Novi Quartet ‎– Novi In Wonderland (1968)


SABA – SB 15 169, GERMANY, 1968

Original SABA ‎– SB 15 169 from 1968. Vinyl shows only light hairlines optical signs of use and age. But plays with EXCELLENT sound. Vintage vinyl background noises are only partly and between the tunes to discover. The cover has a little general wear inside the gatefold and very light corner wear. The cover picture is a generic one, has nothing to do with the actual offer.

Novi Quartet
Novi In Wonderland

SABA ‎– SB 15 169

The Novi Singers are backed by excellent Jazz musicians, blending together perfectly with the “New Vocal Instruments”. Essential recording from 1968, Villingen, SABA-Tonstudio with engineer Rolf Donner and producer Joachim E. Berendt. Sensational also at the time because it was one of the first recordings of a Polish Jazz ensemble made outside their country, across the Iron Curtain which was dividing the Europe of this time until the end of the Cold War in 1991.

Secret Life

Forward with the last tune on this exquisite album. SECRET LIFE, for sure also my personal and long time favorite and of course also the most powerful song of this recording. In the middle of the 90s it was smartly sampled by United Future Organization. But that was not the only groovy sample the trio from Tokyo had used for their great tune UNITED FUTURE AIRLINES.
