Herbert Joos Quartet ‎– Ballad 1 (1979, Germany) by request

Back to the German jazz which has served us well here in these pages, to fulfill a request.  We've had some Herbert Joos (trumpet, flugelhorn) before-- most recently here, but also on the Daybreak album and in the band Part of Art.

This record is from 1978 and he's rounded out by Jürgen Wuchner on bass, Thomas Cremer on drums, & Paul Schwarz on piano. Notice he played in the Frederick Rabold group, and teamed up with Roidinger and Joos in 1975 for that great New Jazz Ensemble record.

Anyways, with this record, you get what you were expecting, no less, and no more presumably.

"All composed by H. Joos except Green Meadow by Schwarz, and Variation, by the bassist."

The lovely composition called Variation:



  2. Thank you Santa, very much appreciated!

    here you go :)

  4. Many thanks Julian for your fast answer. May I ask you a request. if you have Kershak Suite by Herbert Joos could you post it in flac in the future? It have been posted at "inconstant sol" some years ago but ripped in mono unfortunately.

    1. No problem, btw if you repost the lossless of this can you please credit this blog? :)

    2. No I asked you if you have Kershak Suite and if you could post it in lossless. The only version available on the web is in mono.
