The "JAZZ NOW!" Festival took place in Munich during four days in August 1972 as part of the art program of the Olympic Games. The program was organized by Joachim Ernst Berendt:

- Aug.18, Kongreß-Saal (Deutsches Museum) "Africa NOW!" (Ginger Baker's African Salt, Art Blakey and his Orgies in Rhythm)
- Aug.19, HERKULES-SAAL "Solo NOW!" (Mangelsdorff, Burton, Corea, Ponty, McLaughlin)
- Aug.20, Herkules-Saal "Groups NOW!" (Association P.C., CTI Olympic Jazz w/Ester Phillips, Freddie Hubbard, Stanley Turrentine ..., Jackie Cain & Roy Kral)

goody's comments:
This source appeared to be running quite fast, causing the pitch to be approx. 58 cents sharp. That's now been remedied.

Please share this goody-fied edition from now on. Thank you! And thanks to 'blackforest' for his original torrent, upon which this upgrade is based.

It's always an honor for me to place these things back out in the world in better shape than that in which they've been circulating; certain sets originally played by inspirational musicians who have especially influenced much of my playing. John McLaughlin has definitely been one of those. The records he made around this time were among those most replayed by a very impressionable young goody.

Great to pass this one along now, now playing at the correct speed, properly in tune.

I don't know how I missed this and the Koller on Dime, but I suppose I have been trying to be more selective. It's great to have a second chance via your site, Flurin. Thanks, as always.

You might also want to check this one out:

It was on dime for a short time, but too many tracks turned out to have been commercially released - some on very obscure releases, I think, so I eventually put it up in its entirety here.

I got this some time ago... where from I can't recall, might've been your good (or is that bad?) self! So I won't download it again, unless to check whether my version is an un-corrected out of tune one, but it sounds pretty damn good to my ears. McLaughlin... what a singular dude he is and was
