Altaxon Library


These four albums, released on the small German library label Altaxon must have been recorded between the mid to end 70ies, no year is indicated, so we can't say for sure.
All four volumes are quite similar in style and sound: The a-sides (Kenny Bird Orchestra) usually feature some funky stuff, the b-sides (Lado's Latin Combination) vary styles between disco, orchestral, easy listening, latin, jazz and some funky moments as well. The man who is the mastermind behind these recordings and most probably the founder of the label as well is the German jazz legend Fritz Maldener.

  4. Ya know, once you fix the typo in the link (.rer), and you correct the errors in the Altaxon catalogue numbers (on this page), you find that you're the proud owner of four kickass slabs of wax, and let me just thank the blog owner once again!

  9. The style of these albums are similar but the sound and the composition of its songs are totally different, I think that's the difference you have to hear them.m10m
