Alas this lp somehow ended up getting urinated on by rats while it was in storage some years ago,and i hate cleaning records, a laborious extremely dull process process...
I think i said in an earlier post that this was somehow reminiscent of the Canterbury scene, i was thinking of Egg, which the instrumentation at times suggests.. i obviously hadn't listened to it in a while, because its nothing like that, just great British free Jazz really., Legendary bassist Chris Laurence is kept incredibly busy on this one.
Lysis was and still is (now called Australysis)Roger Deans baby, i saw them a handful of times in Sydney in the late 80's early 90's, Usually starting with a set of Free improvisations for trio or quartet, the second half often comprised of Contemporary compositions by the likes of Brian Ferneyhough, and Xenakis.
they've released a few Cds as Australysis
check out their Webpage
and there's a great 2 disc set called Lysis lives available here at the Australian Music Center
PS ... would be nice to hear the Lysis Album with Alan Tomlinson, if anyone has it!
The picture above depicts a part of the interior of the Kurfürstliches Schloss in Mainz, Germany. Some may wonder what the Schloss had to do with the annual Treffen in Baden-Baden, but as it happened, the 1977 Treffen culminated in a concert in front of an audience at the Schloss. The concert took place after rehearsals at the SWR studios in Baden-Baden, the usual locality of the Treffens over the years.
In contrast to the 1970 Treffen which we posted a little while ago, the 1977 one was a more consolidated affair with a smaller cast of characters. The core appears to be Mumps, a slightly extended version of the John Surman - Barre Phillips - Stu Martin trio with Albert Mangelsdorff making it a quartet. To this core is added vocalist Karin Krog (whose collaborations with Surman have continued apace ever since), guitarist Attila Zoller, trumpetist Tomasz Stanko, pianist Stan Tracey, tenor saxophonist Johnny Griffin and bassist Motoharu Yoshizawa. The brunt of the cast was also on the 1970 sessions, leaving Griffin, Tracey and Yoshizawa as the new ingredients to the mix.
As usual there are full group performances as well as several splits into duos and trios, though no pure solo performances on this set of tunes. Less rowdy and rambunctious than some of the predecessors, the accent is here on solidly grounded modern jazz, some anchored in reworkings of Monk standards, others venturing into ambient landscapes - with synths and abstract vocalese. Some of the rehearsal pieces reappear in the concert, also a regular feature of the Treffens.
I can't dish up seven hours this time, but there should be enough here to sink one's tastebuds into. I find myself liking this set better than some of the earlier ones, possibly because it sounds more coherent and consoliated. In any case, enjoy!

I've been playing this a lot since posting the previous session by this marvellous trio.
I'm not sure why I like them so much. I think it might have something to do with them having the same number of letters in their names.

I got the following information with the cdr: Recorded on 23.April 1979, (probably) at the Von-der-Heydt-Museum, Wuppertal, Germany
Searching the internet I found the following: 7. Wuppertaler Free Jazz Workshop 19.- 22.4.79 (Flyer)
And also that Peter Kowald was responsible for the realisation of museum concerts at the Von der Heydt Museum Wuppertal 1972-75 and Wuppertaler Free Jazz Workshop 1973-82.
So - either the concert was at April 23.1979 and not in the Museum or it was there but not on the given date!?
However it's fantastic music.
.. some years ago i believe we posted a contemporaneous show recorded from the Audience at Angouleme FR. without Wadada.Leo Smith.. i'll try to reupload that soon..
As with most Recordings on Kharma , which was run on a shoe string budget, the sound is a little one dimensional, whatever its sonic shortcomings Musically this is superb!
As i may have mentioned a few thousand times ... for me Lowe was the greatest!.. and he is certainly Sorely missed.
his late work has equal gravitas , go to the cadence website and check the audio samples of 'Vision Blue', Bodies and Soul'...' Legends streets one and two'
