This is an audience recording - not as sonically excellent as the two previous EPT posts.
But the music is again top notch and certainly worth a listen.

Great version of Stańko Quartet, which recorded albums Matka Joanna and Leosia. This collection on Polish label Gowi preceeded them, and songs 3 and 4 were recorded again at Rainbow Studio for ECM. Bosonossa is out of print for long years - I remember Czech distributor for Gowi telling me when I saw empty jewel box with cover in his shop that the master was lost and cd will not be re-pressed. Radio broadcast with this line-up from 1996 was posted earlier by Andy an can be found here. Enjoy.

One good Sol brother once commented how it’s better to share this stuff than to have a pile of cassettes doing nothing in a box. So here’s another one that won’t eventually end up in a skip without a trace. If any of you connoisseurs out there can help with titles, that would be appreciated.

Alm Records - AL-4
Some of you may recall this album which was out on the MPS label in 1970. It featured American and European musicians in the free jazz idiom, many of the former affiliated with the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM), based in Chicago. The colloquial title, "Gittin' to know y'all" underlined the Baden-Baden sessions as a meeting point and as a meeting of minds.
Of course, the record could only be an excerpt of everything that happened, so here is a much fuller compilation of the meetings. I can't say whether this one is truly comprehensive, but in any case, what's on the table are approximately three and half hours of collaborations. This is a follow-up to earlier postings of the 1967, 1971 and 1976 meetings. We still have the 1970 and 1977 sessions to go, so hang in there.

This concert was recorded 15 months after the LP "Flaps" here.
Part of "Flaps was released on CD there. Lacy and Koglmann made one more LP where Bill Dixon + Koglmann (without Lacy) can be heard on the first side . A few tracks also made it on to the mentioned CD.
But this recording remains unreleased except the first track:

Take a look at the artwork of the LP.
Some translations: 'Wünschelrute' means divining rod / dowser. 'Weanerisch Dearn' is the Vienesse girl in Vienesse dialect and finally a bird is "Der Vogel".
