HERBERT JOOS & BERND KONRAD "SDR COMMISSIONS, 1978"


Here's a bit for Xmass - but please do not 'open' before tomorrow ;-)
"Farbspiele" is "colour play" in English whereas "Versuch 2, einem Traum die Wahrheit zu verschweigen" means "second try to hide the truth from the dream". ("verschweigen" means "to keep/remain silent")



Laureen Newton, voice
Herbert Joos, flugelhorn
Bernd Konrad, soprano & baritone saxophone, bass clarinet
Wolfgang Czelusta, trombone
Jürgen Wuchner, bass
Thomas Cremer, drums
Herbert Försch, percussion
Stuttgart Philharmonic Orchestra

Farbspiele for Jazz Group + Orchestra
1. Farbspiele 1 (Joos)  7:46
2. Farbspiele 2 (Konrad)  14:18

Laureen Newton, voice
Herbert Joos, flugelhorn
Bernd Konrad, soprano & baritone saxophone, bass clarinet
Erwin Lehn Orchestra

3. Divana (Joos)  10:15
4. Versuch 2, einem Traum die Wahrheit zu verschweigen (Konrad) 10:31

Performed live in 1978

All tracks are compositions ordered by the Süddeutsche Rundfunk to feature Joos and Konrad as composers and to give them the opportunity to perform with larger ensembles.
- on tracks 1 + 2 the Stuttgart Philharmonic Orchestra and on tracks 3 + 4 the Erwin Lehn Orchestra, (which was the SDR's radio jazz orchestra at that time and included a lot of brilliant jazz musicians) - therefore they were also able to perform (besides their usual radio entertainment music business) in more avantgardistic contexts.
