Camp King Oberursel and its Influence on Jazz in Hessen

The Cold War era and the deployment of American military at various bases during that time played an important role in the growing popularity of jazz in Hessen.

As a tribute to this, there will be a concert at the Oberursel Town Hall on 22 May 2022.

Visit History of Jazz in Hessen for more information.

Berthold Schinke, one of the organizers, has this to add:

“On this day, the focus is not so much on the history of Camp King as on the music from the time of the Mountain Lodge as well as stories and anecdotes that are not found in any history work. The concert begins on May 22, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. in the town hall of Oberursel, admission from 4:00 p.m.”
