With the label MPS, post-war musical history was written in Germany: noble music productions with many international greats come from the Black Forest and are timelessly legendary. Some treasures from the label's archive are released by HGBSBlue on high-quality vinyl. More than 20 top-class jazz musicians met in July 1965 for a jazz workshop at the Ruhrfestspiele in Recklinghausen, where they recorded a total of 17 pieces.

Nine tracks from the live recording were to be released that same year as the first double LP on the young Villingen-based jazz label SABA (the forerunner of MPS). Everything was prepared for this, but it never happened. Why, is not really clear, because everything was technically ready for the release. With Hans Koller, Rolf Kühn, Leo Wright, Benny Bailey, Tubby Hayes, Ronnie Ross, Stuff Smith and others, many leading players of the jazz scene at that time were involved.

However, the two music tapes were not pressed onto record and slumbered unheard for many years in the MPS archives in Villingen. In 2018, on the 50th anniversary of the MPS label, this was made up for: the double LP, which was to be released as "Junges Forum 65" by SABA, was released by HGBSBlue in a limited edition and is now also available here. The music of the workshop formation is still full of sparkling creativity today, almost 60 years after it was recorded. You can hear first-class jazz on a bebop basis, which was played in Europe at that time by an immensely creative generation of musicians full of commitment.

A listening pleasure for every jazz fan on the one hand, but also a wonderful documentation captured on this double LP.
