Jazz may be marginalized but, despite that unfortunate reality, it's still nearly impossible to keep up with the multitude of artists deserving attention-even when one of them is German saxophonist Heinz Sauer, a fixture on the German scene for over half a century. ECM fans may know his work on George Adams' Sound Suggestions (1979) and the Jazzensemble des Hessischen Rundfunks collection, Atmospheric Conditions Permitting (1995), on which many of the same players showing up on Sauer's 75th birthday collection, The Journey, also appear. Few German jazz musicians have achieved trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff and bassist Eberhard Weber's level of international recognition but, based on this forty-three year-spanning compilation, it's high time they did.

The warm-toned Sauer defies easy categorization. He brings visceral energy to that most cherished of chestnuts, Thelonious Monk's "Round About Midnight" (heard here in a 1978 duet with longtime pianist Bob Degen), and even greater extremes to the modal workout, "Now Jazz Ramwong," as a member of the late Mangelsdorff's 1964 quintet. The free-bop of Sauer's "Nachtwort," a 1970 Mangelsdorff quartet track, may only last two minutes, but Sauer's in tandem solo with the trombonist provides more meat than on tunes far greater in length

Sauer is, however, capable of deeper lyricism and, for an artist in his seventies at the time of his duet recording of Prince's enduring "Nothing Compares 2 U" with pianist Michael Wollny; it's a refreshing rarity to hear his interest in more contemporary pop material. This track from the sublime Certain Beauty (ACT, 2006)-which includes an unbound cross-section of material from Billy Strayhorn to Esbjo"rn Svensson Trio (est), Gershwin and Bjo"rk-simply attests to the fact that, for the broad-minded musician, good music is good music, no matter what the source. And while Sauer's playing on the previously unreleased closer, "Variations on Redford," another duet with Wollny, is even more spare and melodic, there's always an adventurous, avant-tinged undercurrent that distances him from the mainstream.
