Friedhelm Schönfeld is one of the most known progressive Jazz musician & composer of the former East-Germany era, who is still active untill today. Since 1960 he was one of the permanent members of the Broadcast Jazz Big Band of Berlin. He founded and played in the Saxophon Sextett in the mid 60´s and not much later in the early 70s with his own Trio, together with Klaus Koch and Günter “Baby” Sommer.
The A-side with “Acht Plus Zehn” features a wonderful modern bop jazz tune with a melancholic main theme. The B-side with “Elbnebel” is a beautiful melodramatic deep cinematic jazz composition.
