das stuttgarter gitarren trio (the stuttgart guitar trio) with the blank space characters correct in english and completely wrong in german, and their tribute to barney kessel, one of the greatest jazzguitarists this world has ever seen, recorded in 1996, and including two tracks that barney kessel recorded in stuttgart in 1979 with the bigband des sdr, des süddeutschen rundfunks, the southgerman broadcasting service, conducted by the great erwin lehn.
das stuttgarter gitarren trio (dieter fischer, lorenzo petrocca and frank kuruc on guitars, german klaiber on bass, and torsten krill on bass) was deeply rooted in the leftoisocialdemocratic gutlinksbürgerliche hardbopestablishment within the halfofficial halfsubterranean promotion of cultural affairs, better known as the sometimes wonderful but most of the time coumpletely annoying stuttgart sleaze. but okay, as long as they come to terms like this and find ways to dump and distribute public funds into a cliquey but nevertheless higheely interesting music scene i won't dare to mind.
soho, my reigndeers, here is some wellgroomed stuttgart jazz, released on the metavantgardish edition musikat (an interesting and by no means completely rediscovered label that saw some spanish folklore music, the präzisionsmusik of HEUTE, some obscure offsprings of no sports, and radicilous noise in the non-tradition of stockhausen or cage) of the one and lonely buch-julius in 1996. ("volume 1", by the way, refers to the number of discs the stuttgart gitarren trio have released, not to the quantity of tributes to barney kessel)
so this is what you want, in case you did not know, and this is what you'll get: the stuttgart guitar trio with some brubeck, wes montgomery and their tribute to barney kessel, and barney kessel himself with two tracks you can't hear anywhere else. a very comprehensive booklet in german and english is included in the downloadfile. bop it!
