Artists discuss the 13 records that shaped their lives

12. Carl Oesterhelt & Johannes EndersDivertimento für Tenorsaxophon und Kleines Ensemble

This also ended up on Late Night Tales. They are the guys from The Notwist, the Weilheim scene – I love the Weilheim scene; it was good for German music export, it’s one of the few German music exports I’m really proud of. And they didn’t even sell 500 vinyl, I don’t think – but that record is a German jazz classic! Just the drum arrangements, and the saxophone sound, the production: just everything. It should be a classic; everyone should rave about it! But it’s overlooked – problems with the label maybe, Alien Transistor is a really small label.

It’s an undiscovered classic, really. Everyone: please listen to it.
