Art Farmer, was born on August 21st, 1928 in Council Bluffs, Iowa. At the age of 17, together with his twin-brother, bassist Addison Farmer, he toured through the US with Jay McShann’s group . After that Art Farmer had engagements with such prominent sax-players as Benny Carter, Teddy Edwards, Wardell Gray, and Gerry Mulligan.

Farmers co-leader collaborations with saxophonists Gigi Gryce, Benny Golson, and Jimmy Heath are well known. Due to the success of their "Killer Joe" recording the Jazztet with Benny Golson, Curtis Fuller and the young McCoy Tyner became the most famous of these groups.

In 1968 Farmer moved to Vienna, Austria, where he continues to life. Since that time he has been constantly working with Fritz Pauer, one of the most experienced pianists in Europe .Art Farmer and Fritz Pauer were regular guests in the legendary Munich jazzclub Domicile. Club owner Ernst Knauff -he’s my hometown buddy - arranged and produced this live recording on May 4, 1970. He treated the tapes like a bottle of good wine and kept them in his cellar till he thought, " now’s the time to open the treasure chest", and offered me the opportunity to release these tapes. This is the pleasing result. Enjoy the Art Farmer quartet ! Enjoy enja !
