Thank you very much, Brian! Its a great band and I've never seen this one before.

brian said...

my opinion? i think... well i'm pretty (brian) sure that the european jazz musicians saved the jazz in late 70s and 80s.

Great post. This is one of the few Aniga (Jazz) LPs I hadn't had the chance to hear until now.
And quite an interesting line-up!

Do you really say the European Jazz musicians saved Jazz during the late 70s and 80s.
I would emphasize more the European scene than the musicians as such.

agmosk said...

Gruntz Third Stream? Swings way too much for that.

jazzuk said...

Thanks very much

brian said...

Yes! onxidlib.. you could say like this... many americans came to europe in this period... but without support they coluldn't do much!

onxidlib said...

I agree! brian
...without support there wouldn't be any advancement/continuation.
