FRIEDHELM SCHÖNFELD "FRIEDHELM SCHÖNFELD" AMIGA 1978 (FLAC)




Here we have a lesser known musician from the GDR. Although his first half LP "Trio-Dimensionen" (1973) one can find more than once in blogland. The group from this recording - founded already in 1966 - consisted of Günter "Baby" Sommer and Klaus Koch and F.Schönfeld.
He was with Joachim Kühn, Manfred Schulze and the musicians from Synopsis/Zentralquartet a pioneer in the development of east german Free Jazz.
His commitement allowed musicians from the "west" to perform outside Berlin (1970s) - which before wasn't approved by the authorities.
He worked for theater , maintained workshops and several other projects.
1983 he emigrated to Canada and 1985 to the western part of Berlin.
He is now a professor for saxophon and Big Band and is still playing. His recent recording is on the label Jazzwerkstatt ("Start" JW008 --> http://www.records-cd.com/product_info.php/info/p4611213_Start.html).

Aladar Pege later became famous as a virtuoso bassist - which articulates clearly on this recording.

This is a more "conventional" recording than my previous posts but by all means worth to listen to. No artwork - as I haven't found the cover in the net. > Thanks to Owombat for the high quality cover scan.

Taking time to search on I S gives often the opportunity to discover unknown musicians. This lp is very interesting and in my opinion sounds better than his more recent works on jazzwerkstatt. This one is not so free but original.
