A collection of unreleased radio session recordings from the original tapes! The few recordings made by the New Jazz Group from Hannover in Germany are scarcely documented. The band was founded in -or around- 1954 by Bernd Rabe (alto sax and clarinet), pianist Klaus Wunderlich, drummer Helmut Perschke, bass player Eberhard Pommerencke and Karl Blume (baritone sax and vibraphone).
