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 in a limited edition.

From stunning duos to challenging small-group performances, from large rave-ups to Mingus nods, Snapshot: Jazz Now Jazz Aus Der DDR provides much more than that name suggests. It's as complete a portrait of jazz in the GDR as one is ever likely to find, and a moment in time that continues to reverberate -- via these sounds -- today.

Features: Berliner Improvisations Quartett, Gumpert/Sommer Duo, Friedhelm Schönfeld Trio, Ulrich Gumpert Workshop Band, Studio IV, Gumpert/Sommer and Manfred Hering, Ernst-Ludwig Petrowsky Quartett, and Hans Rempel Orchester.
