Musical Monsters ... CD Intakt (Switzerland), 1980. New Copy ...
Out Of Stock
An unheard Don Cherry performance from the start of the 80s – and easily one of his most powerful recordings from the time! The vibe here is very free, open, and bold – with Don blowing much sharper notes on trumpet than some of his airier recordings of the 70s – urged on by the ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A 50th anniversary tribute to one of the most important groups on the European avant scene in the 70s – one of the first large improvising ensembles, led by pianist Alexander Von Schlippenbach – who's still very firmly at the helm in this recent recording!

Reedman Jurg Wickihalder is definitely the star of the trio here – really setting the tone with his fast flurry of notes and sounds on soprano, alto, and tenor sax – often blown with a deftness that's amazing, especially when he hews to more tuneful territory! Drummer Lucas Niggli can ... (Jazz) read moreCD
