This is a collection of jazz music from the former German Democratic Republic (GDR), compiled by Jazzanova. This mixture is an attractive blend of Latin-influenced swingers, tricky Waltzes, bossa flavoured bop and big band monsters. Recorded in the 60s, these locked away treasures document the pure and individual sound of the little-known East German jazz-scene. All the tunes were originally released by the state-owned Amiga label, the only record company available to East German jazz musicians. The unique and refreshing vibes of these rare recordings from behind the Iron Curtain are always in our DJ boxes, as they merge smoothly into the club sound of the 90s jazz movement.
