A forgotten masterpiece of European Jazz.
'Room 1220' is a tender yet burning duo of Mangelsdorff and Surman. And the mood of 'My Kind Of Beauty' still needs a public location (club or however you want to call it) to be build for ... in general I'm not a big fan of the Hammond organ, but what Eddy Louis is able to deliver ... and please listen to John Surman and Albert Mangelsdorff - they use the clichés - yet they reach a level far above such truisms.
John Surman, baritone saxophone
Albert Mangelsdorff, trombone
Eddy Louis, piano, hammond organ
Nils-Henning Ørsted Pedersen, bass
Daniel Humair, drums
