VA – Jazz a la carte

VA - Jazz a la carte - CoverPanton, Czecheslovakia, 1980

Another “a la carte” record, this time it’s jazz (and its in stereo too, but has nothing to do with the “Stereo a la carte” record).
This is a compilation giving an overview about parts of the czecheslovakian jazz-scene at that time. This is really a great record, filled with very energetic and smooth Jazz, one of the records I pop on my turntable quite often. For someone totally new to chzecheslovakian jazz this might be a good record to begin with, but it seems to be rare. Bands featured include Hot Breath, Combo FH, Jazz Q and Jazz Sanatorium.

The Song I chose for today is B1 SHQ-”morning of a faun”, one of the best songs on this record. Altough the record itself was done in 1980 this song is from 1977.

It’s actually quite hard to find exactly this “Jazz a la carte” on gemm.com, maybe just take a look for records from SHQ, there are some for sale there.

    This compilation is actually hard to find ANYWHERE, even in Prague… It took me quite a long time to locate one.

    It was a kind of “Best of Mini Jazz Klub” sampler. Mini Jazz Klub was a Panton series of 7 inch EPs between 1976 and 1986. Panton released as much as 45 records within the series, from ragtime over dixieland, swing, bebop, jazz funk, jazz rock up to avantgarde and alternative genres in the 1980s.

    This album covers recordings made between 1975 and 1978 only. Not necessarilly the BEST tracks from the series (where’s Karel Ruzicka, Gustav Brom, Prague Big Band or Jazz Cellula?!), but it’s definitely not bad either.
