Product Details


Percussive hard bop, Afro-Cuban and modern jazz recordings by Berlin bongo player, singer and beatnik Toby Fichelscher, recorded in 1960 with the quintet of vibraphonist Manfred Burzlaff featuring the young drummer Joe Nay.

Discovery of unknown tapes by the enigmatic German jazz singer, percussionist and two-time poll winner of the 1950s, compiled from archives in Berlin. Provides long-lost music from the films "Tobby", "Shadows" and "Max Knaak," plus the legendary Amiga recording "On Chano's Track" in the powerful style of Chano Pozo. Unique document from the existentialist jazz scene in Berlin before the wall was built, remastered for 6-Page-Digipack CD and limited vinyl LP, comes with new editorial work and original photos.

"Busting The Bongos" presents previously unknown tapes with film music and photos from the year 1960, provided from the Berlin archives of Manfred Burzlaff, Hans Juergen Pohland and Jan George - the lost sounds of "jazz phantom" Tobias "Toby" Fichelscher (1927-1992). Toby belonged to the leading German jazz musicians of the 1950s. As a regular guest he sang and played at the German Jazz Festival and was a two-time poll winner. Through his performances in many Berlin clubs, in legendary venues such as the "Riverboat" high above the Fehrbelliner Platz or the "Eierschale" at the Breitenbachplatz, he helped to make jazz popular again after the war.
