10 inch Vinyl Record
Remastered and reissued as part of the Blue Note 75th Anniversary
By the age of 13, Jutta Hipp had completed her classical piano studies. With the war in full flow she embarked on an art degree; when the country was partitioned she ?ed to the West, realizing the Russian occupying forces would expect her to produce only party political poster art. First Munich, then Frankfurt, finally the whole of West Germany. She got to know all the jazz pioneers of the day: Emil and Albert Mangelsdorff, Joki Freund – and above all Hans Koller, whose admiration of Lester Young had a profound influence on her own performance style.
Now reissued on 10” vinyl, the Jutta Hipp Quintet’s New Faces – New Sounds From Germany was originally recorded in Frankfurt, Germany and released on the Blue Note label in April of 1954. Hipp leads an all-German line-up of Emil Mangelsdorff (alto saxophone), Joki Freund (tenor saxophone), Hans Kresse (bass) and Karl Sanner (drums) on an 8-track set consisting of mostly American standards and her lone original "Mon Petit." Reissued as part of an overall Blue Note 75th anniversary vinyl initiative spearheaded by President, Don Was.
