Albert Mangelsdorff was one of the most accredited and innovative trombonists of modern jazz who became famous for his distinctive technique of playing multiphonics. Mangelsdorff was born in Frankfurt and had violin lessons as a child and was self-taught on guitar. His brother, alto saxophonist Emil Mangelsdorff, introduced him to jazz. After the war Mangelsdorff was working as a guitarist and took up trombone in 1948. In the 1950s Mangelsdorff played with the bands of Joe Klimm, Hans Koller, Jutta Hipp, as well as with the Frankfurt All Stars.
