz Group Stuttgart has collaborated, among others, with Jean-Luc Ponty, Terje Rypdal and Zbigniew Seifert. Seifert is present on the first show from 1974, along with Albert Mangelsdorff, the Peter Brötzmann Trio and others. The musicians on the six shows to be shared later include: Maarten Altena, Toto Blanke, Rüdiger Carl, Günter Christmann, Palle Danielsson, Gerd Dudek, Raphael Don Garrett, Trilok Gurtu, Tristan Honsinger, Peter Kowald, Didier Lockwood, Paul Lovens, Paul Lytton, Evan Parker, Paul Rutherford, Irene Schweizer, Alexander von Schlippenbach, Stephan Wittwer, and others.

In 1970, the Radio Jazz Group Stuttgart played the Montreux Jazz Festival with a line-up of Dauner, Dudek, Ack Van Rooyen, Joki Freund, Eberhard Weber and Cees See (info). If anyone has a recording of that show, please share it!

Six more shows coming!

Hi Bill, and welcome to my blog!
Those weren't my seeds, alas I can't remember who seeded them (I think at least two persons), but my thanks go out to them!

Hallo Ubu,

i love this recording and am looking ahead for the other six shows.

German radio stations had been real laboratories for improvised music in the 70s. It's a pity you could only record your local station in that pre internet times, and broadcasts from the archives are very rare nowadays.

btw: did someone record the Mangelsdorff night on dradio last night? I would like it very much to see it in the blogosphere somewhere.

All the best

thank you for this magnificent music...

ubu said...

@ sambeck: what was the Mangelsdorff broadcast on dradio (band/date/location)? maybe it is on dime or maybe I have it already...

@ sotise: good to see you here, glad you enjoy!

I hope reza has seen this, his request prompted me to start this series of shares here, in the first place!

Many thanks indeed for this set Ubu! Somehow I had succeeded in not noticing it before. Silly me ... So many good sounds to digest, and so little time ...
