Liner Notes
DUE TO THE LONG COLLABORATION THE LP "JAZZ FOR DANCING" WAS PRODUCED IN 1965 IN A SMALL EDITION OF ONLY 500 COPIES. A MEETING WITH THE GERMAN POP AND FILM COMPOSER HEINO GAZE ("LALELU" OR "CALCUTTA ILIEGT AM GANGES") SERVED AS THE INITIAL SPARK. HE SCHEDULED THE RECORDING SESSION AT AUDIO TONSTUDIO IN BERLIN-LICHTERFELDE AND LICENSED THE PRODUCTION TO THE SWISS RECORD COMPANY "ELITE RECORDS". ALL RECORDINGS HAIL FROM THE LIVE PROGRAM OF THE "OLD EDEN" SESSIONS AND WERE MADE WITHIN TWO DAYS. THERE WERE ONLY 4-5 HOURS OF STUDIO TIME PER DAY. THE ALBUM WAS RELEASED WITHOUT ADVERTISING BUT THERE WAS A SHORT BAND PORTRAIT ON TV, IN THE REGIONAL NEWS PROGRAM “ABENDSCHAU” ("EVENING NEWS"). THE LP WAS SOLD OUT WITHIN A FEW WEEKS AND SOON BECAME A MUCH SOUGHT AFTER COLLECTOR`S ITEM AMONGST JAZZ FANS.
