First Vinyl 12inch extraction of MUDEGG´s forthcoming album on Black Pearl Records, with a varying handprinted art-cover.

Between genres like Classic House, Early Days Techno, 80´s & 90´s Library Sound, Loft Garage Disco, Melodic Synthesizer Music and a lilttle bit of “Dirt”, MUDEGG creates a unique blend of styles that is hard to reduce to one specific naming.

While “Who´s Hot?” reveales more the “darker side” of Mudegg, that shakes the dark dancefloor with heavy bass, “Light Riders” & “Skaphander” recalling more the 80´s & 90´s melodic synth library music with a proto-touch.

The Black Pearl-team is very proud to present the 3rd release in our 7inch Jazz vinyl-collector series from GDR / East Germany, with 4 never before released early 70´s jazz masterpieces of modern soul jazz, played by the East German Broadcast Big Band arround Günter “Guy” Gollasch.


“Luten” Petrowsky was a number-one-choice saxophon session musician, which played with many formations like Eberhard Weise, Saxophon All-Stars, Modern Soul Septett, Gruppe SOK, Klaus Lenz, Praque Europe Brass Selection, Manfred Krug’s Modern Jazz Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble Studio 4 and many more!

After leaving the very famous Manfred Ludwig Sextett-Formation in 1970, GDR star saxophonist Ernst-Ludwig Petrowsky replaces Friedhelm Schönfeld as the first sax-member in the professional East Berlin Radio Orchester. This very special “Luden” sax-sound and his melodies in solistic parts, inspiriered H. Kretschzmer to write an outstanding jazz-composition dedicated to him, simply called “Luten”. An perfect opener for our dedication to this jazz giant and milestone in the East German Jazz and Beat scenery.
Furthermore we chose for this Mini Jazz EP two other masterpices by David Axelrod and H. Barum, re-arranged in a beautiful 70s jazz-vibe by the high talented arranger & composer of the Leipzig Big Band and informer member of the Eberhard Weise Orchestra, Henry Walther.
The 4th track is a wonderful deep and groovy arrangement by the polish star composer and vibraphonist Jerzy Milian, which had a lot of guest playings & recording sessions at the East-Berlin broadcast-studios & “Jazz at the chamber” in those days.

These already very good sounding recordings -because of radio-master-engineer Kurt Agt behind the mixing-desk and mastering works at the Black Pearl´s audio-studios Audiomoto & Faible Tonstudio – made it easy to create an outstanding sound pearl to the jazz connoisseurs´ ear.
