This NDR Jazz Workshop was in the collection of Rudi Fuesers. First I didn't realise what it was as the cd-r has almost no information on the cd or booklet.
But I took it home for a try - and found to my astonishment an unknown workshop!
Obviously it was in his collection as Fuesers is playing on it.
Soundwise this workshop is probably the best I've ever heard.

Klaus Mitcherle, trumpet & fluegelhorn
Rudi Fuesers, trombone & bass trombone

Recorded January 27, 1961 at Großer Sendesaal, Funkhaus Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany.

At least two more titles were performed: "Workshop After Hours" (7:49) and "D'Accord" (6:01).
Hans Gertberg announces "D'Accord" after "Black Cats" as a trio of piano, bass and drums...obviously not included in the cd-r I inherited from Rudi Fuesers.

Note: On "Tune For Antibes" only quintet. On "Waltz With Me" solos by Koller, Van Rooyen and Schneebiegl on horn.
On "Black Cats" two tenors played by Koller and Flierl.

The "problem" with 1Fichier seems to be that they have now drastically reduced the download speed for free users. :-(
