Concerts

I would like to add some excerpts of concerts. All are rare and have a certain connection with part of my life. Please keep in mind that neither do I have or somebody else has the publishing rights.

At the end of this post you can find a listing of all performances. First the ones in the Alte Kirche. Later I will add the other concerts in Rottweil etc. And maybe - if my life lasts long enough - some remembrances to some of the events and if notes still exist, the titles played.

James Newton
The first concert I organized in a small church in the Black Forest was a solo performance of James Newton. I was the local dentist in Fluorn-Winzeln and had the idea to invite musicians to do some work on their teeth and in return they would play a concert. 
The first who came was James Newton from L.A., at that time only known to few people in Europe. A very expensive poster for announcement was printed. Small handmade tickets were prepared, just two lights kept the abbey a bit dark, my Revox reel-to-reel with 7 1/2 speed was rolling and now after nearly 40 years everybody who likes James' music, can hear 3 titles. I hope that James still remembers and is not angry to hear part of his wonderful solo performance. Otherwise, dear James, drop a line and I will erase all immediately.
The 3 titles are from James' second appearance in 1981.

Another concert from which I still have a recording is the one in autumn 1981. A week before the concert while drilling holes in teeth I got a phone call from Gabi Kleinschmidt who asked "Do you want to have the World Saxophone Quartet?" Of course, my answer was "Yes!" But what about the money? I remembered my meeting with the promoter of the Moers Festival some years before who showed me the contract with the WSQ, in which not only the money was above all imaginations but even company of the animal crackers was mentioned. But Gabi Kleinschmidt said "Just for the door". Great. But the troubles started when the day of performance came. All five - Ming Murray was also there - arrived with different trains. Interpol was behind them because they didn't pay for the tickets back to US. I was able to solve this problem because the owner of the travel agency was a friend of mine. So the concert could happen. I rented four rooms in a small guest-house. But after the concert they wanted a bus immediately to go right back to Stuttgart to reach a plane. Even this was solved. Somebody from the audience was so kind to drive them. 
The concert was fantastic - the happenings before and afterwards horrible.
Don't worry about that, just enjoy listening to 3 wonderful titles from the second part of the concert in the Old Church.

This was the last concert at the Old Church. I still had the dentist's office in the smalle village, but I could rent it anymore. I moved to another even smaller village about 18 kilometers nearer to the sun - and for "foreigners" it was not available. Even in this case there was something behind the curtain: The "government" didn't want the Green Party-left wing-they are all communists-their hair and beards are too long people.
The concerts in Rottweil were mostly arranged by myself, Uli Johannes Kieckbusch and the "Ton-Art" people. Dates as far as available will follow soon.
