New Jazz Festival Balver Hohle 11-CD Set

6 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone has heard this Bear Family box set of the Balver Hole New Jazz Festival from 1974-1975. Apologies if this has been discussed, but when I did a search nothing came up. Would like to know if this is worth tracking down. Thanks!

Haven't heard it, but there are two of these boxes:

The links display contents, but no samples, regrettably.

This is the Pork Pie performance from 1974:

A YouTube search will bring up more to get an impression.

Yes, I just got it last week (together with the Born Free set https://www.discogs.com/Various-Born-Free-The-12th-German-Jazz-Festival/release/7946043 ). Not sure when I listen to it, but when I do I will remember to post my impressions here. 

Thanks! I'm kind of surprised that no one has mentioned it here. People on this board, including myself, generally are obsessive when it comes to tracking down box sets!

Well, if this was a box set of Blue Note outtakes of Art Blakey snorting cocaine in Rudy Van Gelder's studio bathroom - yes, there would be some lively discussion here. European free jazz - no Sir.

I got both of these, I was  pleasantly surprised by some of the Czech jazz on 74-75.
