The Manfred Burzlaff Quartet played daily from 1963 to 1971 at the legendary Old Eden Saloon in Berlin's Charlottenburg district (Germany). In 1965, US singer Gloria Steward joined the club's house band. For years, the band played daily from 10 p.m. to three in the morning. Burzlaff's band during this time included Bob Degen (piano), Michael Dennert (drums) and Michael Bahner (bass).

Manfred Burzlaff (1932-2015) was a German jazz musician (vibraphone and composition). In the 1950s he met jazz greats such as Chet Baker and Stan Getz, first in Paris and later in Berlin. The list of names can be prominently continued: Art Farmer, Albert Mangelsdorff, Jim Hall, Lionel Hampton, Dexter Gordon and many more. He wrote soundtracks for over 40 films and also for commercials. He was a lecturer at the "Hochschule der Künste Berlin" (HdK) and worked as a music teacher at the Neukölln Music School.

The album "Jazz For Dancing" was produced in 1965 in a 500 LP edition. The freelance producer Heino Gaze organized the recording in the Audio Tonstudio in Berlin-Lichterfelde, which was released under license from the Swiss record company Elite Records. This production with the songs of Old Eden is the only recording of Gloria Steward and thus an important sound document for the Berlin period of that time. The U.S. forces maintained their occupation sector in southwest Berlin from 1945 to 1994. The jazz concerts meant a piece of home culture for many US-Americans, which is why many tables at Old Eden were reserved exclusively for them. A look at the song list and the origin shows the American Songbook with danceable standards from the popular jazz scene. The perfectly produced double gatefold box comes with an insert sheet with all the important information about the production as well as photos of the original tapes.
