Hans Gertberg developed in 1958 at the suggestion of Rolf Liebermann from the existing since 1952 studio jazz concert series, the concept of the NDR Jazz Workshop. The broadcaster invited leading jazz musicians from different countries to come, gave them space for a week and the task of working together to develop a concert program. This created a podium for the jazz musicians to "develop their art free of commercial pressure". In the resulting concerts, which were then broadcast on radio and television broadcasts later, the audience had the opportunity to "Jazz of international music greats, which would normally never meet each other"
21 February 1958 (West Germany)
