A CD of unreleased live recordings and rare radio sessions. During the period 1953-1964 the Michael Naura Quintett was one of Germany's most successful jazzbands. The music of this eclectic quintet was strongly influenced by George Shearing, Dave Brubeck and Horace Silver's hard bop, but also by the chamber-influenced style of the Modern Jazz Quartet. From 1953 on, vibraphonist Wolfgang Schlüter was the main improviser in Naura's quintet. The remastered music on this album will blow you away and is essential for any serious jazz collector.
