The second in a sereies of
three 10" records that RTB label from Belgrade released in 1960/61.
label has used oportunity to invite some foreign musicians during their
visit to Belgrade to do a recording jam-session with a local jazz
musicians and here are the results. On this record we have two Jazz
pioneers from Belgrade and Jack Diavel Quartet. Predrag Ivanovic later
gained a fame with his vocal quartet and Eduard Sadjil still has been
counted as the most soulful and poetical jazz balads sax player in
Yugoslavia. Historicly this recording is important for Yugoslavian jazz
because that was the first time that some foreign musicians were
playing (and recording) some local author's compositions.

The most obscure group in this great 3-volume
Meetings In Studio series -- a session that features work by an
all-Eastern European jazz ensemble from 1961 -- Borislav Rakovic on
piano, Joe Sydow on bass, Hans Hoitz on drums, Milan Stojanivic on
tenor and flute, and Vojislav Djonovic on guitar. Tracks are short and
tight -- nicely grooving in a laidback way that recalls some of the
hipper RCA jazz sessions of the mid 50s.
