A 10 track album () — released March 30th 2009 on Sonorama
# #
Legendary Modern Jazz album from Germany and the true holy grail of European LPs. First session recording by the internationally awarded pianist Walter Strerath and his brilliant sidemen from 1969, originally released with a beautiful silk-screen printed cover on the tiny ?Jazz Groove? label in an edition of a few hundred copies only. Outstanding self penned tunes by the trio and Hans Thomas (trumpet/ fluegelhorn) plus Christian Lindner (saxes). A monument of a jazz album with originals booking in at 3.000$ on ebay. Remastered 2008, 1:1 fold out cover (punched!) with original liner notes. Modern Jazz will never die and it doesn't smell funny anymore: The original vinyl pressing of "Walter Strerath - Trio Quartet Quintet" reached the highest amounts of all sold records in December 2008 on ebay.com, in third place and priced at 3.000$ behind two vintage albums of the Beatles and Pink Floyd. For many years the biggest international jazz collectors have tried to hunt down this first album by a commonly unknown (and nearly forgotten) jazz pianist from the small German village named Odenkirchen. The original album was manufactured in a tiny edition of 200 copies only and is impossible to find nowadays.
