1-CD with 12-page booklet, 25 tracks Playing time 74:14 minutes.
In all the Jazz encyclopaedias not a single word can be found about Freddie 'Brocksi' Brocksieper. Just a few insiders know about him. That situation has changed since the release of our first two CDs in this series.
These first two CDs covered the period from October 1941 to May 1948 in chronological order. This, the third CD, picks up the story in May 1948 and follows Freddie Brocksieper's career to May 1952.
Horst P. Bergmeier's notes follow 'Brocksi' through this period. In addition to compelling first-person accounts set in the context of the German jazz scene at the time, there are musicological notes from
Dr. Wolfram Knauer, and a detailed discography from Rainer E. Lotz.
