In the 1950s Hans Koller had worked in the SWF Baden-Baden Radio Orchestra.

Then he became the musical director of Hamburg’s NDR Jazz Workshop.

Despite in those days Europe had been in the Cold War,NDR invited many jazz musicians from United States and Communist countries and others each year.

NDR left many grandiose sound tracks.

More than 2000 concerts and studio recordings from the last 60 years are resting well protected in our Jazz archive.

Some of these have been released since 1987.
