This is a sensation! For the first time, the previously unreleased jazz recordings of the legendary German bandleader Kurt Edelhagen and his orchestra, which were recorded between 1957 and 1974 in the studios of the WDR, are presented here in a 3-CD box with detailed liner notes.

Edelhagen, who was also responsible for more commercial recordings, shows off his talent for arranging and leading jazz big bands and shows that his orchestra are up there with the best large jazz ensembles of that time. The development of the orchestra is generously shown on this 3 CD box from the swinging 1957 ensemble to the experimental band of 1974. The names of the contributing soloists speak for themselves: Maynard Ferguson, Mark Murphy, Philly Joe Jones, Toots Thielemans, Albert Mangelsdorff, Benny Bailey, Jiggs Whigham, to name just a few.

Another must have archival record from Jazzline!
