Out Of Stock


4.50 5

Startling work from Denmark's Contemporary Jazz Quintet – a key 60s ensemble with a raw power that put them at the forefront of the European experimental scene of the time! The group has a way of playing with sound and space through their improvised solos – very "new thing" in execution, with echoes of the work of the New York Contemporary Five, and some of the other groups of the American scene of the time. The group features Hugh Steinmetz on trumpet, Franz Beckerlee on alto, Steffen Andersen on bass, and Bo Thrige Andersen on drums – plus the amazing addition of Niels Harrit on "saw" – an actual saw that's played as a tuned instrument, and which delivers these incredible sounds as the recording moves on. The work's divided up into 5 segments, each differently-numbered "actions".  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Balls is right – as that's certainly what the powerhouse sax of Peter Brotzmann had on this early session! The album's a landmark in the FMP tradition – recorded in 1970 with a frenetic Han Bennink on drums, a completely free Fred Van Hove on piano, and a masterful Brotzmann on tenor, ... CD

Very free work from the duo of Joe Maneri and Peter Dolger – playing here in open, unstructured format that predates later experiments on labels like ESP and Impulse! Maneri's playing alto sax for the date, and Dolger's on drums – and the performance of "Peace Concert" runs ... CD
