Wolfgang Dauner is a German jazz institution. His various experiments fusing jazz, classical, rock and avant-garde elements catapulted him to the front of contemporary European jazz. He ran the gamut of jazz styles and trends in a career that spaned over six decades. Among his long list of recordings, the half-dozen Dauner recorded with MPS are standouts.
Tohether with Hans Koller, Wolfgang Dauner recorded Jazz Studio – H.G.B.S Number One, the album that signaled the beginning of Hans-Georg Brunner-Schwer’s storied SABA-MPS record company, and pointed the way to the label’s next two decades of creative, beautifully recorded music performed by some of the greatest players in jazz.
