Jutta Hipp buy CD music Customer Reviews
What a tremendous discovery — rare recordings of pianist Jutta Hipp in her native Germany, made before she went to New York and cut a handful of influential albums for Blue Note Records in the mid-1950s. Culled from sessions in Koblenz, Baden-Baden and Stuttgart, this vinyl release finds Hipp in the company of stellar German musicians Albert Mangelsdorff (trombone), Hans Koller and Joki Freund (both on tenor sax), as well as Hungarian guitarist Attila Zoller. Most of the tunes are familiar standards given fresh life through Hipp’s distinctive touch and the forward-looking approach of her musical playmates. Even at this early stage of her career Hipp displays formidable technical proficiency, a fluid sense of swing and an unerring knack for revealing the emotional heart of each tune. No wonder she was a sensation when she arrived in New York in 1955. Her star burned brightly but unfortunately all too briefly. She withdrew from the music scene in the late ’50s, lending even more historical as well as musical value to these sublime performances.
