Title: Tow Concerts (Lagos 1979 And Bochum 1990)
Artist: Kriegel, Volker
Label: Made in Germany Musi
UPC: 885513131225
Genre: Jazz

The digitalisation of Volker Kriegel's private audio tape archive (1943 - 2003) conserves the musical legacy of one of the great musicians and pioneers of jazz rock in Germany. Familiar as well as unknown facets of Volker Kriegel's music became accessible again in best possible sound, complemented by rare or previously unreleased bonus material. With the present recordings we open another chapter and present two fascinating concert recordings from two very different creative phases in Volker Kriegel's life: one dating from 1979, with the Mild Maniac Orchestra and guests in Lagos, Nigeria, and the other from 1990, with his last band in Bochum. In 1979 Volker Kriegel was well established in the German and European jazz rock scene. Under the aegis of the Goethe-Institute he and his Mild Maniac Orchestra and guests toured for seven weeks through eleven countries of West- and East Africa in early 1979. Exploring Kriegel's personal tape archive unearthed the recordings from the Africa tour, with some 30 hours of concert recordings on a total of 15 tapes! Among these, this evening of two concerts in Lagos showed the most convincing playing and recording quality, both artistically and acoustically. Time leap into 1990: Volker Kriegel plays with a new band in Bochum. Only keyboarder Thomas Bettermann remains from the old Mild Maniac Orchestra line-up. This last career phase of Volker Kriegel as bandleader had so far only been documented by his one studio album, "Palazzo Blue" (1987). The recordings from Bochum are the perfect live counterpart. Volker Kriegel, naturally forms the center of the action, in which however the individual talents of his fellow musicians could fully unfold: saxophonist Christof Lauer with his powerful, expressive playing, keyboarder Thomas Bettermann as soloist and sensitive companion of Kriegel, and Michael Schürmann and Thomas Alkier as perfectly coordinated rhythm team.
