Limited edition The most valuable of Gürtler’s (founder of Saar Records in 1950) jewels came from the jazz world. Gürtler donated all his passion and expertise to jazz, financing every project without complaints. The jewel in the crown of his productions was the LPJ 5007 album (Basso-Valdambrini Octet), considered by critics the best one ever published in Italy till that moment. The records selection, to which also Gürtler took part, leaned towards the classic themes of the American repertoire, but was also oriented to unpublished recordings interpreted in the “West Coast” style.

Gürtler personally followed all the stages of the recording and was delighted at the progress made day by day. The final result was a masterpiece.

In 2003, in order to satisfy collector’s requests, SAAR Records has released two CDs under the GMG label (CD 43106 and CD 43107) included are all the tracks recorded by Basso and Valdambrini for the Jolly label.
Concurrently with the Record day 2023, SAAR Records for the first time republishes the recordings contained in the CD 43106 also on a vinyl limited version from the transfer of an analog master tape.
