There was a request for this one, so another dip into the archives.
This is a tentet recording from 1977, out on the ICP's own label, and comprising a, shall we say, star-studded bunch of continental free jazzers. Not your usual 40-minute blow-out, but a genre-bending exercise in burlesquerie, circus, old-style waltz, march tunes and what not. Not unlike what the Willem Breuker Kollektief would get up to (with which this troupe is strongly connected). Altogether jolly delightful, I'd say.
Line - up:
Misha Mengelberg, piano;
John Tchicai, alto and soprano saxophones;

The record was posted on the Swami Hermeticus Solus blog which appears to have folded and as a contiguous side one and two. Anybody is free to split the sides into separate tracks, if one should so wish, but I'm reposting it as it was.
Enjoy! (I did)
