  2. Thank you Vitko, I really don't think Mr Hampel and Jeanne Lee and chums have had the recognition due to them.
    Meanwhile, is this from German TV? There is a film of possibly the same gig on YouTube:

    1. Recently, I seem to have been afflicted with "Hudelei" - making all kinds of typos without even realizing them. Instead of "I" or "me" being classy, I of course meant the artwork as being "it", namely classy and well fitting.

  4. I agree with martin, above: far too little recognition and attention. His "The 8th Of July 1969" is an album I think everyone should hear at least once. After 42 years of listening it still sounds as exciting as ever. Looking forward to hearing this performance. Many thanks Vitko, you've made my day!

    1. If I can help, I'm always there. Maybe sometimes a little slow going because of all my obligations, but ....
      Relax and enjoy.

  5. Nice post Vitko,
    Was this recording released on vinyl or cd? I can't find much about it...
    I agree that "The 8th of July 1969" is an essential work in Hampel's discography but there's more... much more. You should try this one from the early phase of his career: http://thejazzspot.tumblr.com/search/Gunter+Hampel
    Definitely one of my favorites.
    All the best

    1. This not released on vinyl nor CD. This is, how I wrote above, Broadcast / BR Radio-TV from 1972. NDR Workshop No. 83.
      Thanks for the good review Mister W. Album: Gunter Hampel Quintet - Heartplants, can be found on the Inconstant Sol blog (I agree, very good LP).
      Regards.

    1. This was and radio and TV broadcast.
      This set was recently rebroadcast on BR TV and the date was listed as 1973, but I believe this was recorded in autumn (more precisely in October) 1972.

  10. Beautiful music by a beautiful cast of musicians. And of course we can always count on german radio for some great recordings. Their archives are literally a treasure trove. Thank you very much Vitko.

  13. For my copy I broke things up into parts and came up with these timings: part 1a = 20:04, part 1b = 30:42 (segued, but I double checked start of Broadway on "Broadway/Folksong", and this is right break point break point). Part 2c = 2:32, part 2d= 13:53, part 2e = 9:27, part 2d = 16:33 (this should be correct as there were slight pause breaks in performance and were more clearly different compositions)
