Gunter Hampel "Galaxie Dream Band" - Donaueschingen 1975

Here's a show I dug up from some old archival DVDs, by Gunter Hampel's "Galaxie Dream Band", recorded at the SWF Jazz Session of 1975's Donaueschinger Musiktage.

Quite likely, this is the finest sounding show in circulation... the band consists of several longtime collaborators of Hampel's, Perry Robinson on clarinet, Mark Whitecage and Thomas Keyserling on saxophones and flute, Jack Gregg on bass, Martin Bues on drums, and the great Jeanne Lee on vocals.

This is strong and beautiful music - watch out!

thanx for posting this, ubu - can never hear enough Jeanne Lee, & you're quite right - this is one of his best bands
