LISTEN TO RECORDINGS / PIANO

live at the BEBOP Vol. 1, Larry Porter Trio

live at the BEBOP
This is the opening set of one of the weekly jam sessions at the now defunkt Bebop Bar, a gathering place on Sunday evenings for musicians and jazz lovers in Kreuzberg. The intimate atmosphere and warm acoustics seem to come through on these recordings.

Gary Hoopengardner had come to Berlin a few years earlier from Cleveland, Ohio. He was playing around town with a lot of good musicians. Matthias Klein was just finishing his studies at the conservatory and playing every chance he could get. This setting afforded the musicians the opportunity to get up close and personal with the audience, and the auspicious microphone placement on that night captures a bit of the flavor of that era.
