Klaus Weiss – The Git Go

1 Feb

Klaus Weiss - The Git Go DS539p front

This is one of those releases where the cover has absolutely nothing to do with the music contained within.

Klaus Weiss was a jazz drummer of some repute, having played with many noted european jazz stars. This is one of two quad albums he released on BASF in Europe. This has a nice discrete mix, with some solid, enjoyable music including a few drum solos.

Release: DS539p

Source: SQ LP

Process: ‘Phoenix’

    I like this, it’s a nice surpise for me to find jazz that appeals. As joerand says, the quad mix is quite good and this is very rythmical (which may be part of what appeals to me). Just ignore that album cover, my word what were they thinking…

    I was playing this music, and when my wife saw the accompanying album art, she laughed. It’s such an inappropriate and misleading cover, it has to have cost them sales. The music is really good, though. I’d call it post-bop jazz, a lot of rhythmic interest because the band leader is a drummer, but the trumpet soloist Cecil Bridgewater is especially good. The sound of the acoustic bass is a little boxy (miked too close) and the rest of the band is not crisply recorded, but I like the quad mix, and the overall flow of the album is terrific. You might not immediately be blown away by it, but you get swept up in the waves of ideas and really enjoy the ride. Thank you, OD, for this really unique offering!!!

    Always appreciate the vinyl rips. I know they are more work for you. Cheers!
