Wolfgang Dauner Quintet - The Oimels 1969 (Germany 1969 psych jazz fusion w.sitar)

Originally released in 1969 on famous German Label MPS ´The Oimels` presented Dauner & Co. in a very different light, as a psychedelic pop band. Full of surprises, it even concluded a version of the Beatles ´A Day In The Life`, alongside twisted pop, beat music and ethnic music. Over-the-top fuzz guitars, one primal punky stomper and sitar-drenched lounge freakouts are the order of the day. Truly superior stuff. Great guitar work from Siggi Schwab. An outstanding album, you can´t ignore.

a must for all krautrockers and collectors!

Biography
by Ron Wynn AMG
An intriguing composer and ambitious pianist, German musician Wolfgang Dauner has combined jazz, rock, electronic music and elements of opera and theater in creating broad-based, ranging works. While sometimes these compositions seem too far-reaching, Dauner's best work shows the links between idioms and genres and offers provocative musical and cultural concepts. He studied trumpet, piano and composition at the Musikhochschule in Stuttgart, then joined Joki Freund's sextet in the early '60s. Dauner appeared at several German festivals, then made his recording debut heading a trio in 1964. It was one of the first European free jazz recording sessions. Dauner led Radio Jazz Group Stuttgart and wrote compositions for them in 1969. He formed the jazz-rock band Et Cetera in 1970, then co-led with Hans Koller the Free Sound & Super Brass Big Band. He helped organize The United Jazz And Rock Ensemble in 1975, and began featuring theater, opera, and dance segments along with his performances in '70s and '80s concerts. Dauner's composed music for films, radio and televison broadcasts, and a children's opera. He's recorded for Mood, Columbia, MPS, and ECM among others. Dauner has a couple of sessions available on CD.

Wolfgang Dauner
German pianist Wolfgang Dauner (1935) was a reluctant pioneer of free improvisation on Dream Talk (september 1964) by a trio with Eberhard Weber on bass and Free Action (may 1967) by a septet with French violinist JeanLuc Ponty, percussionist Mani Neumeier, Weber and tenorist Gerd Dudek. Fuer (april 1969), by a quartet featuring Eberhard Weber mainly on cello, and The Oimels (july 1969) instead embraced the hippy age with an acid-soul-jazz sound replete with fuzz guitars and sitar.
