Description
Exclusive vinyl release! Impossible to find modern jazz 10 inch from 1962 with an international reputation for being one of the most wanted collectors' "phantoms". First reissue in its original format, with nine precious recordings from the Atlantis Club at Klosterberg in Basel: Elsie on piano/ accordion/ vocals, with Siro Bianchi on bass/ clarinet and Kenny Schmidt on drums, swinging in between songs of the American Songbook - "Stormy Weather", "No Moon At All", "Canadian Sunset" - and original material "Atlantis Blues" or "Baron Lazar". Replica of this private pressing comes with original designs and artwork by Swiss painter Irène Zurkinden.

After their only regular LP-release "The Sweetest Sound" on Brunner- Schwers German SABA label in 1965, the highly talented Elsie Bianchi Trio from Zurich seemed to fade into eternity. Until the new millenium nothing else was reported except for the rumour of an odd 10 inch LP pressing from some legendary recordings made in 1962 at the Atlantis Club at Klosterberg in Basel, Switzerland.

The featured tracks present their jazz music at an earlier stage - a more bluesy vain, swinging in between songs of the American Songbook made famous by the likes of Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, The Mills Bothers or Bessie Smith, aswell as their own instrumentals "Atlantis Blues" and "Baron Lazar". The latter resurfaced in 1964 on one of the first MPS compilations "Piano x 4", in a polished version without Siro's clarinet as the lead instrument.

All recordings were never released for the public and the untraceable 10inch record soon had an international reputation for being one of the most wanted collectors "phantoms" instead. It was reported to be a jazz club promotional item with an estimated fifty to one hundred pressings only, being auctioned for ridiculous money in recent years, as one of the rarest European jazz recordings on vinyl. This is the first and carefully mastered reissue of this famous vinyl record in its original format and with original layout and artwork by Swiss painter Irène Zurkinden. Enjoy!
