I had to close this section due to complaints of the phono industry !
is the story:
The only purpose of this MP3 section was to give you some examples of good music
that you should listen to and ... buy! I want musicians to get paid for their work - especially Jazz musicians!
of the MP3´s was just as high that you could imagine the sound (16/22 Khz
So I think no one has burned a CD of the music presented here!
It only were appetizers to go to a CD store and buy that music.
I think several have done so because I only presented the best music here and
the many people visiting this site know that my information is reliable.
But: In August 2001 I received an E-Mail from the IFPI
(International Federation of the Phonographic Industry) with the urgent ultimatum to
delete the files on the server - and that within 24 hours!
This non-commercial website only exists as a result
of enthusiasm and much invested time and because I don´t want
to get into troubles I followed that "advice".
I will not promote records/CD´s here anymore.
The phono industry will have to spend own money for marketing
efforts to sell their records - even if it are Jazz records!
Perhaps I have done too much to promote the worlds finest music!
