The 'European Jazz Sounds' series, that started around 1960 with legendary albums by the Michael Naura Quintet, Tubby Hayes and Max Greger, sees a welcome revival! This first volume presents the early recordings of the renowned Joki Freund Quintet from the late 1950s. German saxophonist and arranger Joki Freund played with Jutta Hipp in the mid-'50s, before forming his own Joki Freund Quintet. During the late '50s they played various European festivals, together with visiting American musicians s.a. Donald Byrd, Arthur Taylor, and Doug Watkins. The group got famous for their John Coltrane-influenced masterpiece 'Yogi Jazz' in 1963. This music comes perfectly restorated and remastered for the first time in 55 years. Listen to this record like never before! This CD-version includes a 20-page booklet.
