Several weeks ago I was doing research for some liner-notes. Eagerly searching for information also at the www I came across a book called "Postserielle Musik und Free Jazz" by Hans Kumpf.
The contents of the book did not help in my search. But I encountered some informations (and a score) of Manfred Schoof's "Ode".
Luckily I found the music in the collection of a friend who generously send me the files.
"Ode" never was available officially although it seems to be a rather important piece of music for the development of German (European) Free Jazz.
Schlippenbach's "Globe Unity 70" is or better was available through Atavistic.
Seemingly it's OOP at the moment - therefore I left it for your enjoyment.
The title of Brötzmann's tune "Drunken in the Morning Sunrise" reminded me about the circumstances for the recording sessions of "Machine Gun".
Brötzmann and Buschi Niebergall went - after the first part of the session - for some beers.
Eventually they took shelter for a nap at a building lot. Next morning Niebergall and Brötzmann woke up, had a mouthful of beer and went back to the "Lila Eule" for the second part of their recording session......

Recorded at Gateway Studios, Kingston Upon Thames
Broadcast 5th November 2004, BBC Radio 3, Jazz on 3
From a live RAI3 broadcast last night from Sant'Anna Arresi, here is the Large Ensemble with William Parker as guest on bass and exotic reeds(!). There are echoes from many different elements of American and European free & improvised music, but also voices, timbres and rhythms that seem new, and which build towards a propulsive force in the final section. The encore is quite different, and equally interesting. I listened to the broadcast and was enthralled, and will spend more time with this over the next few weeks to listen to it properly - its depth, density and intensity demand that.
This remarkable album was reissued on CD third times, but none of it is recently available. Earliest One Way Records version sounded poor, next issue on Disconforme seems fine to me sonically - I prefer it before latest release on Eclectic Disc (I was hoping in another issue on their succesors Esoteric Recordings, but they seems to have different preferences). So here is Disconforme sound with scans of Eclectic Disc booklet w/liner notes by Sid Smith and song lyrics.
Not as much avant jazz, but really experimental songwriting. And first meeting of Julie and Keith Tippett, I can strongly recommend also their latest song based project - Nostalgia 77 Sessions feat. Keith and Julie Tippett on Thru Thougts label.

This is a new flac rip
Takao Haga, alto saxophone, voice
Pinakotheca - PRL 8
Yaqub Malik (formerly Mack Spears) .... who at 19 was chosen as the successor to Charlie Parker & shared the stage with Bud Powell, Duke Jordan, Elmo Hope & even the legendary Miles Davis....
About six years ago I got this rip from another blog. I don't remember from where. Probably it was El Reza's old blog.
But this rip is in flac (I checked it) and not in mp3.
However - thanks to the original uploader and for the LP rip.
Two weeks ago I visited a friend in Potsdam (near Berlin). During the two days of my visit he got the LP.
We listened to it and I've again enjoyed especially the first track on side A.
But the whole LP is thoroughly enjoyable. This is how I was reminded about the files on my pc.
I've removed manually a few clicks and one heavy point of blasting - that's it.
More info about Malik Yaqub you'll find here and here. Some more in Spanish here and here.
