Joe Pass & Boško Petrović - What's New ?

Boško Petrović (b. in Bjelovar, Feb. 18, 1935) began to play violin at the age of seven passing on to the accordion, drums and finally the vibraphone. As a violinist he founded his first combo group in 1950. 1959. Boško Petrovic founded the 'Zagreb Jazz Quartet' whose repertoire was based primarily on original music inspired by the musical tradition of his country. The Quartet soon gained recognition aboard for the original style of what came be called Balkan jazz. (J.E. Berendt in Twen Magazine, 1962). During its Eight active year, the Quartet gave numerous concerts home and aboard (Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, Czechoslovakia, Germany, France, the Soviet Union). After a one year break, the Quartet become the Zagreb Jazz Quintet joined by the distinguished American trumpet player Art Farmer in the season 1968/69. In 1970. Boško reorganized the group again. This time he relied on talented young musicians and formed the B.P. Convention, which toured Austria, Hungary, Italy, Switzerland, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Germany, France, Sweden, Norway, India, Japan, the Soviet Union and the United States. In association with several brilliant jazz musicians from Eastern Europe (Michael Urbaniak, Zbigniew, Dan Mindrila), Boško also organized the Novocovertibile All Stars group with which he plays and records from time to time. Duo with the Zagreb pianist Neven Franges originates from the middle of 1985. Program which has Boško written or arranged for the Duo comprises besides a series of Bosko's original compositions also the so called classical works by Charlie Parker, Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, John Lewis, George Gershwin... Boško frequently appears on radio and TV as author and MC of jazz programmes. He is a recipient of the Slavenski Award the Town of Zagreb Award and Croatian Grammy award Porin. Today Bosko lives & works in Zagreb, operating his own jazz club (the B.P. Club) in the very center of town and successfully running his own 'Jazzete record company'. Of course, he is still swinging his good old vibes this time as a leader of B.P. Club All Stars. Boško Petrović has played and recorded with series of international jazz stars.

This one must be rare - I haven't been able to find any information on the net about it. Joe, Bosko, NHOP, Strings and traps all weave together a beautiful set. It's a shame such a gem is a rare one. Bless you for bringing it out into the light.
