For fans of L’Eclair and Klaus Johann Grobe, it would be essential to check out the 80s Swiss group Zenit. Here’s what reissue label Edition Hawara say about them: “Zenit is a jazz ensemble from Krems in Lower Austria, founded in 1976 by Hannes Treiber and Willi Langer. Arguably, Zenit’s third and final LP Straight Ahead is the most special of their records. It initially came out in 1986 on the producers label Spray Records, and is today one of the hardest-to-find Austrian jazz records.” Here’s one of the tracks from LP, which you can now get as the 2018 reissue from Edition Hawara, or a Japanese one from this year.
