Update: Recently I've re-listened to this album. And I enjoyed it even more than a few years ago.
IMO it's a minor classic -
A meeting between the eastern and the western part of Germany. It was not the first one.
Already before 1973 Jost Gebers fom FMP brought musicians from West-Berlin to the City's eastern part. These meetings/concerts between musicians from the DDR and the "West" were at the beginning illegal.
A concert by the Irène Schweizer Quartet on October 1973 marked the beginning of official encounters. The relationship to the DDR administration remained somewhat fragile and demanded creative input especially from Jost Gebers.
It is safe to say that the reunion was already on it's way before anyone even imagined the german reunification.
This recording - made two years before the wall came down - is a superb example of this notion.
But luckily the music does offer a much broader view of sound - humour included.
It's not necessary to introduce Günter "Baby" Sommer. Ekkehard Jost is mostly known as the author of seminal books about European Jazz (among others).
By no means only a theoretician he is also an accomplished reedist with a preference for the low tones. An original musician who deserves a wider recognition.
His own label Fish Music has up to date 14 releases from which only the first three LPs are deleted.
The CDs are still available from himself.
His examination of folk music is singular insofar as the original feeling remains intact even when the music becomes "abstract". Clear structures but still some sense of wonder.

There were a couple of requests for this one, so I thought I might as well put it at the top of the front page as it was originally posted quite a while ago, back in February 2008. Otherwise it is as it was, but with a new link at the bottom of the comments section. Posted back then by Boromir:
This trio is unlike any of the other projects that Ken Vandermark's been involved in. There's none of the wild energy found in Vandermark 5 and his work with The Thing. The trio was formed to carry on the style of the 1960s drumless trio of Jimmy Giuffre. The influence is obvious, though the music they play is not a straight tribute to Giuffre. Vandermark plays clarinet on all tracks. The music is melodic and reflective, and is a tribute to Vandermarks flexibility. He is well accompanied by an excellent Swedish pairing.

The concert was broadcast on Swedish radio. Sound quality is excellent. Thanks to jazzrita for seeding this fine concert.
Link in comments.
I'd certainly have mistaken the guitarist as Ralph Towner in a blind fold test!
And a dash of early 60's Jimmy Giuffre.
Gorgeous tunes too.

Ps , i recently finally found the correct belt for my turntable, which is now running much more accurately.
This one probably comes from dime, but i got it from torrents. Thanks to previous uploaders.

Here's another one, reactivated from the early days of the blog, posted back in 2009, again due to a request. This time I did not have to go the archives to find it; instead went to the Rutracker torrent site and lo and behold, there it was! Only difference was that a audiochecker log file was attached, informing me that the files are 99.5 per cent compact disc digital audio, which is kinda funny considering the file was taken from a fine old rusty analogue lp. Stuff travels, eh? Anyway, enjoy the cacophony!
Original post follows:
While in the business of resurrecting old BYG Actuel records, here's another one, also posted on the Church#9 blog, then in the mp3 format, but again upgraded to a lossless audio format for posting here.
How to characterise this one? It is what it is, I guess. To some, an inpenetrable wall of sound, to others a no holds barred piece of collective improvisation. However which way it is viewed, assessed or interpreted, it's a piece which hardly had any precedents and hardly has seen any successors. Or maybe it has, but in terms of intensity and aural onslaught, rare by most standards.
A veritable star-studded cast of free jazz maestros on this 28-minute piece:
Bernard Vitet - trumpet, french horn
Grachan Moncur III - trombone
Archie Shepp - soprano sax
Anthony Braxton - soprano and alto sax
Kenneth Terroade - tenor sax
Dave Burrell - piano
Alan Silva - violin
Leroy Jenkins - violin, viola
Beb Guerin, Malachi Favors - bass
Claude Delcloo - drums

Stivín's album Zodiac (Zvěrokruh in Czech, released 1977) was never performed live, until Spring 2007, in time for 40th anniversary of original creation. From studio version, posted here before too, Stivín retained original participants except Slovak pianist Gabriel Jonáš, who was busy at the time and was replaced by Karel Rúžička. Added were vibraphonist Radek Krampl and Stivín's occasional internatinal partners Ali Haurand and Daniel Humair. Various medieval melodies are used in choir paqrts. Result is still vital mix of classical & early music, folklore and jazz.
