DUSKO GOJKOVIC DISCOGRAPHY

It was a winter 1983 when 5 exceptional musicians guttered in Sarajevo on the eve of the Winter Olympic Games. The reason was recording session that was a part of the Olympic Game's cultural happenings. Dusko was overdubbing 5 trumpets and his idea was to call the session "5 Horns & Rhythm". They recorded 13 tracks and that was to long for one record so it had to be split on two LPs. They  came out under the titles "Blues In The Gutter" and "Snap Shot" but I have noticed that Dusko still calls both of them "5 Horns & Rhythm". Both records came out on a local obscure label "Diskoton" and they soon became very sought after by collectors all around the world. This is the first re-release of  that material.

DUSTY GROOVE AMERICA
Rare work by one of our favorite European jazz players -- and right up there with his best recordings ever! The session was recorded in 1983 in Sarajevo as part of some sort of trumped-up Olympic cultural event -- but the sound is very much in the mode of Dusko's great 70s playing for MPS and other European labels. The group's a quintet with American Alvin Queen on drums, which really drives the whole session nicely -- and provides some excellent slightly-funky backings that are similar to those that Alvin was laying down on American sessions from the same time. Other players include Erich Kleinschuster on trombone, Milos Krstic on piano, and Kreso Rameta on bass -- but the strength of the Gojkovic/Queen alliance is what really makes these sessions great. And don't be put off by the obscure origin of the material -- because this is some of the best work by Goykovich that you'll find on the market, period. The only thing that seems to hold it back is a slightly rough recording quality with a bit too much in the treble end, but the playing is more than enough to keep things strong.
