From the Blue Note 80 Vinyl Edition series

Mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes

180-gram LP pressed at Optimal in Germany

German jazz pianist Jutta Hipp remains one of the most intriguing yet little-known figures in Blue Note history. A unique and short-lived presence on the NYC jazz scene in the mid-1950s, Hipp moved to the  U.S. with the aid of critic Leonard Feather and recorded a series of Blue Note releases that culminated with Jutta Hipp With Zoot Sims, a sublime date with the feeling of high-level blowing session featuring tenor saxophonist Zoot Sims, trumpeter Jerry Lloyd, bassist Ahmed Abdul-Malik, and drummer Ed Thigpen.

Highlights of the set include the up-tempo opener "Just Blues" and the gorgeous ballad "Violets For Your Furs," and the album — which features a seminal graphic cover design by Reid Miles — turned out to be her final recording as Hipp left the music scene shortly thereafter.

This Blue Note 80 vinyl edition is all-analog, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, and pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Optimal in Germany.
