This box provides a complete overview of this versatile artist, including Jutta Hipp’s complete recordings and featuring a collection of paintings, drawings and cartoons as well as letters and poems. The phases in her life – from post-war Germany to her new home in New York – are illustrated with a cornucopia of private pictures, art school sketches, paintings and interviews. All included in a Hardcover book with 208 full colour pages.
She was a cool jazz icon in post-war Germany and conquered the Frankfurt jazz festivals in the 1950s - until jazz impresario Leonard Feather brought her to the USA and to sessions with Horace Silver, Zoot Sims and Charles Mingus. Jutta Hipp's piano style, however, is timeless -you might hear a permanent ''let's go!'' coming from her left hand.
