One of the earliest albums on the Free Jazz Productions label – a large group session led by trumpeter
Manfred Schoof, and featuring a wealth of great talents from the European avant garde of the 60s – including Peter Brotzmann
on tenor, Enrico Rava on trumpet, Irene Schweizer and Alexander Von Schlippenbach on piano, Derek Bailey on guitar, Evan Parker on soprano sax, Paul Rutherford on trombone, and both Han Bennink
and Pierre Favre on drums! The album features one long track – Schoof's "European Echoes" – the kind of extended, freewheeling, large group improvisation that was exemplary of the united front being expressed across nations by the free jazz movement of the late 60s. Still as powerful today as it was back then!
