With the help of Rolf K?hn, MPS has put together this limited box set to celebrate the 90th birthday and the life of a true jazz icon. The box contains a selection of Rolf K?hn's MPS albums as well as a new and exclusive vinyl with live recordings from the '60s - all newly mastered for vinyl. Furthermore, a 12-page box-sized booklet is included. The box set contains the following albums: - Total Space (1975) - Symphonic Swampfire (1979) - Cucu Ear (1980) - Stereo (2015 - never released on vinyl before) - Spotlights (2016 - never released on vinyl before) - Yellow + Blue (2018 - never released on vinyl before) - Rolf + Joachim K?hn - Live: Berlin '66 / Newport '67 (2019 - exclusive to this box set). The box set is limited to 1,000 copies worldwide. For a German jazz musician to find international recognition as a major player has been and remains a rarity. Clarinetist Rolf K?hn belongs to this elite class. And there are ample grounds for this: he is an exceptional artist on his instrument. No one sounds like him on the clarinet; warm, round and masterful, his tone remains unmistakable no matter what style he may be playing at any given moment. His play resonates with a maturity and wisdom gathered from a long and rich life of musical experiences. K?hn continues to be driven by an unbridled curiosity that compels him to continually stray from familiar paths and tried and true formulas. Yet equanimity and a sense of completeness are as intrinsic to his work as the daring and the adventure of risk-taking. Rolf K?hn has absorbed the entire history of jazz. What began with a youthful fascination for swing eventually led him into the freest areas of improvisation, while maintaining an unerring sense of form and quality.
