Notes

Music recorded live at Jazzfestival Balver Höhle 1974 & 1975 in Balve, West Germany.

Excerpts were [previously] released on the 4-LP set Jazzfestival Balver Höhle Ausschnitte Vom New Jazz Programm 1974 & 75.

Thanks to Udo Sawinski for help and forwarding stuff from his collection.
Special thanks to Lutz Klüter for rights and tapes.

Box includes a 32-page booklet with press clippings and reviews originally published in local newspapers.
Some artists mentioned in the articles, on posters and flyers are not included in thís set because they didn't perform or the tapes didn't survive.

On track 4-1 Dieter Scherf plays alto saxophone.

The musicians of the Polish Jazz Summit differ from those listed in the booklet. According to the announcer on the recording, Adam Makowicz couldn't make it to the festival, Cees See replaces Janusz Stefanski, and Tomasz Szukalski and John Lee ("from America") were added to the group. No pianist is announced but there clearly is a piano (though not electric). Best guess is that Zbigniew Namyslowski plays the piano himself.

[Line-up for tracks 10-3, 10-5, 10-7, 10-9, 10-10, 11-2 is not complete. Other musicians seemingly unknown.]

The box set has no barcode as per the label. All barcodes attached to this release are added later by distributors.

CD 5 does not contain tracks 5-6 to 5-8
