Eckhardt Günther - Be There (12" vinyl album)
TZ2217Regular price $31.30
The composer, guitarist, singer and lyricist Eckhardt Günther is one of the first protagonists of German-language pop jazz. 1979 he recorded the LP "Da Sein" with a clearly jazzy touch. For vinyl lovers, a limited edition of this LP is offered by the Bynja Production label (distribution: Timezone-Records).
Eckhardt Günther presents an exciting, virtuosic and surprising juggling of jazz, blues, rock, ballads and bossa nova. These are pieces with stylistic and compositional finesse, in which the excellent musicians are given plenty of room for improvisation.
The German lyrics are pretty biting, pictorial, self-deprecating, playful; sometimes painfully direct. Or the songs only tell about relationships under different weather conditions or about enjoying. These finely spun lyrical lyrics are included with the LP.
Some titles have been digitized or partially reworked and can be heard on the worldwide available double CD "Eckhardt Günther - 24 songs and one song".
The record cover of the vinyl LP "Da Sein" was designed by the artist and Folkwang lecturer Klaus-Uwe Schlueter.
