In August 1979, East German musicians were invited to perform a three-day festival in West Berlin. Billed as "Jazz Now," this landmark meeting was recorded and initially released by Free Music Production. From stunning duos to challenging small/group performances, from large rave-ups to Mingus nods, Snapshot provides much more than that name suggests. It's as complete a portrait of jazz in the GDR as you're ever likely to find, and a moment in time that continues to reverberate - via these sounds - today. Limited edition of 500 copies.
